Posted on May 13, 2020
Chicago, Ill. (May 13, 2020) – Green Golf Partners, a division of Troon®, the leader in club management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage GreyStone Golf Club, a daily-fee facility in Sauk Centre, Minnesota.
Located approximately 100 miles northwest of the Minneapolis/Saint Paul metropolitan area, GreyStone Golf Club features a Scottish-style, 18-hole golf course. The Tom Lehman-designed course has rolling hills, water features on nine holes, and wide fairways. The club’s Old-English-style clubhouse sits on the western edge of Big Sauk Lake and includes The Cove restaurant as well as event facilities. GreyStone is open to daily-fee play, while also offering limited membership opportunities. Members enjoy boat docking access to the clubhouse, member-only events and more.
Brock Gardner recently joined the GreyStone team as the club’s new general manager. A native Minnesotan and a lifelong golfer, Gardner has 16 years of operations experience. He possesses tremendous team-building and staff-training skills and is an excellent fit for the property.
“Everyone here at GreyStone is ecstatic to partner with the team at Troon/Green Golf Partners,” said Greg Johnson, President of the Board. “We are confident that with their years of experience in the golf business and the best practices they employ, GreyStone will continue to grow to be the best golf club offering the best service and amenities in the area.”
The addition of GreyStone represents the growth commitment of Green Golf Partners into the state of Minnesota, and Troon’s overall growth into the fabric of the Midwest. Troon recently opened a Chicago office to support its growing collection of clubs in the region.
“I grew up in the Midwest and love Sauk Centre and GreyStone,”said Matt McIntee, chief executive officer, Green Golf Partners. “GreyStone is a fabulous facility that offers great golf and more. The Cove is a cool lakeside restaurant and it is our goal to make this club the place to go in the region. We thank the Board for their confidence and pledge to meet or exceed the expectations of the patrons and area residents.”
Golfers also have the opportunity to save on golf at GreyStone Golf Club, and eight other Troon-affiliated Green Golf Partners courses in four Midwest states, through the recently introduced Midwest Troon Card. Midwest Troon Cardholders enjoy rates of up to 50 percent off, “2 for 1” golf offers, Troon’s “Best Rate Guarantee” and more.
