Lt. Gov. Carroll marks completion of Broken Sound Club expansion,

 BOCA RATON — Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll marked this week’s opening of the expanded Broken Sound Club in Boca Raton by joining local officials and club leadership for its opening.

 In her remarks, the lieutenant governor recognized the club as a model which demonstrates that green initiatives and environmental stewardship can go hand in hand with successful business operations.

 The Club’s $10.5 million expansion provided a significant boost to the local economy over the past two years, with more than 100 tradesmen and professionals employed on the project.

 Broken Sound Club’s Board of Governors and management have made environmental enhancement and corporate responsibility central to their business model since launching “green” initiatives three years ago, said John Crean, CCM, general manager, an advocate for resource efficiency and environmental stewardship within the Club Managers Association of America.

 Broken Sound Club, which employs more than 350 people, is only the second golf facility in the U.S. to be GEO Certified™ — the sustainability assurance of the international non-profit Golf Environment Organization (GEO).

 The club also recently launched the operation of an environmental composter/digester to reduce green and food waste and produce refined compost – an initiative expected to decrease the amount of water and fertilizer needed for golf course maintenance.

 A “‘Platinum Club of America,” Broken Sound spans some 1,000 acres and has 1,600 homes. The community provides a multi-faceted social and recreational hub with two golf courses and is host to the PGA Champions Tour Allianz Championship.
