AN AUDUBON INTERNATIONAL CERTIFIED GOLF COURSE
Upholding the PGA TOUR’s commitment to environmental excellence and sustainability of its golf courses, TPC Colorado has joined the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program and is committed to operational plans that practice mindful environmental management.
Audubon International is a prestigious program that recognizes golf courses that uphold the highest standards to protect the natural environment and heritage of their course.
Here at Heron Lakes, we are proud to be home to one of the largest Great Blue Heron rookeries in the state of Colorado. In an effort to protect the natural habitat of these birds and all wildlife that inhabit our community, the agronomy team has planted hundreds of acres of milkweed, native grasses and plants, built bird boxes, installed water diffusers for natural algae reduction and other measures to reduce the use of chemicals and actions to conserve the amount of water used in course maintenance.
TPC Colorado at Heron Lakes also participates in the Monarchs in the Rough program designed by the Audubon and the Environmental Defense Fund to augment natural occurrences of milkweed and other butterfly-attracting plants to provide a habitat for local monarch butterfly populations.
