PGA Tour player Ryan Moore starts business that affects local golf

Updated: February 2, 2012

Pacific Northwest native and PGA Tour star Ryan Moore has decided to make a mark off the golf course as well as on it.

Moore, along with several others, have formed Ryan Moore Golf Course Management LLC, a group which has taken over three courses and hopes to pump life into the golf economy of the South Puget Sound.

The formation came this winter and already the company has taken over operations at McCormick Woods Golf Course in Port Orchard, The Classic in Spanaway and has purchased Oakbrook Country Club in Tacoma. Others in the group include Moore’s father Mike and brother Jason, Shawn Cucciardi and JD Rastovski.

This is the latest venture for Moore who has shown an interest off the golf course as well. He became a minority owner in Scratch Golf in 2009 but left for Adams Golf. In the same time, he also became a founder and co-owner of True Linkswear, a Phoenix-based golf shoe and apparel company.

Moore’s golf company will offer three levels of unlimited golf memberships at the three courses, ranging from its three-course all-access for $179 per month to a one-course, $99-per-month deal. There are also other deals available.

“We want this to be a product that appeals to everyone,” said Moore, who recently got married. “And not just to people who are 45 and can afford a membership and go play golf any time they want. We want people to have great facilities that they can play at a reasonable rate.”
