Canongate to Manage PTC Tennis Center

The City of Peachtree City officially awarded the management contract for the Peachtree City Tennis Center to Sequoia Golf, DBA Canongate Golf Clubs ( on Thursday, June 18. The City chose Canongate on the merits of its proposal that met the City's goals of improving the Tennis Center's operations and attracting more tournaments, while reducing the operational costs for Peachtree City's taxpayers. Canongate will assume operation of the Center on or around July 1. Canongate is well known as a provider of excellent services and facilities in the golf and membership arena. Primarily known for golf, Canongate has a wide array of experience managing tennis operations both in Georgia and in The Woodlands, Texas.
Notable tennis facilities operated by Canongate include The Woodlands Country Club with 21 courts and Healy Point Country Club in Macon with 10 courts. Both are among the most successful tennis operations in the nation; thus, Canongate sees the Peachtree City Tennis Center as being most closely aligned with what these two clubs offer.

Canongate plans to operate the Peachtree City Tennis Center as a high quality facility with public access, while also providing membership options and services, including a continuation of current memberships. Canongate is also committed to facility improvements and maintaining an array of relevant programming for tennis enthusiasts throughout the area. Just as Canongate has invested in facility improvements at its golf clubs, the company plans to upgrade several areas of the tennis center in addition to exploring additional services such as fitness and child care.

"The Peachtree City Tennis Center can be much more than a wonderful recreational facility, drawing tournaments that fuel the economy and help to support our tax base," said Peachtree City Mayor Harold Logsdon. "We are confident in Canongate's ability to continue serving the existing members while taking the center to the next level. Through the operation of the area golf courses, Canongate knows Peachtree City and the expectations of the community."

According to Sequoia founder Joe Guerra, “Peachtree City is truly a special place and we are proud to be such a big part of the lifestyle that draws families to it. We are committed to earning the support of the residents by delivering quality programs and services that exceed their expectations.” Canongate plans to continue working with area high schools and increase tournament play at the Tennis Center. There are no significant pricing changes planned and current employees will be eligible for hire by Canongate.
