Shell Point Golf Club Receives Audubon Certification


FORT MYERS – Shell Point Golf Club has received certification in Environmental Planning from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System (ACSS), an international program administered by Audubon International, designed to help landowners preserve and enhance the environmental quality of their property.

Golf course superintendent, Terry Stoyer, and director of golf, Michael Mongoven, developed the environmental plan, and for doing so were recognized by Audubon International for their effort to plan and implement environmental stewardship.

“The open space of a golf course is utilized not only by golfers but is habitat for a variety of wildlife species,” explained Shawn Williams, staff ecologist for Audubon International. “We welcome Shell Point Golf Club’s commitment to the environment and managing the golf course with wildlife in mind.”

In addition to enhancing the habitat for birds and other wildlife, the affiliation with Audubon International will also allow the course to be certified in Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, Water Quality Management, and Outreach and Education.
