Brown Golf Management provides a unique blend of proven financial success and extensive experience in the golf club industry. Our company’s primary goal is to purchase struggling golf course facilities and make them profitable. In addition to our company’s acquisition business, Brown Golf Management also offers third party management and consulting. We believe so strongly in our management systems that every BGM management deal is an incentive based management contract with a small monthly retainer. Our incentive or back end performance fee is based on successes in achieving a club’s financial goals. Included in our monthly retainer is our proven management service and full service accounting function. This turn-key platform provides for a broad based plan for achieving profitability through Brown Golf Management’s core values of operations efficiency, revenue development, and hospitality excellence.
