It’s easy to confuse these world-class golf courses for nature preserves. Take the pristine green of The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort for example, located off the coast of South Carolina and host of next week’s PGA Championship. This course offers views of the Atlantic Ocean and protected marshland from each hole, and is one of the most environmentally friendly greens in the country. But The Ocean Course isn’t the only “green” golf course. On Forbes.com, we’ve rounded up five courses across the country that are on the cutting edge of conservation.
