2. A Loyalty Program to Love:

The Troon Rewards program is considered one of the best golf loyalty programs. You can earn points with every green fee, lesson, or merchandise purchase, and redeem those points for complimentary rewards/rounds of golf. The more you play, the more benefits you will receive, making it a great way to reward yourself for your love of golf.

3. Love Golf After Dark:

Night Golf is a fun and unique way to experience the game in a different light. When the sun goes down and the lights come on, you can enjoy a whole new dimension of the game. Perfect for those hot summer days when you want to play after dark. Many Troon locations internationally offer night golf; think The Track and Meydan, Montgomerie Golf Club, Dubai, and more. The trend is also taking to the United States, from Angel Park Golf Club in Las Vegas to night practice experiences and golf entertainment centers like Golffinity, and GolfZon Social

4. Love Iconic Views:

One of the best things about golf is the iconic views from the tee box. Troon offers an array of amazing views from around the world, from the Burj Khalifa visible from Dubai Hills Golf Course, to the breathtaking Mediterranean sunsets at Costa Navarino, to the cascading 18th fairway of the Plantation Course at Kapalua, to the iconic oceanfront views of Monarch Beach Golf Links in California and the cliff side holes of Princeville Makai Golf Club on Kauai
