Audubon International Certified



Recognized by Audubon International for Environmental Excellence



We'd like to congratulate and thank our entire Maintenance Team here at Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club for keeping up with the necessary standards to be recognized as an Audubon International Certified Golf Course. We're incredibly proud to be certified for our achievements in environmental sustainability (2018 to present), and we're fully committed to our organic maintenance program and continuing our progress as a steward to our property, our community and our environment as a whole.

What is the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses?

  • The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP) is an environmental education and certification program that helps golf courses protect the environment, preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf, and gain recognition for their efforts.

  • Through collaborative efforts that started in 1991 with the United States Golf Association, membership in the ACSP has steadily grown to include more than 2,300 golf courses in the United States and 36 countries worldwide.

Audubon Certification Objectives:

  1. Enhance wildlife habitats on golf courses by working with the golf course superintendent and providing advice for ecologically sound course management.

  2. Encourage participation in conservation programs by golfers, golf course superintendents, golf officials, and the general public.

  3. Recognize the people who are actively participating in environmentally responsible projects.

  4. Educate the public and golfing community about the benefits of golf courses and the role they play relative to the environment and wildlife.

What Does this Mean for Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club?

  • In order for Sagamore to reach certification, our course must demonstrate that we are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas. These areas include Environmental Planning, Wildlife and Habitat Management, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, Water Quality Management, and Outreach and Education. 

  • Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club is one of just five courses in New Hampshire to be certified, and we are the only course in the seacoast to hold this certification.

  • Globally, there only 900+ Audubon Certified Golf Courses, and Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club is incredibly proud to be recognized within this group

  • Both our staff and our golfers can take pride in knowing that SHGC provides significant wildlife habitat and is maintained in an environmentally responsible manner.
