Scottsdale, Ariz. – Troon, the leader in upscale golf management, development and marketing has recently been selected to manage Alpine Country Club
in Cranston, Rhode Island. The nearly half-century old private country club dates back to 1946 and was originally called the Cranston Alpine Country Club.

Designed by golf course architect Geoffrey Cornish and building designer D. Thomas Russillo, Alpine Country Club’s golf course officially began play in 1961 with the clubhouse opening a year later on Easter Sunday. “Alpine has a rich and colorful legacy and is one of the premier country clubs in Rhode Island,” said Ryan Eckroat, interim general manager of Alpine Country Club. “It provides a wonderful lifestyle experience for individuals and families and we take a great deal of pride in the amenities that we are able to offer our membership.”

Those amenities include an 18-hole championship golf course, full driving range and practice putting green, golf shop, private men’s and women’s lockers rooms, indoor and outdoor dining, adult and children’s swimming pools. On the culinary side, Alpine is well-known locally for having an exceptional array of menu selections in each of their dining rooms. “We are truly excited to be partnering with a world-class company like Troon who will strategically improve our overall club operation and greatly enhance the lifestyle amenities we offer our members and their guests,” said Frank Connor, club president.

Alpine Country Club is also environmentally-conscious having been certified by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management. The club consistently reduces water usage, chemical usage for fertilization and pest control, energy consumption, solid waste and air emissions. ‘By going green, all of us at Alpine strive to make a positive influence on the community, by making the right decisions when it comes to the environment and to better prepare our future generations,” added Eckroat.

Over the years, Alpine Country Club has fostered strong family values as many members have had their children grow up and become members themselves. “For nearly 50 years, Alpine Country Club has been a marvelous addition to the Cranston community and all of us at Troon are excited to be able to implement our management principles, thereby providing an enhanced lifestyle experience for all of Alpine’s members and their guests,” said Rob DeMore, vice president of operations for Troon Privé, the private division of Troon Golf.
