Saadiyat Beach Golf Club has been rated above par by an environmental organisation for encouraging wildlife to the area. The course on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi was awarded certification from US based Audubon International after showing evidence that it was carrying out activities to protect and encourage natural wildlife and habitation.
The Club's director of agronomy, Marcus Hartup, said: "Over the past two years we have seen an increase in migrating birds as well as a noted increase in gazelle activity.” Audubon International is not-for-profit organisation which was formed in 1987 to provide education on environmental issues. – 7Days
