The Club at Las Campanas is on the forefront of water conservation efforts in the golfing world. A major program of turf reduction was implemented in 2011 reducing the amount of irrigated turf. The two Jack Nicklaus Signature 18 hole golf courses now cover 60 acres per course, whereas the average desert 18 hole golf course covers 90 acres. Details of the turf reduction effort and other water conservation efforts can be seen on the Water Conservation page.
In addition to the water conservation program, The Club is the only New Mexico Golf Course that is a member of The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP). The ACSP is an environmental education and certification program that helps golf courses protect the environment, preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf, and gain recognition for their efforts. Through collaborative efforts begun in 1991 with the United States Golf Association, membership in the ACSP has steadily grown to include more than 2,300 golf courses in the United States and three dozen countries worldwide.
