Golf Course at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff Certified as Audubon Sanctuary

Golf Course at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff Certified as Audubon Sanctuary
The official designation from Audubon International ushers the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature into an award-winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect the environment.

Recognition as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary requires an extensive and exhaustive review process. Over the course of two years, the club's Golf Course Superintendent Chris Johnson was tasked with submitting volumes of information and reports about the May River Golf Club's environment stewardship for review. After careful consideration, Audubon International awarded the May River Golf Club certification in all seven categories, including case study, environmental planning, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education, and water quality management.

For visiting golfers and resort staff, the recognition from the organization reaffirmed that Audubon International's Standard Environmental Management Practices are part of day-to-day operations at the May River Golf Club.

Lined with majestic century-old oaks and serene native landscapes, the May River Golf Club runs 7,171 yards with several holes perched on the banks of the May River, offering a cool breeze and views of the marsh and dramatic tidal shifts.
