DALLAS (Nov. 18, 2019) – ClubLife Management – a full-service management and consulting division of ClubCorp – ends its first year of operations with the announcement it has been selected to operate Seminole Legacy Golf Club at Florida State University (FSU) in Tallahassee.

Launched in November 2018, ClubLife Management quickly established a new paradigm in private club consulting by tailoring its services to the unique needs of clubs and by leveraging ClubCorp’s unmatched reciprocal club network of more than 300 clubs, supplier purchasing power, innovation, and continual enhancement to the member experience.

ClubLife Management’s newest client, the FSU Seminole Legacy Golf Club, is set to open in early 2020. The Club includes the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course, recently redesigned by Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II. The Club will serve as home course to the FSU men’s and women’s golf teams, as well as cater to Club members and FSU students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends. The facility includes a restaurant, pro shop, driving range and practice putting green for members and guests.

Over the last 12 months, ClubLife Management added eight new properties to its portfolio, several consulting assignments and is in discussions with clubs in California, Florida, New Jersey, Illinois and Mexico and Central America. The new properties include:

  • PGA National Members Club in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
  • Boca Lago Country Club in Boca Raton, FL
  • Chateau Golf & Country Club in Kenner, LA
  • Crystal Lake Country Club in Crystal Lake, IL
  • Engineers Country Club in Roslyn Harbor, NY
  • Midlothian Country Club in Midlothian, IL
  • River Run Country Club in Davidson, NC
