Passion and persistence
The Russo family has owned and developed the Eagle Ridge course and facilities for over 15 years. Nick Russo was passionate about the business and commenced the construction of the Clubhouse and Course Master Plan with a focus few could match. Much to our membersâ€™ amusement (and often dismay), he was not an avid golfer at all, which allowed him to see the course and facilities as a total package â€“ he built our functions venue (home to some of the Peninsulaâ€™s most stunning weddings), developed our outstanding corporate golf products (we are now a leader in corporate golf events) as well as learning about and delivering a great day out for golfers, whether they be green fee players, corporate guests or members.
We lost Nick after a battle with cancer in 2007. The Eagle Ridge family has found it hard to bounce back after his death, but under the direction of Wayne Lucas (General Manager), Nickâ€™s son-in-law Andrew Davies (Principal) and daughter Katie Russo (Marketing Director) we are back on track with renewed vigour. The Russo family thanks all staff, members and partners for their support over the last five years as we have seen the course go from strength to strength. We are always extremely proud of the hard work all members of staff put in and the fruits of that work are evident in the friendly service provided to our customers and the consistent impeccable condition of our Clubhouse and wonderful course.
It's with regret that the Russo family have decided to "pass the baton" to a new owner. In October 2012, we commenced an "expressions of interest" campaign. For full details, head to www.ownagolfcourse.com.au.
