Troon selected to manage North Carolina's Skybrook Golf Club

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Skybrook Golf Club, located in Huntersville, N.C., and considered one of the Charlotte area's best golf courses.

Beckoning golfers with beautiful rolling fairways and incredibly scenic views, this spectacular golf course, designed by award-winning golf course architect John LaFoy, winds through the desirable Skybrook neighborhood. From the championship tees, the course covers more than 7,000 yards of remarkably mountain-like terrain. The par 72 layout offers six sets of tees with dramatic elevation changes and generous landing areas that provide a friendly yet challenging experience.

"Skybrook Golf Club is an exciting addition to our portfolio," said John Easterbrook, executive vice president of operations, Troon. "We are confident that by combining the club's amenities with our expertise and management practices we will contribute positively to the overall experience found at Skybrook."

Many consider the clubhouse as the "high point" of the neighborhood as it literally sits on one of the highest elevations in Charlotte-Mecklenburg County. The restaurant and bar accompanied by scenic views from the veranda overlooking the golf course provides members and guests with the complete experience.

"We're really impressed with Troon and its leadership," said longtime member Ralph Brittain. "You can already see the positive changes taking place."

Likewise, member Ron Rose added, "We're excited that Troon is on board. It's a step in the right direction for Skybrook."

The Skybrook Swim and Racquet Club offers resort-style living 365 days a year. The community uniquely features four pools and a thrilling 185-foot waterslide. Skybrook's year-round tennis program takes place on six lighted tennis courts with four clay and two hard court surfaces.
