Billy Casper Golf Selected To Manage Palmbrook Country Club (Sun City, AZ)
(VIENNA, VA) - Billy Casper Golf (BCG) - owner and operator of more than 130 golf courses, country clubs and resorts - has been selected to manage Palmbrook Country Club in Sun City, AZ, just northwest of Phoenix.
Marking BCG's initial foray in Arizona, the company will provide turnkey management of Palmbrook's member programs, operations, golf course and property maintenance, sales, marketing and public relations, staffing and training, merchandising, restaurant and banquet activities, special events and financial management.
Long known as one of the most enjoyable golf experiences in Sun City, Palmbrook will benefit from BCG's creative membership options, high-quality customer service and superior course conditioning to enhance the already-strong membership roster.
"Billy Casper Golf will introduce new and exciting programming to enhance our club's value to members and guests," says Bob Obringer, President of Palmbrook Country Club. "The company's excellent track-record boosting performances of similar clubs resonated with our Board."
"Palmbrook's terrific golf-course layout and sense of community contribute to excellent experiences there," says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. "All who touch Palmbrook will realize the Billy Casper Golf difference in the short and long term."
BCG will enact its proprietary "BCGreen" initiative at Palmbrook to conserve, protect and enhance the environment, enrolling in the Audubon International "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" program. This designation increases efficiencies in maintenance, energy, water, pesticides, fertilizer, equipment wear and labor.
Located in Sun City, AZ, the 18-hole, 6,529-yard, par 72 golf course at Palmbrook Country Club opened in 1971. The front nine is protected by well-placed bunkers and mature pine and eucalyptus trees. The back nine features a creek running adjacent to every hole as well as three lakes.
Palmbrook boasts one of most popular and complete practice facilities in the valley with 25 hitting areas, large chipping and putting greens, and a green-side practice bunker.
The sprawling clubhouse contains the Vista Grill and Lounge that specializes in both casual and elegant cuisine. Banquet space makes Palmbrook a premier location for corporate outings, tournaments, weddings and other social engagements.
