The Hoffmann Family of Companies has named Iain Mossman president of the newly created Hoffmann National Golf Division. This follows the company’s recent $45.3 million acquisition of Old Collier Golf Club in North Naples and the announcement of a 12-hole championship golf course to be built in Augusta, Missouri.
Beginning his career at the age of 18 in Scotland, Mossman is a former recipient of the South Florida PGA Professional of the Year Award, previously managed Piping Rock Golf Club of New York for 11 years and served as general manager for Old Collier Golf Club from 2007 to early 2021 before embarking on the construction and management of the Aurora International Golf Club in the Caribbean for nine months. Mossman also opened and managed three courses for WCI across the United States: Pelican’s Nest in Bonita Springs, Gateway Golf Course in Fort Myers and Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert, California.
“I’m honored to be joining the Hoffmann Family of Companies and excited about their vision for the Golf Division. The Hoffmann golf courses and clubs are outstanding and best in their class,” says Mossman, who will focus on development, operations, staffing, food & beverage and membership programs.
The Hoffmanns now own courses designed by top golf architects. Tom Fazio designed Old Collier Golf Club which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The Augusta Missouri 12-hole championship golf course is being designed by Rees Jones, credited with designing Tory pines in California where the US Open was just held and his father, Robert Trent Jones, designed Augusta National Golf Club.
“I’ve known Iain for many years. He’s well respected by the members and community and will do a phenomenal job in the national position overseeing our golf courses,” says David Hoffmann, founder of Hoffmann Family of Companies, which operates 36 companies in Florida and employs about 2,500 people, mostly in Southwest Florida. Hoffmann also has more than 240 total operations worldwide with 6,000 employees.
