Golf Course Due Diligence
Paradigm Golf Group is recognized as the leading technical property and operational due diligence expert in the nation. For the past 20 years, we have been retained by golf course and real estate buyers, sellers, equity providers, lenders and CPA firms who understand that front-end due diligence is the primary key to financial success. During this time, Paradigm has completed more than 100 comprehensive due diligence assignments where all parties in interest have been protected from the pitfalls associated with lack of effective knowledge regarding their golf properties.

This is augmented by the company’s recognition by individual property owners of Paradigm Golf Group as a leader in the industry and from its existing networks, which extend into all areas of the industry including golf industry professionals, trade suppliers, specialty golf property brokers, engineers, architects, land planners, attorneys, appraisers and CPA firms are in regular contact with Paradigm identifying industry events and owners in need of professional assistance.
Property evaluation is a team effort for Paradigm Golf Group. The entire process is executed with the direct supervision and hands-on participation of Michael Abee and Joseph Dahlstrom (Paradigm founding partners). A formal feasibility study is completed following our initial understanding of the general assignment parameters. This is followed immediately by an in depth field due diligence examination by the management team. Paradigm’s ability to quickly address and respond to all aspects of a potential property transaction is enhanced by years of property acquisition and development background. In addition, Paradigm’s facility-level operating and marketing expertise insures identification of trouble areas often missed by those with fee management background only.
