Stone Creek Golf Club Recognized as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary"

Stone Creek Golf Club has once again been recognized as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses.

To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas including:

"Stone Creek 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," said Christine Kane, Executive Director at Audubon International.

"Clackamas County and Total Golf Management Services are very proud of our re-certification of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program that we became a part of 11 years ago,” said Gordon Tolbert, Owner and President, Total Golf Management Services, LLC. “Our commitment to environmental stewardship is one of our top priorities and will continue in the future."

Stone Creek Golf Club is one of 18 courses in Oregon and 911 courses in the world to hold the honor. After designation, courses go through a recertification process every three years.

"We see the site visit as an important component of a course's recertification," stated Kane. "It provides an objective verification of some of the more visible aspects of the course's environmental management activities. In addition, it offers an opportunity for golf course representatives to share publicly some of the voluntary actions they have taken to protect and sustain the land, water, wildlife, and natural resources around them."

About the course
Stone Creek is an 18-hole golf course owned by Clackamas County and operated by Total Golf Management Services. It was designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy and opened for public play in June of 2002. The course is laid out over 165 acres of land with old-growth Douglas Firs, lakes, four wetlands, and forty-three bunkers.
