Golf Club LLC filed the litigation on August 10 against American Golf Corp., which has operated and managed the club for nearly 20 years under a lease agreement. The suit alleges that American Golf Corp. failed to meet the standards laid out in the agreement, the World reported.
American Golf Corp. operates at least 85 private, resort and public golf courses throughout the U.S., the World reported.
Elby Beal, managing partner of Golf Club LLC, said the ownership group anticipates that it will assume operations of the club on January 1 upon the expiration of the lease. He added that a multimillion-dollar restoration and renovation project that is planned at the club in early 2017 will include the golf course, clubhouse, cottages and related facilities, the World reported.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to restore The Golf Club of Oklahoma to the stature it enjoyed when we acquired it as one of the finest private golf clubs in the country,” Beal said in a statement. “Our first commitment is to our members—to present a first-class product on the course and in the clubhouse. We’re confident the coming changes will deliver on that promise.”
Details of the renovation will be unveiled after the first of the year, Beal said. Designed by golf course architect Tom Fazio, The Golf Club of Oklahoma originally was developed by Tulsa businessman John Williams, the World reported.
