Our Size is our Strength

Public & Municipal Courses

We elevate your municipal and public courses through a shared vision of success.

We offer a boutique, personalized service from single-course properties to expansive multi-experience operations. We have the exceptional talent and operational efficiencies of a large company with the attentive client and customer service of a small one.

Our history with public golf facilities began in 1978 with our management of Kemper Lakes Golf Course in Illinois, the first public course to host the PGA Championship.

With a mission to bring the private, member experience to public golfers, we established Kemper Lakes as a premium public golf facility in the U.S. and worked with the PGA of America to host the 1989 PGA Championship. Today we manage a coast-to-coast roster of some of the most prestigious and award-winning daily-fee golf courses, like Chambers Bay in Pierce County
