More than green.
We are evergreen!

In 2015, we achieved the Council for Responsible Sport (Council) Evergreen Certification, becoming the first PGA TOUR tournament and the largest event ever to achieve this level of recognition. In 2017, we were invited to the Council’s Inspire program, which requires data analysis and a mentoring component. The WMPO chose to mentor the Golf Environment Organization (GEO) by piloting their sustainable golf tournament standard at the 2017 tournament, providing feedback on credits and the documentation process. In 2017, the WMPO became the first GEO Certified© tournament.
