Troon Set to Elevate Saddlebrook Experience

Saddlebrook Golf and Tennis Resort.

Tampa, Florida, United States: Troon has been selected to manage Saddlebrook Golf and Tennis Resort.

Troon will oversee golf operations and membership sales and marketing for the 480-acre property in Wesley Chapel, near Tampa.

Mast Capital, a Miami-based real estate investor and developer, recently purchased Saddlebrook Golf and Tennis Resort and will soon, together with partner Amzak Capital Management, make a significant capital investment to transform and update the property, including renovations to the resort and golf courses.

The resort rests on rolling terrain surrounded by lagoons and cypress trees, and was purposely planned as a car-free walking village, ensuring guests can easily walk throughout the entire resort.

The resort’s 500 suites are clustered around nine courtyards complete with gardens, stone benches, stone paver walkways, and native Florida landscaping. HEI Hotels is managing the resort and food and beverage operation at Saddlebrook.

“We are excited to partner with Troon at Saddlebrook,” said Jordan Kornberg, Mast Capital’s Managing Director.

“We plan to make a significant investment to renovate the resort, with improvements to the golf and tennis experience being an important focus. Our goal is to restore the grandeur of Saddlebrook,” he added.

Saddlebrook Golf and Tennis Resort offers a host of amenities, including two Arnold Palmer-designed golf courses – the Palmer and Saddlebrook courses.

“We are honoured to be selected to manage Saddlebrook Resort and look forward to working with Mast, Amzak, and HEI,” said Zack Vervaecke, Director of Operations at Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“We will be diligently working to improve golf course conditions, service levels, and product offerings to elevate the experience for the membership and resort guests at the property,” added Vervaecke.
