Environment


Reducing our corporate impact ensures relations between natural and built environments are protected from adverse circumstances. York Major is a leader in reducing the impact development has on the environment and adds value to the community. We employ the best practices and seek new opportunities to find innovative solutions to environmental challenges. For example Eagles Nest has performed extensive wetland rehabilitation and enhancement of the headwaters of the East Don River Tributary. This tributary originates on our golf course; which has contributed to the long term environmental sustainability of the Don River ecosystem by providing consistent and quality base flows for all flora and fauna, locally and downstream. Eagles Nest Golf Course has incorporated numerous underground infiltration galleries that collect both irrigation and storm water run – off, and by design allows the excess water to infiltrate into the soils to re-charge and enhance the existing ground water table. Eagles Nest Golf Course is using turf grass species that utilize significant reductions in inputs such as, irrigation, pesticides and fertilizers; all collectively contributing to less environmental impact.

Proud of our environmental efforts which extend beyond regulatory compliance.
