Environmental Policy

River Downs Golf Course is the only non-resort golf course in the State of Maryland to be a member of the Maryland Green Registry with the Maryland Department of the Environment. River Downs is committed to reducing its impact on the environment.  We will strive to improve our environmental performance over time, and to initiate projects and activities that will further reduce our impact on the environment.

Our commitment to the environment extends to our guests, customers, vendors, employees, and to the community in which we operate. We are committed to:

  • Comply with all applicable environmental regulations
  • Prevent pollution whenever possible
  • Protect the water ways of the adjacent North Branch of the Patapsco River
  • Train all staff on environmental policies and empower them to contribute and comply
  • Communicate our environmental policy and compliance with such to our guests, customers, vendors, employees, and community
  • For every tree that must be removed, replant two of a similar species on the property
  • Continually improve over time by striving to measure our environmental impacts and by setting goals to reduce these impacts over time
