NAPLES, FL (May 17, 2017) – KOVA Golf Management, an elite group of executive leaders with extensive golf and hospitality industry experiences, has been created to provide customized strategies and solutions to a range of clients in the golf industry. 

Members of the KOVA Golf Management team have held leadership positions with The Ritz-Carlton® Naples, The PGA of America, PGA TOUR, WCI Communities, and at exclusive private clubs and resorts throughout the United States. Drawing on this background, KOVA Golf Management can deliver long-term benefits to club owners, their guests, and associates.  

At KOVA Golf Management, the commitment is to strengthen the brand of each client: It’s all about them.  

“We provide our clients with a competitive edge,” said Rick Rainville, President and Managing Partner of KOVA Golf Management. “Our experiences, philosophies, and offerings make us different from others in this business. KOVA Golf has the ability to leverage a variety of infrastructure platforms to deliver unique resources to our clubs—in finance and accounting, human resources, agronomy, property management, and investments.” 

KOVA Golf Management is an affiliate of KOVA Partners, LLC, a privately owned, full-service real estate firm and real estate investment fund manager based in Naples, Fla. KOVA (acronym for “Knowledge Opportunity Vision Accountability”).
