November 24, 2015 – Green Golf Partners (GGP), one of the nation’s leading golf course management and development companies, has partnered with Florida-based Rekreation Marketing to expand marketing opportunities for GGP’s Belleview Biltmore Golf Club in Belleair, Florida.
The historic Belleview Biltmore golf course was designed in 1925 by famed golf course architect Donald Ross and opened as the Pelican Golf Club. GGP recently unveiled the newly refurbished course, enhancing Ross’ original, 6,614-yards, par-71 layout with more than $350,000 in improvements that include renovation of all 59 course bunkers with new drainage and sand, along with new sod and new tee boxes on holes #6, #8 and #12. The Belleview Biltmore’s greens are now comprised of Tiff Eagle Bermuda grass mowed to run smooth and true.
“Our goal is to further elevate Belleview Biltmore Golf Club’s already revered status as one of the finest courses in Tampa and all of Florida,” said Zack Vervaeke, GGP General Manager of Belleview Biltmore. “Rekreation Marketing understands the sophisticated Florida sporting market and will bring additional value to GGP’s efforts to add additional luster to this great golfing gem for members, guests and visitors alike.”
Other improvements at Belleview Biltmore Golf Club include a new restaurant theme-concept and menu at the 1501 Bar and Grill and a renovated golf shop with BBGC logo apparel and accessories as well as such noted golf product lines as Under Armour, Greg Norman, Footjoy, Bermuda Sands and Peter Millar.
Belleview Biltmore expects to utilize Rekreation Marketing’s lifestyle marketing expertise and knowledge of the vast Florida sports and recreation industry to further highlight the finest golfing experience in the greater Tampa Bay area.
“We admire Green Golf Partners for taking a leading role in delivering best-in-class facilities,” said Andrea Barone, Director of Strategic Marketing and Partnership Programs for Rekreation Markeing. “Their continued dedication and commitment to stronger consumer relations will underscore Belleview Biltmore’s reputation as one of the finest golf clubs in the entire Southeast.” Andrea added, “Through a sophisticated marketing strategy that includes relevant marketing platforms, we intend on helping the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club make a significant impact on the Florida golf market.”
