ACSP Golf Courses in South Carolina

By:Bob Gillespie

Eagles Pride Golf Course, located at the West Coast’s largest military installation of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., was the the 1,000th golf course to be designated a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary,” part of Audubon’s Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP) program, begun in 1991, that helps more than 2,300 U.S. courses protect the environment.

If such a system of caring for nature and a golf course’s surroundings is important to players, one needs look no further than South Carolina, which boasts 26 courses holding ACSP certification – including the state’s two best-known and highest-rated, The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort and Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head Island’s Sea Pines Resort.

The program issued its first certification in 1993, and now includes courses in North and Central America, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.

Here’s a complete listing of S.C. courses holding ACSP certification. For more information, click here.
