Scottsdale, Ariz. – Troon Golf,® the world leader in luxury golf management, development and marketing, is pleased to begin its partnership with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation to oversee the new and sensational Lake of Isles Golf Club. Located near Mashantucket, Conn., the facility is currently under development and will be an added amenity to the Foxwoods Resort and Casino – the largest casino operation in the world.
Scheduled to open spring 2005, two classic-style courses by the inimitable Rees Jones promise the premier aesthetics and thoughtful challenges that have made his work renown to all golfers. Spread over 900 acres and operating from the 50,000-square-foot clubhouse, one course will serve an exclusive private membership, the other will be available to resort and daily-fee guests. Additional amenities for Lake of Isles include a Golf Academy and eight golf rental villas.
“Lake of Isles Golf Club represents a tremendous growth step as we expand our services to our customers,” states Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Council member, John Perry. “We appreciate the wide ranging expertise that Troon Golf brings to this project. Their careful management will allow many more people to enjoy the beauty and promise that we have always realized for this magnificent setting.”
The sensitive and strategic routings of both courses capture the beauty and the challenge of the 900-acre Lake of Isles. The tribal translation of Mashantucket, “much wooded land,” lends a clue to the beautiful isolated setting. Combined with Troon Golf’s consistently superior playing conditions, Lake of Isles Golf Club will serve as the dazzling new centerpiece to this distinguished resort.
“We understand why the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation holds this land in such deep reverence,” stated Troon Golf President and Chief Operating Officer, Hud Hinton. “We will conduct business at Lake of Isles in a manner that will always respect the history of the Mashantucket Pequots and the land, and ensure unique and memorable golf experiences at this sensational new club for years to come.”
