Our members love nature and are committed to our environment, so much so that we established Collier’s Reserve as a refuge for Florida’s wildlife and subtropical foliage. In 1994, Collier’s Reserve Country Club made history by becoming the first golfing community in the world to achieve designation as a Certified Audubon International Signature Cooperative Sanctuary. In 2014, Collier’s Reserve achieved another milestone by becoming the first Signature Sanctuary to attain certification for twenty years.
Established in 1993, the Signature Program was designed to chart a new path to the siting, design, construction, and management of golf communities with guidelines for both the landscape and structural facilities. Sites that achieve designation as a Certified Audubon Signature Sanctuary must demonstrate a commitment to enhance and protect the environment with a focus on the economic, environmental, and aesthetic benefits to the surrounding community.
Certified members such as Collier’s Reserve excel in their management of wildlife habitats and in their judicious use of available water.
