Troon announces the appointment of Simon Doyle as its new vice president of agronomy for the international division, following his promotion from director of agronomy, Troon international Europe region.

According to Troon, Simon’s 20 years with the company and his ongoing and strong client relationships were a key reason for his promotion, along with his demonstrable impact in helping Troon International develop and improve its assets in Europe, particularly in Germany and Switzerland.

“I am delighted to work for such a great company and alongside a talented group of individuals,” Doyle said. “I joined Troon 20 years ago because I knew their reputation for agronomy and wanted to be part of that. There is nothing more satisfying than being part of creating great golf course conditions.”

As the new vice president of agronomy within Troon International, Simon will be tasked with ensuring that the organization is aligned with as many golf courses as possible that share similar beliefs and objectives.

Prior to joining Troon, Doyle received a Higher National Diploma in golf course management from Reaseheath College in the U.K. before progressing to the Ohio State University.

Following his education, he took up posts at Westchester CC and Oak Hill CC in New York. In 2000, Doyle moved to Japan where he worked as a consulting agronomist for U.S.-based firm Environmental Turfgrass Systems.

Doyle joined Troon in 2002 and was seconded to Goldman Sachs in Japan as part of a team to oversee the management of Goldman’s golf company, Accordia Golf. This led to him taking the position of asset manager for the same group of courses and subsequent acquisitions by Goldman.

“I’m proud to support Simon and his promotion to the position of vice president of science and agronomy of Troon’s International Division,” said Dave Nicholls, senior vice president of science and agronomy. “Simon’s 20 years of service in Asia and Europe helped Troon develop an industry leading set of proprietary agronomic standards that are now applied all-over the world. His personality and work ethic make him a critical part of Troon’s global success and I look forward to watching Simon grow in his recently expanded role.”
