Commitment to the quality management of municipal golf courses

Premier Golf Centers, LLC. was established in 2001 and managed 11 golf courses for seven municipalities in the Puget Sound region including the city of Seattle, where the company was headquartered. Its primary focus was the management of golf courses and golf learning centers for municipalities. Premier Golf provided full management of all operations, including golf course operations, practice range operations, retail pro shop operations including merchandise procurement and sales, food and beverage operations including banquets and events, alcoholic beverage licensing and operation, golf instruction programs including adult and junior golf programs and clinics, and management of other amenities such as miniature golf.

Premier Golf’s mission was to provide the highest quality facility and service to our patrons that will enable us to achieve customer satisfaction second to none. This mission encompassed all amenities, golf course, practice facility, instructional programs, pro shop and restaurant with the ultimate goal to provide a fun experience for all who visit Premier Golf Centers. In order to accomplish this mission.

About the Founder

Bill Schickler is the founder and President of Premier Golf Centers, LLC., leading the company to managing 13 golf courses for seven municipalities, with over $25 million in revenue and 600,000 rounds of golf in the Pacific Northwest.

After a successful carrier in the entertainment industry, Bill changed directions and entered the golf business in 1990. After spending a couple of years trying to develop new golf courses just as the industry was retreating, he recognized a growing need for driving ranges and golf learning centers. He then formed a company to develop golf learning centers on the west coast.

After developing two facilities, Bill merged his company with the fledgling Family Golf Centers, Inc. Bill was one of three senior executives that developed Family Golf into one the leading golf companies in the U.S., rapidly growing to become the leader in golf driving ranges and learning centers, with more than 100 facilities in 25 states and three provinces of Canada.

In 2000 Bill formed Premier Golf Centers, LLC, to manage municipal golf courses in the Pacific Northwest. Premier Golf grew rapidly, adding nearly a course a year, and is recognized as the clear leader in municipal golf course management in the Pacific Northwest, with a reputation for turning around struggling golf programs for their municipal owners.
