(July 25, 2023) – Troon®, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, is pleased to announce that 61 of its brand-affiliated courses were recently named to Golfweek’s 2023 Best Courses lists. A total of 48 daily-fee/resort properties appear on Golfweek’s 2023 “Best Courses You Can Play, State-by-State” list, while 13 private clubs were named to the “Best Private Courses, State-by-State” ranking.  In addition, 11 Troon-affiliated courses appear on Golfweek’s prestigious “Top 100 Best Courses You Can Play” ranking, while seven are on the “Top 200 Modern Courses” list. Two Troon-affiliated courses are the top public course in their respective states, including Mystic Creek Golf Club in El Dorado, Arkansas and Giant’s Ridge (Quarry Course) in Biwabik, Minnesota.

Golfweek’s elite team of more than 850 course evaluators determine the annual selection of the country’s best public and private layouts. Each year, the raters survey over 3,600 facilities, grading each following Golfweek’s 10 strict evaluation standards. The magazine then ranks the best classic, modern, resort and residential courses nationally as well as the best private and public courses in each state.

“Congratulations to all of the courses recognized in these esteemed rankings,” said Troon Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Kris Strauss. ”The rankings are a credit to the associates who work tirelessly each and every day, as well as ownership at each of these stunning locales who are dedicated to delivering these ‘Top 100’ experiences.”
