TPC Stonebrae Is Awarded the ELGA Merit Award!
In 2008, when TPC Stonebrae was being designed and built, great lengths were taken to ensure that the natural habitats surrounding the course and community were protected and preserved. Every effort was made to be good stewards of the encompassing environment, with the 57-acre course incorporated into the natural contours of the land.
In 2010 TPC Stonebrae completed the final stages of environmental certification and is now recognized as a Certified Audubon Cooperative by Audubon International. To be considered for this certification, there are a number of requirements that must be met by the property, including wildlife habitat management, wetland establishment and enhancement and effective management of natural resources, native plants and animal species.
In addition, for the past three years, TPC Stonebrae Superintendent Dave Davies and his team have led the way in securing the prestigious Environmental Leaders in Golf Awards (ELGA) Merit award for TPC Stonebrae. Winners of this acknowledgement have proven themselves to go above and beyond environmental stewardship, often integrating effective management programs for accurate irrigation systems, extensive recycling programs and more. In 2011, TPC Stonebrae reached a 70% level of recycling, working towards a goal of 90% recycling throughout the entire facility.
And we’re excited to announce that for these continued efforts TPC Stonebrae once again is the recipient of the Merit award!
We want to extend a big thank you to Dave and his team for their dedication in always taking such great care to ensure that TPC Stonebrae maintains itself as a positive component of the overall environmental footprint!
