Upcoming Opens Spur Accommodation Updates
The Pilot – Tuesday, 26 November 2013
The historical significance of the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open being played in consecutive weeks at the same venue for the first time is not lost on Brown Golf Management officials.
“I think the Opens are going to be an amazing opportunity for the local area and local businesses,” said John A. Brown Jr., president of the Bluffton, S.C.-based company that owns the Country Club of Whispering Pines and Foxfire Resort and Golf Club. “We’re trying to do everything we can to position ourselves to take advantage of that opportunity.”
Brown’s company is in plenty of company. For much of this year, local establishments have been pouring money into upgrades ahead of next year’s Opens and the business opportunities they will bring.
