BCG selected to manage Kentucky's Kenyon County Golf Courses

Fox Run course will be discontinued to focus on improving the facility’s remaining 36 holes.

Billy Casper Golf (BCG) has been selected to manage Kenton County Golf Courses in Independence, Ky.

BCG will facilitate clubhouse operations, golf course maintenance, marketing and sales, staffing and training, merchandising, golf instruction and financial management for Kenton County Golf Courses, including The Pioneer and The Willows courses.

The Fox Run course will be discontinued to focus on improving the facility’s remaining 36 holes, which have proven to be most popular with local golfers. The daily-fee courses will be supported by BCG’s regional and national teams to provide guidance in all facets of the business.

“I’m confident Billy Casper Golf’s management and marketing expertise is what the Kenton County Golf Courses need at this time. They are the best in the industry,” said Kenton County Judge Executive Kris Knochelmann.  “We look forward to our partnership which will enhance the overall experience for residents and guests alike and realize our goal of Kenton County Golf Courses’ full potential.”

He added, “The decision to close Fox Run was difficult, but the advice from industry experts was clear and consistent. Focusing on the Pioneer and Willows courses with BCG’s guidance is the best route to success.”

BCG will take a thorough approach to revitalizing the golf courses. Key areas include improving turf conditions, continued re-investment into facility infrastructure, installing their market leading ACE the Guest Experience training platform and helping build a premier junior golf program for the next generation.

“We are honored to be a part of Kenton County’s vision for a bright future among their golf community,” says Nick Bednar, vice president of operations for Billy Casper Golf. “We could not be more excited to implement our services and create a first-class environment for new and avid golfers.”

Golfers can also expect frequent special events from BCG throughout 2020, such as “craft beer scrambles”, couples & family events and holiday-themed outings. The facility will also host World’s Largest Golf Outing in August – in benefit of military veterans and their families.

BCG manages more than 160 golf courses in 26 states and celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2019.
