“Renaissance is a club that is focused solely on providing our members and guests with a club experience beyond what is just expected.”

The National Golf Course Owner’s Association announced today that Renaissance Golf Club has been selected as the “Course of the Year” for 2012 by its New England Chapter.

Once a year, each NGCOA regional organization selects a “Course of the Year” to represent that Chapter who then make up the nominees for the National Course of the Year, announced at the annual Golf Industry Show, which is being held in Las Vegas this coming February.

“Renaissance is a club that is focused solely on providing our members and guests with a club experience beyond what is just expected,” said Mike McGillicuddy, General Manager. “We are honored that the New England Chapter of the National Golf Course Owner’s Association has recognized Renaissance in this manner and it motivates us further in our quest for excellence.”
The award of “Course of the Year” recognizes Renaissance Golf Club and its staff as a model operation in the industry, taking into consideration four key components: 1) Exceptional Quality of the Course 2) Exceptional Quality of Ownership and Management 3) Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community and 4) Significant Contributions to the Game.

“It feels great to be recognized like this by the NEGCOA,” said Greg Sherwood, President – Southworth Golf. “It shows that we are succeeding in our mission to make Renaissance a club that truly stands out. A lot goes into it. Our outstanding women’s golf program is just one example of Renaissance’s commitment to providing a club for the entire family -- a place where the programs and facilities for men, women and children are of equal importance.”
