Integrity takes over operations at Venetian Bay

Integrity Golf Company is now overseeing golf operations at Venetian Bay Golf Club in New Smyrna Beach, Fla.

The long-term lease agreement, effective June 1, strengthens Integrity Golf’s presence in Central Florida. It now has 22 Orlando-area golf facilities under some form of ownership or management and 30 courses in five states overall.

The semi-private club features a Clifton, Ezell and Clifton-designed par-72 golf course that measures 7,072-yards. It first opened in 2006 and was acquired by Canadian-owned Geosam Capital US LLC in late 2012.

The course has water views and undulating fairways and greens. It is the centerpiece of the master-planned Venetian Bay development that spans 1,425 acres across 10 communities. In addition to the 18-hole championship golf course, Venetian Bay has a town center, beach/swim club and tiki bar.

"Integrity Golf Company is a great addition to the Venetian Bay community,” said Martin Pham, vice president of operations for Geosam Capital, in a news release. "One reason we selected Integrity Golf is their vast experience partnering with large master-planned residential golf course developments accustomed to high-quality standards and their commitment to delivering world-class golf course experiences.

Integrity Golf Company President/CEO Gene Garrote is thrilled to be adding this upscale Volusia County property to the company’s collection of Central Florida courses.

“We look forward to partnering with Geosam and the rest of the Venetian Bay community,” Integrity Golf President and CEO Gene Garrote said in a news release. “This is a beautiful course and we’re excited about the future viability of Venetian Bay.”

Based in Orlando, Fla., Integrity Golf is one of Golf Inc. Magazine’s “Top 25 Management Companies in the World.” Venetian Bay brings the Integrity Golf portfolio to 30 golf facilities under management and/or ownership in five states including Florida, Tennessee, New York, South Carolina and North Carolina.
