Scottsdale, AZ – Opened in 1990, Troon North Golf Club stands as Troon Golf’s flagship. Recognized as the world leader in management, development and marketing of luxury brand golf courses, Troon Golf was founded on impeccable agronomic standards and course maintenance practices that revolutionized the golf industry.
In the current edition of Golf Digest’s definitive golfers guidebook, “Places to Play 2000-2001”, which includes ratings of the top 1% public-access golf courses across the North America, Troon North’s Pinnacle Course was cited as being the “Best Conditioned Golf Course.” Troon North’s original course, The Monument, was also listed in the guidebook. “Places to Play” ratings are based on more than 20,000 ballots in which readers evaluate the overall golf experience. In routine polls conducted by Troon Golf, guests report that above value, service, and pace of play, it is the quality and condition of the golf course that they remember most.
In May 1998, GOLF Magazine became the first major golf publication to recognize golf course conditioning and maintenance as a singular category worthy of mention. In the magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play” listing, Troon North was awarded the “Best Greens” title. According to Senior Editor, Brian McCallen, “Troon North has impeccably groomed fairways and velvety smooth greens that are manicured to perfection.”
“It gives us a great deal of satisfaction that the nation’s two most recognized golf publications back up what we believe is our number one priority,” said Jeff Spangler, Troon Golf Senior Vice President, Science and Agronomy. “Our agronomic philosophy was initially researched and fine-tuned at Troon North Golf Club. It is based on 12 basic proprietary concepts of ‘sustainable agriculture’ that every Troon Golf facility must implement within its own unique management program.”
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Troon Golf represents over 50 golf courses in 11 states and 7 countries. Other prestigious Troon Golf facilities include: Turnberry Hotel, Golf Courses & Spa, Ayrshire, Scotland; The Westin La Cantera Resort, San Antonio, Texas, as well as Tidewater Golf Club & Plantation, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
