Troon, will start the year off actively, by hosting a series of globally significant tournaments at three of their different facilities simultaneously.
DUBAI, UAE – Troon’s international properties are braced for the staging of multiple top tier events over the coming days. Within the next week, three Tour events will take place at three Troon International locales; with MENA Tour back-to-back events at the Madinaty Golf Club, Royal Greens Golf & Country Club will host the Asian Tour’s Saudi International tournament, as well as Al Hamra Golf Club which prepares for the second instalment of the Ras al Khaimah Championship on the DP World Tour.
As the leader in golf course management, development and marketing, Troon continues to support host facilities across agronomy, operations and marketing to ensure they have the tools in place to effectively showcase their golf courses when welcoming some of the world’s best golfers.
This week’s golf kicks off in Egypt for the Egyptian Swing competition at Madinaty Golf Club, as part of the MENA Tour featuring some of the most promising up and coming golfers from around the world. The Troon managed course is coming off the back of a historic first after hosting one of the five International Series events as part of the Asian Tour with the competition being the highest profile tournament the club has ever hosted and has since opened up multiple opportunities to host similar like events. Over the last few years, the team at Troon and Madinaty Golf Club have worked incredibly hard to transform the golf club into a prestigious golfing destination and praise must be given for the exceptional playing conditions and hospitality Madinaty has to offer, as well as being the players’ choice golf course on the Asian Tour in 2022.
Following the MENA tour event in late January, the first weekend in February sees Troon International host two tournaments on the same weekend, for the second consecutive year. The first being the PIF Saudi International powered by SoftBank Investment Advisers, which will be held for a second time on the Asian Tour at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club. The gem of the Red Sea is set to welcome a stella cast of players including recent Open champion Cameron Smith, previous two-time winner of the tournament Dustin Johnson and reigning champion Harold Varner III all vying for the $5 million purse on offer. The second is the Ras Al Khaimah Championship presented by Phoenix Capital, which will be also take place between 2nd – 5th February at Al Hamra Golf Club and forms part of the DP World Tour’s five-week “Middle East Swing”.
The Troon managed trio of Royal Greens Golf & Country Club, Al Hamra Golf Club and Madinaty Golf Club offer some of the most exceptional playing surfaces seen in the world and promise to deliver a weeks’ worth of premium golf events fit for the global scale. The week ahead is set to be a five-star experience for both players and spectators as the leading club management company in the world looks to start the year as it means to go on by showcasing its high standards of golf course management at each event.
“Troon opened the 2023 golf season in Hawaii at Kapalua with the Sentry Tournament of Champions on the PGA Tour and now Troon International kicks of its 2023 tournament calendar with three events in one week on three different professional tours. This is a testament to our unrivalled standards of quality and conditioning and the professional associates that run the day to day operations at our facilities. To be able to plan, prepare and successfully deliver multiple events in such a short time frame is testament to the innovation, dedication and above and beyond attitude our team exuberates on a day-to-day basis. We would like to congratulate and thank all of our ownerships for their visions and dedication to golf for being instrumental in bringing these Tour events to their courses. Looking ahead to the coming week, I’ve already received fantastic feedback from people arriving on the sites of our three tour venue facilities”, said Mark Chapleski, Executive Vice-President of Troon International. “For us it’s a privilege to be able to work with these fantastic golf courses who seek out our guidance to assist on the delivery of world class events. We look forward to being able to showcase these Troon venues during the upcoming events at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Jeddah, Al Hamra Golf Club in Ras Al Khaimah and Madinaty Golf Club in Cairo next month then look forward to enjoying the increase in enquiries and visitors as a result of this additional exposure.”
