Tobacco Road Opts for Troon Stewardship

The 18th hole at Tobacco Road Golf Club.

Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon has been selected to manage Tobacco Road Golf Club in the sand hills of Sanford, North Carolina.

Troon Golf, the resort and daily-fee division of Troon, will manage the golf operations, agronomy, food and beverage, retail, and sales and marketing for the award-winning property.

Located just 25 miles north of Pinehurst, Tobacco Road Golf Club was built on land tended by the weather-worn hands of tobacco farmers, later shaped and moved through mining and sand excavation before finally being crafted and moulded by an artist’s imagination and the revolutionary eye of the late golf course architect, Mike Strantz.

Established in 1998, the par-71, 6,557-yard design has been described as a master class in decision-making and composition. The course is currently 45th on Golf Digest’s ranking of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses and is listed among Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play in the US for 2023.

“Troon is proud and honoured to partner with Tobacco Road and Founder Mark Stewart,” said Dana Schultz, Director of Operations, Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“This Top 100 golf course has been a successful family-run operation for decades. We look forward to carrying on the Stewart family vision and welcoming golfers to Tobacco Road Golf Club.”

Tobacco Road Golf Club Founder Stewart said: “After thoroughly evaluating our options for management of Tobacco Road, we are excited to select Troon as the steward of Mike Strantz’s uncompromising design.”

In addition to its golf course, Tobacco Road has a beautiful clubhouse with a well-appointed golf shop and a snack bar. Practice facilities include a full-size practice range, chipping area, and putting green.
