Scottsdale, Ariz. – Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing takes great pleasure in recognizing several of its managed facilities featured on Golf Digest’s list of the “75 Best Golf Resorts in North America,” featured in the November 2011 issue.

The list was created using reviews from Golf Digest’s course-rating panelists, who also create the list of “America’s 100 Greatest Courses.” Raters visited hundreds of U.S., Canadian, Mexican and Caribbean golf resorts judging them on a scale of 1, being awful, to 10, being perfect. The ratings were then averaged and multiplied by 10 to come up with a score and ranking. Each resort featured on the list represents a unique combination of great golf, lodging, food and service.

Troon Golf-managed facilities recognized among the “75 Best Golf Resorts in North America” include:

No. 7 Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii
No. 8 One&Only Ocean Club, Paradise Island, Bahamas
No. 12 One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico
