The Bolingbrook Golf Club has achieved designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses.

Jeff Gerdes, golf course superintendent, completed the effort to obtain sanctuary designation on the property. Bolingbrook Golf Club is one of over 900 courses in the world to hold the title of Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

"Bolingbrook Golf Club has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property," Christine Kane, CEO at Audubon International, said in a news release from Audubon International.

The Village of Bolingbrook and Mayor Mary Alexander-Basta are most appreciative to Bolingbrook Golf club for their efforts in water conservation, protecting nature wildlife and increasing native acreage on the property. Bolingbrook Golf Club is a community asset for all residents to enjoy.

"To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas," Kane said in the release.

These categories include: environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation and water quality management.

Bolingbrook Golf Club’s accomplishments include extensive native acreage on the property, reducing irrigated areas to conserve water, establishing buffers around water bodies and conducting outreach & education activities
