How many golf clubs can claim to be both GEO & Audubon International certified? Al Mouj Golf is one of the less than 20 golf clubs worldwide who can be proud of this high-level of achievement.
This is my main reason why I thought to share with you that Al Mouj Golf
has now achieved for the 3rd time the “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” title/recognition through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program.
The essence of the above-mentioned program of Audubon International is an education and certification program to help organizations and businesses protect our environment while enhancing their bottom line.
The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses endorsed by the United States Golf Association (USGA).
Al Mouj Golf was the first golf club in the Middle East and North African region in 2014 to be certified by this prestigious organization.
Nasser Al Sheibani, CEO of Al Mouj Muscat said
“I am incredibly proud of the team at Al Mouj Golf for successfully retaining the natural heritage of our golf course, as well as being recognized by Audubon for the third time.
This is a significant environmental and sustainability achievement in balancing such a wonderful lifestyle asset with nature. Maintaining the biodiversity of the grounds at Al Mouj Golf is central to providing golfers with a world-class facility.
Responsible travel & Al Mouj Golf
Responsible travel is not a new trend, however, it is building momentum and Al Mouj Golf should take advantage of it.
While we are focusing on sustainability and environment protection, we should take these issues seriously as well:
- destination aesthetics,
- dark skies,
- destination identity and distinctiveness,
- architectural preservation,
- food waste,
- the well-being of destination communities, etc.
