BCG Congratulates 'Buffy Award' Winners

Buffy Award

Billy Casper Golf recently announced the winners of the second annual "Buffy Awards." The national awards recognize the "best of the best' in six categories including "General Manger of the Year", "Superintendent of the Year" and "Facility of the Year." Congratulations to the following: 

Sanctuary Lake Golf Course (Troy, Mich.) -- Facility of the Year
Last year, Sanctuary Lake took home the inaugural Buffy Award for “Top Performer of the Year.” Situated a half-hour north of Detroit, the links-style layout offers one of the most unique golf experiences in the region. The par-71 course is built on 190 acres of rolling landscape with 80 strategically-placed bunkers and small, undulating bent grass greens. In addition to a memorable course, Sanctuary Lakes also boasts an impressive practice area featuring 70 hitting stations with both natural and artificial hitting surfaces and two practice greens.  

Quarry Pines Golf Club (Tucson, Ariz.) -- Top Performer of the Year
One of southern Arizona’s premier public courses, Quarry Pines offers a mix of dramatic elevation changes and stunning mountain views over 18 enjoyable holes.  

Lester Park Golf Course (Duluth, Minn.) --  ACE Award
The "ACE Award" is presented to the facility that embodied the best overall employee, guest and member experience. Every BCG employee – from general manager to starter, golf shop clerk to maintenance crew member – experiences ACE the GUEST Experience, a proprietary employee training and coaching program. 

Pat Franklin (The Meadows Country Club in Sarasota, Fla.) -- Superintendent of the Year 

Nick Rash (Highland Woods Golf Course in Hoffman Estates, Ill.) -- General Manager of the Year

Hans Mahler (Accounts Payable Supervisor, Virginia Support Office) -- VSO Employee of the Year 

The winners were announced on the May all-staff call, a monthly meeting which brings together employees from BCG- and Billy Casper Signature-managed courses across the country.
