An environmentally friendly golf course?

There's been a lot of press this week about how Tiger Woods is going to be designing his first American golf course in Western North Carolina.

Today's Asheville Citizen-Times reports that the Cliffs, which will be doing the development, does its business in a pretty green friendly manner:

You won’t often hear folks who have to enforce erosion control ordinances singing the praises of a developer. But County Planner Jim Coman can’t say enough good things about The Cliffs developer Jim Anthony’s operation.

“They have been a poster child for erosion control and every other regulation we have,” Coman says. “It’s so rare to work with somebody who does it right the first time. They really do a first-rate job. He’s the best there is.”

Golf courses do not tend to be viewed as a good thing for the environment, so it's nice to see the Cliffs doing things the right way with this venture. Hopefully it'll all work out well.
