IGM and Environmental Stewardship

IGM and Environmental Stewardship

 

 

 

Everyday, at each golf course maintained by IGM, our managers are acutely aware of the impact our operations can have on the local, regional, and global environment. That is why we apply chemicals fastidiously and consistently with Integrated Pest Management (IPM) - the practice of scouting the golf course, discovering pests, determining thresholds when the pest populations reach damaging levels, and taking appropriate measures. These measures range from altering irrigation patterns and adjusting mowing heights to employing competing biological agents and applying traditional pesticides. The IPM strategy employs these measures in a sequence that has the least impact on natural environmental conditions to attain the desired result of reducing and maintaining pest populations below damaging levels


As active advocates of the environmental principles of Audubon International, we have registered all IGM-maintained properties in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. This program promotes ecologically sound land management and the conservation of our natural resources whereby golf courses can enhance and protect wildlife habitat and water resources.

IGM takes pride in its environmental leadership role in the golf business. In addition to having all of its facilities registered in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for golf courses, IGM has assisted over six facilities in achieving certification in the program. One of IGM's certified courses, Widow's Walk Golf Course, is an environmental research center built to assess the impact of golf course maintenance practices on the environment.

These are collaborative efforts with our clients and represent our desire to go above and beyond standard maintenance practices to get results for our clients.
