DALLAS (Feb. 26, 2021) – Century Golf Partners (Century Golf), one of the most experienced golf and club management companies in the world, and a Hankuk Industry partnership (HKI), have teamed up to acquire Las Posas Country Club, in Camarillo, California.
The acquisition of this member-owned club was finalized on Dec. 31, 2020 after the club members voted overwhelmingly to sell the club to the Century Golf partnership.
“For over a year, our Board investigated numerous options and evaluated many potential companies to partner with. Our goal was to preserve the perpetuity of our cultural uniqueness and assure the long-term success of our Club,” said Denis Barry, President of the Club’s Board of Directors.
“We ultimately chose Century Golf and HKI, and we are very pleased with the decision that was overwhelmingly approved by our membership. Existing golf members will receive an annual dues credit for the next several years and there will be no member assessments. The Club also looks forward to the extensive capital improvements that are planned as well as the other “essentials” that our members requested and which were agreed upon as part of the deal.”
Century Golf Partners will manage Las Posas Country Club under its Arnold Palmer Golf Management brand and will provide members reciprocal access to its worldwide Palmer Advantage club network.
“We are looking forward to working with the Club’s members and management team to preserve the Club’s culture and rich history,” stated Doug Howe, a Partner of Century Golf. “We have great respect for decades of Club traditions and fun events the members enjoy. We appreciate the members’ support and the many friends they are already inviting to join the Club.”
