Billy Casper Golf names Kelly Searight National Sales Manager

Kelly Searight

Billy Casper Golf, the owner-operator of more than 150 golf courses, country clubs and resorts in 28 states, has named Kelly Searight its National Sales Manager.

With over two decades of golf industry experience, Searight will directly oversee group outings, tournaments, banquets and other events at select BCG properties. She will also assist BCG's on-site and regional sales teams with lead generation, qualification and placement of functions sponsored by businesses, charities and groups of all sizes.

As part of the company's revenue culture, Searight assumes a key role in BCG's customer relationship management programs linked to its advanced marketing technology. She will work closely with Steve Simoneaux, BCG's National Director of Sales.

Prior to her new position, Searight was Director of Sales at Bear Creek Golf Club in Dallas, managed by BCG for a decade, where she produced more than $1 million annually in group business.

"Billy Casper Golf continues to commit significant resources to our industry-leading marketing and sales engine," said Searight. "I'm excited to contribute even more, including best practices and tools to our highly creative and results-driven professionals."

"Kelly's track record speaks for itself," said Kyle Ragsdale, Chief Marketing Officer of BCG. "Her promotion supports Billy Casper Golf's proactive and profitable track record for public and private golf clubs."

BCG's focus on events parallels a resurgence of Corporate America's activities at golf courses and country clubs. It also aligns with golf's $3.9 billion annual charitable impact with more than 143,000 events involving 12 million-plus participants raising an average of $26,300 per function, according to the World Golf Foundation.
