Updated: December 1, 2021

The 2021 American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) Environmental Excellence Awards honorees have been named, with Anchorage (Alaska) Golf Course, site of the 2022 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur, being among those recognized.

Projects from three golf facilities were cited for their work with ASGCA members in addressing unique environmental challenges. 

With Forrest Richardson, ASGCA and Jeff Danner, ASGCA working in tandem in preparing Anchorage Golf Course to host the 2022 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship, their efforts included a non-traditional construction plan resulting in less carbon emissions. Using local equipment, available supplies and regional labor, the Municipality of Anchorage, in cooperation with their operating lessee, completed a bunker renovation program, turf reduction and drainage plan designed to conform to the Anchorage Climate Action Plan.
