Sustainability Matters

In our 125-year history, PG&CC has been an all-season private members club that offers golf, curling and social events in a welcoming environment surrounded by natural beauty!

We are devoted to a legacy that promotes responsible environmental stewardship & sustainability for future generations to enjoy!

To ensure this, our Board Of Directors embedded "sustainability" into the club's new 2021 - 2024 Strategic Plan. You can review this plan by clicking this link.

In early 2020, PG&CC decided to investigate the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP-G) (Audubon link).  We are beginning the process of a site assessment for this program.  While the achievement of  Audubon Certification is an ambitious project, it will assist in PG&CC’s environmentally conscious identification of needs, goals and priorities. Please review the link for more information.

In 2018, PG&CC, in collaboration with Trent University, conducted a Waste Audit Report which resulted in the establishment of compostable kitchen waste collection.  Since this time, other sustainability initiatives include sourcing local products, supporting green-initiated businesses as well as recognizing and removal of two invasive species, Dog Strangling Vine and Buckthorn. Please review the link for more information.
