Scottsdale, Ariz. (February 6, 2020) – Mystic Creek Golf Club in El Dorado, Arkansas recently welcomed Stuart Pierce as the club’s new general manager/director of golf. Recognized as the No. 1 “Golf Course You Can Play in Arkansas” by Golfweek in 2019, Mystic Creek is an 18-hole, Kenneth Dye, Jr-designed course managed by Troon’s Honours Golf division.
Pierce is a 25-year member of the PGA of America and a 30-year veteran of the golf industry. Throughout his career Pierce has served in leadership roles at many fine clubs, including membership director at a private club in Atlanta, director of golf at the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Florida and head golf professional at Spyglass Hill Golf Course in Monterrey, California. Pierce returns to the Honours Golf/Troon family after a few years away, having previously served as a general manager at an Honours Golf-managed club in Alabama.
“We’re proud to welcome Stuart to Mystic Creek and have him lead our golf operations,” said Matt Hurley, president, Honours Golf. “As we begin work on a spectacular new clubhouse at Mystic Creek and improve upon an already pristine golf experience, Stuart is the perfect person to lead the Mystic Creek team.”
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Pierce started playing golf with his father when he was six at Dallas Country Club. Though he loves the game, his true passion in life is fly fishing. He is excited to be able to frequent the rivers of North Arkansas where he has had the pleasure of fishing years before.
Open since May 2013, Mystic Creek Golf Club is nestled among the cathedral pines of southern central Arkansas. Just after opening in 2013, the semi-private course was named one of the “Best New Courses” by Golf Digest. With impeccable course conditions and outstanding service, Mystic Creek continues to be recognized as the regions premier course. A new clubhouse will open at Mystic Creek in 2020 adding high-quality food, beverage and function options for a multitude of events to the already remarkable property.
