Scottsdale, Ariz. – Troon Golf, ® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce that it has been selected to manage Oneida Golf and Country Club, one of Wisconsin’s finest private clubs. Setting the standard of fine living and exceptional golf in the city of Green Bay since 1928, Oneida is ranked as WISCONSIN’S 7th BEST GOLF COURSE by Golf Digest.
Oneida’s 18-hole, par 72 layout has been known to challenge the most skilled players and is often noted as one of the state’s toughest courses. Six years after the course opened, par had only been broken twice and it took all of 20 years for Sam Sneed’s course record of 66 to be challenged. The tree-lined course stretches to 6,700 yards from the longest tees and is surrounded by rolling hills and meandering streams, presenting players with memorable shots at every hole.
“Oneida Golf and Country Club has long been a facility known for its exceptional golf course and high operational standards,” stated Hud Hinton, president and COO, Troon Golf. “We are excited to be involved with the club and believe that our management practices will contribute positively to the experience of the members and guests.”
Oneida underwent a significant renovation project in 2003, which included reconstructing numerous bunkers and tees, lengthening several holes and rerouting the 18th fairway. In addition to the championship golf course, Oneida also offers members formal and informal dining areas, meeting rooms, locker and dressing room facilities, golf shop, full-sized swimming pool and cabana, and lighted tennis courts.
“We believe Oneida is one of the top private clubs in the Midwest,” stated Bill Plummer, president of Oneida Golf and Country Club. “Combining Troon Golf’s management expertise with our existing facilities and employee base makes all the sense in the world. Our relationship with Troon Golf will give us insight into the ‘best practices’ being utilized by other top private clubs, which will allow Oneida to stay ahead of the curve in an ever more competitive country club environment.”
