Billy Casper Golf to operate Raintree Golf and Event Center

Billy Casper Golf will operate Raintree Golf and Event Center in Green, Ohio, located 20 minutes from both Akron and Canton.

For the daily-fee course, BCG will oversee clubhouse operations, golf course maintenance, marketing and sales, staffing and training, merchandising, golf instruction and financial management. 

“Billy Casper Golf’s marketing expertise will grow Raintree’s market presence and attract new golfers,” says Dawn Bowman, events director of Raintree. “Raintree looks forward to providing exceptional golf, as well as becoming recognized as the premier private events, meetings and weddings destination in our community.”

The facility opened in 1992 as an 18-hole public golf course with a 400-seat capacity event center. Designed by Brian Huntley, it includes four sets of tees, and a full practice area with driving range, chipping and putting greens and practice bunkers.

“Implementing BCG’s programming and customer services will be essential to our growth,” says Eric Snodgrass, general manager of Raintree. “We are thrilled to work with BCG and their esteemed reputation for leading course and property maintenance.”

Patty Gaston will become the new director of golf operations and help oversee outing and league promotions at Raintree. Richard Heisler will lead the turf care and maintenance team, with the mission of improving overall playing conditions and executing improvements to the facilities at Raintree.
