Black’s announces “green golf course communities
Golf Course News Magazine May 25, 2006

Black’s Farmwood, Inc. of San Rafael, Calif., has taken another giant leap forward in its commitment to the environment. Black’s Farmwood recently supplied two more prestigious golf course communities in 2006. In April, Black’s delivered Wide Plank, Reclaimed Old Growth Douglas fir flooring for the main restaurant and club house at The Gozzer Creek Golf & Lake Club in Coeur D Alene, Idaho. This month, Black’s just closed a deal with The Brasada Ranch Golf Course in Redmond, Ore., to supply their “Farmhouse” with Antique Tobacco Barn Oak flooring (made from 150 year old oak barn siding). Black’s Farmwood, Inc. has supplied homes in Lahontan in North Lake Tahoe and The Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, Calif.

Black’s Farmwood, Inc. is Marin County’s original reclaimed wood business, which one of the foundations of the eco-design, or ‘green design’ movement. Reclaimed vintage timbers and flooring are not only more structurally sound, and environmentally responsible, but historically dramatic, with tighter grain, fewer defects, and have a lovely ‘weathered’ appearance.

Black’s reclaimed wood has been used around the Bay Area in homes and wineries, in restaurants in San Francisco, Wolfgang Puck’s bistro in Hollywood, and the Aladdin Casino in Las Vegas. Some new commercial projects include Ridge Vineyards in Cupertino, Tres Agaves Restaurant in San Francisco, and Wipe Out in Fisherman’s Wharf.
