Buoyed by its success operating multi-course portfolios in and around major metropolitan cities, Billy Casper Golf (BCG) has been selected by the City of Philadelphia to manage five golf assets.
Under the long-term agreement, BCG will direct all activities at Cobb’s Creek Golf Club (Olde and Karakung courses), FDR Golf Club, John F. Byrne Golf Course and City Line Sports Center. The company operated the courses in 2008 under an interim contract.
BCG also manages multiple golf course portfolios for other major cities and counties, including Chicago (Ill.), Cincinnati (Ohio), Knoxville (Tenn.), Tulsa (Okla.), Cook County (Ill.), Westchester County (N.Y.) and Anne Arundel County (Md.).
For Philadelphia’s courses–which are part of the city’s Fairmount Park system–BCG will conduct golf course maintenance, staffing and training, clubhouse operations, golf instruction, marketing and public relations, special events and financial management.
“Solidifying a long-term partnership with Billy Casper Golf is very exciting,” says Mark Focht, Executive Director of Fairmount Park. “Golfers will experience even healthier course conditions and the City is primed for impressive fiscal returns from Casper’s sound management.”
