Heritage Golf Group acquired Inverness Country Club and Riverchase Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama, in March, bringing the total number of courses under its purview to 30.

This story was initially reported by Golf Inc. magazine.

The acquisitions are the first properties in the Birmingham area for Heritage. The management company has grown very quickly since its relaunch in 2020 under the leadership of president and CEO Mark Burnett.

“We are extremely excited to be in the Birmingham market as it continues to be a growing metropolitan area with vibrant suburbs and a downtown renaissance underway,” said Mark Burnett, President & CEO, Heritage Golf Group. 

“Inverness Country Club and Riverchase Country Club are both full service private clubs in large residential communities that will complement our growing network of clubs. We look forward to working with the Members and Staff to enhance the Member and Guest experiences.”

Inverness Country Club hosts a par-71 18-hole championship course designed by George Cobb, a practice facility and a set of junior tees. The club recently renovated the 23,000-square-foot clubhouse to include a full-service restaurant, outdoor patio, private event spaces and a 300-person-capacity ballroom. 

Other features of the club include a 4,000-square-foot fitness center, a group exercise studio, a private Pilates studio, a childcare center and a renovated and expanded tennis facility.

An extensive capital improvement program will renovate the par-72 18-hole championship golf course and will include a greens renovation project, irrigation system upgrade and new course and practice range amenities. 

The second phase will add indoor and outdoor food and beverage enhancements to the 35,000-square-foot clubhouse.
