Let’s give Troon a warm, Grande Dunes welcome

We are pleased to announce that Troon, the world’s largest golf management company, has been selected to oversee our spectacular Members Club golf grounds and clubhouse as well as the luxurious Ocean Club social facility.

Troon Privé is the private club operating division of Troon and it will manage golf, club, food and beverage operations as well as golf course agronomy and membership marketing here at Grande Dunes.

“We are excited to oversee two incredible clubs at Grande Dunes,” said Matt Hurley, Troon Executive Vice President of Managed Properties East. “Our Troon Privé team looks forward to continuing the standards of exceptional service members currently enjoy and introducing new member experiences at the Members Club and the Ocean Club.”

As a Troon Privé managed club, those currently in the Members Club will be automatically enrolled in the Troon Privé Privileges program, which delivers extraordinary golf and lifestyle benefits as well as reciprocal play at any of the Troon Privé-managed private clubs around the world. That opens a world of possibility when you consider that Troon provides services to 595+ locations and 645+ golf courses worldwide.

Troon’s mission is to offer unparalleled multidisciplinary expertise in golf and hospitality.
They strive to create exceptional guest and member experiences through personalized service, consistency and uncompromising attention to detail.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Troon Privé manage the Members Club and the Ocean Club,” said Peter Kyte, Freehold Communities’ Vice President of Virginia and the Carolinas, which oversees Grande Dunes. “The team at Troon Privé has a wealth of knowledge and experience that will undoubtedly bring an elevated experience for all members.”

Kyte adds one final thought: “Troon Privé is committed to maintaining the high quality and excellent service our residents expect and they’ll do whatever it takes to help our members live inspired lives.”
