Sherwood Forest was far ahead of its time as a planned residential development which thoughtfully integrated residences in a natural forest setting. In 1962, Sherwood Forest was registered as a wildlife sanctuary with the Florida Audubon Society. From its earliest years, it has attracted naturalists, conservationists, artists and nature enthusiasts. Sherwood Forest’s 18-hole, par-3 golf course is a proud member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, created and administered by Audubon International. Following its guidelines, we observe best management practices in environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, resource management, water conservation & quality, and outreach and education, and will apply for full certification in 2021.
