Billy Casper Golf beats out OB Sports for Arizona course five-year management contract

Thanks in part to a sales pitch that works wonders on financially strapped municipal officials – “If you’re an owner of a golf course, private club or resort, Billy Casper Golf will make you money” – Billy Casper Golf has landed a five-year contract to manage the unprofitable city-owned golf complex in Prescott, Arizona.

BCG will assume control of most golf-related activities at the 36-hole Antelope Hills Golf Course next month. The facility has reportedly lost between $234,500 and $323,450 in each of the past four fiscal years, but BCG, which will receive $84,000 a year for its services, has guaranteed the city annual payments of $1.3 million.

Prescott reviewed bids from seven other management companies, among them OB Sports and Landscapes Golf Group.
