Scottsdale, Ariz. (October 1, 2019) – Troon®, the leader in club management, development and marketing, has introduced a new Patriot Troon Card exclusively for active duty, reserve and retired U.S. military. The Patriot Troon Card gives military heroes the opportunity to save up to 50 percent on golf fees at Troon-managed and brand-affiliated facilities around the world.
The Patriot Troon Card is in addition to the company’s existing Troon’s Troops initiative, a free program which provides discounts on golf and rental equipment to active duty U.S. military and severely injured U.S. combat veterans.
“The new Patriot Troon Card is an extension of the popular Troon Card program and is an expansion of our Troon’s Troops initiative,” said Dolf May, vice president, sales and marketing, Troon. “Patriot Troon Cards are available for purchase to ALL active duty, reserve and retired U.S. military and can be used at participating Troon-managed courses worldwide.”
The Patriot Troon Card offers the same benefits as a National Troon TwoSome Card, including up to 50 percent off the standard rate for the Cardholder and a guest at ALL participating Troon-managed and brand-affiliated courses, but is offered at a 58 percent savings over the National Troon TwoSome Card. The Patriot Troon Card can be purchased for $249 by visiting www.TroonCard.com, with a portion of the sale of each Patriot Troon Card benefitting the Folds of Honor Foundation. The mission of Folds of Honor is to provide post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled in the line of duty. Those interested in purchasing a Patriot Troon Card will be required to register (free of charge) through the Sheer ID military service verification program.
In 2020, more than 125 courses are participating in the industry-leading Troon Card program (up from 112 courses in 2019). Troon Card and Patriot Troon Card Cardholders can reserve tee times within three-days of their desired date of play and enjoy up to 50 percent off golf fees. For those who can’t wait until three days out to book their tee time, with Troon Card’s Best Rate Guarantee, Troon Card and Patriot Troon Card Cardholders can book any online rate and still receive 15 percent off their golf fees at check in. The benefits of being a Cardholder go beyond savings on golf. Troon Card and Patriot Troon Card Cardholders can improve their golf games by participating in complimentary clinics, play more golf with exclusive replay rates and explore the world of Troon with customized experience packages. Cardholders can also treat their friends, and themselves, to “2 for 1” golf offers and can celebrate their birthday in style with “birthday round” discounts. Plus, throughout 2020, Troon will host quarterly appreciation events for top-spending Cardholders.
Additional Troon Card and Patriot Troon Card benefits include the Troon Card Facebook Group and Text Club, which provides instant news and special offers exclusively to Cardholders, 10 percent off merchandise at participating golf shops and golf course restaurants, Troon Card E-News with monthly special offers and the ability to book tee times online at www.TroonCardTeeTimes.com.
