Billy Casper Golf, Buffalo Brand Invigoration Group Contribute to 24 Courses on Golfweek’s 2015 ‘Best Courses You Can Play’ State-by-State Rankings
(VIENNA, VA) – Billy Casper Golf (BCG) and its Buffalo Brand Invigoration Group (Buffalo) division have contributed to 24 courses earning top rankings on Golfweek magazine’s recently-released 2015 “Best Courses You Can Play” state-by-state list.
Owner and operator of more than 150 golf courses, country clubs and resorts nationwide, BCG-managed Wintonbury Hills Golf Course (Bloomfield, CT) and Lake Presidential Golf Club (Upper Marlboro, MD) rank among the top three in their respective states. Perennial and picturesque favorites Mauna Kea, Kauai Lagoons and Royal Ka’anapali golf clubs are among Hawaii’s top 15.
Buffalo manages public relations and marketing for dozens of golf properties directly and others through tourism agencies and golf cooperatives. Highly-ranked courses include The Champion at PGA National Resort & Spa (Palm Beach Gardens, FL), Harbour Town Golf Links at The Sea Pines Resort (Hilton Head Island, SC), Sweetgrass Golf Club (Harris, MI), Old American Golf Club (The Colony, TX), Pound Ridge Golf Club (Pound Ridge, NY) and Salish Cliffs Golf Club (Shelton, WA).
Several other courses partnering with BCG and Buffalo rank among the top 10 on their state’s list.
“We are thrilled to play a significant role in earning Golfweek honors,” says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. “Our talented teams across America are the real superstars, consistently providing first-class course conditions and personable service time and again.”
The state-by-state rankings – tallied by hundreds of Golfweek raters nationwide – takes into account the overall strength of routing, feature shaping, natural settings, greens, the variety and remarkable nature of holes, conditioning and maintenance, landscape management and other criteria.
“Golfweek raters take great pride in their jobs,” says Rich Katz, Managing Director of Buffalo. “Course owners eager to boost business should explore partnering with Billy Casper Golf and leverage Buffalo’s solid media relationships to attract and retain golfers in their hyper-competitive markets.”
