Erie Shores Gone Green

Lake Metroparks encourages the conservation and wise use of natural resources and supports recycling.

Below are just a few of the ways Erie Shores Golf Course has gone green:
  • installed recycling bins for aluminum cans, paper and plastic 
  • printed all golf course collateral on recycled paper
  • used recyclable paper cups in food service operation 
  • recovered golf balls from course ponds to be reused on the driving range
  • created Clubs for Kids program where pre-owned adult clubs are cut down to kid size for use on the course
  • planted Chinese amurs in golf course ponds to help maintain algae and eliminate the use of chemicals
  • installed houses for bats and purple martins to help populate the area with insect-eating mammals to minimize the use of insecticides
  • created no-mow/natural areas to lessen environmental impact and lower fuel costs
