Lakefront Enterprises is a locally owned and operated company, located in Swanton, MD. The owner is Bret WInegardener, who moved to the area and started his business over 25 years ago. A true small business success story, the company has grown from a single owner/operator to a successful excavating business providing contractor services across the Deep Creek Lake area. Lakefront Enterprises was on site for construction of the first nine holes of Thousand Acres and has taken the lead in construction of the back nine holes currently underway. In addition to the golf course, Lakefront Enterprises has also constructed some of the roads and development features within the Thousand Acres community. Building golf courses is not something we set out to do, but thanks to Thousand Acres Golf Club, we have expanded our services. Golf course construction is as rewarding as any work we do!

“This is a dream job for me. I get to finish what I started, do what I love, and help develop and manage one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in any resort area.”
Craig Yutzy - Director of Golf Operations
I grew up in Meyersdale, PA. From the early age of 12, I’ve loved the game of golf. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BA in Accounting and Economics. Since 1995, I’ve been a Class A member of the PGA. I began my professional career at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Most recently, I was the GM/Golf Professional at Latrobe Elks Golf Club.
I’ve made Deep Creek my home. The area suits my interests of golfing, boating, and hiking. I’m proud to be a part of the vision for ‘Thousand Acres’ to provide a premiere golf experience for the new or seasoned golfer.
