KemperSports and the Perry family are pleased to announce the hiring of Brad Dutler as the new general manager of Buffalo Creek Golf Club in Rockwall, Texas. In this role, Dutler will oversee the entire business and operations for the club and lead the team in delivering an exceptional guest experience at Buffalo Creek Golf Club.
“I am very excited to bring an industry veteran of 23 years to Buffalo Creek Golf Club to lead our new vision for the future,” said Val D’Souza, vice president of operations for KemperSports. “Brad’s extensive knowledge of the golf industry and the Dallas-Fort Worth golf market make him an excellent fit to lead one of the finest public golf experiences in Texas.”
Most recently, Dutler served as an interim general manager at Broadmoor Golf Links in Fletcher, North Carolina, which is also managed by KemperSports. Previously, Dutler held leadership roles at Bear Creek Golf Club in DFW Airport, Texas; Foxtail Golf Club in Rohnert Park, California; and five other facilities across Missouri, Nevada and Texas.
Dutler’s appointment is one of many announcements that the Perry family has made since resuming oversight of the club last year, after a nearly 30 year-hiatus. “We are thrilled that Brad has joined the team to enhance the golf experience at Buffalo Creek,” said Kevin McCollum who represents the Perry family. “We are committed to the long-term success of this facility and we have partnered with KemperSports, a family-owned business with an exceptional reputation in the golf industry, to help us achieve our mission. Together, we will reshape the player experience and enhance the customer service at Buffalo Creek, while turning this facility into a community asset and welcoming destination for all who love the game.”
Buffalo Creek was recently ranked 11th on the GOLFPASS- 2021 Golfer’s Choice Awards’ “Top 25 Most Improved Golf Courses” list. This award is based on customer reviews and reflects the investments and improvements made at the property. New enhancements at Buffalo Creek include significantly improved course conditions and playability; a new fleet of state-of-the-art EZGO RXV golf carts; and award-winning customer service. In addition to enhancing the player experience at Buffalo Creek, KemperSports also plans to launch a number of events to engage the entire neighborhood.
“I am excited to continue to elevate the service and guest offerings at the club for golfers of all ages and skill levels,” Dutler said. “Beyond our golf facilities, Buffalo Creek’s natural beauty and scenic views provide a great environment for events like trivia dinners, game nights on the lawn and other social gatherings to bring families and the community together for fun and entertainment.”
