Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary

Come enjoy the fresh air! The Estero Country Club golf course has achieved designation as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program. Estero Country Club is the 100th course in Florida and the 696th in the world to receive the honor.

“Estero Country Club has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property,” said Jim Sluiter, Staff Ecologist for the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Programs.

The green and lush landscape of southwest Florida belongs to all of us; creatures large and small. We area lucky enough to be sharing our lives in one of the most beautiful tropics in the world, with some of the rarest flora and fauna. At Estero Country Club, we believe that it’s not only our duty, but our responsibility to do what we can to ensure the sustainability of our course. Achieving certification was a natural step for our community. We respect nature and love the game of golf…and it shows.
