Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Celebrating Black History Month

Troon is proud to celebrate Black History Month and honor the achievements of Black Americans throughout our nation’s history. While progress continues to take place across the golf industry, Troon is working to make the game more inclusive and accessible for all communities. Many Troon associates serve as role models, sharing their stories of adversity and triumph in hopes of inspiring those with diverse backgrounds to seek careers in golf, tennis and hospitality. Below are some of the thoughts from Troon Associates on what Black History Month means to them.

Supplier Diversification Program

As the global leader in golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, Troon recognizes the importance that diversity has not only in our company and how we grow the game(s), but also how we support business growth and delivering value to our clients through diversity within our industry supply chain. We recognize how diverse perspectives can generate creative ideas, products and solutions that will add value to our clients while creating new revenue opportunities for both our clients and our trusted supplier base.

To that end our Supplier Diversity program provides a pathway for diverse suppliers to add value to our product and service offerings. Our goal is to promote economic opportunities for historically disempowered groups wherever we operate.

Suppliers qualify by being at least 51 percent owned by people from an ethnic minority (as defined in each country or region), or by women, military veterans, those with disabilities or LGBT+ individuals. For consideration to be added as a diverse supplier of Troon, complete the following form. Following your submittal, your application will be reviewed by our Director of Diversity and SVP of Procurement. Official responses to supplier will be made within 30 days of submittal.

Thank you in advance for your interest in Troon. We take pride in seeking suppliers that are just as diverse as our associates, clients, members and valued guests.

DIVERSITY EQUITY AND INCLUSION COUNCIL

In late 2020 Troon formed the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council. The Council’s goal is to help facilitate the following objective: Troon desires a company-wide environment in which all associates feel valued, included, and empowered to do their best work and bring their whole selves to work each and every day. Talent (including natural abilities, character and work ethic) should be the only meaningful differentiator at the Company. The promotion of diversity, equity and inclusion is not just the right thing to do, it is the smart and profitable thing to do. Diversity of thought and talent strengthens the Company by creating an open environment where existing associates are more productive, ensuring our associates are the best and brightest by accessing and recruiting from the broadest pool of talent, and facilitating the consideration of different perspectives when solving the challenges faced by the Company, its clients and its associates.

Mission Statement

At Troon we are committed to building, fostering, and encouraging a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion that embraces the uniqueness of our communities across race, gender, age, religion, identity, cultures, ideas and experiences so that we may provide places of work and play in which all persons feel welcomed and valued.

DE&I College Internship

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council, in conjunction with the Troon recruiting team, is excited to announce the roll-out of Troon’s first official Internship Program!  Strategically aligned with Troon’s Mission Statement and Guiding Principles, this Internship Program combines hands-on learning, interactive discussions, and individual coaching to effectively educate and develop students into future Troon leaders.

These internships are designed to give students first-hand experience into the world of a golf club General Manager. Interns will rotate throughout various departments of the club, and interact with both the club GM and management team to help gain a more thorough picture of all that is involved with running a successful golf facility.

Internships will start in late spring/early summer and will last 3-6 months, depending on the intern and facility needs. Each intern will also receive a $500 monthly stipend to help offset the cost of housing (if housing is not provided). Locations include:
