Ute Creek Golf Course Recognized for Environmental Excellence
LONGMONT, CO – Ute Creek 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.
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.
"Ute Creek Golf Course 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 Christine Kane, CEO at Audubon International.
Ute Creek Golf Course is one of 45 courses in Colorado and 905 courses in the world to hold the honor. Ute Creek is also one of the most popular golf courses in northern Colorado, designed by the Robert Trent Jones II Group. 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 Dan Reese, Sr. Maintenance Technician required a visit by a local community representative. Deryn Davidson, Horticulture Extension Agent at Colorado State University, was given a tour of the course and sent her observations to Audubon International.
“We see the site visit as an important component of a course’s recertification,” stated Kane. “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.”
