The Overlake Golf & Country Club golf course has achieved designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses.
The effort was led by Cory Brown, assistant golf course superintendent. Overlake is the 13th course in Washington and the 845th in the world to receive the honor.
To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that it is maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in such areas as environmental planning, wildlife & habitat management and outreach and education.
