OB Sports announces new partnership agreement

Phil Green and C.A. Roberts are now equal equity partners with Orrin Vincent in OB Sports thanks to a restructuring of their previous agreement, the company announced in late January.

“Phil and C.A. have been minority partners of mine for 10 years, and, together, we have achieved great success — even in these turbulent times,” said Vincent, Chairman and Founder of the Scottsdale-based company. “This new structure will help us tackle future goals and opportunities, not just for us but for the entire OB Sports team.”

Vincent founded OB Sports in 1972. He took on investment money, acquired courses, but was forced to divest of his then 13-course portfolio in 2000, when the investor wanted to cash out. He then founded OB Sports Management with Green and Roberts as minority partners, and retained management of five of his courses — including Angel Park Golf Club, and The Legacy Golf Club in Las Vegas. Since then, the company has grown to 37 courses under management contract, making it the 12th largest management company in the world. Phil Green is Chief Operating Officer and C.A. Roberts is President.

“We are proud of our slow but steady growth,” Green said. “While we are certainly in the business of managing golf courses, our primary goal is to help make our respective golf course owners successful. In today’s ever-changing market, we find ourselves working with banks and country club boards in addition to the developers and stand-alone owners.”
