Wyndham Championship: Keeping the "Green" in Greensboro

The 2018 Wyndham Championship returns to Greensboro’s Sedgefield Country Club this week as the last PGA Tour event of the regular season.  While the tournament is well known—it is the sixth oldest event on the PGA Tour—the commitment of the tournament to environmentally sustainable practices is less known. The tournament maintains a deep commitment to limiting its environmental impact and vows to keep the “green” in Greensboro in several ways. One is through continual monitoring of the sustainable practices of course management implemented by McConnell Golf, who maintain Sedgewick Country Club. A concrete example of this is using stabilized aqueous ozone (SAO™) from Tersano™as a commercial cleaner. The process uses ordinary tap water to create the cleaner, which is then changed back into harmless water and oxygen after the cleaning a variety of surfaces. This keeps harmful chemicals from entering the environment. McConnell Golf has also partnered with OnLink, a company that minimizes the chemicals and water use among golf course managers. By using state of the art monitoring and diagnostics provided by OnLink, Sedgewick Country Club is constantly looking to minimize their environmental impact. Wyndham Championship also looks to use recycled goods and has partnered with Unifi to provide on-site recycling. Unifi is a global textile manufacturer that makes usable fibers from common items like plastic bottles. By utilizing these and other sustainable practices, the Sedgefield Country Club and Wyndham Championship make sure to leave the environment in pristine condition for future generations to enjoy.
