Billy Casper Golf adds Lake Region Yacht & Country Club

Lake Region Yacht & Country Club, now a receding memory in suburban Orlando, Florida, has hired Billy Casper Golf to orchestrate its future, Florida Golf reported. The club, which was going broke and is now owned by a group of founding members, is closed this summer for an overhaul of its 18-hole golf course. When it reopens, in late 2013, it’ll assume a new identity: Country Club of Winter Haven. BCG has been directed to make Winter Haven “a best-in-class” club, which will eventually entail building a new clubhouse and selling equity memberships for $50,000.

“The Country Club of Winter Haven will once again be one of the finest private clubs in central Florida,” promises Peter Hill, the CEO of BCG. The contract gives BCG 13 properties in Florida.
