We are thrilled to announce that Kensington Golf & Country Club has achieved the prestigious designation of being a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. This honor reflects our unwavering dedication to environmental stewardship, sustainable practices, and the enhancement of wildlife habitats.

“We are extremely honored to achieve the esteemed recognition as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses,” said David Krzywonos, General Manager of Kensington Golf & Country Club. “Our golf course operations team spearheaded this initiative a couple of years ago, which places us among an exclusive group of golf courses worldwide to earn this designation.”

A Commitment to Environmental Excellence

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program is an award-winning education and certification initiative by Audubon International. This program supports golf courses in their efforts to protect the environment and preserve the natural heritage of golf.

Our certification journey included a comprehensive evaluation of:

  • Chemical Use Reduction
  • Water Conservation
  • Water Quality Management

A Global Recognition

Kensington Golf & Country Club joins a select group of just 970 golf courses worldwide, including 111 in Florida, to receive this certification. Clubs must apply for recertification every three years to maintain this prestigious status.
