In this episode of Club + Resort Talks, Editor Rob Thomas speaks with Tom Everett, President of Landscapes Golf Management. Landscapes Golf Management has been in the news a lot lately, with new projects in both Traphill, N.C. (Contentment Golf Club) and Sioux Falls, N.D. (Mapleton Golf Club).
Everett also penned a popular column for Club + Resort Business—How Do You Cultivate Culture That Produces High Performers?—in September 2023.
Senior Editor Phil Keren joined the conversation to discuss the latest news from across the club and resort industry. Topics included T36 at Baytown (Texas)—a double-loop track that makes the most out of limited acreage. The innovation is similar to the amazing work being done by Agustin Pizá and Pizá Golf.
Phil and Rob also talked about work at Mesa (Ariz.) Country Club being done with climate change in mind. The project includes modernizing its irrigation system to help save an estimated 21 million gallons of water a year – or more than 10 percent of its current water use. The club is also aiming to eliminate 20 to 35 acres of the course’s 125 acres of irrigated grass.
