Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon-managed golf properties around the world are continuing a four-out-of-five-week run of hosting five professional golf events for the PGA Tour, Ladies European Tour, Tour and the European Tour.
Following the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua Golf’s Plantation Course in Maui, Hawaii, the Ladies European Tour stopped at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club in United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open.
While the Tour played The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic (January 13-16) at Sandals Emerald Bay in the Bahamas, the men’s European Tour is stopping at Abu Dhabi Golf Club in the UAE for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship (January 16-19).
In two weeks, the European Tour will again tee it up at a Troon-managed property, this time at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club for the Saudi International (January 31-February 3) in Saudi Arabia.
Kapalua Golf’s Plantation Course hosted the Sentry Tournament of Champions in the first week of January with Xander Schauffele shooting 11-under-par 62 in the final round to finish on 23-under, one shot ahead of Gary Woodland.

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club hosted the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open, a unique 54-hole pro-am format tournament. The 2016 tournament champion Beth Allen returned along with one of the highest-quality fields the Gary Player-designed golf course has welcomed, including Cheyenne Woods, Aditi Ashok and Charley Hull.
Sandals Emerald Bay hosted The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic in the season-opening event on the Tour. Many of golf’s best up-and-comers teed-it-up on the beautiful Greg Norman-designed golf course.
Abu Dhabi Golf Club will host the 14th edition of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA. The famous Falcon Clubhouse is welcoming US superstars Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, while defending champion and European Ryder Cup hero Tommy Fleetwood is looking for his third consecutive tournament title.
Royal Green Golf & Country Club will host the inaugural Saudi International. Johnson, Patrick Reed, Paul Casey and Thomas Bjørn are just a few of golf’s international stars who will play the course designed by European Golf Design.
“Holding as many professional golf events as we do at our managed courses, it is truly a credit to the hard-working associates we have at Troon and the dedication our owners/clients have to creating championship events,” said Tim Schantz, President, Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
He added: “From our dedicated agronomy teams who deliver Tour-quality conditions day-in and day-out at all of our Troon facilities, to our talented golf operations, food and beverage and sales teams, hosting successful, well-run and large-scale events is part of what we do.”
In total, there are 17 professional golf events across nine professional Tours held at Troon-managed or affiliated facilities around the world. Including high-level amateur events and qualifying tournaments, Troon-managed facilities host more than 30 elite events.
