Troon, headquartered in Scotsdale, Arizona has been selected to manage the award winning Belfair Plantation, a private golf club community in Bluffton, South Carolina. Troon is the leader in golf course management, development and marketing, and its Troon Prive’, the private club operations division managing over 70 private clubs, will administer the golf facility as well as the community’s property owners association.
Approximately 1,100 acres in size, Belfair is located on the mainland off of Highway 278 about five miles from Hilton Head Island and a short drive to historic Savannah, Georgia. The club features two championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio that exemplify the “Low Country beauty” of the area. The West Course opened in 1996 with Links Magazine proclaiming it “…the finest set of golf holes in the Low Country, if not on the East Coast.” In 1999, the East Course opened and is reminiscent of the links courses of Scotland while showcasing the area’s fresh water lakes, lagoons and views. Golfweek Magazine ranked both layouts among the “Best Residential Courses” in the United States in the 2017 rankings.
“Belfair is a special place-the golf, the community and the amenities are all world class,” said Bruce Glasco, Executive Vice President and COO, Troon. “It’s one of the iconic clubs and communities on the East Coast. We are honored to be associated with such a wonderful club and look forward to working with the members of Belfair as we help enhance an already incredible property.”
In addition to the Audubon International Certified Sanctuary golf, other amenities at Belfair include a world-class 29 acre golf learning center, a stunning clubhouse overlooking the Colleton River and a 9,200 sq. ft. state-of-the-art athletic center with certified personal training, two pools, tennis courts, spa services and poolside dining. The club offers superb dining options: the 1811 Grille; Veranda al freso Dining; and the Oaks fine Dining Room. In addition to the existing amenities, the members recently approved the addition of an outdoor dining area and lounge at the existing Clubhouse and a new multi-purpose fitness campus with pool, fitness equipment, a cafe and meeting space. Construction is expected to begin in 2018.
“We elected to partner with Troon Prive’ to accelerate our pace of being the premier choice for home buyers in the Low Country and to significantly elevate our membership experience,” said Frank Farese, board president, Belfair Property Owners Association. “As the platinum management company in the industry, Troon is perfectly aligned with our vision to be the best. In a matter of days, Troon has assembled a tremendous leadership team and a visionary general manager who will distance Belfair from similar communities. Their vast array of resources is simply incredible.” Visit Belfair1811.com for more information or call 843-757-0701.
