Brown Golf Management buys two courses for $2.7m

Brown Golf Management purchased two Jacksonville, Fla.-area courses — Windsor Parke Golf Club and Champions Club at Julington Creek — from Pacific Life Insurance Co. for $2.7 million, The Florida Times-Union reported. Brown Golf Management will operate both clubs, bringing its portfolio of owned and managed facilities up to 23 courses in seven states. The deal closed on April 30, 2015 according to the management company’s website.

The insurance company originally purchased the two courses in the 1990s for $13 million. The Bluffton, S.C.-based management company purchased Windsor Parke for $1.5 million and Champions Club for $1.2 million, according to the Times-Union.

Windsor Parke, a semi-private club, features an Arthur Hills-designed 18-hole Championship course. Champions Club features 18-holes of championship golf.

Both courses are under new management. Brent Miller is the new general manager at Champions Club and Jimmy Powell is the new general manager for Windsor Parke. Miller told the Times-Union that no other immediate major changes to the public courses are planned at this time.

President John A. Brown Jr. told Golf Inc. that he is aiming for the company to own half its portfolio and manage the other half. Though it manages private and public courses, the majority of its facilities are semi-private. Before founding his own management company in 2011, Brown worked for Troon Golf as a turnaround specialist. He runs the company with his two sons John M. and Todd.
