The Fort Mill Golf Club golf course has achieved designation as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program.
“Fort Mill Golf Club has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property,” said Jim Sluiter, staff ecologist for the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Programs.
“Fort Mill is the third of our four golf courses to achieve this distinction,” said Tim Patterson, president of Leroy Springs & Co., which owns and operates the club. “It culminates a great deal of hard work and planning by Superintendent Noel Buchanan and his assistant, Nick Jackson, and I congratulate them on their success.”
