The Aspen Golf Club is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and has been since 1999. At that time we were one of only two hundred in the world and the fifth in Colorado to achieve this recognition. There are only 1000 courses worldwide with this certification.
This program is designed to recognize Golf courses that maintain and demonstrate a high degree of environmental quality. To achieve certification a Golf Course must certify in six categories: Environmental Planning, Wildlife and Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Integrated Pest Management, and Water Quality and Water Conservation.
The City of Aspen and the Aspen Golf Club are very proud of this certification and are very proud to be leaders in the community by being environmental stewards.
