Since 1985, the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation (BMGC) has successfully managed, operated and developed Baltimore’s Classic Five Golf courses: Mount Pleasant, Pine Ridge, Clifton Park, Forest Park and Carroll Park.
BMGC was founded to turn around the City’s public golf courses that were losing money and in disrepair under the leadership of the Department of Recreation and Parks. Over the years, BMGC — a first-of-its-kind, private, 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation – established a model that made it possible for the company to, among other things:
- Invest over $15.5 million in capital expenditures to the golf courses and facilities
- Create a junior golf program that hosts over 500 youth each year
- Annually have the most competitive greens fees in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area
- Provide $8.175 million to Baltimore City via the Youth Activity Fund and the Baltimore City Foundation
The golf courses are anchors in their communities; providing stable and consistent neighbors. They enable recreation for all ages, and provide an avenue for young men and women to be challenged physically and mentally while teaching self-monitoring of the rules.
