SCOTTSDALE, AZ (June 27, 2012) — Pronghorn Golf Club & Resort, a luxury golf destination and community located in Bend, Ore., has renewed its agreement with Troon,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing.
Pronghorn first hired Troon in 2010 to oversee club operations, including its two highly acclaimed, 18-hole golf courses. The luxurious golf and lifestyle destination features an amenity-filled community and Residence Club. Its pair of championship courses brings two master course designers together for the first time with the Tom Fazio Course and the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. Both golf courses have received tremendous accolades – theNicklaus Course was voted No. 23 on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” for 2011 and the Fazio course is ranked No. 12 on Golfweek’s ranking of the “Best Residential Courses.”
“We are thrilled that Pronghorn has renewed its contract with Troon,” stated Jim McLaughlin, senior vice president, Troon Privé Operations. “Pronghorn is an exceptional golf destination that offers not only a premier private club experience, but attractive stay & play packages for the ultimate golf getaway as well. We are honored to be involved and we are confident that our professional practices will continue to positively impact the experience of Residence Club guests and club members.”
Pronghorn also recently announced that Auberge Resorts will assume management of the highly acclaimed development’s 48-suite lodge and other resort facilities, including multiple restaurants, full-service spa and more.
