Marriott Golf Is Green

Marriott Golf recently announced the successful completion of the Company’s 2008 environmental program, as Camelback Golf Club in Scottsdale, AZ – the original Marriott Golf managed property – became Marriott’s 25th golf property to become a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

The Marriott Golf environmental program, which was announced in March of 2008 and now includes all golf properties throughout North America and one signature property in the Caribbean, further positions the Company as the industry’s premier “green” golf management organization, while reinforcing Marriott International’s worldwide commitment to environmental consciousness.  

Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries, which enable golf facilities to protect the environment by enhancing precious natural areas and wildlife habitats, are part of a systemwide commitment by Marriott International, Inc. to promote environmental stewardship.  In order to achieve Audubon Certification, a golf facility is required to demonstrate that it is maintaining the highest degree of environmental quality in many areas including Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach & Education, Chemical Use Reduction & Safety, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management.
