WARMINSTER, Pa. (Jan. 4, 2018) — Five Ponds Golf Club, a championship caliber public golf course in Bucks County, is proud to announce that it has been named the Pennsylvania Golf Course Owners (PGO) 2018 Golf Course of the Year. Five Ponds is owned by Warminster Township and has been operated by Spirit Golf Management since 2014.

Each year, the PGO honors a member course in the state that demonstrates four criteria: exceptional quality of the course, exceptional quality of ownership and management, outstanding contribution to its community, and significant contribution to the game. Previous PGO Courses of the Year include Wedgewood Golf Course (2017), Conley Golf Resort (2016) and the Spirit Golf-operated Makefield Highlands Golf Club (2015).

“Five Ponds not only exhibits the qualities we look for every year when choosing a course of the year, but we also recognize Spirit Golf for continued excellence in golf course management, and a commitment to the fellowship, advocacy, and best practices as members of the PGO,” said PGO Executive Director Gregg Acri.

Warminster’s Five Ponds Golf Club has been named the Pennsylvania Golf Course Owners 2018 Golf Course of the Year. Five Ponds is owned by Warminster Township and has been operated by Spirit Golf Management since 2014.

Over the past four years, Five Ponds has enjoyed tremendous growth in player development and participation programs. With multiple award-winning PGA Professionals on staff, enrollment in the club’s junior camps, “Get Golf Ready” classes, and clinics have tripled. Nearly 40 juniors have signed up to participate in the club’s new fall season programs, and Five Ponds’ PGA Junior League involvement has expanded from one team with eight players in 2014, to 25 players and two teams during the 2017 season.

Community outreach is also an important initiative launched by Spirit Golf at Five Ponds. The club has partnered with organizations such as Women on Course, The Mid-Atlantic Blind Golfers Association and local Chambers of Commerce to help grow the game of golf in Bucks County.

“The Spirit Golf Management team is committed to creating a golf environment that is inclusive and fun for all our residents and the local community,” said Spirit Golf Management President Mike Attara. “We enjoyed a great season with excellent course conditions and terrific support for our expanded junior programming, men’s and ladies’ league play, and golf outing business.”
