London, England: Troon has signed an agreement to help develop and manage the exciting new golf development at Rossington Hall in the northern English county of Yorkshire.
Under the guidance of the Asian Golf Industry Federation Executive Member, the luxurious Rossington Hall, which sits within 250 acres, has grand ambitions of joining Europe’s elite golfing destinations as a European Tour host venue.
Located in the heart of Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Rossington Hall, already an established wedding, dining and events venue, will feature an 18-hole championship golf course with adjacent nine-hole academy course, each designed by Neil Coles. Situated within the estate, which housed the original Hall in the 18th century, the course will feature an accompanying clubhouse and leisure facilities in a manner that will pay homage to its Victorian heritage.
The venue joins an illustrious list of award-winning golf properties in the Troon portfolio in the EMEA region that includes the likes of The Grove, England; Chateau d’Augerville, France; Abu Dhabi Golf Club, Abu Dhabi; Lofoten Links, Norway; and The Els Club Dubai.
“We are thrilled to add Rossington Hall’s golf development to our collection of courses in the UK and look forward to delivering the exceptional golf experiences that Troon has become renowned for in the years to come,” said Jon Schauder, Director of Business Development, Troon EMEA.
“This is an exciting era for Rossington Hall, the community and all of its partners; sitting squarely in an established golf and leisure market, it has all the necessary stakeholders to make it a resounding success. For Troon, with golf and tournament golf playing such a central role in the venue’s extensive redevelopment plan, it represents our continued alignment with those who will take our sport forward in the coming years.”
The new golf development forms part of an extensive restoration programme put in place by the current owners since 2011. Seven existing bedrooms, each decorated to reflect the history of the Hall, feature the perfect blend of Victorian elegance and modern luxury. Further expansion is due to take place at the stately home, which will deliver additional hotel rooms and further dining facilities, from its numerous state rooms.
“With the proven track record and business credentials of both the European Tour and Troon Golf, we couldn’t be better placed to create an unparalleled golf experience here at Rossington Hall,” said Gary Gee, owner of Rossington Hall on behalf of Rossingtton Hall Golf Developments Ltd.
“We are pleased to have both of them as part of the team. Troon are renowned for delivering world-class golf facilities accustomed to hosting leading golf tour events week-in, week-out – whether on the European Tour, PGA Tour or their affiliates. Troon understand the aims and goals of our facility, we look forward to working with them closely in the development of Rossington Hall and welcoming golfers as soon as possible.”
