Commitment to promote the principles of sustainability
The Tournament Players Club (TPC) of Scottsdale recently joined Audubon Lifestyles and the International Sustainability Council as a Platinum Member, and are active participants in the Audubon Lifestyles Sustainable Golf Facility Program.


Home of the Waste Management Phoenix Open

TPC Scottsdale is located in Scottsdale, Arizona and only a half hour from Phoenix, TPC Scottsdale offers two legendary championship courses that are both open to the public to enjoy – the Stadium Course and the Champions Course. The Club is the permanent home to The Waste Management Phoenix Open (formerly The FBR Open), as well as the biannual host of the Champions Tour Q-School. TPC Scottsdale has been named “one of America’s best courses” by Golfweek magazine, one of the Top 50 Golf Resort Destinations in the World” by Condé Nast Traveler, and is consistently named one of the top courses in Arizona.
By joining as a Platinum Member, TPC Scottsdale has joined the growing network of golf facilities, businesses, municipalities, non-profits and others who are actively showing their support of Audubon Lifestyles and The International Sustainability Council. Audubon Lifestyles Platinum Membership was created to help foster sustainability by working with, and providing educational resources to individuals, businesses, organizations, universities, government entities, municipalities, communities, neighborhoods, and virtually anyone seeking assistance to balance the triple bottom line of people, profit, and planet where they live, work, and play.
In addition, their support and membership allows Audubon Lifestyles and the ISC to expand their efforts to promote sustainability on golf facilities worldwide.

Advancing sustainability through the golf industry

R. Eric Dodson, CEO of Audubon Lifestyles said, “I feel that when TPC Scottsdale joined as a Platinum Member that it immediately speaks volumes to the PGA Tour’s continued commitment in advancing sustainability for the entire golf industry. We are very excited to welcome TPC Scottsdale into the Audubon Lifestyles family.” Mr. Dodson continued by saying, “TPC Scottsdale’s active pursuance of certification and their desire to earn a 5 star rating by participating in the ISC Sustainability Audit is simply tremendous. Through the discussions that I have had with Jeff Plotts, Director of Golf Course Maintenance at TPC Scottsdale, I feel certain that TPC Scottsdale will emerge as a leader and model upon which other golf facilities should seek to emulate.
Leading golf facilities like TPC Scottsdale are finding innovative ways to improve their environmental and social performance. And their actions not only contribute to a cleaner, healthier and safer planet, but they also result in significant business and financial benefits. Sustainability is not an asset that can be bought or sold; however it is becoming an integral part of the way that golf facilities are being managed and operated. Just as a golf facility’s management practices influence business value, so do their sustainability initiatives.
“We are excited to join Audubon Lifestyles and the International Sustainability Council as a Platinum Member.” said Jeff Plotts, Director of Golf Course Maintenance at TPC Scottsdale. “TPC Scottsdale is committed to promoting the Principles of Sustainability and would encourage other golf facilities to participate as well.”
Audubon Lifestyles Platinum Membership provides TPC Scottsdale with a vast pool of resources assisting them with all of their sustainability efforts, and also allows for participation in the Audubon Lifestyles Sustainable Golf Facility Program where they are actively working towards certification and seek to earn a Sustainability Rating through the ISC.

Compare your golf course with top courses from around the world
Sustainability is arguably the most important issue affecting golf development today. A sustainable golf course is not only more efficient, it also ensures a better reputation. The Sustainable Golf Project benchmarks global golf courses on sustainability in order to help golf courses gain insight into how to become a (more) sustainable golf course.

A Sustainable Golf Program: Golf & Natur

Improved quality, better play, greater future
Golfclub München Eichenried, home of the BMW International Open in 2011, showcased some interesting sustainable initiatives. Last year, the golf course achieved silver certification in the German 'Golf & Natur' program. Golf courses are increasingly working on environmental issues such as water management and biodiversity. The largest golf event in Germany started to become more aware of its environmental impact and the golf course is now one of the 100 golf courses in Germany that are participating in the 'Golf & Natur' initiative.

Sustainable golf in Portugal

Belas Clube de Campo Senior Open de Portugal showcase on sustainable golf
Although sustainability on the Iberian Peninsula is still not widely embraced, the Senior Open de Portugal at the Belas Clube de Campo showcased many sustainable innovations. From the 29th of September until the 1st of October, the Belas Clube de Campo was the international platform for a sustainable golf event. A recycling program, water management, sustainability in the entire supply chain and strong local community involvement were strong proof points for the first sustainable golf event in Portugal and Spain.
