Rock Creek Golf Course sold to new owners

GolfCoPartners, LLC bought the property from Honours/Troon on Aug. 15

Two brothers, Patrick and Scott Schneider, are buying golf courses in Alabama’s Wiregrass Region. Their most recent purchase was the Rock Creek Golf Course in Fairhope.

The Schneider brothers — who operate GolfCoPartners — have garnered community support for the purchase. Al Beck, president of Rock Creek’s property owners’ association, said that real estate agents can assure clients that the golf course is not going anywhere. 

“This transaction means that Rock Creek Golf is here to stay,” he said in a letter to the Baldwin Realtors Association. “Now, as you select and show residential properties to your customers, you can be confident in knowing that Rock Creek will remain one of the premier, high-value and desirable family communities in Baldwin County.”

“GolfCoPartners plans to improve the golf, dining, and social experience at Rock Creek,” Beck wrote. “Already, within two days of this purchase, Rock Creek now has a new fleet of golf carts."

The Scheinder brothers outlined all intentions in their letter to members after closing on the public club. They shared their plans for improving the golf course and clubhouse, as well as membership goals and new programming the club will offer. 

“Our philosophy with Rock Creek is simple and transparent. Our intent is to operate as a golf course and social gathering center that serves the local community and surrounding area,” GolfCoPartners wrote. “The degree to which the local market financially supports the business will drive our ability to provide more value and preserve/enhance property values in the community. Ultimately, our mutual success depends upon each other.  We have a proven model that works.”

GolfCoPartners also own The Golf Club at North Hampton in Fernandina Beach, Fla.
