November 24, 2015 – Green Golf Partners (GGP), one of the nation’s leading golf course management and development companies, has signed an agreement to manage Crane Creek Golf Course, a scenic ’destination’ course in central Illinois.
Crane Creek, which is nestled in the woods of Mason County outside Kilbourne, Illinois, provides a beautiful, serene, par-72 layout that ranges from a friendly 5,259 yards from the red tees to the 7,390 formidable yards off its black, championship tees. The course features mature trees, ponds and sand trap hazards, bent-grass fairways and fast, smooth greens.
Crane Creek is located in west central Illinois, a leisurely, 45-minute drive from cities such as Bloomington, Springfield and Peoria. Its new clubhouse features a pro shop, bar and snack area as well as an outdoor patio view of the 18th green.
“We are delighted to add the picturesque Crane Creek Golf Course to our roster of first-rate private and public golf courses in several states throughout the Midwest and Southeast parts of the country,” said Matt McIntee, CEO of Green Golf Partners. “We’re planning a number of exciting upgrades to the course in time for play in spring 2016, when Crane Creek will be in full bloom.”
GGP has built a reputation as a knowledgeable golf company with expertise across a wide range of golf course management, including course maintenance, marketing skills and business acumen. Staff personnel at GGP golf courses and clubs keep customer satisfaction as their primary focus, whether in the upkeep of the course or in the preparation of extracurricular activities for the social members.
Membership packages for 2016 are now being sold at Crane Creek Golf Course as well as at its web site (www.golfcranecreek.com) and Facebook page. Package rates range from $150 for unlimited use of range balls to $875 for a Gold Pass that is good every day of the week for unlimited golf and cart and includes all outings and Crane Creek sponsored events. Rates are good until December 1, 2015.
Crane Creek also is offering its ’VIP Punch Card’ deal for $250, a pre-pay special which includes 10 rounds of 18 holes each plus cart, good for any day of the week. The VIP Punch Card may be purchased for $230 until December 1, 2015.
