Centurion Club, the exclusive private club in Hertfordshire, England, has been recognised by its management company, Troon Golf®, following yet another year of outstanding membership growth. Awarded at the annual Troon Leadership conference, hosted at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa in Chandler, Arizona, Centurion Club picked up the “International Membership Sales Rock Star Award” at the coveted closing ceremony for its impressive sales efforts throughout 2014.
Reflecting Troon’s status as the market-leader in its competitive set and in celebration of its 25-year anniversary, Troon delegates from around the world gathered for the three-day conference. The Centurion Club was crowned with the Rock Star award to acknowledge the exclusive venue’s standout achievement in delivering exceptional membership growth, the best across Troon’s flourishing International Division.
As one of the UK’s leading private clubs, Centurion Club, located near St Albans, has been steadfast in its development of a unique member experience. Thanks to its innovative package offering, the venue boasts an enviable membership collective who not only relish in the surroundings of an immaculate Par-72 golf course but enjoy a vibrant social environment befitting of the community, which has resulted in significant membership growth year-on-year.
Collecting the award on behalf of Centurion Club, Managing Director, Scott Evans commented, “Firstly I must congratulate the sales team for their sterling effort in the pre-opening period, and now, as we welcome new guests; their outstanding commitment have shaped where we stand today as a golf facility and the experience in place for our members.
