Troon acquires Green Golf Partners

Green Golf Partners

Troon announced April 30 that it has purchased Green Golf Partners, adding 18 more courses to its management portfolio.

The Indianapolis-based Green Golf Partners manages daily operations at 16 facilities in Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Florida, with all but two of those clustered in the Midwest. Green Golf Partners was founded in 2001, with Matt McIntee serving as CEO.

Tim Schantz, president and CEO of Troon, said the Green acquisition will allow Troon to pursue new opportunities in the Midwest:

“We are thrilled to bring Green Golf Partners into the Troon family. Matt McIntee and his team have created a solid portfolio of courses in the Midwest and Florida. The addition of Green Golf Partners, combined with Troon’s existing portfolio in the Midwest, will serve as the catalyst to opening a new Troon office in Chicago, designed to service current and future clients throughout the region.”

The Green Golf Partners acquisition follows the April 1 purchase of OB Sports, which has a strong presence in the Pacific Northwest. While OB will continue operations as a Troon subsidiary, Kris Strauss, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Troon, said the long-term details of the Green Golf Partners deal are still being worked out, but for now clients will see no immediate changes.

“GGP contracts, and its relationships with clients and associates at the golf course level will remain the same. The same management teams at GGP will continue to support GGP courses and clients,” he said. “However, where appropriate and beneficial, we will explore the added benefits, expertise and capabilities that Troon may be able to bring to the relationship.”

Troon is the world’s largest golf management company, and with the addition of Green Golf Group now manages more than 475 golf courses around the world.
