This is all part of making sure Oldfield uses “best practices” while maintaining its certification in the Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. It’s a job Bouknight has held for nearly years.
When he has free time, Bouknight likely won’t be found playing golf — though he does say, with a laugh, “I do spend a lot of time in the woods when I play golf.”
What excites Bouknight is venturing into the Lowcountry, camera in hand, to photographically record the flora and fauna that make up the natural environment surrounding golf courses.
“I’ve been a nature lover all my life,” he says. In October 2010, Bouknight’s photos were compiled in a book, “SC’s Lowcountry … Naturally,” and he has plans for a second book. His writing and photos have been featured in Dude, a magazine published quarterly by Oldfield for its members.
