THE SHELL POINT GOLF COURSE RECEIVES CERTIFICATIONS
FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 26, 2012)

Story Photo The Shell Point Golf Club was recently awarded certifications in multiple areas for The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP-Golf). The newest certifications are Water Quality Management and Chemical Use Reduction and Safety. Shell Point Golf Club already had the certifications for Environmental Planning and Water Conservation, and is working towards earning the remaining two categories of Wildlife/Habitat Management and Outreach and Education.

“Achieving certification in ACSP demonstrates leadership, commitment, and high standards of environmental management, and here at Shell Point we want to make sure we offer the best course for golfers, while protecting our surroundings and the environment,” said Mark Jacobs, Golf Course Superintendent for Shell Point Golf Club.

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses is an award winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect their environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. This program helps officials (Golf Course Superintendents) enhance the valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency, and minimize potentially harmful impacts of golf operations.
