Princeton, New Jersey (July 30, 2018) – Troon®, the leader in golf course management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage Springdale Golf Club, a private club located adjacent to Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. Springdale Golf Club will be managed by Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon.

Nestled into the beautiful landscape and historic architecture of Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary, Springdale Golf Club was formed in 1895. The exclusive private club features an 18-hole golf course designed by Gerard Lambert dating back to 1915 and revised by William Flynn in 1926. Known for its superior conditions and playability, the walkable par-71 course is 6,380 yards from the blue tees, with a course rating of 70.5 and a slope of 131.

Springdale is proud to be the home course for Princeton University’s men’s and women’s golf teams, which exemplifies the club’s mission to deliver an exceptional golf experience to men and women alike. Springdale offers several categories of membership, including individual, family, and junior memberships.

The combination of the club recently hosting the AJGA Championship with the new management agreement with Troon Privé, have helped create a renewed sense of energy and excitement around the club. Also fueling the momentum is Princeton University’s recent extension of the club’s licensing agreement, which carries forward the collaborative relationship enjoyed for more than 120 years.

“The club’s historical significance, unique William Flynn design, and challenging greens, blended with Troon’s operational expertise, will take Springdale Golf Club to the next level in member experience and commitment to the Princeton community,” said Kevin Tylus, board president, Springdale Golf Club.

Troon Privé assumed golf and club operations at Springdale on July 1st. As part of the management agreement, Full Springdale members, from Senior Individual to Resident Family, now have access to extraordinary golf and lifestyle experience benefits around the world through Troon. This includes Troon Privé Privilege, which provides reciprocal access to other Troon Prive-managed clubs from just $35/person per round, and Troon Advantage, which offers a 60-day booking window and up to 50 percent off Troon Golf-managed resort and daily fee clubs.
