Troon has been selected to manage Old Overton Club, a private club located in Vestavia Hills, Alabama, a suburb of Birmingham. Troon Privé®, the private club operating division of Troon, will oversee golf, club, and food and beverage operations, as well golf course agronomy and membership marketing.
Established in 1993, Old Overton Club features an 18-hole Jerry Pate and Tom Fazio-designed golf course that is considered by Golf Digest and Golfweek to be one of the top five golf courses in the state. The par-71, 7,200-yard course has been described as “being cut from the rocky terrain to transcend its surroundings.”
“We are thrilled to have been selected to manage operations at Old Overton Club,” said Matt Hurley, president, Honours Golf®, a Birmingham-based division of Troon. “This Club has always been held in high regard, not only within this area, but all over the country, receiving accolades as one of the best private courses in Alabama. Our goal will be to elevate the member and guest experience even further and enjoy this new partnership well into the future.”
Old Overton Club’s 25,000-squarefoot clubhouse includes both fine and casual dining options as well as event space for member gatherings. The Tennis Pavilion at Old Overton is home to seven Hydrocourts (soft) and two hard courts. The Hydrocourts offer members the finest playing surface. The club offers a robust competitive ladies’ tennis program and a growing men’s following, while its junior program is recognized as one of the best in Alabama.
The club’s outdoor pool complex features a six-lane competitive pool, with shallow areas for younger swimmers, a separate toddler pool, and locker room facilities. The pool grill and porch areas provide members with a relaxing place to enjoy meals and mingle.
“We are very pleased to have partnered with Troon for the daily operations of our club,” said Board President Mike Tracy. “We are excited about the course renovations that have been done and look forward to future upgrades to the property. We know that Troon is the right choice to take us to the next level in the member experience.”
