Trump Golf Commits to Environmental Certification in Audubon International
“Golf at Trump National Doral is becoming more of an environmental experience every day.”

        The ACSP (Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program) for Golf Courses is an award winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect our environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. By helping people enhance the valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency, and minimize potentially harmful impacts of golf course operations, the program serves as a vital resource for golf courses.
        Focused attention on the recently redesigned “New” Blue Monster at Trump National Doral may have contributed to Donald Trump’s recent decision to enroll Trump Golf in Audubon International’s certification program for golf courses.
        Trump National Doral is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, and now Trump Golf has announced that all of its courses will pursue the hallowed environmental certification. This includes all 20-some Trump Golf courses which are located on 14 Trump Golf properties in the U.S. and two in Scotland.
        “I have a deep respect for Audubon International’s work,” said Donald Trump, chairman and president of the Trump Organization. “They help courses protect the natural assets that are part of the golf experience: nature, coastlines, rivers, grasses and trees. I’m proud that Trump Golf courses are located in some of the most beautiful places with stunning views and environmental features.
        Preserving the landscapes that make golf such a great experience has always been important to me personally and throughout Trump Golf. Doral, which is already certified, is an example of how Audubon International helps us care for the environment while maintaining high standards for play.”
        Audubon International, a not-for profit organization, works to protect and enhance the natural resources of properties and helps improve the environmental sustainability of each facility’s overall design and operations. The majority of Trump Golf’s courses are enrolled in the organization’s largest program called the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf. In this program, each golf course will undergo a review process examining environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, and water quality management, with a goal of making voluntary improvements toward greater sustainability. In addition, outreach and environmental education are required components of the program.
        “Trump Golf is nationally and internationally known for its premier golf courses and has emerged as a global leader in the golf industry,” said Ryan Aylesworth, President & CEO of Audubon International. “We are excited to work directly with the Trump Organization and help Trump Golf both achieve bold environmental goals and promote their success industry-wide. This commitment will demonstrate how golf facilities offering the highest level of playability and guest experience can be designed and managed to simultaneously improve environmental quality, conserve water and energy, protect and restore wildlife habitat, and safeguard a wide range of other nature resources.”
