Bloom Golf Management, which owns and operates The Oaks Golf Club in Pass Christian, Mississippi, has announced a full-service management contract with Heron Lakes Country Club in Mobile, Alabama.
Earlier this fall, Bloom entered into an agreement to bolster the 18 hole private golf club originally designed by Harold Stallings in 1954. Hurricane Frederick caused significant tree damage in 1979 and widened many of the fairways. In 2000, the Heron Lakes residential sub-division was started which allowed famed Alabama golf course designer Earl Stone to create four new challenging holes surrounded by six lakes. Then in 2004, all 18 greens were converted to Champion bermuda grass.
Recently, after securing new investments, a significant renovation project to both the 6800 yard golf course and the 46,000 square foot clubhouse had commenced in late November. The club will convert to a semi-private golf club while maintaining some of the private facilities in the clubhouse upon completion of the renovation.
“We are excited for the opportunity to restore Heron Lakes CC to its prominence in the Metro Mobile area, and the renovations should go a long way in doing that,” said Russ Bloom, President of Bloom Golf Management. “A renewed commitment to service and to the golf experience are our top priorities.”
The large Heron Lakes clubhouse includes 5,000 square feet of banquet space, several dining options, an Olympic-size swimming pool, nine tennis courts and a fitness center. Already known as one of Mobile’s premier special event venues, the improved facility will be able to accommodate functions from 20 to 400 with more opportunities in 2018.
