OB Sports Golf Management chosen by City of Tucson to manage its five municipal golf courses

The City of Tucson selected OB Sports Golf Management to manage its five municipal golf courses — Dell Urich, El Rio, Fred Enke, Randolph and Silverbell.  Effective February 1, 2014, OB Sports will assume responsibility for all facets of operations at these five courses including course maintenance, marketing, customer service, golf shop operations, food and beverage, and human resources.

The announcement came after an extensive review process undertaken by the City that resulted in the decision to hire an outside agency to manage the courses while the City retains ownership.  Through a competitive RFP process, OB Sports eventually earned the contract, edging out 15 other golf course management companies along the way.

“We look forward to a productive working relationship with OB Sports,” said Richard Miranda, City of Tucson Manager. “We believe with their experience in the Arizona golf market and their approach to golf facility management, OB Sports can achieve the goals we share of enhancing the golf experience for those who play on the five Tucson City Golf Courses and moving our golf operations toward financial stability.”

OB Sports Golf Management is a diversified, golf-oriented company with a long history of success in the golf industry. OB Sports currently manages 55 premier golf courses and country clubs throughout the United States. Known for its comprehensive and personalized services since 1972, OB Sports has become widely acclaimed as the leader in boutique-style golf course management.
