This awareness comes naturally since from our inception we were very aware of nature and its impacts on the golf course. We are located within a 100-year flood plain. Since we began the design of the golf course, we were aware of the need for sensitivity to the power and impact of the natural environment within and surrounding the golf course.
The course has been fully inundated with flood waters twice in 9 years with no noticeable damage. All but two greens and tee boxes are elevated to provide optimum drainage characteristics within the golf course environment.
Our goal as a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program is to better understand our impacts on the environment. We have begun an inventory of our tree-planting and the natural flora and fauna.
