Evidently, golf courses in our area are starting to put a greater emphasis on natural and environmentally-friendly landscaping.
While our Central Ohio golf courses have been recognized for years as being superior courses, this is sure to improve their reputations even more so!

The recent Associated Press article I read noted that the New Albany Country Club has begun setting out bird boxes throughout the course.
Country Club officials have also stopped mowing some high grasses around the golf course in an effort to make the landscape a little bit more natural.
Here are some other steps the Country Club has taken to reach its goal:
- Adding more space to wildlife
- Cutting back on pesticide use
- Adding bird boxes
The result of their recent efforts to make the golf course more natural have been quite positive!
For one, the Country Club is saving money on lawn mowing!
Also, the new scenery is attracting new people to the golf course who are interested in seeing local flora and fauna while enjoying a round of golf.
Other Central Ohio golf courses that have taken a similar approach as the New Albany Country Club include:
- Blacklick Woods in Reynoldsburg
- Longaberger Golf Club near Nashport
New Albany Country Clubâ€™s efforts earned it a certification under an Audubon International program that encourages golf courses to be more environmentally-friendly.
Thatâ€™s because the higher grass and reduction of pesticides means that fewer pesticides are getting in the water of these courses.
