TPC Deere Run has won back-to-back GCSAA/Golf Digest Environmental Leaders in Golf awards and is certified by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program. Common to the area, but unusual on a golf course, Bald Eagles have nested at TPC Deere Run the last two years, which hatched two chicks last year and two or three more this year.
