Troon adds courses in South Korea and Arizona to its portfolio

Troon has been selected to manage two more golf clubs: Gold Hill Country Club in Seoul, South Korea, and Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Troon International will handle affairs at Gold Hill, managing development and pre-opening services, post-opening agronomy, marketing and operations services. Troon Privé will manage club operations, agronomy, food & beverage and membership marketing at Flagstaff Ranch.

In addition to the 18-hole public golf course, Gold Hill will feature a comprehensive medical resort including a general hospital, accommodation facilities for relaxation and tourist/living accommodation facilities.
