Bound on its western edge by mangroves and a salt water slough and on its eastern edge by a freshwater slough, the Sanctuary and core Golf routing runs through the upland pine flat woods and adjacent scrub habitat of our unique western Florida coast. By way of pre-golf introduction by staff, playing the golf course and the tournament, including an on course educational signage and informational yardage book that serves as guidance and an 18 hole Q&A resource, participants will take a self-guided educational tour of an Audubon Sanctuary Golf Course truly rooted in our community and environment.
