“The Royal Golf Club team is delighted to welcome DJ on board,” commented Stevenson. “He has worked for Troon for the past 13 years and is acclaimed as one of their top five performers worldwide. Together with Troon, DJ is tasked with taking the Club to the next level in terms of furthering its reputation and elevating the club experience for both Members and guests.
