Kingwood Country Club golf course recognized for environmental excellence
- Written by Press Release
The Kingwood Country Club Golf Course has retained its designation as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for golf courses, an Audubon International program. To reach certification, a course must demonstrate a high degree of environmental quality in environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, and water quality management. Kingwood Country Club is one of 14 courses in Texas and 702 courses in the world to receive the honor. After designation, courses go through a recertification process every two years. Environmental expert Dr. Anthony Camerino visited the golf course as part of the recertification process and was pleased with the environmental stewardship efforts. The course staff maintains its grounds with effluent irrigation water and appropriate use of plant nutrients and protectants.
