Landscapes Golf Group, a division of Landscapes Unlimited, is one of the most respected and one of the nation’s largest golf management companies. Over the past 25 years, Landscapes Golf Group has owned or operated more than 50 properties across 24 states, as well as internationally in China. Additionally, Landscapes Golf Group has provided short-term consulting and tailored club solutions services to owners and operators of golf courses around the world.
Going forward, the company will market and promote its management services under the widely recognized name of Landscapes Unlimited. “Our club solutions and management services business has been growing steadily in the past several years under the Landscapes Golf Group brand. However, we felt we were leaving something on the table by not taking full advantage of the name and reputation for quality that we have built at Landscapes Unlimited over the past 38 years,” remarks Bill Kubly, Landscapes Unlimited’s founder and CEO.
Landscapes Unlimited will continue to hold its golf course real estate portfolio in Landscapes Golf Group, LLC. “We really felt the need to separate the two business activities because they both require a full-time focus and different operational strategies,” Kubly added.
Michael Jenkins, who has led Landscapes Golf Group for the past 15 years, will remain in charge of the golf course real estate assets, as well as participate in the strategic direction and business development of the entire company. “Not many people realize it but Mike was Landscape’s CFO for 10 years before he took on the company’s strategic mission to grow the golf investment and management services business. Mike is one of the few people in our organization who understands the entire breadth of the services Landscapes provides. He has been involved directly or indirectly in our golf and irrigation business for 25 years and with the club operations business for over 15 years. Mike is a leader in the golf course industry, known by many golf course designers, material and equipment suppliers, golf course owners and general managers. He personifies the essence of Landscapes Unlimited and has and will continue to support and represent all facets of our business,” says Kubly.
Tom Everett will lead the management services company into the future as the new president of Landscapes Management Company. Tom started with Landscapes 20 years ago as a club general manager and has risen through the company to his most recent position of Vice President of Golf Operations, overseeing the operations of 25 clubs in the United States and China. “Tom was the logical choice because he knows our management operations better than anyone. I am proud of him and hope that I had a little to do with preparing him to take that next step,” says Jenkins.
“Landscapes Unlimited has built a reputation over the past 38 years as being ‘the best’ in the industry. Bill has challenged me and our team to continue developing our management services business and to grow these services so that we are world class in providing not only golf course construction and irrigation services, but management services as well,” Everett says.
As part of the reorganization of Landscapes Unlimited’s golf management business, Bryce Juedes has been promoted to Landscapes Management Company’s Vice President, focusing on developing and executing the strategic plan for this business and leading its accounting and finance team. We are also happy to report that Mark Mattingly will be returning to Landscapes Unlimited as Landscapes Management Company’s Vice President of Business Development after a brief stint at Kemper Sports. Mark will spearhead all new business development initiatives and activities for Landscapes Management Company.
