The American Society of Golf Course Architects throw their support behind Audubon Lifestyles

Audubon Lifestyles is delighted to have gained the support of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, for the Audubon Lifestyles Sustainable Golf Facilities Program (SGFP). Erik Larsen, President of the ASGCA wrote American Society of Golf Course Architectsin a letter of support; “The ASGCA’s 185 members look forward to seeing how the Sustainable Golf Facilities Program develops. The program certainly falls in line with the work of ASGCA members and the ASGCA pledges to communicate your results to our members, so they may continue this dialogue with their clients.”

The SGFP is a sustainability rating program that includes an audit component that focuses on economic, environmental and social sustainability at golf facilities. The program was designed with the help of the Golf Advisory Group, which included experts in sustainability and in golf course design, construction and management issues.

“We wanted to make certain that the SGFP was designed in such a way that golf courses who have participated in existing programs, and have already focused on environmental stewardship and other related topics got credit for what they have already accomplished,” said Eric Dodson, CEO of Audubon Lifestyles, “and I cannot express enough how grateful we are to have gained the support of the ASGCA to help us in that endeavor.”
