(VIENNA, VA) – Billy Casper Golf (BCG) – owner and operator of more than 110 golf courses in 25 states – has been selected to manage the full-service, private Misty Creek Country Club in Sarasota, FL, marking BCG’s eighth property in Florida and 16th in the southeast.
BCG will turnkey all aspects of Misty Creek’s golf course and property maintenance, staffing and training, clubhouse operations, food and beverage, merchandising, golf instruction, marketing and public relations, member services, special events and financial management.
“Billy Casper Golf has a proven track record of increasing member satisfaction and growing membership rosters,” says Meg Kaminski, President of the Misty Creek Board of Directors. “This foundation and Billy Casper Golf’s steady leadership will further support Misty Creek’s performance.”
“Misty Creek is a wonderful addition to the Billy Casper Golf family,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. “The course conditions, natural beauty and sense of serenity are impressive, and a re-vamped membership program is poised to attract new members.”
The par-72, 6,895-yard championship course with four sets of tees cornerstones Misty Creek’s Ted McAnlis layout. Player-friendly and well-designed, Misty Creek provides a nice mix of tree-lined fairways and wide-open spaces with mounding, extensive bunkering and generous, receptive greens. An extensive practice facility, including a driving range, full-scale short game area and large putting green, provide pre- and post-round warm ups.
Part of a residential community with homes visible on only a few holes and set on 350 acres of preserve with lakes and hammock forests, Misty Creek is an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary. With native trees, protected wetlands and abundant wildlife, Misty Creek is an appealing oasis of golf and nature. The setting boasts deer, bobcat, wild boar, alligators and more than seventy different species of birds.
Misty Creek offers a wide range of member amenities, including tennis courts, lounge, dining room, banquet rooms, clubhouse, fully-stocked pro shop and locker rooms. The club’s charm and beautiful setting make it a natural choice for outings, weddings and other social engagements.
