Troon selected to manage Knollwood CC

Troon, the world’s largest golf management company, has been selected to manage Knollwood Country Club in Elmsford, New York.

Knollwood Country Club is located in renowned Westchester County. The club dates back to 1894 when it was founded. Knollwood was one of the first 15 clubs to join the USGA and iconic golfers frequented the club, including Francis Ouimet and Bobby Jones. The original golf course was designed by Lawrence Van Etten and opened in the summer of 1895. In 1926, a combination of A.W. Tillinghast and Seth Raynor redesigned the course, added approximately 1,000 yards in length and added a 19th hole that not only takes golfers back to the clubhouse, but also serves as a perfect way to settle wagers. The present-day course plays 6,500 yards from the championship tees. 

“Knollwood Country Club has a rich history, from the course to its members to the notable tournaments that have been played there,” said Jim McLaughlin, senior vice president, Troon Privé Operations. “We’re honored to be chosen to manage Knollwood and will look to build upon the club’s incredible past.”

Club amenities include a clubhouse with three dining options — the traditional Grill Room, the Main Dining Room and the Turnesa Room. Family-friendly amenities include a fitness center, a swimming pool complex featuring a five lane pool with a meter diving board, a kiddie pool and playground area and a pool area snack bar. 

“Selecting Troon to manage Knollwood made perfect sense,” said Nick Greto, Knollwood Country Club’s president, board of directors. “The company has a proven track record of managing world-class private clubs. We’re very excited to welcome them on board.”

Headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., Troon is the world’s largest golf management company, with more than 250 golf courses in its portfolio. Also specializing in homeowner association management, private residence clubs, estate management and associated hospitality venues, the company oversees operations at Troon Golf, Honours Golf and Troon Privé properties located in 38 states and 31 countries.
