The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality welcomes Radrick Farms Golf Course to the ranks of the Clean Corporate Citizen (C3) program. This makes Radrick Farms the first golf course operation to obtain designation and the 209th Michigan facility overall to receive this honor.

C3 is a voluntary program that recognizes environmental stewardship at Michigan facilities. Candidates demonstrate facility-specific environmental management systems, active pollution prevention initiatives and a consistent record of compliance with state and federal environmental requirements.

"This is a great honor for Radrick Farms Golf Course and the Golf Course industry," said Radrick Farms Golf Course Superintendent Dan Mausolf. "I am proud of the positive relationships that have been made with the DEQ and its partners. We take a great amount of pride in our environmental efforts and this certification is another great tool in the promotion of those efforts."

"I’m proud to be a part of this program. Anytime we can create a better environment for our children, the better off we will be in the long run," said Radrick Farms Golf Course Greenskeeper Clint Kutzley.

Radrick Farms Golf Course is also a member of the Michigan Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program, Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, Groundwater Guardian Green Site, Community Partners for Clean Streams and the Michigan Business Pollution Prevention Partnership. Radrick Farms continues to be a positive influence within their community and industry to improve the sustainability of both.
