As we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Troon, we are thrilled to bring you this special edition of Troon Golf & Travel to commemorate the occasion!
From this issue you’ll gain insight into some of the early days of Troon during the opening our first golf course in 1990 – Troon North Golf Club in Arizona. You’ll hear from Jeff Spangler, Scott Heideman, and Ron Despain, who were among those who strongly influenced Troon during those times and who are still with the company and shaping our culture today. We also share how adapting to change has been a key to our company’s success in an industry that is constantly shifting.
From our beginnings at Troon North 25 years ago, our portfolio has expanded to more than 250 courses. We are proud to have grown to become the world’s largest upscale golf management company, with highly acclaimed daily-fee and resort properties making up our Troon Golf division and distinguished private clubs in our Troon Privé division. And with our acquisition of Honours Golf late last year, we are pleased to welcome that brand into the Troon family with 16 courses located across the Southeastern United States.
As we take a moment to look back and appreciate the success of our first 25 years, we also look forward to the exciting years ahead as we continue to expand the Troon Golf Experience at even more locations across the globe. Thank you for your support.
Dana Garmany, Chairman and CEO, Troon
