HONOURS GOLF SELECTED TO MANAGE PIQUA COUNTRY CLUB

Birmingham, Ala. (March 30, 2015) – Honours Golf, the premier golf management company in the Southeastern United States, has been selected to provide club management and agronomic services for Piqua Country Club, a private club located 25 miles north of Dayton, in Piqua, Ohio.

“We selected to partner with Honours Golf because of the company’s expertise and solid reputation in the club management industry,” said Benny Scott, Piqua Country Club Board Member. “Honours will be instrumental in helping us reinvent the club and elevate the overall member experience. Our golf course has always been in great shape and we know it will only get better with their agronomy team in place as the backbone to our maintenance program.”

Piqua Country Club was originally established in 1896, just eight years after the first golf course opened in the United States. It features a core 18-hole regulation golf course which meanders throughout the rolling terrain of the northern Miami Valley. Tree-lined bentgrass fairways, small undulating greens, and large mature oak trees are just a few characteristics of this classic, player-friendly layout designed by renowned golf course architect, Donald Ross and Jack Kidwell.   

In addition to golf, the club features two dining options and an impressive banquet facility. The Kiltie Bar & Grill provides light fare in a casual setting with indoor and outdoor seating; while the Pinehurst Room offers a more formal dining experience with panoramic views of the golf course. An expansive banquet facility offers ample event space, multiple indoor and outdoor venues, hardwood dance floor and flexibility for groups of all sizes. The club also has an outdoor swimming facility with an adult pool and a separate children’s swim area. 

“We are pleased to be given the opportunity to manage Piqua Country Club and expand our network of managed properties to the Midwest,” said Bob Barrett, chief executive officer of Honours Golf. “Piqua is a remarkable facility with a great deal of potential.  We are confident that our management and agronomic practices will revitalize and build momentum for the club as well as contribute to the club’s overall success.”

Piqua Country Club is a private non-equity club.  Members have full access to the club amenities, programs and array of social and golf events.  As an Honours affiliate club, Piqua members now have reciprocal privileges at Honours Golf and Troon® managed resort and daily fee clubs throughout the world.  Future plans to the club include adding more amenities and upgrading the facilities.  The club is currently accepting applications for membership and will open May 1, 2015 for the season.
