City of Crawfordsville Hires Billy Casper Golf to Professionally Manage Municipal Golf Course

Billy Casper Golf (BCG) – the highly respected and innovative management partner for golf courses, country clubs and resorts – has been selected to manage Crawfordsville Municipal Golf Course. The Crawfordsville Board of Public Works and Safety, as well as the city’s Park and Recreation Board, approved a five-year contract for BCG to oversee the 18-hole course set on 132 acres.

Under the new contract, BCG will evolve course and property maintenance, staffing and training, clubhouse activities, golf instruction, merchandising, marketing and public relations, special events and financial management.  Operations will be locally-managed by a professional golf and agronomic team, and supported by a regional team and national team that provide expert guidance and direction in all facets of the business. Together, these teams plan and implement the best practices in golf course management, agronomic care, and marketing.

“We were impressed by the proven best practices and personalized approach that Billy Casper Golf brings to our course and to the entire golf industry,” said Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton. “I’m confident in their ability to lead our course toward a bright and fruitful future.” 

BCG began management of the course on Jan. 16.

“This course is an undeniable asset to the Crawfordsville community,” said BCG Regional Director of Operations, Nick Bednar. “We look forward to guiding it to its full potential.”

Crawfordsville Municipal Golf Course – located less than an hour from Indianapolis – is an 18-hole, 6,610-yard, par-71 course, designed by Gary Kern. The public course also offers a recently renovated clubhouse, driving range and practice green. Other BCG-managed courses in Indiana include Purgatory Golf Club and Centennial Park Golf Course.
