IGM Maintains Golf Week's Top Municipal Golf Course - North Palm Beach Country Club

Golfweek's Best Municipal Courses list features the nation's top 50 government owned golf courses that truly boast a higher standard for public golf. “We are very proud to have North Palm Beach named in Golfweek Magazine’s 2009 top municipal courses listing,” said IGM’s Executive Vice President, Greg Plotner. “My praise and recognition goes to all of those who worked hard to receive such a prestigious honor. It’s truly special to be included in the same category as the other great golf clubs that also made the list.”

To produce the Golfweek's Best Municipal Courses list, a nationwide team of more than 475 evaluators rated the layouts on the basis of 10 criteria - including routing, conditioning, variety and memorability of holes.

About North Palm Beach Country Club:
The North Palm Beach Country Club consists of an 18-hole, Jack Nicklaus “Signature” Course. NPBCC is only the third “Signature” municipal golf course designed by Nicklaus – a renovation which was completed in 2006. Aside from the improved playability, the Nicklaus redesign included a new irrigation system, total re-grassing of all the playing surfaces, new greens and improved fairway surface drainage. The facility also has a lighted driving range, putting green, golf shop, and a well-appointed locker room facility.

“To help maintain the “Nicklaus Standard,” we turned to IGM. Since assuming the maintenance responsibilities in the fall of 2007, the condition of the golf course has helped achieve a level of conditioning never seen before at North Palm Beach Country Club. We live in the land of high-end private clubs, and we now have a municipal course that is maintained at an equivalent level. With IGM and our superintendent Shane McGuire at the helm, we know we are in good hands.” - Mike Gray, General Manager, North Palm Beach Country Club
