We boast examples of several unique ecosystems, from salt marshes bordering Sinepuxent Bay and Assateague Island to native pine and hardwood forests. Freshwater wetlands and ponds, sections of native and naturalized grassland, and a magnificent tidal pool nestled between our tenth and eighteenth holes round out the attractions.
But we strive to do more than simply provide the beauty of nature, we include care for the environment in all aspects of this course. Reducing chemical use, integrating natural pest management methods, establishing buffer strips around wetlands to protect them from runoff, and recirculating irrigation water are but a few ways our commitment is expressed.
Scattered throughout the course are numerous nest boxes erected by our maintenance crew. Bluebirds, mallards, purple martins and sparrow hawks are but a few of the birds we provide homes for.
As the first fully certified Audubon Sanctuary in Maryland, we are extremely proud of our varied and numerous bird species. We hope that you take note of the many animals and birds you are sure to see.
