Algie M. Pulley, Jr. has served the golf industry in design, development, management, and planning golf course and support facilities since 1967, and is dedicated to the creation of quality golf course facilities throughout the world. He offers the expertise and continuity of professional consulting, not only in golf course projects from the original concept through completion, but through ongoing management participation. The focus is on building positive human relationships through golf by establishing a pleasant, positive attitude beginning with the management staff and exuding through all employees.
Recognizing the many ups and downs of the golf industry during its unique history, and astutely aware of changing times, Pulley sets forth innovative solutions to meet the changing needs of the industry by calling upon a wealth of specialists in all areas of creation and ultimate operation of new golf projects. The phases of development include: Pre-Acquisition Analysis, Feasibility Study, Financing, Joint Venture Structuring, and Master Planning for Land Use, Golf Course Design, the Approval Process, Project Marketing, and Operational Management.
SPECIFIC PROJECTS OF NOTE
Woodmore is a 750 acre, upscale planned unit development located in Prince Georges County, in the eastern suburbs of Washington, D.C. The project consists of an 18 hole championship golf course, clubhouse, tennis courts, swimming complex, and a 40 acre lake. Residential units surround the golf course and consists of single family homes and attached units fronting on the lake as well as the golf course.
Responsibilities were to negotiate land acquisition agreements with 5 different owners, assemble a team of associated design consultants including land planners, engineers, architects, and environmental specialists, and coordinate complete development of the project. Included in this responsibility was to negotiate an agreement with Arnold Palmer to be part of the project. In addition to assisting with golf course design, Palmer later became a principal in the project. Today the Woodmore community and The Country Club at Woodmore are considered one of the finest in the eastern suburbs of Washington, D.C.
The Chardonnay Club
The Chardonnay Club consists of a stand alone golf project located in the Napa Valley of California. The project originally had two 18 hole championship golf courses surrounded by 150 acres of Chardonnay vineyards for the landscape. Later, 9 holes of the project were sold to Eagle Vines and at this time, Chardonnay has only 18 holes.
Responsibilities were to assemble the land, approximately 600 acres, coordinate the design of the golf course, clubhouse, entrance road and parking lot and manage the entitlement process in an 18 month time frame. After approvals the responsibility expanded to include construction management for the entire facility.
A most exciting project is Belmont Hills Golf Club and residential community located in Bermuda. The project involved complete renovation of an existing golf course associated with the former Belmont Hotel there. It also involved a new residential component consisting of luxury villas in a portion of the refurbished hotel and single family homes overlooking The Great Sound and Hamilton.
Responsibilities included redesign of the golf course in working with a team of land planners, architects and engineers. Plans were prepared for government submittal as part of the planning process. Upon receipt of approvals, responsibilities were expanded to include construction management and material coordination from the United States.
