Billy Casper Golf (BCG) has been selected to manage the storied Butler’s Golf Course in Elizabeth Township, Pa., 45 minutes southeast of Pittsburgh.
At Butler’s Golf Course—home to 36 holes, The John Butler House Bed and Breakfast, and The Rock Run Inn restaurant—BCG will oversee all aspects of operations, marketing and public relations, staffing and training, merchandising, clubhouse, food and beverage, financial management, golf instruction and special events.
To immediately strengthen golfers’ experiences and ensure a smooth transition, BCG has hand-picked Kevin McKay as General Manager and Tom Tokarski as Golf Course Superintendent. Both BCG veterans, McKay was most recently Director of Golf at High Bridge Hills Golf Club in High Bridge, NJ, and Tokarski was Superintendent at Compass Pointe Golf Courses in Pasadena, MD. Ryan Estel – formerly Chef at Waterfront Café in Hilton Head, SC – has been named the new Chef for The Rock Run Inn.
BCG will enroll Butler’s Golf Course in the Audubon International “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” program, ensuring high standards protecting the environment and preserving the natural heritage of golf. Results include efficiencies in maintenance, insurance premiums, energy, water, pesticides, fertilizer, equipment wear and labor.
