One of my personal goals for Montgomery is to become a Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Golf Course. The first step to obtaining Audubon Certification for Montgomery Country Club is to complete a Site Assessment and Environmental Plan. We finally got this completed yesterday and submitted this to ACSP. Our goal is to be certified in all six recognized categories which are Environmental Planning, Wildlife and Habitat Management, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, Water Quality Management and Outreach and Education. We have already started compiling a lot of the documentation that we will need in each of the categories to continue to become certified. Once we gather all the information and documentation in a category we will submit that information to ACSP to achieve certification. Please be on the look out for more information on our progress and efforts to promote environmental stewardship.

With the extreme cold temperatures this week outside it made a perfect time to start refurbishing some of the course accessories like the benches. The benches that were on even number holes were brought in and the crew starting sanding them smooth getting them ready for stain and sealer. The crew has already completed repairing and painting the Adirondack chairs located behind 9 green and the first set of tee markers to go out in spring.
