Billy Casper takes tour of six Billy Casper Golf-managed courses

VIENNA, Va. -- Legendary golfer Billy Casper entertained thousands of golfers during his recent tour of six Billy Casper Golf (BCG)-managed courses in four states.

A Masters and two-time U.S. Open champion with 51 PGA TOUR victories, Casper engaged fans with golf tales, conducted putting clinics, provided swing tips, signed countless autographs, posed for photos and in participated in Q&A sessions.

Casper visited The Golf Club at Ravenna (Littleton, CO), Beekman Golf Club (Hopewell Junction, NY), Lyman Orchards Golf Club (Middlefield, CT), Wintonbury Hills Golf Course (Bloomfield, CT), Ocean Pines Golf & Country Club (Ocean City, MD) and Compass Pointe Golf Courses (Pasadena, MD).

Casper, 81, remains incredibly popular and his recently-released book, "The Big Three and Me," has received critical acclaim. Early this year, he accepted the 2013 Award of Merit from the National Golf Course Owners Association for his long-term and significant contributions in and beyond golf. The honor follows the PGA of America presenting Casper with its Distinguished Service Award.

"I always joke that I'm busier now than when I played on TOUR," says Casper, a member of the PGA and World Golf Hall of Fame. "The fact is, I love traveling to Billy Casper Golf courses, making new friends and interacting with golfers who love this great game."

"We are grateful to Billy Casper and we follow his integrity in operating our business," says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. "Although his playing days are behind him, 'The Billy Factor' helps drive golfers to courses managed by Billy Casper Golf."
