AMERICAN GOLF TO MANAGE RIVER RIDGE GOLF COURSE
Leading Golf Course Management Company Wins Bid to Operate Two Oxnard Courses
LOS ANGELES – Leading golf course management company, American Golf Corporation (AGC) has been selected to manage the City of Oxnard’s River Ridge Golf Club.
American Golf has taken over operations of both River Ridge’s Vineyard and Victoria Lake Golf Courses. In addition to maintaining the 36-hole public course, American Golf will manage River Ridge’s banquet facilities and its driving range, the largest in Ventura County. It will also be responsible for the maintenance of the Oxnard golf course’s adjacent practice fields that are currently used by the Dallas Cowboys each year for training camp.
“The City of Oxnard is excited to work with American Golf Corporation at River Ridge Vineyard and Victoria Lakes Golf Courses. We believe the company’s track record will elevate the appeal of playing golf in Oxnard and attract new customers in the city and across the state,” said Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn.
Solidifying American Golf’s position as the leading operator of golf courses and golf clubs in California, with the addition of the Oxnard courses, the company now operates over 50 properties in the state and facilitates more than 3.2 million rounds of golf each year in the state. It is widely recognized for its portfolio-wide membership program – The Player’s Club, a subscription-based affinity-membership program available at all American Golf operated public courses.
The Oxnard City Council reported that the selection committee “was particularly persuaded by American Golf’s corporate resources and strong marketing plan” for River Ridge and that the innovative Player’s Club membership will be an incredibly effective program for increasing utilization at the golf courses as well as creating a stable and consistent income source.
“We’re honored to have been selected by the City of Oxnard to oversee the operations of these two incredible courses,” said Jim Hinckley, CEO of American Golf. “We look forward to working with the city to grow these courses and drive more players to experience all the River Ridge Golf Club has to offer.”
