Broad Run Golfer's Club recently got the royal treatment from local golf publication, Tri-State Golfer Magazine. An excerpt of the story is below, but sure to read the story in its entirety HERE. It goes into some great historic details about the land that Broad Run currently occupies and is a detailed account of the improvements they are making for the upcoming golf season...
Boasting arguably the most visually stimulating layout in all of the tri-state area, Broad Run, which opened as Tattersall Golf Club in 2000, has always gripped first-timers with an abundance of jaw-dropping vistas, extreme (and equally ample) elevation changes, and 18 completely unique golf holes and kept them coming back to the daily-fee facility.
But multiple changes in both ownership and management throughout its first decade-plus led to inconsistency in course conditions and indifference from many local golfers who weren’t always willing to fork over the high-end green fees for a shell of the former beauty regardless of how impressive the setting was.
“Especially because it’s a mid- to high-end daily-fee product,“ said Broadbelt. “It has to have the conditioning that is commensurate with the fee. We put a lot of work into cleaning it up and restoring certain areas and we think what we‘re offering is a great value, especially when you look at the history of the club. When they first opened in 2000 I think they were going to charge $108 on the weekends. Last year we were at $75. The good thing for the golfer in this down economy is that they’re going to play great venues at reduced prices. It’s a great venue for an incredibly competitive price.”
Rest assured his year’s peak rates won’t stray far from $75 (cart fee included) and be sure to take advantage of discounted winter rates as low as $30 during the week and on the weekend.
The primary focus of Byler was to elevate the level of conditioning needed to allow the stellar 6,826-yard (Par 72) Rees Jones (Huntsville GC, LedgeRock GC, Lookaway GC) design to shine and the droves of golfers to return.
Byler began by bringing in Jeff Broadbelt to oversee the operation as the club’s general manager. Then came the addition of Head Golf Professional Peter Lovenguth. Lovenguth and Broadbelt have done this before, together spearheading the dramatic turnaround of Downingtown Country Club in the late 90s.
