Folks, Puyallup’s Ryan Moore is on the prowl again – in the business world.

Word leaked out earlier this week that Moore and his family purchased Oakbrook Golf and Country Club in Lakewood. That is only the half of it.

An excerpt from my A1 centerpiece story for Saturday. …

Moore and 13 partners – mainly friends and family – formed RMG Golf Course Management LLC, which aims to pump a little life back in the South Sound’s sagging golf economy.

Not only will RMG Club run the day-to-day operations at the Classic Country Club in Spanaway and McCormick Woods in Port Orchard, the company made a bombshell of an announcement Thursday with its acquisition of Oakbrook Golf and Country Club in Lakewood.

With those three venues in the fold, RMG Club will launch its membership-driven business model Jan. 1 that is certain to attract all types of golfers.

The company will offer three levels of unlimited-golf memberships, ranging from its three-course, all-access $179-per-month package, to a one-course, $99-per-month rate, to a twilight-only $49-per-month package.

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