Fairfield Harbour POA Partners with Billy Casper Golf to Ensure Success of Harbour Pointe Golf Club

Local Boating and Golf Community’s Golf Club to Work with Property Owners Association to Continue Management and Improvements at Harbour Pointe

New Bern, NC, January 15, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Fairfield Harbour, a residential boating and golf community located 15 minutes from historic New Bern, announced the Fairfield Harbour Property Owners Association (POA) will partner with Billy Casper Golf (BCG), owner or operator of more than 150 golf facilities in 28 states, in its management of Harbour Pointe Golf Club to ensure the club’s success as a resort-style 18-hole, par 72, championship course. Together, BCG and the Fairfield Harbour POA will keep Harbour Pointe maintained at top quality and encourage all visitors to utilize the picturesque course and facilities.

BCG, who has built one of the most successful operating platforms for managing golf courses in the golf industry, began managing Harbour Pointe in May 2011. Since that time, BCG representatives have made tremendous improvements to the course conditions, including retrofitting the irrigation system, upgrading the irrigation pump stations, working on bunkers and renovating the clubhouse to serve as a central social gathering place for property owners, members and guests.

BCG also oversees all aspects of Harbour Pointe operation, including golf course and property maintenance, sales, marketing and public relations, staffing and training, merchandising, restaurant and banquet activities, financial management, golf instruction and special events.

To update all current and potential members on the continued successful management of Harbour Pointe, BCG will host a members meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 5 p.m. at the golf course pro shop. There will be gate passes available for those who live outside the community and are interested in joining the club. To register, contact Michael Cooper, general manager of Harbour Pointe Golf Club, at (252) 638-5338.

“The POA Board will continue to work with Billy Casper Golf to ensure the success of Harbour Pointe Golf Club,” said Larry Knapp, president of the Fairfield Harbour board of directors. “BCG has gone to great lengths to revamp Harbour Pointe as a first-class facility, and we look forward to working together so there will continue to be excellent golf and golf services at Harbour Pointe for years to come.”

“Fairfield Harbour remains a wonderful resort-style community that we are proud to be a part of,” said Chip Harris, regional manager for Billy Casper Golf. “Leaders of the community have dedicated a great deal of time and resources to restore Harbour Pointe Golf Club to be a facility that attracts golfers, supports members of the community and stands as a place all can enjoy.”
