If anything is truly green in Palm Beach County – in more ways than one – it’s our world-class golf courses.
Take, for example, the Osprey Point Golf Course in Boca Raton. Located in Burt Aaronson Couth County Regional Park, Osprey Point not only adheres to the strict operating guidelines established by Audubon International, but it maintains environmental turf grass (Seashore Paspalum) on its greens, tees and fairways. In addition, Osprey Point has increased acres of natural habitat and enhanced protection efforts on its site since opening to the public in late 2010.
Palm Beach County entrepreneurs and corporate executives who play golf for pleasure and business can show their true green colors by patronizing the following courses that are listed as Audubon certified cooperation sanctuaries:
Frenchman’s Reserve in Palm Beach Gardens
High Ridge Country Club in Lantana
The Links at Boynton Beach
Old Marsh Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens
Quail Ridge Country Club in Boynton Beach
Also, it should be noted that in 2011, Broken Sound Country Club in Boca Raton was named one of 10 eco-friendly golf courses in the United States on National Geographic.com.
