Dear Members and Guests,
Thank you, thank you, thank you. The final numbers are in, and thanks to the incredible support of you - our Members and friends in all communities we serve - the 2014 ClubCorp Charity Classic set a record with more than $2.5 million raised. As many of you know, the Classic originated in 2007 as a way to celebrate ClubCorp's 50th anniversary and as a very tangible way for us to give back to others. We have now raised well over $14 million to benefit so many great causes, including our own Employee Partners Care Foundation. We look forward to setting another record this year and, once again, appreciate your support.
With this new issue of Private Clubs, we have three more clubs to add to the ClubCorp family: Oro Valley Country Club near Tucson, Ariz.; and Ravinia Green Country Club and Rolling Green Country Club, both in the Chicago area. We welcome our new Members and hope you will enjoy visiting all of your new sister clubs throughout the United States, and in Mexico and China.
With golf season kicking off for most of the country, we are excited to add the Champions Tour's Insperity Invitational to the prestigious list of professional tournaments held at ClubCorp clubs. The Insperity will take place May 1-3 on the terrific Tournament Course at the Woodlands Country Club near Houston. On Sept. 9-13, our popular Acura ClubCorp Champions Classic returns to the fabled Pinehurst resort in North Carolina, where the team from Oak Tree Country Club won last year. We anticipate another sold-out tournament and lots of new memories made.
With a fond farewell,
President and CEO
