Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon is promoting May as ‘Player Development Month’ at Troon-affiliated daily-fee golf courses, private clubs and Troon Golf Academies around the world.
More than 500 introductory golf clinics, ‘Get Into Golf’ clinics and activities will be held at Troon-affiliated golf courses throughout this month with 2018 marking the seventh year that Troon has recognised May as Player Development Month.
“As stewards of the game, we have the responsibility to continue to grow the game at all levels,” said Tim Schantz, President, Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“Over the last seven years we have introduced thousands of new golfers to this wonderful game through fun, affordable and educational clinics at Troon facilities. We look to further expand our efforts in 2018 with additional clinics and instructional videos posted online,” he added.
Instructional videos as well as a complete list of May Player Development Month golf clinics and activities are available at www.troongolfacademy.com
In addition to learning more about the game of golf, participants in May Player Development Month programmes at participating Troon-affiliated facilities will receive one-week complimentary access to AMPD Golf Performance online programme (a US$50 value).
In February, Troon and Troon-managed facilities were awarded the prestigious ‘Player Development Award’ by the National Golf Course Owners’ Association (NGCOA).
The NGCOA Player Development Award is bestowed upon a course, entity or individual, which implements true and tested player development programmes, providing effective return-on-investment and an overall welcoming atmosphere for new golfers of all ages.
