Environmentally-friendly Golf in Colorado

Does a golf course furnish wildlife habitat and other benefits, or is it an herbicide and pesticide-soaked grassy sponge?

If you golf, you can look for certified "green" courses to play.

Only two in Colorado make it into the Audubon Society's third-ranked "bronze" level as "certified sanctuaries," but a number of others are listed as "cooperative sanctuaries."

The US Air Force Academy golf course might be "green," but no one has updated its Web site listing for six years, as of today.
