Champion Club Is Under New Management, Open House Is May 22

Thursday, May 16, 2019

The Champions Club is under new ownership, as investors from the community have purchased the club. 

There will be an open house on Wednesday, May 22, at 6 p.m. in the newly renovated clubhouse. Complimentary light snacks will be served and a cash bar will be available.

Newly-appointed staff will be at the open house and club owners will speak about the changes coming to the Champions Club. 

According to owner Bill Cronin, insuring property values remain high is the centerpiece within the Champions Club’s renovations. “Myself and my partners live here and are active members of the Champions Club, but we started feeling frustrated that the club simply wasn’t living up to its enormous potential," said Mr. Cronin. "The people of these communities have built and purchased homes they are proud of, and we want to ensure their home values don’t decline. That would not be in anyone’s best interest. We take our image statement of 'Renewed Pride, Refocused Vison, and Revitalized Community' seriously, and hope all the homeowners, as well as current and future club members, will be extremely pleased with our exciting renovations and improvements.”  

The Champions Club was built in 1999 and features rolling, tree-lined fairways and water hazards. The par-72 course includes a pro shop, swimming pool, tennis courts, bar and grill, driving range, and practice greens. Thus far, the clubhouse has undergone a total modification, while the swimming pool is seeing complete renovations and is set to open Memorial Day weekend.

Golfers are already enjoying new carts, tee markers, and satellite tracking. Greens at the Champions Club will be redone, and newly-appointed Director of Golf Derek Montecalvo says golfers will immediately notice the difference. “The new greens will be better suited to the weather conditions here,” said Mr. Montecalvo. “They’ll be more resistant to mutation with better heat tolerance, resulting in lower cutting heights in summer for faster speeds on the greens.”
