Greening the Greens
Golf courses have long been considered controversial, labeled as water wasters, blamed for disrupting wildlife, and accused of contaminating groundwater and surface water. While some golf courses stand guilty as charged, others stand apart, even working with environmental organizations to be better environmental stewards and well-regarded neighbors. The Ballantrae Golf and Country Club, in Stouffville, Canada, falls into the latter category. In fact, Ballantrae received "signature status" from Audubon International (headquartered in New York), for its conservation efforts during design and construction, and its ongoing activities.
