In addition, Golf Resources Group will continue providing club management in existing facilities, repositioning of current facilities and the launching of new facilities.

“With almost 25 years of experience and knowledge of the golf course industry, we will provide our clients the direction, leadership and expertise needed to improve and maximize their business performance and potential,” Weibring said.

Golf Resources Group is currently working on three projects for clients in Iowa and Illinois.  They include:  turnaround management for Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines, IA, operational and marketing consulting for Weibring Golf Club at Illinois State University and start up golf course management for Metamora Fields Golf Club in Metamora , IL

Leading the daily efforts for the Golf Resources Group is Bill Kirkendall, CEO, and Dan Budzius, who will serve as president/director of operations of Golf Resources Group. Weibring serves as founder and chairman and Steve Wolfard, lead architect.
