SCOTTS­DALE, AZ – Troon North Golf Club’s award-win­ning Mon­u­ment course re­opened for daily-fee play this past Oc­to­ber 7th, fol­low­ing a four-month en­hance­ment project. Lo­cated in Scotts­dale, AZ, Troon North fea­tures two 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-de­signed golf cour­ses – Mon­u­ment and Pin­na­cle.

Course en­hance­ments in­cluded up­dat­ing green com­plexes to their orig­i­nal shape, size and con­tours by uti­liz­ing GPS co­or­di­nates gath­ered from Weiskopf’s orig­i­nal de­sign. In ad­di­tion, greens were resur­faced with creep­ing A4 bent grass and col­lars were resur­faced with TifGrand semi-dwarf Ber­muda grass. Bunker ren­o­va­tions in­cluded up­dat­ing the drainage in all green­side and fairway bunkers, new bunker lin­ers and new Pi­o­neer bunker sand. Troon’s Vice Pres­i­dent of Golf Course De­vel­op­ment Ron De­s­pain over­saw the project and work was per­formed by the club’s agron­omy team led by Se­nior Agron­o­mist Brad An­der­son.

“The green and bunker changes on Mon­u­ment have fur­ther el­e­vated an al­ready tremen­dous golf course,” said Mitch Har­rell, pres­i­dent, Troon Golf. “By proac­tively im­prov­ing and rein­vest­ing, we are wholly com­mit­ted to main­tain­ing Troon North’s stand­ing as one of the top daily-fee fa­cil­i­ties in the world. To that end, we will be ex­e­cut­ing a sim­i­lar im­prove­ment project on the Pin­na­cle course dur­ing the sum­mer of 2018.”
