Charitable events and tournaments at Troon facilities throughout the United States raised more than $12,609,533 for charities in 2014.

Examples of national events in 2014 include Patriot Golf Day, World’s Largest Golf Outing, Troon Drives H.O.P.E. and Els For Autism. Local and regional events included fundraising programs for local hospitals, such as the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s annual golf event at Troon North GC (Ariz.), along with other programs supporting schools and civic organizations throughout the country.

“It seems like each and every day, somewhere in the world of Troon, we are working with local, regional and in many cases national charitable causes to coordinate golf tournaments, banquets, fundraising galas and the like,” says John Easterbrook, executive vice president of operations for Troon. “The net result in 2014 was more than $12 million raised for a number of great worthy causes.”

A number of Troon facilities reported results in excess of $1 million raised at their facilities in 2014, including:

  • Whirlwind GC at Wildhorse Pass in Chandler, Ariz. which raised $2,320,000;
  • Stockton Seaview Hotel and GC in Galloway Township, N.J., which raised $1,846,396;
  • Maderas GC in Poway, Calif., which raised $1,359,700;
  • Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, Calif., which raised $1,005,000; and
  • Lake of Isles in North Stonington, Conn., which raised $1,123,425.

“Thank you to all of our associates and facilities that played a role in these fundraising events, and more importantly, thank you to the organizations, boards and tournament planners that select Troon facilities to partner as host venues for their fundraising events,” Easterbrook says.
