DJ Flanders, Senior VP of Operations recently visited Sri Lanka and the team at Victoria Golf Resort to check out the improvements at the facility and ongoing enhancements on the golf course. Read his travel diary from his recent trip and learn why you should be adding this location to your golf destination wish list.
Last week I had the opportunity to visit the exceptional Troon associates at Victoria Golf Resort. Over the last few years these individuals have been working extremely hard to complete a significant facility enhancement project, facilitated by the clubs new ownership – John Keells Group. The enhancement project includes an upgrade of the golf course, renovation of the existing resort including the addition of several amenities, rooms and the creation of an extremely impressive residential development.
I was able to spend time with GM, Kanchana and Superintendent, Rashika, on the golf course and see first hand the results of the ongoing work from the agronomy team. Spending time with the associates who operate a golf facility on a day-to-day basis is always an important part of my trips and a highlight of this one was sharing dinner with some of the associates.
