The Nicklaus Design Group has successfully balanced the strict requirements of building a first-class golf course within the delicate ecosystem of the surrounding mangroves, marshlands and tropical rainforest. The golf course is home to blue crabs, iguanas, crocodiles, raccoons and a multitude of species of birds as well as other wildlife which call this habitat home.Because of its strong commitment to an environmental program, in March 2006 Cozumel Country Club became the first golf course in Mexico to earn the designation of Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary from Audubon International. To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas including: Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management."
Perhaps the most common goal for golf course designers, and certainly Nicklaus Design, is to create a golf course that is enjoyable for all skill levels of player, but from the back tees, provides the good test of golf even the best players could envision. Most of all, you want the experience to be a memorable one, and something that will bring the golfer back time and time again" Steve Nicklaus
