Jim Cucinelli, Owner Operator
Jim purchased Ridgemont Country Club from his fellow members in May 2013. Prior to the transition, RCC had experienced several years of declining membership. In the private club industry, deficits are offset by either raising dues or assessing. Both actions, in practice, only serve to erode member rolls further. Jim proposed to sustain the membership by freezing dues, eliminating possible assessments, and providing significant improvements, if the members agreed to sell the club. Ridgemont then became the only Privately OWNED Private Country Club in the RDGA. His vision was to build the best value all appeal golf country club in the area.
