  1. 2019 First Quarter Winner

Q1 Williamsburg National Golf Club

Williamsburg National Golf Club

The Williamsburg National Golf Club was awarded the 2019 1st Quarter Clean Business Award by the James City Clean County Commission for their environmental stewardship efforts. The golf facility located at 3700 Centerville Road in Williamsburg recycles approximately 250 pounds of aluminum, 450 pounds of glass, 500 pounds of paper, 400 pounds of plastic and 400 pounds of cardboard every month. According to Grant Smith, Operations Manager, the landscape team incorporates native plants, mulching and flower beds into their landscape techniques to allow for proper water absorption and minimization of storm runoff. Other innovative enhancements include clean energy solutions such as LED lighting throughout the facility and the use of recycled products where possible. Best management practices are used in buffer areas around streams. Spot spraying and slow release chemicals are implemented to ensure that landscaping applications are not harmful to the environment.
