The Roaring Fork Club in Basalt has retained its designation as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP). To achieve certification, a course must demonstrate it maintains a high degree of environmental quality in several areas including environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education, integrated pest management, water conservation and water quality management. The program is endorsed by the United States Golf Association and provides information and guidance to golf courses in environmental planning.
Matt Brewer, golf course superintendent, led the effort to maintain sanctuary status, and was recognized for Environmental Stewardship by Audubon International.
The Roaring Fork Club was achieved sanctuary status in 2001, and is one of 641 golf courses in the world to receive this honor.
