Scottsdale, AZ — With the conviction that a solid marketing effort is critical to the success and profitability of each and every golf facility, Crittenden’s Golf Inc. announced its inaugural Marketing Excellence Awards. Handing out honors at its recent annual conference and show in Las Vegas, NV, Golf Inc. recognized the best efforts over the past year in marketing and promoting golf courses and golf-related companies.

Troon Golf®, the world leader in luxury golf development, management, and marketing, garnered the top prize in the category of Large Collateral Materials; and was a nominee in the print advertising category.

The award winning entry, a handsomely bound 9″ x 12.5″ booklet titled Experience Troon Golf, presents the company to potential clients and partners. The elegant graphics and text introduce the associates who drive the Troon Golf mission to create “extraordinary experiences at the greatest golf properties in the world by providing superior service, amenities and playing surfaces.” Exquisite color photography of many of the heralded Troon Golf properties augments descriptions of the Troon Golf philosophy and proprietary management plan that connects each operational area to the overall mission — from Agronomy to Food and Beverage; Design and Development to Sales and Marketing.
