ABOUT CENTURY GOLF PARTNERS
ABOUT ARNOLD PALMER GOLF MANAGEMENT
OUR HISTORY……. HOW IT ALL BEGAN
In 2005, several of the partners came together to realize a long-desired dream and created Century Golf Partners; a golf investment and management company. In the same year, the company also acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to the Arnold Palmer Golf Management brand and accordingly, Century Golf Partners operates many of its clubs under the Arnold Palmer Golf Management name. The initial focus of the company was to assemble a world-class team of highly experienced hospitality and golf industry professionals to acquire and operate country clubs, daily fee golf courses and golf resorts throughout the U.S. With the belief that clubs and golf courses must have a comprehensive strategy and disciplined business approach to be sustainable, the leadership team set out to help clubs and golf courses succeed in communities throughout the country. The plan was executed to perfection, and after acquiring two significant portfolios and several individual clubs, Century Golf Partners became one of the fastest growing companies in club and golf management company history.
The Company is led by partners Jim Hinckley, Doug Howe, Ken Story, Greg Adair and our non-executive chair, Peter Ueberroth along with highly experienced Principals and leaders. Several members of the leadership team have worked together for over 25 years and are some of the most qualified professionals in our industry. Collectively, they have operated over 500 golf courses worldwide and hosted some of the most premier events in golf such as the Women’s U.S. Open, the Honda Classic, the Disney Classic, and many more.
Today, the Company continues to seek opportunities to expand its portfolio of clubs and has created alliances and affiliations to provide unique and extensive benefits to our Members and Guests through club networks and loyalty club programs. Our Team Members include some of the most innovative and service-committed people in the club and golf business. With a solid foundation, outstanding infrastructure and incredible potential, Century Golf Partners is poised to continue our rapid growth and achieve our vision to be the most sought after business partner in golf. Achieving this vision will allow us to continue to attract and retain the best people, to reinvest and reinvent our clubs when needed, and help improve the communities we live and work in. We will be able to better support our charitable partners which include The First Tee, Folds of Honor and Arnold Palmer’s Hospital for Children.
