Oldfield Club has maintained a designation as being recognized by Audubon International for both our Golf Course and our Community. Many reference this as being “Audubon Certified” but as it pertains to our Community, there are several awards and distinctions that can be achieved. We are very pleased to announce that Oldfield Club has received the prestigious distinction as Audubon’s “Neighborhood for Nature” award winner. This is a distinction on top of our Green Neighborhood designation, and we are the only community to receive this award for 2015.
A special Thank You and Congratulations to Jill Kombrink, Oldfield Naturalist, for spearheading the efforts with our department managers, Outfitters Committee and support from residents, to assemble all the work and materials needed to achieve this award. With Jill’s leadership and commitment to this effort, we will not only maintain our Neighborhood for Nature designation each year, but strive for Audubon’s highest award of “Sustainable Community”. This is a distinction that only two other private communities across the country have attained, neither of which are in the Southeast. For obvious reasons we want to be the first private community in the state and in this region to achieve this distinction and award.
Awards are significant in providing the recognition a person or organization deserves. However, the reward in all of this is seeing a community come together to support the many initiatives that help make our efforts with Audubon International truly meaningful. This allows us to maintain our community standards and the feeling of a place carved into nature, it’s part of the essence of what makes Oldfield feel so unique.
