CHICAGO and INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Indianapolis-based Green Golf Partners (GGP), which manages 15 golf courses in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin and the Southeast, has seen continued significant growth in rounds played with unseasonably warm weather in the upper Midwest.  Since November 1, the National Weather Service has reported temperatures as high as the upper 70's to low 60's during the day, which is an unusual blessing for dedicated amateur and professional golfers alike.

"These blue skies and warmer temperatures have created additional "bonus" revenue directly to our golf properties bottom line," said Matt McIntee, CEO of Green Golf Partners.  "Our general managers at courses from Des Moines to Indianapolis and Chicago are working overtime to meet the unprecedented demand for serious and casual golfers to come out to play before snow blankets courses in a few short weeks."

"We are seeing so many new faces coming out to play golf at Jester Park this past week," said Roy Michael, General Manager for Jester Park Golf Club in Granger, Iowa.  "We did over 180 rounds on Tuesday and 135 rounds on Wednesday, which most courses in the area do not reach in their prime time season during the summer."

Here is a sample of GGP golf course rounds played and greens fees revenue growth for November 2015 vs. November 2014 for November 1 through close of business November 4.
