Lookout Mountain Golf Club at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort has received certification in Environmental Planning from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP), an international program administered by Audubon International designed to help landowners preserve and enhance the environmental quality of their property.
The plan was developed by Paul Smith, golf course superintendent, who also was recognized for his effort to plan for environmental stewardship.
The ACSP provides an advisory service to help existing golf courses develop effective conservation and wildlife enhancement programs. This worldwide effort is coordinated by Audubon International and is sponsored in part by the United States Golf Association.
By joining and participating in the ACSP, Lookout Mountain Golf Club continues to be involved in projects that enhance habitat for wildlife and preserve natural resources for the benefit of the local community. These projects may include placing nesting boxes for cavity-nesting birds such as bluebirds and swallows; utilizing integrated pest management techniques; conserving water, and maintaining food and cover for wildlife.
