Audubon International-Certified Golf Courses
Amherst Country Club is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, under the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System, the educational division of Audubon International. Amherst is one of many golf courses in the world to receive this honor, and one of the few golf courses, certified in New Hampshire. We have been certified since 1997.
Everything we do has the well being of all Earth’s creatures and landscapes in mind. The Natural Environment is important to us, and we strive to do what we can to preserve and protect its integrity.
The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses is an award winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect our environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. By helping people enhance the valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency, and minimize potentially harmful impacts of golf course operations, the program serves as vital resource for golf courses.
