In staying in the vein of hosting events, congrats to our Troon International team on hosting a number of professional events last week and best of luck to Tiburón Golf Club  on what will be an exciting three event stretch of hosting events. Both recaps and “what’s to come” is detailed as follows:

Madinaty Golf Club in Cairo, Egypt, hosted the Asian Tour this past weekend and it looked stunning on television. Many of the Tour players visited the Giza Pyramids…what a cool of a bucket list experience. Hats off to Josh North, Will Righton, the entire Madinaty – Troon International team and ownership TMG,  on hosting the first professional event in over a decade in Egypt, and the first Asian Tour event in the country. The event was won by Andy Ogletree with a three round total of -15 over Bernd Wiesberger.

Staying International, Royal Greens Golf & Country Club hosted yet another tour event. This time the Aramco Team Series finale on the Ladies European Tour visited this stunning Troon International locale. Once again a huge congratulations to the team at Royal Greens for delivering tournament conditions, led by GM Saaed and Superintendent Gabriel. Team Garcia was victorious while 16 year old Chiara Noja won the individual event beating Charley Hull in a playoff. Well done to all involved.

And for those that might not yet have seen the press release that dropped today,  Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples begins an incredible run this week of hosting three professional golf events over a four-month stretch. Tiburón is the only golf facility in the world to host LPGA Tour, PGA TOUR Champions and PGA TOUR-sanctioned tournaments. The LPGA Tour’s season-ending CME Group Tour Championship will be played this week (November 17 – 20, 2022), followed by the QBE Shootout, a PGA TOUR Challenge Event, December 7 – 11, 2022 (that has an exciting field which includes Team Troon member Matt Kuchar). After a two-month break, Tiburón will then play host to the PGA TOUR Champions’ Chubb Classic presented by SERVPRO, February 13 – 19, 2023. The latter of which will have Team Troon member Colin Montgomerie and his all Troon bag in the field.
