President’s Letter – Summer 2018
Dear Members and Guests,
Summer! A time to celebrate with family and friends, and our clubs provide the perfect setting for just that. With a range of wonderful amenities — golf, resort-style pools, tennis, and fitness facilities — and a host of family activities, our country clubs offer the ideal “staycation” destinations. This summer, we are gearing even more programs and activities toward our youngest members with a multitude of junior golf camps and kids programming.
I’m extremely excited and proud of our commitment to our junior programs and how we continue to enhance the experience for up-and-comers. We offer ClubCorp Junior Golf Camps across our network of clubs — and 70 of our clubs now offer Junior.Golf, a technology platform that provides programming and connects the teacher, student, and parents with player progress. Our clubs also support the PGA Jr. League, which introduces kids to the game in a fun, social atmosphere as they compete in teams in a two-person scramble format. Braelinn Golf Club at the Clubs of Peachtree City in Georgia has more than 700 kids participating in Junior.Golf and boasts the largest PGA Jr. League in the country.
In company news, we are finalizing large reinvention capital projects of multimillion-dollar investments at 11 more clubs in our portfolio — including a complete renovation of the Metropolitan, located on the 66th and 67th floors of Willis Tower in Chicago, that is slated to be completed by late fall — and progressing on numerous technology enhancements including a new mobile platform for better member engagement. We also are pleased to announce the opening of the Collective, a new club concept in Seattle, and to welcome Engineers Country Club on Long Island, N.Y., as a new managed club in our portfolio. These additions continue to reinforce our commitment to offering you value in membership both at your home club and with our network of clubs. We truly look forward to creating more and more ways to enhance your membership benefits.
I hope you enjoy the warm weather and your summer months and, as always, if you have any suggestions or comments, please contact me at my email address below.
