Environment

Taking the lead from the Wyndham Championship’s environmental sustainability award-winning partner and title sponsor, Wyndham Worldwide, and partners at McConnell Golf, the Wyndham Championship is committed to keeping the “green” in Greensboro. The tournament is invested in exploring and adopting innovative sustainable practices to improve the environment.

Sedgefield Audubon Certification:

This award winning education and certification program helps protect the valuable, natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide while improving efficiencies and minimizing the potentially harmful impacts of golf course operations. Led by McConnell Golf, Sedgefield Country Club is applying for this distinguished certification.

Sedgefield OnLink Program:

Through McConnell Golf’s partnership with OnLink, Sedgefield Country Club is incorporating metrics and monitoring benchmarks that help evaluate sustainability across its course leading to fewer chemicals, less water and less intensive maintenance.

Recycling Efforts:

  • Republic Services: The tournament is dedicated to minimizing the impact of its operations through an extensive, on-site recycling program.
  • Redistribution of Plants/Landscaping Materials: Landscaping is a big part of transforming the Sedgefield Country Club Ross course into a PGA TOUR venue. After the tournament, plants, trees and flowers are repurposed in multiple ways helping sustain our environment in multiple locations.

Green Cleaning Program:

To provide effective, innovative, and sustainable cleaning and sanitizing, Sedgefield Country Club uses stabilized aqueous ozone (SAO™) from Tersano™ for healthier properties and a healthier planet. The SAO system transforms ordinary tap water into a chemical-free commercial cleaner that eliminates germs, odors, stains, mold, mildew and other contaminants on any item or surface before changing safely back into water and oxygen.
