Danville, Indiana-based Green Golf Partners
has been selected to begin managing several area golf courses.
GGP will run the Johnson Park and Washington Park courses in Racine; Shoop Park Golf Course in Wind Point; Hawthorne Hills Golf Course in Saukville; and Mee-Kwon Park Golf Course in Mequon.
Jeremy Dahl will serve as superintendent for all three Racine courses. He previously was assistant supervisor at Strawberry Creek in Kenosha.
GGP plans to undertake a complete remodel at Johnson Park with funds from the City of Racine, and more minimal updates at Washington Park and Shoop Park.
At Mee-kwon and Hawthorne Hills, GGP will handle the leasing of the food and beverage operations.
The company now operates five Wisconsin golf courses and manages food and beverage for two others in the state. It has a total of 22 courses under management, mainly in the Midwest. Green Golf helps to increase usage at public courses and up memberships at private golf clubs.
"We are delighted to extend our relationships in Wisconsin, which has such vital communities and excellent golf properties," said Matt McIntee, chief executive officer and partner at GGP. "With GGP's golf management experience, we will bring more focus, accountability and a personal touch to each property to optimize their potential. With our professional assistance, we will help each of these courses through the complexities of modern course management to ensure not only viability, but sustainability and profit."
