Golf course management company Troon International has added another string to its Australian portfolio following its appointment to partner Cape Wickham Golf Links, one of the country’s premier golfing destination.
The spectacular 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course is found on the northern tip of the breath-taking King Island. As Troon continues to grow its presence in Australia – it now operates at eight venues in the region – Cape Wickham is now set to benefit from Troon’s unrivalled expertise and experience.
Designed by Mike DeVries and Darius Oliver and recognised as the 24th best course in the world by Golf Digest in 2016, Cape Wickham offers an unforgettable round for all levels of player. With no fewer than eight holes straddling the coastline, this course combines long and wide fairways with undulating greens, rugged ridges and giant sand dunes.
“Few courses in the world interact with the ocean in the way that Cape Wickham does, making it one of the central attractions for golf in Australia,” commented Mark Chapleski, President of Troon International. “DeVries and Oliver have created an exceptional course, which with Troon’s oversight will not only grow in prestige but also quality. The property is the perfect fit for the Troon International portfolio and we will ensure that visitors enjoy the venue and the range of amenities on-site.”
Cape Wickham Company Director Richard Nebauer, said: “We are very excited to be uniting with Troon International to manage the Cape Wickham Golf Links. We are confident that this collaboration will provide growth and development for our resort and we look forward to the future with this international leader in golf course management.”
Cape Wickham’s accommodation is also unique, with all 16 rooms having superb ocean views over the course, Victoria Cove Beach and Cape Wickham Lighthouse. Each room is 34 square metres in size with a north-facing balcony, resulting in a luxurious stay for all. The clubhouse also provides breakfast, lunch and dinner, showcasing King Island’s local beef, seafood and cheese.
