The Hong Kong Golf Club has joined the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Programme for Golf.
We at the Club are strong believers that golf can have a positive effect on the environment and, as such, we take an eco-friendly approach to our maintenance procedures at both our Fanling and Deep Water Bay sites.
Because of the importance the Club places on the environment – and visitors will be well aware of the rich variety of vegetation and wildlife that flourish on the courses – we have joined the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Programme for Golf.
This programme, which is endorsed by the United States Golf Association, enables golf facilities to protect the environment by enhancing precious natural areas and wildlife habitats.
In order to achieve Audubon certification, each golf facility is required to demonstrate that it is maintaining the highest degree of environment quality in many areas, including:
- Environmental Planning
- Wildlife and Habitat Management
- Outreach and Education
- Chemical Use Reduction and Safety
- Water Conservation
- Water Quality Management
We are confident that thanks to the maintenance practices in place and our ongoing education and outreach initiatives, the Club will achieve certification in the near future.
