Landscapes Golf Management earns multi-year extensions to provide management solutions to four Midwest golf courses, country clubs

(LINCOLN, Neb.) – Landscapes Golf Management has been granted multi-year extensions to continue delivering management solutions to four Midwest golf courses and country clubs spanning South Dakota, Nebraska, Indiana and Iowa.

Under the company’s leadership, each operation has realized meaningfully improved financial performance supported by impressive satisfaction, retention and acquisition of members and guests.  In turn, the valuation of each asset has significantly increased.

Guided by talented on-site staff and corporate functional support, Landscapes Golf Management continues to excel at employee recruitment and training, property maintenance, marketing and sales, clubhouse operations, merchandising, food and beverage, IT and financial management.

“Contract extensions are the greatest compliment we can receive regarding the service we offer,” says Tom Everett, President of Landscapes Golf Management. “They are testament to the collaboration and alignment between our corporate team, on-site staff and clients.”    

The four properties are of public, private and community variety:

  • Sutton Bay (Agar, S.D.) – Perennially ranked No. 1 in the state by Golf Digest, GOLF Magazine and Golfweek, the championship, true inland links golf course was designed in 2003 “as one with the land” by internationally acclaimed architect Graham Marsh and constructed by Landscapes Unlimited Chairman Bill Kubly.  Golf enthusiasts find the 18-hole, 7,226-yard, par-72 layout immeasurably charming, rewarding, challenging, fair and pure in every sense of true golf tradition.   The exclusive, private club sits above the spectacular landforms of the Missouri breaks and majestically overlooks the massive expanse of Lake Oahe.  Hunting, fishing, 18 single rooms, six king suites, eight four-bedroom cottages and exquisite buffalo steak, walleye and pheasant round out the premium offerings.  Pierre Regional Airport is less than an hour away and two municipal airports are about 30 minutes from Sutton Bay accommodate private jets.
  • Hillcrest Country Club (Lincoln, Neb.) – Founded in 1929, the 18-hole, 6,820-yard, par-72 golf course with visually stunning established, tree-lined fairways hosted the likes of U.S. Open champion Walter Hagan as well as legends Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.  The acclaimed layout has withstood the test of time and is a product of expert designer William A. Smith who learned the agronomic business from his father, a groomer of the world’s most famous grass tennis courts at Wimbledon.  One of its most popular holes is the 600-yard, par-5 No. 4 built for John Daly types.  Steeped in tradition yet creating new traditions, empty nesters and young families relish diverse amenities, including aquatics, tennis, dining and other social activities.
  • Tippecanoe Lake Country Club (Leesburg, Ind.) – Almost a century young and equidistant from South Bend and Fort Wayne, the private club sits on a high ridge above the majestic Tippecanoe Lake. Popular among seasonal members who play golf while visiting their summer homes on the water, their journeys stretch nearly 6,000 yards and are full of strategic shot-making options following continuous updates to the layout.  Beginners and better players, from retirees, Boomers and even centennials, find the course to be as forgiving and challenging as they desire.  Every activity at the club follows the thesis of honoring tradition and embracing the future.
  • Dodge Riverside Golf Course (Council Bluffs, Iowa) The regional favorite characterized by subtly rolling terrain is nestled along the Missouri River, adjacent to Harrah’s Hotel and Casino and features views of the Omaha skyline.  The 18-hole, 6,400-yard, par-72, daily-fee layout is rife with fun holes and recognized as the area’s best-conditioned and most celebrated walking course. Dodge Riverside’s full-service clubhouse, anchored by a formal dining room accommodating 200 guests with outdoor deck seating, is popular for business meetings, weddings and parties of all sizes.
