Troon, the leader in golf course management, development and marketing has been selected to manage the Champion Hills Club, a private golf club in Hendersonville, North Carolina. Set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Champion Hills is a member owned Club and will be managed by Troon Prive’, the private club operating division. Although the club and Property Owners Association are separate entities, the club’s general manager will have oversight over both business operations.
The Champion Hills Club is the centerpiece of the 730-acre residential community, and Dana Schultz, a 19-year Troon veteran, has recently been named as the club’s general manager. Set at an elevation of 2,500 to 3,000 feet, the Tom Fazio-designed, 18-hole, par 71 golf course opened for play in 1991 and is ranked by Golf Digest as one of the top private courses in North Carolina. Tom Fazio and his family call Champion Hills home. Moderate temperatures allow for year-round play providing distinctive four season beauty.
“We’re honored to be working with a club community that is so well-regarded for its exceptional hospitality and amenities,” said Bruce Glasco, executive vice president and COO, Troon.
In addition to its award-winning golf course, Champion Hills also features a 25,000 square foot clubhouse with multiple dining options; a new fitness center with classes and personal training; two lighted Har-Tru tennis courts; a heated pool, hydro spa and sun deck; bocce ball courts; and 18 miles of marked and well-maintained walking trails.
“The proven expertise and third-party management model now being delivered by Troon Prive’ assures the Champions Hills Club that our improvements in membership growth and member satisfaction will continue, but in a more expedited and comprehensive manner,” said Randy Raup, president of the Club’s Board of Governors. “We are very pleased with the quality, professionalism and expertise of the Troon team members already supporting our club.” For more information visit ChampionHills.com.
