Billy Casper Golf to Manage Cypress Creek Country Club in Boynton Beach
Cypress Creek Country Club, 20 minutes south of West Palm Beach, Fla., has selected Billy Casper Golf (BCG) to manage the semiprivate club, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
BCG is currently overseeing course and property maintenance, and beginning in October, will direct all facets of the Cypress Creek operation, including staffing and training, clubhouse activities, merchandising, golf instruction, marketing and public relations, special events and financial management.
"Billy Casper Golf's success with upscale properties is extraordinary," says Bill Marcacci, owner of True Shot, LLC and Cypress Creek. "The company's attention to detail, personal service, turf management practices, purchasing power and marketing strength will benefit members, guests and the business operation itself."
"Cypress Creek Country Club has all the makings of a special golf and social club," says Peter Hill, chairman and CEO of BCG. "Working with the Boynton Beach community, Billy Casper Golf is excited to enhance the club environment and solidify it among the area's best."
Cypress Creek's par-72, 6,531-yard course features wide fairways and tropical landscapes filled with wildlife. Gentle mounding, fast and true greens, bunkers and five sets of tees adapt to golfers of all skill levels.
Opened in 1964, the course was designed by the late Robert von Hagge. Among his worldwide credits are El Conquistador in Puerto Rico, host of several Champions Tour events; Les Bordes near Paris, ranked the No. 1 course in Europe; Royal Mougins, site of the French Open; White Witch in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the No. 1 Caribbean course; along with Trump National Doral Miami, TPC Presancia in Sarasota, Woodlands Golf Club near Houston and many others.
Cypress Creek features a practice area with a driving range, sand trap, chipping and putting green. Under the guidance of PGA and LPGA instructors, the facility's Don Law Golf Academy is popular for beginners and better players. Also on-site is a 8,000-square-foot clubhouse with a pro shop and the Tru Shots Bar & Grille, where members, guests and groups enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner indoors and outdoors.
Open to the public, daily fee rates for Cypress Creek range from $25 to $65; BCG plans to launch new rewards and loyalty cards for local residents.
