Sunriver Resort Selected as one of Four Golf Digest Green Star Award Recipients Nationwide
In the November 2009 issue of Golf Digest, Sunriver Resort is recognized as one of four nationwide recipients of the inaugural Green Star Award from Golf Digest, which recognizes the country’s most outstanding environmental leaders in golf.
Resorts were judged based on their comprehensive environmental program – for the golf course especially, but also the resort operation – that encompasses water use and conservation, energy use and conservation, waste disposal, pest and disease management, wildlife promotion, and contribution to the local environment and community.
“As stewards of Central Oregon’s abundant natural resources, we are constantly looking for ways to expand our environmental practices and decrease the Resort’s footprint,” said Tom O’Shea, managing director of Sunriver Resort. “These practices date back to the Resort’s inception nearly 40 years ago, when ‘green’ practices were virtually unheard of not just at golf resorts, but across all industries.”
Other Green Star Award recipients, which were chosen from Golf Digest’s initial pool of 400 resorts, included Pebble Beach (Calif.), Kiawah Island (S.C.), and Barton Creek (Texas).
