The Club at Flying Horse Recognized for Environmental Excellence
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – The Club at Flying Horse has retained its designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program.
Participation is designed to help course personnel plan, organize, implement, and document a comprehensive environmental management program and receive recognition for their efforts. To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas including: Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management.
"The Club at Flying Horse has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property," said Tara Donadio, Director of Cooperative Sanctuary Programs at Audubon International.
The Club at Flying Horse is one of 44 courses in Colorado and 892 courses in the world to hold the honor. Golf courses from the United States, Africa, Australia, Central America, Europe, South America, and Southeast Asia have also achieved certification in the program. The golf course was designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 2013. After designation, courses go through a recertification process every three years.
This year the recertification process, coordinated by Devin Mergl, 2nd Assistant Golf Course Superintendent, required a visit by a local community representative. Joe McCleary, President of the Colorado Golf Association, was given a tour of the course and sent his observations to Audubon International. “The Club at Flying Horse’s commitment to the environment enhances the lives of wildlife, golfers and everyone that spends time on the property,” McCleary reported.
“We see the site visit as an important component of a course’s recertification,” stated Donadio. “It provides an objective verification of some of the more visible aspects of the course’s environmental management activities. In addition, it offers an opportunity for golf course representatives to share publicly some of the voluntary actions they have taken to protect and sustain the land, water, wildlife, and natural resources around them.”
