Why Carman Creek is an Environmental Award Winning Facility

Starting back in the early 90's when we began building the golf practice facility we made a conscious business decision to be environmentally friendly and practice sustainable turf management. Over the years we have experimented with numerous organic fertilizers, compost tees, worm castings, etc., and the major learning is;

"The fewer chemicals you use, the less you need to use."

In the golf business you are very close to the environment. The staff and customers at Carman Creek, have a special place in their heart for nature and the animals that live on the course; animals such as several familes of ducks, geese, deer, fox, ground hogs, and some of the largest frogs that you will find anywhere. They are all our friends at Carman Creek. In order for them to survive and prosper we have to protect their habitat and minimize our environmental footprint. Our future plans of the addition of more renewable energy, more energy efficiency, and focus on organic growing practices will not only help our little friends but it also saves us money.

As we work hard at minimizing our environmental footprint there are many initiatives that we have implemented over the years. One major initiative is what we refer to as "100% Chemical FREE GOLF". This has been achieved over the years by focusing on minimizing the use of chemicals unless absolutely necessary to the point now, we do not use any chemicals and do not even have any onsite since 1999. By focusing in this direction we have achieved a balance of naturally healthy turf with a very important characteristic, the turf is NOT chemical dependent. This characteristic really came to light the last few summers where we've had our fair share of moisture from percipitation, and I do not mean from the river overflowing. Even with the moist conditions unfortunately creating an idea situation for fungas and bacteria growth, Carman Creek's greens were healthy and in excellent condition with no pesticide applications at all. So anyone who plays Carman Creek does not have to worry about pesticides rubbing off on their hands from a ball or tee, because there is no pesticides or chemicals of any kind used at Carman Creek.

There are many more environmentally friendly iniaitives we have undertaken over the years, such as, Pond Buffer zones, use of native grasses, energy efficient irrigation pumping, Fredericton's first commercial wind turbine, and many more.

2008 was an incredible year for Carman Creek. We won three Environmental awards.

  • Chamber of Comemrce 2008 Environmental Leadership Award.
  • Gold Medal in Fredericton's "Green Matters" Environmental Business Certification Program.
  • Mayor's June Environmental Award.

Taking care of the environment doesn't cost, it pays....
