Our People

Our People having fun at the Regional Meetings
Simply put: we go the extra mile for a smile on our guests faces

Every day, our world-class teams of driven professionals collaborate with more than 6,000 energetic employees to produce powerful results for our clients.

BCG’s foundation starts with our people; we pride ourselves in finding, training and developing skills that translate into immediate success. With decades of experience, our teams constantly push the envelope, creating and implementing programs that capture the attention and respect of the golf world. It’s been said “Golf is a good walk spoiled,” well, we strive to make sure that phrase never fits at any of our courses. No other sport has an arena quite like golf; our people work hard to ensure memorable and enjoyable experiences at all of our managed courses across America.

Simply put: we go the extra mile for the customer’s smile.

Whether based at our National Support Office in Northern Virginia, or at a dozen Regional Support Offices spanning coast to coast, we are committed to one thing – generating meaningful results.

Kindly see below our renowned Management Team, led by Peter Hill, CEO and Chairman of BCG, ranked the No. 6 most powerful person in golf by Golf Inc. Magazine (the 10th consecutive year he’s finished in the top 10 … not too shabby).

CELEBRATING OUR PEOPLE
