Audubon Classic Sanctuary
Eco-City International Country Club became the first in the world to be designated a Classic Sanctuary by Audubon International in April 2009.
Its award-winning sister golf courses, Spring City Golf & Lake Resort (Spring City) in Kunming, China, and Ria Bintan Golf Club (Ria Bintan) in Indonesia, have also joined the league and attained the Classic Sanctuary status in 2010.
The certification attests to Eco-City International Country Club, Spring City and Ria Bintan’s longstanding reputation as first-class leisure and golf travel destinations in China and Indonesia. It also reflects Keppel Land’s commitment towards the environment and its continuous efforts to enhance quality and add premium value to its facilities and golf courses.
Through the Classic Programme, Audubon International offers planning, technical and educational consultancy to help existing developments protect natural resources both on and off site.
To achieve the Classic Sanctuary certification, Keppel Land’s golf courses have implemented measures in its golf course and estate which address the following areas:
- Environmental planning
- Best golf course management practice
- Wildlife and habitat enhancement
- Water quality management and conservation
- Integrated pest management
- Upgrade of the maintenance facilities centre
- Environmental monitoring training and outreach programme
