BrightView Golf Maintenance has been selected by Orlando’s West Orange Country Club (WOCC) to maintain its par 71 championship course. BrightView will be responsible for all aspects of course maintenance, including turf, irrigation, and tree care, with the maintenance of putting surfaces a priority.
The Lloyd Clifton-designed course in Winter Garden, Fla., is known for its “Tin Cup” tournament, a two-day Ryder Cup format pitting junior versus senior golfers. The course also has played host to mini tour events, including the Hooters Tour and Suncoast Ladies Series.
The Club was founded in 1967 by West Orange County citrus families looking to create a, “…a laid-back, easy going, old south type feel” for members. The course was rebuilt in 2006.
“We are honored to have been chosen to care for this historic course, one of the best known private golf facilities in Central Florida,” said Greg Pieschala, President of BrightView Golf Maintenance. “We are looking forward to helping West Orange continue to establish itself as a premier family recreational facility, providing the best golf experience in the region for members, visitors, and competitive golfers.”
BrightView is a leading golf course maintenance company in Florida, caring for 24 championship courses around the state.
“After extensive analysis on options available to us, we concluded BrightView Golf Maintenance gave us our best depth of resources while balancing quality against cost,” said Jeff Haire, WOCC partner and owner. “We are very pleased with our decision.”
