Troon,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development, and marketing, is pleased to recognize the company's 25-year anniversary in 2015.|
Since its beginnings in 1990 with the management of the iconic Troon North Golf Club, the company has grown to become the industry leader with more than 250 managed courses in 36 states and 27 countries and with international offices in Hong Kong, South Korea, Australia, Dubai and Switzerland. Troon has successfully captured a dominant niche within golf and hospitality, creating partnerships with other industry leaders including Greg Norman’s Great White Shark Enterprises and its current capital and strategic partner, Kohlberg & Company.
Major accomplishments in Troon's history include its first international expansion into Australia in 1998, along with its involvement with Turnberry Resort in Scotland the same year. Troon's international growth continued from that point expanding from 10 domestic facilities to more than 100 by 2007, reaching into parts of Europe, Middle East, and Asia. International expansion continued into Russia and Africa along with parts of North and South America to bring the company where it stands today as the world's largest third-party golf management company with more than 10,000 employees.
After the recent transaction with Great White Shark Enterprises and Kohlberg & Company, new capital has been infused into Troon, positioning the company for accelerated growth in the golf and hospitality industry. In late 2014, Troon acquired Honours Golf, the premier golf management company in the Southeastern United States. The acquisition added 16 golf courses to the Troon portfolio, located across Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and North Carolina.
Troon's expertise has grown to span across multiple areas of hospitality, taking its proven services to achieve success in homeowner association management, private residence clubs, estate management and associated hospitality venues.
