Developer Credibility

Construction of the Nashville golf club - The Governors Club began in 1987 by David Schwab. Unable to obtain construction financing, Schwab partnered with real estate developer David Miller in 1995. After irreconcilable differences, in 1999 the partnership ended between Schwab and Miller. Construction financing was obtained in 1998 from Los Angeles based Oaktree Capital Management, from what we can see Oaktree Capital Management still owns the club today.

In 2005, 27 club members sued Oaktree Capital Management for lack of disclosure of internal accounting practices effecting club membership values. In 2008, Oaktree Capital Management lost the appeal in its attempt to move the case to federal court. We are waiting to find out the conclusion of this lawsuit about this gated Nashville golf community. 

Oaktree Capital Management owns the remaining developer lots and all of the club amenities. KemperSports based in Illinois now manages and operates the golf club.
