Growing the game means not only expanding the enjoyment that only golf can provide, it also means a more secure and healthy industry that provides jobs and allows people to grow in their careers. Troon recognizes an opportunity to grow the game by creatively introducing golf’s many benefits to a diverse range of future players.
Included in these benefits is the advantage of a healthy and fit lifestyle. Improved personal fitness is enjoyed through active experiences on the golf course and also embraced at many of Troon’s private country clubs through tennis, swimming and health club programs.
Through several partnerships and initiatives, Troon aims to afford a greater number of people the fortune and advantages of experiencing the game of golf and to further strengthen the industry as a result.
Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club has completed a hybrid conversion of its practice facility, which now serves as a six-hole short course in the afternoon called #miniDunes and a traditional driving range during peak times of the day. The changes at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes make a major statement in the industry by taking action to make the golf experience more enjoyable for a broader range of golfers and creating an environment suited for juniors and players who are new to the game.
Troon North Golf Club has created an executive 9-hole golf course called Monument Express.
