Johnson Golf Mgmt Blog Interview

Blog Interview with Doug Johnson of Johnson Golf Management Blog Interview

1) Tell me a little bit about yourself and your company?

Please visit our website at, this will give you more info on us.

2) Understand you manage Pakachoag Golf Course in Auburn, can you tell me a little bit about your winning bid specifically how much you have paid to the town of Auburn each year?

We have been at Pakachoag for 12+ years. We won a ten year contract from 1997 to 2006. We are currently operating Pakachoag on a year to year basis due to litigation with the last contract. Under our ten year contract we paid the town an average of $50,000 per year plus did approx. $200,000 in capital improvements.

3) You are responsible for all maintenance, employees at Pakachoag?

Yes. We are responsible for all employees for the total operation.

4) Would you be interested in running Green Hill Golf Course in Worcester ?

Yes, but they need to get their act together and do what is right for the taxpayers. By this I mean the golf course is a city asset and should be making money for the city. The facts have shown that the best way for a city or town is to privatize and lease the facility and get a return for the taxpayers.

5) Do the other courses that you manage sell alcohol?

Most of our course do sell alcohol. We have held as many as six liquor licenses at a time in Masssachusetts. We have lots of experience in the F&B area including functions and weddings, . see website.

If anyone has any questions please leave a comment and hopefully Mr Johnson will get back to us.

.Thank you
