Boundary Oak Golf Course Earns Audubon Certificaion

(PETALUMA, Calif.) - Northern California-based CourseCo, Inc, once again re-affirms its position as one of industry's foremost environmental stewards. The recent announcement of CourseCo-managed Boundary Oak Golf Course as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary marks it as only the 38th course in California to achieve such an honor.

Among that select group, CourseCo managed facilities comprise just under a third of those certified through the Audubon Program. With only 900 such certified courses worldwide, it is indeed an honor and a tribute to the efforts of Eddi Wahlborg, Superintendent at Boundary Oak, and to the CourseCo philosophy in its ongoing efforts to embrace and promote environmental harmony.

"Boundary Oak Golf Course is to be commended in providing a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property," said Joellen Lampman, Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Programs Director. To attain certification, a course must demonstrate a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas, including Wildlife and Habitat Management; Outreach and Education; Chemical Reduction and Safety; Environmental Planning; Water Conservation; and Water Quality Management. "We're extremely proud, and truly enjoyed the process" said Walhlborg. "It mirrored many of the goals and environmental philosophies that we share both personally and as a company." Built in 1969, and designed by Robert Muir Graves, Boundary Oak is a municipal facility in Walnut Creek, California, set in the rolling hills just below Mt. Diablo. It has been named "Best of the East Bay" by Diablo Magazine in 2010 and 2011.

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses provides guidance and information to help courses preserve and enhance wildlife habitat, and protect natural resources. It has been endorsed by the US Golf Association. Courses around the globe have been certified through the program, which is part of Audubon International.
