Celebration Golf Management, LLC will operate Eagle Creek Golf Club in East Orlando on a long-term lease agreement. The Celebration, Fla.-based Management Company owns and operates five additional golf courses in Central Florida.
Gene Garrote, president and principal of Celebration Golf Management, said the 18-hole championship golf course at Eagle Creek ranks as one of the best in the Central Florida area.
Designed by Ron Garl and Howard Swan, Eagle Creek was developed by Emerson International in Altamonte Springs.
“We are very excited to add Eagle Creek to our portfolio of exceptional Florida golf facilities,” Garrote said.
“Emerson International has developed one of the region’s finest courses, and Emerson’s dedication to quality is readily evident at Eagle Creek.’
Eric Emerson, vice president and managing partner of Emerson International, said Celebration Golf Management is the only management company he considered for the course.
“Celebration Golf Management is an outstanding organization that is dedicated to producing the ultimate experience for every golfer who walks onto the course,” Emerson said. “We are impressed with their management style and comfortable that the crown jewel of the Eagle Creek golf community is in capable hands.”
Celebration Golf Management also announced recently that it has started construction of a $500,000 teaching and custom club fitting facility at Celebration Golf Club in Celebration.
Kenny Nairn, executive vice president of golf for CGM and golf director at Celebration Golf Club, said the center would be featuring PING n-Flight fitting software, launch monitors and the latest in interchangeable fitting equipment. Nairn was part of the n-Flight software pilot program that has developed into an incredible consumer experience and comprehensive player tool, he said.
The 2,100 square foot facility is scheduled to open at Celebration Golf Club this summer.
