Troon,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Westchester Hills Golf Club, a prestigious member-owned private club located in White Plains, N.Y.
With a rich history dating back to 1913, Westchester Hills features 18 holes of championship golf designed by Peter Clark. His Donald Ross-inspired design features tree-lined fairways, rolling hills and contoured greens bordered by challenging bunkers. Westchester Hills’ historic clubhouse, originally built in 1926, is currently undergoing a major renovation. Improvements will add to the amenities of the club, which include well-equipped tennis and swimming facilities.
“Westchester Hills Golf Club is truly a historic facility that is embarking on an exciting new path of discovery and restoration,” stated Jim McLaughlin, senior vice president, Troon Privé. “We are honored to have been selected by them and are confident that our management practices combined with the club’s vision for the future will result in extraordinary guest and member experiences.”
Westchester Hills is known for its unique spirit of camaraderie and lasting friendships. With an identity rooted in the game of golf, its influence goes well beyond the golf course and extends throughout the community. Long considered a family-oriented club, generations of members have enjoyed not only excellent golf programs, but a wide range of lifestyle activities. Starting with its renowned junior golf program along with men’s and women’s leagues, members at Westchester Hills also enjoy outstanding swimming and tennis programs. For nearly a century, Westchester Hills has brought friends and families together to enjoy fun and fulfilling life experiences as a community.
"These are exciting times at ‘The Hills’ as we have made our great club even better,” said Michael J. Daly, president of the board of governors of Westchester Hills Golf Club. “By virtue of our being part of the Troon Privé organization, Westchester Hills Golf Club is now a member of an elite group of golf clubs in the United States.”
