Sydney R. Marovitz Golf CourseSydney R. Marovitz Golf Course, managed by Billy Casper Golf, has been ranked the 18th best nine-hole course in the United States by Golf World in the magazine's just-released Top 25 ranking.

As one of 4,430 nine-hole courses in the United States, per the National Golf Foundation, Sydney R. Marovitz shares elite status with other renowned nine-hole layouts lauded by Golf World. They include Dunes Club (New Buffalo, MI), Northwood Golf Course (Monte Rio, CA), Pocantico Hills Golf Course (Tarrytown, NY) and Gleneagles Golf Course at McLaren Park (San Francisco).

"Sydney R. Marovitz is honored to be named to this exclusive list," said Travis Kane, regional manager for Chicago Park District Golf. "With stunning views of the Chicago skyline, a lakefront setting, challenging layout and pristine course conditions, Billy Casper Golf delivers a golf course that makes Chicagoans proud."

With tight greens, abundant bunkers and formidable length, the 3,240-yard Sydney R. Marovitz is among the most challenging of the six Chicago Parks District (CPD) courses managed by BCG.

In January 2009, BCG was selected by CPD, the City of Chicago's parks and recreation arm, to manage its golf facilities. In this turnkey role, BCG directs all aspects of golf course and property maintenance, staffing and training, clubhouse operations, golf instruction, marketing and public relations, special events and financial management for the CPD.

BCG has committed $5.5 million over 15 years to an aggressive property-enhancement program at the six courses, three driving ranges and learning centers, and two miniature golf courses. This includes work on course tees, fairways and greens; detailed attention to turf maintenance; and upgrades to buildings and facades.
