Troon adds private Kentucky club to portfolio

Troon will manage daily operations at Hunting Creek Country Club just east of Louisville, Ky., the world’s largest golf management company recently announced.

Troon Privé, the private-club operations wing of Troon, will manage the club and help oversee a recently approved multi-million dollar upgrade to the 25,000 square foot clubhouse and surrounding grounds.

Troon manages more than 430 courses around the world with its acquisition of OB Sports earlier this month.

Hunting Creek opened in 1964, with the initial track designed by club member Ben Wihry. The course was updated by Arthur Hills in 1989, with a full renovation by Spencer Holt in 2010.

The club became member-owned in 1972 when the members purchased it from the founding partners, V.V. Cooke and Paul Semonin. The club includes a tennis center with six clay courts and one hard court, a swimming pool, and a 24/7 fitness center.
