We understand every facet of the golf business, and have the Executive Team members in place to work for you. With Foresight Golf, the Executive team works for your interests. Our team will be at your property from the start of our partnership, and we all work personally with the on-site managers daily. We evaluate what is happening on the ground throughout the year – not managing from a distance. With our executive team's broad and exceptional experience base, we’re able to evaluate and direct significant improvements at each new property.
Whether your property is part of a housing development or a stand-alone municipal golf course, we at Foresight consistently create innovative strategies and solutions to meet the challenges that any property faces. Most management companies have the least amount of expertise in the area of most value: the golf course itself. What makes Foresight Golf Management different is our understanding of the business, both agronomics and operations. We structure partnerships and management contracts based upon our core beliefs, our client's interests and the bottom line. We succeed because we’re competitive by nature and are relentless at achieving our clients' goals.
Foresight Golf, LLC was founded in 1998 by Dan Pedrotti, Jr. and Ed Miller with the vision to build, own and operate golf courses in which the quality of the golf experience we provide greatly exceeds the expectations of the recreational dollars invested by our customers! We wanted to build and operate courses that are good for the game and good for the business of golf. Foresight Golf has been involved in the construction, renovation, ownership and operation of ten golf courses in South Texas and one in Hannastown, PA, since our beginning in 1998. In 2008, as a result of creating a great organization and management systems that have enabled our properties to compete very favorably in the central Texas golf markets, we recognized an excellent opportunity to serve other owners of golf courses and subsequently offered our expertise and services to private companies and municipalities. Although far from being the largest management company, our company is at a stage that we offer a complete package of management expertise, a passion to create raving fans of our new clients and what we believe to be a remarkable value for the quality of service that our clients receive.
"To create an atmosphere of recreation, fun, and camaraderie for our customers and members and to strive to be a source of pride and enjoyment for them, their guests and our Team members. We will accomplish this by maintaining high quality standards, a product that offers first class recreation and relaxation, service that anticipates and satisfies, and an overall belief that when our customers are treated properly, our facilities are at their best.”
