Tobacco Road chooses Troon as New Management Company
By Dave Daubert
Tobacco Road Golf Club, located in the sand hills of North Carolina, announced they have chosen Troon, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, to manage the golf operations, agronomy, food and beverage, retail, sales and marketing for the award-winning property about 25 miles from Pinehurst.
Tobacco Road, one of golf course designer Mike Strantz's remarkable layouts, was built on land tended by the weather-worn hands of tobacco farmers, later shaped and moved through mining and sand excavation before finally being crafted and molded by Mike's artistic imagination and revolutionary eye. Established in 1988, the par 71, 6,557-yard design has been described as a master class in decision-making and composition. The course is currently #45 on Golf Digest's ranking of America's 100 Greatest Public Courses and listed among Golfweek's Best Courses 'You Can Play' i the U.S. for 2023.
"After thoroughly evaluating our options for the management of Tobacco Road, we are excited to select Troon as the new steward of Mike Strantz's uncompromising design," said Tobacco Road Golf Club Founder Mark Stewart.
In addition to its incredible golf course, Tobacco Road has a beautiful clubhouse with a well-appointed golf shop and a snack bar. Practice facilities include a full-size driving range, chipping area, and putting green.
"Troon is proud and honored to partner with Tobacco Road and Founder Mark Stewart," said Dana Schultz, Director of Operations, Troon. "This Top 100 golf course has been a successful family-run operation for decades. We look forward to carrying on the Stewart family vision and welcoming golfers to Tobacco Road Golf Club."
