Mosaic takes ownership position in two Atlanta courses

Mosaic Club & Resorts has taken over management of two Atlanta-area courses, and two of the company’s principals are part-owners.

Newly formed Gonna Fly Now acquired Fox Creek and Legacy Golf Clubs, which are located side-by-side in Metro Atlanta’s Cobb County and the city of Smyrna. The courses are two miles from the new Atlanta Braves SunTrust Park stadium.

Jim Kegley and Steve Bowen, purchased the courses, with Whitney Crouse and Steve Willy, both of Mosaic Clubs and Resorts, as members of the ownership group. Mosaic Clubs and Resorts is an Atlanta-based golf management company whose partners and principals have experience building, owning and operating more than 200 clubs worldwide.

Kegley and Bowen plan to apply their 20 years of technology and real estate experience to upgrading the facilities. They founded U.S. Micro, an IT asset management company, in 1995 and sold it in 2014. The new owners will make at least $1.5 million of improvements to the golf courses and clubhouses, focusing on course improvements and technology upgrades to enhance the experience of novice and experienced golfers alike.

Legacy Golf Links is a Par-58 course with 14 par-3 holes and four par-4 holes.  Fox Creek is an executive-style Par-62 course. Both courses offer large 50-tee grass driving ranges that also have practice putting and chipping areas, PGA golf instruction, and junior programs.

“We are pleased to be the new stewards of these very busy courses and driving ranges,” said Whitney Crouse, Mosaic’s Chairman, who was previously an owner of Fox Creek in the 1990s. “We welcome the existing course employees to the Mosaic family and hope to build on their ideas for improvements and hard work.”

There are 700,000 people and only two public courses within 10 miles of the two courses.

“With the addition of the new Braves stadium and the continued quality growth of Cobb County, we are very optimistic about their potential to please many more golfers for years to come,” Crouse said.

Bowen said golf course ownership has been an objective for he and Kegley for some time.

“We believe these courses can serve as an excellent platform for new and innovative plays around the game of golf and are excited to own such quality regional assets,” Kegley said.
