Historic Capital City Country Club Selects Honours

capital city golfHonours Golf, a division of Troon has been selected to manage Capital City Country Club, a private country club in Tallahassee, Florida, Originally opened in 1908 as The Tallahassee Country Club, Capital City has a long and storied history. In 1936, the city of Tallahassee expanded the then 9-hole course to the regulation 18-hole layout designed by famed golf course architect A. W. Tillinghast, designer of Baltusrol, Winged Foot and Bethpage Black.

Today, the 6500 yard golf course is nestled about a mile from the Capital in the residential Myers Park District with lovely rolling hills bordered by tall pines and large moss-draped oaks, making it one of the most beautiful and natural settings in the state of Florida.

“Capital City Country Club is more than a club, it’s a lifestyle,” said Club President Jay Revell. “Our club has been a cornerstone of the Tallahassee community for well over 100 years and now we are excited to work with a great new partner in Troon’s Honours Golf to take the club into a new chapter. Our members live our passion for golf and fellowship every day and we are proud to have a company that shares those values. The future of Capital City Country Club is in great hands with Honours Golf.”

Accompanying the classic “Tillie” golf course is the Capital City clubhouse, one of the largest and most elegant spaces in Tallahassee for wedding receptions, banquets and other prestigious events. Club members enjoy three Laykold(hard) courts and two Har-tru(clay) courts to enjoy tennis lighted for evening play. There is an Olympic-size swimming pool and a fitness center for members to cool-off or workout.

Members enjoy reciprocity to the great Honours managed facilities in the Southeast.

“We are delighted to be selected as the new stewards of this historic club and course,” said Bob Barrett, CEO of Honours Golf. “Tallahassee is a vibrant city and we are excited to be a partner in the community.”
