)-- The Jumping Brook Country Club recently joined Audubon Lifestyles and the International Sustainability Council as a Platinum Member to participate in the Sustainable Golf Facility Program.
Jumping Brook Country Club (http://www.jumpingbrookcc.com), is a private membership facility owned and operated by Matrix Golf & Hospitality. The 18-hole, 6,619 yard, par 72 golf course features bent grass greens, rolling fairways and meandering brooks throughout. The 1925 A.W. Tillinghast design, in collaboration with Willard Wilkinson, is a classic that has been restored by golf course architect, Ian Scott-Taylor of Wales.
By joining as a Platinum Member, The Jumping Brook Country Club has joined a growing network of golf facilities, businesses, municipalities, non-profits and others who are actively showing their support of Audubon Lifestyles and The International Sustainability. Audubon Lifestyles Platinum Membership was created to help foster sustainability by working with, and providing educational resources to individuals, businesses, organizations, universities, government entities, municipalities, communities, neighborhoods, and virtually anyone seeking assistance to balance the triple bottom line of people, profit, and planet where they live, work, and play.
In addition, The Jumping Brook Country Club’s membership and support allows Audubon Lifestyles and the ISC to expand their efforts to promote sustainability on golf facilities worldwide.
R. Eric Dodson, CEO of Audubon Lifestyles said, “We are very excited to welcome The Jumping Brook Country Club into the Audubon Lifestyles family. The Jumping Brook Country Club has shown that they are willing to become a global leader and advocate of sustainable causes by becoming a Platinum Member and by participating in the Sustainable Golf Facility Program they are leading by example. Their commitment and efforts in promoting sustainability on and off the golf course should be commended.”
Leading golf facilities like The Jumping Brook Country Club are finding innovative ways to improve their environmental and social performance. And their actions not only contribute to a cleaner, healthier and safer planet, but they also result in significant business and financial benefits. Sustainability is not an asset that can be bought or sold; however it is becoming an integral part of the way that golf facilities are being managed and operated.
Audubon Lifestyles Platinum Membership provides The Jumping Brook Country Club with a vast pool of resources assisting them with all of their sustainability efforts, and also allows for participation in the Audubon Lifestyles Sustainability Programming where businesses can actively work towards certification and seek to earn the Seal of Sustainability from the International Sustainability Council.
In addition, The Jumping Brook Country Club has earned the right to use the Audubon Lifestyles/ISC Platinum Member Logo on their educational and promotional materials, and will be listed on the Audubon Network for Sustainability as a Platinum Member.
