LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort.

Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands: Troon has been selected to manage LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort in Saipan. 

Troon International will oversee golf operations, agronomy and marketing for the resort’s two beautiful 18-hole golf courses.

The picturesque golf club, nestled away on the cliffs of Saipan, boasts breathtaking Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) layouts that encompass spectacular ocean and mountain views across both the East and West Course, offering challenging and unique experiences.

The stunning coastal escape at LaoLao Bay is further enriched by top-level amenities, including a clubhouse with authentic Korean cuisine, a 54-room on-site hotel, and a sauna and massage room – combining to create a memorable experience for visitors.

The new agreement between Troon International and LaoLao Bay is a significant milestone for the resort, with the enhancement of golf course management and membership services a priority.

As part of Troon International’s remit, the aim will be to develop the resort’s marketing strategy, elevating its offering to tourists, and grow its presence as a global golf destination.

“With Troon International’s vast experience and proven track record in managing world-class golf courses, we are poised to elevate LaoLao Bay to all-new heights,” said DJ Flanders, Executive Vice President at Troon International, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“Our expertise in course management, customer service, and marketing strategy will ensure that LaoLao Bay not only meets but exceeds the expectations of golf enthusiasts globally, as it continues on its journey in becoming recognised the world over,” added Flanders.

Through this relationship, LaoLao Bay will integrate Troon programmes, including Troon Rewards, Troon Advantage and Troon Card, granting exclusive access to spectacular Troon International courses and offering its members exceptional value.

Kevin Hoang, Managing Director of LHS, said: “With Troon International’s rich experience and expertise, we are confident that the partnership between Troon International and LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort signifies a new era for the iconic course.

“This alliance is poised to enhance LaoLao Bay’s global appeal, merging Troon International’s expertise in golf management with the resort’s stunning vistas and facilities.

“As we look to the future, LaoLao Bay stands ready to welcome golfers from across the world, setting a new standard for excellence.”
