For years we have been working to limit or reduce our use of natural resources and how our golf course maintenance practices impact the environment and the wildlife that call our golf course "home". We manage our golf course with an environmental mindset because that is how we feel it should be done and it works great for us. We have been blessed over the years, and this year especially, with a great amount of recognition for our efforts and we are very grateful.
I am proud to announce that The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay has been selected as the 2013 National and Overall GCSAA/Golf Digest Environmental Leaders in Golf Award winner. To receive the phone call from Mr. Mark Johnson of GCSAA informing me of the selection was exciting and humbling. I am very proud of the work and passion the staff at Harrison Bay has put forth to garner us this recognition and I thank GCSAA and Golf Digest, along with the supporting sponsors Syngenta and RainBird, for making this award possible and for selecting our course.
