Pope Golf of Sarasota has agreed to a five-year contract to manage Misty Creek Country Club.

"We are excited about the opportunities at Misty Creek.", says Keith Pope, President of the company that bears his name. "We have been working hard to grow the company, and the results of that hard work are starting to pay off." 

Within the last six months, Pope Golf has secured a lease of the Manatee County Golf Courses (Manatee County Golf and Buffalo Creek), and added management contracts at Myakka Pines Golf Club, and now Misty Creek Country Club. The company is currently in negotiations with several other municipalities and private clubs, and is looking to continue its recent growth both locally and regionally.

"We have developed a unique approach to the operations of our private clubs, as well as our daily fee golf courses." Pope continues. "We have been very successful developing and implementing membership programs at our private clubs, and as we continue to add more private clubs, we feel we can create synergies that will allow these clubs to grow their membership and return to a more exclusive status.

"We have put together a great team of professionals in the industry to support the company. They all have a true passion for the business, and we impart that passion to the Clubs we are fortunate enough to manage."

Misty Creek was previously managed by Billy Casper Golf.
