Dear Members and Guests,
End of summer, back to school, back to work, back to cooler temps!
At ClubCorp clubs, our summer was filled with lots of family activities and it was a treat this year to see young and old(er) alike enjoying our pools and the many golf, tennis, and social events. We celebrated as a community when Jordan Spieth, who grew up playing golf at Brookhaven Country Club near Dallas, won his second major and later rose to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking. We watched more great golf and, as always, shared in the accolades for the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational held annually at the iconic Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.
Now, as we move into the fall, we have more to look forward to, including the fifth edition of the George W. Bush Institute Warrior Open, Sept. 29-30 at our Las Colinas Country Club near Dallas. In addition (and doesn't time fly?), on Sept. 25 we celebrate the ninth anniversary of the ClubCorp Charity Classic. As a reminder, since 2007, with your support ClubCorp has raised almost $15 million for numerous great charities across the country, including our own Employee Partners Care Foundation. Please join in at your club this year and give back to so many who serve you and your friends.
While not without some glitches, we continue to work hard to improve your home club and our unmatched network benefits. As always, we appreciate your feedback and especially the hard work of the Boards of Governors at our clubs that make sure our efforts stay aligned with you, our members.
Please drop me a note with your questions, concerns, or compliments - and enjoy the fall!
With a fond farewell,
President and CEO
