Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System
Putting the Environment First, by Mark Leslie, Golf Course News
Richard Kerins, Co-owner & Certified Golf Course Superintendent, has qualified Tam O’ Shanter for membership in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System. This establishes our commitment to preserving the quality of our environment through projects such as enhancing wildlife habitats, conducting wildlife surveys, and mounting and monitory nest boxes. We also use integrated pest management (IPM) which employs natural pest management techniques to reduce the amount of pesticides used. Nature Trail signs are located on each tee, and describe the natural environment that surrounds you as you enjoy your round of golf. We hope these signs help you to become more aware of the environment of our part of northwestern Pennsylvania.
We offer nature walks guided by our Certified Golf Course Superintendent, Rick Kerins. A walk in nature can give you the small dose of wilderness you need to refresh your spirit. Nature walks present rare opportunities for first-hand learning and can be thrilling for adults and kids. 1 hour walk: $5 per person. Contact us for more information!
