Abstract:States that the Old Collier Golf Club "has won the top award in its field for environmental stewardship from the Council for Sustainable Florida." Explains the methods Tom Fazio, designer of the course, and Collier Enterprises used for building the course, including the use of seashore paspalum "on the entire course, including greens, tees, fairways and rough." Mentions that "it is the first golf course in the world to irrigate with brackish and saline water and the first to landscape with indigenous plants that are 100 percent salt tolerant."
