Golf Industry Veteran Shapes the Troon Golf Experience In Rancho Santa Fe, CA

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Troon Golf, the world's leading luxury golf management, development, and marketing company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dan Desmond as General Manager of The Crosby National Golf Club, the luxurious private Troon Golf facility now open in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

A well-known and respected veteran and golf management professional of over 30 years, Desmond joined Troon Golf in September 2001 from his most recent position as General Manager of Red Mountain Country Club in Mesa, Arizona. Prior to that he served as General Manager of Barefoot Resort, a 72-hole golf facility in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Desmond spent several years with Club Corporation of America as Vice President of Development for a variety of high-end golf facilities throughout the United States. He is a member of the PGA of America and Club Managers Association of America.

"We are fortunate to utilize Dan's vast experience and wide range of expertise in operations at The Crosby National Golf Club," stated Troon Golf President and Chief Operating Officer, Hud Hinton. "We appreciate the level of excellence he will bring to this exquisite golf facility."

In many respects, Desmond has come home. He grew up in the San Diego area, watching the steady growth and development of the high-end enclave that became Rancho Santa Fe, before setting out on his successful career in upscale golf management.

"I have watched Troon Golf emerge over the last several years as the premier upscale golf management company, and couldn't ask for a more meaningful step in my career than to be a part of this organization," said Desmond. "The opportunity to help develop The Crosby National Golf Club into the preeminent facility in this remarkable community is undoubtedly an ultimate task."

The Crosby National Golf Club features a spectacular new golf course designed by the firm of Schmidt-Curley with assistance from PGA Tour standout, Fred Couples. In addition to championship playing conditions year round on the meticulously maintained golf course, the club offers every conceivable amenity desired by discerning club members, from fine dining to an energetic slate of social activities.
