Growing the Game

Growing the Game

At the forefront of everything East Coast Golf Management brings to their golf course clientele is their complete dedication to growth of the game of golf. No potential area for improving the game, bringing new golfers into the game, and improving golf course profitability is left unattended. We pay attention to all the excuses we hear for stagnant growth, and work with out clients to take the appropriate action to address them.

Platinum Golf Membership

Membership does have its privileges…and at times its negatives. Having a membership program that allows golfers to play a large variety of courses at membership reduced rates is at the core of the Platinum Golf Membership included in the ECGM program. There are member tournaments, mulit-play discounts, and often gift cards that accompany membership.

Junior Golf

One doesn’t have to look far to see the significant increases in golf interest at the junior, collegiate, and amateur levels. To assist in converting this interest into future rounds of golf, that youthful engagement has to continue into adulthood, At ECGM we believe in offering incentives for junior play at our courses promoting potential growth for future rounds. At all ECGM courses juniors play free with an accompanying adult. “Let’s work together to ensure golf continues to be part of the lives of today’s youth!”  Mike Buccerone, President, East coast Golf Management.

Gene’s Dream Foundation

The Gene’s Dream Foundation honors the life and accomplishments of Gene Weldon. It is the culmination of family and friends impacted by the persistence of this legendary mentor to introduce golf to children and teach them how to love the game. Throughout his life, Gene left his mark on the golf industry in the Myrtle Beach, SC area through mentoring youth. His impact has been spread by those he inspired to be the best they can be. Many people throughout the golf industry credit their success and understanding of life through golf to Gene Weldon.

First Tee

Supporting and participating in the First Tee and everything it brings to the game is a vital part of golf course engagement. ECGM courses all support the First Tee programs in their respective communities.


There are millions of “differently-abled” golfers around our country with interest in golf. There are certainly challenges associated with properly accommodating many of these golfers to ensure a pleasant and safe experience.  ECGM is working with members of the paragolf community to find solutions that bring these golfers and their friends into the game.
