Bruce Constable, Master Superintendent, CGCS at Woodside Golf Course in Airdrie, Alta., is the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association’s Environmental Award recipient for 2013.
His selection for the award is based on the Golf Course Naturalization Process that has been established for the Woodside property.
Constable’s application reviewed the impacts on resource conservation including reductions in fuel, water, fertilizer, labour, equipment use and related inputs, wildlife habitat preservation and creation and community outreach.
Wildwood Golf Club became a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Golf Course in 2008. The golf course began its naturalization program in 2005 and continues to expand that program to include other components of the golf course.
The CGSA Environmental Achievement Award will be presented by Club Car representatives at the 2014 CGSA Awards Lunch, which will be held on Tues., Jan. 18t, at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver as part of the 2014 Canadian International Turfgrass Conference and Trade Show.
