Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon has been selected to manage Woodland Hills Country Club, a private club located in Woodland Hills, California.
Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Asian Golf Industry Federation Executive Member Troon, will oversee golf, club and food and beverage operations as well golf course agronomy and membership marketing.
Located in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains in the west San Fernando Valley, Woodland Hills Country Club is located minutes from Los Angeles, northern Los Angeles County and east Ventura County.
With a rich history dating back to 1925, Woodland Hills features a William ‘Billy’ Bell Snr-designed course. The par-70 layout is known for quick rounds, fast greens, narrow, oak tree-lined fairways, and for being fun and easy to walk.
The course has hosted several regional and USGA sectional tournaments, including the Western Regional for the USGA Mid-Amateur Championship, qualifying for the USGA Junior Amateur Championship and qualifying for the California State Senior Amateur Championship.
“Woodland Hills is a classic golf club with a historic, fun to play course and a membership that is passionate about the game,” said Rob DeMore, President, Troon Privé. “We are honoured to be working with the members and ownership and look forward to enhancing an already incredible property.”
In addition to golf, Woodland Hills Country Club includes a 28,000 square-foot clubhouse with a main dining room, multiple event spaces, men’s and ladies locker rooms and a golf shop. Additional member amenities include a new fitness centre, massage room, indoor golf hitting bays and a kids club.
Woodland Hills has a culture rooted in the music industry with many members still actively involved and regularly contributing to the club’s member concert series.
“Troon is a recognised leader in club operations, agronomy and marketing,” said Woodland Hills Country Club Owner Ryan Ogulnick. “Troon will undoubtedly help us improve our overall club experience, while offering additional benefits to our members such as the Troon Privé Privileges programme, which provides members with access to other fine private clubs in the Troon Privé portfolio.”
