Seven bidders for management of Prescott, Ariz. course


Seven golf management companies appear to have a serious interest in operating the city of Prescott, Arizona’s golf courses.

Antelope Hills Golf Course has been losing money for much of the past decade, according to the Prescott Daily Courier, but the 36-hole facility (it features courses designed by Lawrence Hughes and Gary Panks) has nonetheless attracted the attention of a group that includes Billy Casper Golf, KemperSports Management, OB Sports and Touchstone Golf. The newspaper says that the complex has been forced to borrow more than $4 million from the city’s general fund.

The city, which will continue to maintain the complex, is offering a 10-year contract. It expects to have an operator in place in February 2014.
