November 2016 - Club and Resort Business

Golf’s New Public Face

Two new Southwestern courses, “The Max” in Laredo, Texas and Rockwind Community Links in Hobbs, N.M., are changing the image of what municipals “should” look like—and the roles they can play in the business.

Growing New Roots

It was encouraging to see how the city officials behind the ambitious new municipal golf course properties in Laredo, Texas and Hobbs, N.M., have found a way to see a bigger picture.

Joe Cool

Arnold Palmer single-handedly took golf out of country clubs and into the mainstream. Quite simply, he made golf cool.

Delivering the Goods

From humble hot dogs to lobster dinners to full, ready-to-eat holiday feasts, members and guests are hungry for ways to enjoy their favorite foods beyond traditional dining rooms. Club and resort chefs are responding with inventive ways of providing to-go meals and snacks for those who want to pick-up-and-play at the golf course or pool, or bring them home for the entire family to enjoy.

Rock Stars

With increased national exposure, prominent new hires, and a second golf course under construction, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is stepping up its efforts to put thePennsylvania property on the map as a premier golf destination.

Military Honors

The military membership at Pine Lake Country Club in Orchard Lake, Mich., offers current U.S. military members, reservists, and honorably discharged veterans club membership discounts.

Mutual Admiration

After achieving success at several top restaurants, Aleksiy Shalev wasn’t sure the club life was for him—but a few minutes visiting Omaha Country Club quickly changed his mind.

Tee-mendous Attraction

An attraction at Casey (Ill.) Country Club is bringing non-golfers to a spot just behind the clubhouse to view the world’s largest golf tee.

Timely Delivery

In addition to needing to complete its new pro shop in a tight, tournament-to-tournament timeframe, The Sea Pines Resort’s Harbour Town Golf Links sought a partner that could maximize the impact of customers’ shopping trips throughout the expanded space.
