Five companies vying for Sanford, N.C. courses


A quintet of management firms is vying to operate the city of Sanford, North Carolina’s Donald Ross-designed golf course.

The city has received responses to a request for information from three firms that currently manage golf properties in the state – Billy Casper Golf, Pope Golf and Warrior Asset Management – and from a pair of companies based in Georgia, International Golf Services and Trademark Golf Management. The submissions are being reviewed, according to the Sanford Herald, but no meetings with the private-sector groups have yet been scheduled.

The city’s course opened in 1934. Parts of it have been redesigned by Rick Robbins.
