Tam O’Shanter Golf Course has qualified for the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System. This membership establishes our commitment to preserving the quality of our environment through projects such as enhancing wildlife habitats, conducting wildlife surveys and mounting and monitoring nesting boxes. We also use integrated pest management (IPM) which employs natural pest management techniques to reduce the amount of pesticides used.
We hope you will read the green signs (like the one to the left) which are located on each tee to become more aware of the natural environment that surrounds you as you enjoy your round of golf.
1. Consider getting involved in local and national conservation efforts. National Wildlife Federation has a Backyard Habitat Program which provides information on planting for wildlife and a certification process for your own backyard.
2. When you play a round at Tam O’Shanter you help the environment because part of your green fees goes to support turf research and some conservation groups. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read these markers . . . we hope you enjoy your game!
