With 700 acres at our fingertips, we are proud to use building materials from our own property. Some of the natural resources found on site that were used during construction include plant material, rock and soil. For instance, the rock fascia on the buildings, patio and pool area is tri-colored basalt. It was mined from Hole 13 of the golf course and used throughout the clubhouse, outbuildings, pathways and patio areas. We’ve also preserved rock piles and snags to provide shelter along the golf course for native animals.
Buildings such as the Golf Academy, the snack shack and the comfort stations feature “living roofs” made up of native vegetation. Various monuments around the resort use rocks found on the property, many of which weigh more than 5 tons each!
Additionally, a majority of the plants that must be moved for development are replanted throughout the resort. Because Tetherow is committed to preserving its natural landscape, much of the vast native vegetation was either left untouched or replanted throughout the property during resort construction.
