L&J Golf, LLC, a golf course management company based in Snellville that was formed in 2019, has purchased Trenton Golf Club with the intention of making improvements.
Trenton Golf Club is the fourth L&J Golf property. The others include Country Club of Gwinnett in Snellville, Jennings Mill Country Club in Watkinsville, and Lane Creek Golf Club in Bishop.
“Jorge Martinez, CEO, has a commercial real estate and finance background and I have a golf background. We met each other in 2018,” David Biscan, COO of L&J Management Division, said. “Jorge was approached by a golf course ownership group and asked if he would be interested in buying Country Club of Gwinnett. We ended up purchasing the facility in March of 2019.”
Biscan continued, “Our claim of fame is fixing things. We go in there, make observations and enhance what is there. I have been around the business a long time, we are both members of clubs, and we have a pretty good idea of what people are looking for. A lot of times it is just TLC.”
L&J Golf heard about the Trenton Golf Club through networking, and the company thought it would be a great opportunity to expand to the north Georgia market. This will be their first golf course in the northwestern part of Georgia.
“There was an opportunity with this golf course, nearly 500 acres came with it. We see the opportunity to develop that. We would like to develop a neighborhood adjacent to the course. We are going to begin developing the land in 2022,” Biscan said.
In addition, L&J Golf will renovate the entire existing Trenton Golf Club. This will include putting a restaurant on the premises and renovating the house that is currently there for stay and play.
“We want to make Trenton Golf Club a stay and play,” Biscan said. “We have a vision to put in cabins or some other type of housing. Trenton Golf Club has absolutely gorgeous vistas. On the golf course are a handful of very nice homes. We want to do everything to complement that area. We want to make it a place that people want to go to and hangout and make memories with their family.”
Trenton Golf Club, a semi-private golf course, is located at 2060 Back Valley Road, and is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Biscan noted that there may be some inconveniences regarding renovations, but players will still be able to play on the course as the renovations occur in the background.
The 18-hole golf course, playing 6,405 yards, features a par 72, with Bermuda fairways and Bent grass greens.
