Trump Golf Courses Seek Certification
Trump said the project seeks to protect and enhance the natural resources of each property and improve the environmental sustainability of each course’s operations.
Trump added that preserving the landscapes has been important to the golf operation and him. He cited Doral, which is certified, as an example of how Audubon International helps care for the environment while maintaining high standards for play.
The majority of Trump Golf’s courses are enrolled in the organization’s largest program called the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf. In this program, each golf course will undergo a review process examining environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, and water quality management—with a goal of making voluntary improvements toward greater sustainability. In addition, outreach and environmental education are required components of the program.
