Troon selected to manage Tennessee's Clarksville Country Club

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Clarksville Country Club, located in Clarksville, Tenn. just 40 miles northwest of Nashville.

Nestled amongst the rolling hills of middle Tennessee, and shaded by the region's mighty oak and blooming dogwood trees, sits Clarksville Country Club as a fixture of the Clarksville community. Its 18-hole, par 72 golf course has earned nationwide respect, hosting both Tennessee Golf Association tournaments and United States Golf Association qualifier events. Golf at Clarksville Country Club is always a unique and entertaining experience, providing an ideal escape from the bustling city. Portions of the course line the clay banks of the Red River, featuring rolling hills, undulating topography, testing greens, and tree-lined fairways.

"Clarksville Country Club is an exciting addition to our portfolio," said John Easterbrook, executive vice president of operations, Troon. "We are confident that combining the club's amenities and charming character with the skill and expertise of Troon Prive, our private club operations division, will result in an extraordinary experience for members and guests."

Dedicated to consistently providing members, their families, and guests with unparalleled service and superior experiences, Clarksville Country Club continually strives to offer the Clarksville area an ideal home away from home. Established in 1913, Clarksville Country Club has long been a venue for golf activities and social gatherings. Its pristine course and charming clubhouse make any golf outing and social event a truly memorable occasion. The club also features a driving range open year-around with a large practice green and bunker and short-game training area; five exceptional dining facilities, three of which offer exquisite views of the course; fitness room, lounging and leisure pool with adjacent, fully-functional pool house; and two hard-surface tennis courts.

"Our goal has always been to deliver premium hospitality to our members, and serve as an integral part of our community," says Board Chairman John Manning. "After a comprehensive and exhaustive investigation, it became clear that hiring Troon Prive would give Clarksville Country Club the best chance of success for improving our member experience, while simultaneously ensuring a vibrant future."
