Billy Casper Golf Selected to Manage Raintree Golf and Event Center
Billy Casper Golf (BCG) – the highly respected and innovative manager of golf courses, country clubs and resorts – has been selected to operate Raintree Golf and Event Center in Green, Ohio, located 20 minutes from both Akron and Canton.
For the daily-fee course, BCG will facilitate clubhouse operations, golf course maintenance, marketing and sales, staffing and training, merchandising, golf instruction and financial management. The facility will serve as a community asset delivering great golf experiences, as well as high quality non-golf events through its 400-seat capacity event center. Under BCG’s leadership, both golf and non-golf programming will be central to Raintree’s mission moving forward.
“Billy Casper Golf’s marketing expertise will grow Raintree’s market presence and attract new golfers,” says Dawn Bowman, events director of Raintree. “Raintree looks forward to providing exceptional golf, as well as becoming recognized as the premier private events, meetings and weddings destination in our community.”
Opened in 1992, Raintree is an 18-hole public golf course with full-service event and banquet facilities. Designed by Brian Huntley, it includes four sets of tees for different skill levels. The course also features a full practice area complete with driving range, chipping and putting greens and practice bunkers.
“Implementing BCG’s programming and customer services will be essential to our growth,” says Eric Snodgrass, general manager of Raintree. “We are thrilled to work with BCG and their esteemed reputation for leading course and property maintenance.”
Complimenting Bowman and Snodgrass, Patty Gaston will become the new director of golf operations and help oversee outing and league promotions at Raintree. If interested in organizing an outing or league, please contact Patty here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Richard Heisler will also lead the turf care and maintenance team, with the mission of improving overall playing conditions and executing improvements to the facilities at Raintree.
In 2019, Billy Casper Golf will be celebrating their 30th anniversary and success in building and refining the strongest operating platform in golf. Other BCG-managed courses in Ohio include Briardale Greens (Euclid) and the Cincinnati Recreation Commission courses (Avon Fields, California, Glenview, Neumann, Reeves and Woodland).
