Sequoia Golf moves into Pacific Northwest


Sequoia Golf’s national expansion plans have reached the Pacific Northwest. The company has been hired to operate Mill Creek Country Club, a financially troubled facility in suburban Seattle, Washington.

“They showed a clear understanding of our situation and presented a realistic vision for how they could help the club deal with its issues and move forward,” the club’s treasurer said in a press release.

Mill Creek, owned by its members since 2007, has what it’s described as “a financial obligation we will not be able to deal with” — it involves $100,000 payments due to some of its members — and has discussed a sale with interested suitors. However, earlier this year it told the News of Mill Creek that it had restructured its debt and now has “at least five more years to build membership.”

Sequoia hasn’t announced its strategy for rebuilding the club’s membership, but the press release suggests that it’ll involve its PlayAway program, which will give Mill Creek’s members access to a network of 450 private clubs and resorts in North America.
