GOLF COURSE OPERATIONS
Marywood Golf Club is a once-prestigious private club which turned
public in the 1990’s. Directionless for a decade, the
course was presented s a low and high end public experience depending
on the owner. I was hired in 2004 to revitalize the business
by William Schott. Our business plan has made Marywood Golf
Club into a recreational experience sought after by local and distant
golf enthusiasts. The course is continuing to see an annual
increase in golfers in a period of industry contraction.
Times are changing in the golf industry. A number of our clients are adapting to the changing times by providing more inclusive recreational features to their courses. Country Club of Lansing is adding a shorter set of tees, providing an enjoyable round for more members. Country Club of Lansing is taking the lead in Michigan on the industry’s "play it forward" movement.

Railside Golf Club built a new short game area. Cascade Hills Country Club is presently in the planning stages of a renovated practice facility which includes a lesson area, heated tees and a short game area. Beach Grove Golf & Country Club, Tecumseh, Ontario has a new practice range with a 9-hole short course in the future plans.
As our lives change and challenges within our industry continue on, many courses are looking for future golfers and providing existing players a new experience with prudent course improvements.
