Scottsdale, Ariz. (April 1, 2019) – Troon®, the leader in club management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage Hunting Creek Country Club, a private club located just outside of Louisville in historic Prospect, Kentucky. Troon Privé, the private club operations division of Troon, will manage the family-friendly club.
Founded in 1964, Hunting Creek Country Club is set among the rolling hills of Kentucky on a bluff south of the Ohio River. The club offers a host of year-round amenities, including a 7,157-yard golf course originally designed by club member Ben Wihry. Holt Golf Design led a complete tee-to-green course renovation that was completed in 2010. The renovation focused on improving the routing and updating hazard locations and green slopes to accommodate the advancements in technology and golf equipment. Throughout its history, the course has hosted nearly every major tournament in the state, including the Kentucky Amateur and the Kentucky Open.
The club’s 25,000 square-foot, lodge-like clubhouse will soon be renovated as club members just approved a multi-million dollar renovation project to accommodate future growth. When complete, members will enjoy a broader range of amenities and features across the club.
“We’re excited to partner with Hunting Creek Country Club,” said Michael Ryan, vice president of operations, Troon. “The golf course and member amenities are absolutely spectacular. The Troon Privé team looks forward to working with members and further enhancing their membership experience and benefits. With the upcoming clubhouse enhancements, it’s an exciting time at Hunting Creek.”
In addition to championship-caliber golf, Hunting Creek also features seven tennis courts, including six clay and one hard court; a beautiful new swimming pool complex with adult and kiddie pools; an expansive fitness center that is open 24 hours, seven days a week; and a social calendar filled with year-round fun events and activities for the entire family.
“We are delighted to have Troon partnering with us as we return Hunting Creek Country Club to a level of prominence not seen in years,” said Hunting Creek Country Club President Tom Sanders. “We feel our membership will benefit greatly from Troon’s expertise in service and operations and could not be more excited about our new relationship.”
