ClubCorp Launches New ClubLife Management Division

The management firm’s new unit will provide comprehensive management services for private clubs, destination resorts and premier daily-fee golf courses, and will be headed by Doug Hellman, a 30-year industry veteran, and Seth Churl, a former executive with Sequoia Golf and Redwood Six.

ClubCorp, the Dallas, Texas-based management firm, announced that it is expanding its portfolio to include a new business division, ClubLife Management, that will operate under the ClubCorp umbrella as an initiative that provides comprehensive management services for private clubs, destination resorts and premier daily-fee golf courses.

ClubLife Management has appointed golf industry veteran Doug Hellman as its Senior Vice President and Seth Churi as Senior Vice President, Operations. Hellman, most recently the Senior Vice President of Business Development for KemperSports Management, brings a total of more than 30 years of experience in business development and management services, team building, thought leadership and client relations to his leadership role at ClubLife Management. He has also worked for Schreiner Golf and Jacobsen Golf Course Design.

Seth Churi brings extensive club management and operations experience as a former executive with Sequoia Golf, and, most recently, co-founder and executive of Redwood Six, a full-service private club management company that was acquired by ClubCorp in 2018.
