  • the Ridge Golf Club

Billy Casper Golf (BCG) has entered an agreement to manage golf operations for The Ridge Golf Club and Events Center in Auburn, California.

The Ridge Golf Club and Events Center’s ownership group has selected BCG as their strategic partner for golf operations, agronomics, sales and marketing. Operations will be locally managed by a professional golf and agronomic team, while also supported by regional and national teams to provide expert guidance and direction.

“Billy Casper Golf and The Ridge Golf Club & Events Center have created a joint commitment to elevating the golf course programing, events and guest experience,” said Jerry Rogers, PGA, director of Golf. “Given BCG’s advanced industry expertise, I am confident in their ability to help guide us forward.”

Nestled in the golden foothills of Northern California and just a short drive from Sacramento, The Ridge’s layout is designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., who is known for creating golf holes that take full advantage of their sites, while preserving the natural beauty of the land.

Oak-studded knolls, rolling grassy hills and bold rock outcroppings contribute to the views at the club. The stone and glass clubhouse, tucked away in a corner of the foothills, sits atop a small ridge that overlooks a sea of towering pine trees, rolling-hills and sparkling ponds. The Ridge has become a favorite destination for elegant weddings and special events.

“By providing pristine conditions, outstanding service and programs for golfers and event planners, The Ridge is a must visit venue in the greater Sacramento region,” said Tom Prince, western regional director of marketing for Billy Casper Golf.

Billy Casper Golf is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019. The Ridge Golf Club & Events Center is now the eighth BCG-managed course in The Golden State and 150 golf courses, country clubs and resorts in 29 states.
