Newly formed Gonna Fly Now, LLC recently acquired the Smyrna, Ga., properties, with plans to make at least $1.5 million of improvements to the facilities within the first year, focusing primarily on course improvements and technology upgrades.
Fox Creek Golf Club and Legacy Golf Links, both in Smyrna, Ga., are under new ownership. Newly formed Gonna Fly Now, LLC recently acquired the clubs, and will make at least $1.5 million of improvements to the golf courses and clubhouses in the first year, focusing particularly on course improvements and technology upgrades.
Jim Kegley and Steve Bowen have purchased the courses, joined by Whitney Crouse and Steve Willy, of Mosaic Clubs and Resorts.
Legacy Golf Links is a par-58 course with 14 par-3 holes and four par-4 holes. Fox Creek is an executive-style par-62 course. Both courses offer large 50-tee grass driving ranges that also have practice putting and chipping areas, PGA golf instruction, and junior programs.
“We are pleased to be the new stewards of these very busy courses and driving ranges,” said Crouse, Mosaic’s Chairman, who was previously an owner of Fox Creek in the 1990s. “We welcome the existing course employees to the Mosaic family and hope to build on their ideas for improvements and hard work.
“With more than 700,000 people and only two public courses within 10 miles of the courses, this is one of the few areas of the country where the demand for golf still exceeds supply,” said Crouse. “With the addition of the new Braves stadium and the continued quality growth of Cobb County, we are very optimistic about their potential to please many more golfers for years to come.”
“We believe these courses can serve as an excellent platform for new and innovative plays around the game of golf and are excited to own such quality regional assets,” said Kegley.
