Management not only thing changing at OP golf course

(Feb. 26, 2015) Ocean Pines appears to be changing more than management companies at the community golf course after selecting Landscapes Unlimited to replace Billy Casper Golf.
Previously, Casper provided monthly financial and operational reports to the general manager. Under the new agreement with Landscape Unlimited, that will apparently change, as management could report directly to the seven-member board of directors.
Casper had been showing signs of improvement after having a disastrous first year, partially because nine of the 18 holes were shut down by construction. According to the Jan. 23 general manager’s report, Casper posted a $146,107 year-to-date improvement over fiscal year 2014.
Some have speculated that the uncertainly surrounding management may negatively affected early-season bookings at the course. One possible indication of that can be found in the fiscal year 2016 budget draft, which initially showed a $14,124 projected loss for the course. The board has since amended that number to a loss of $50,000.
