Talk About Being Topical!

February 27th, 2015

On the very day that we publish Ian Bulleid’s Opinion piece about the virtues of third party management comes the news that the owner of Fairmont St Andrews, the five-star luxury resort located at the ‘Home of Golf’, has selected Troon to manage its golf operations. This may look like superb planning but I assure you it is pure chance.

Our week in San Antonio for The Golf Industry Show has been both educational and entertaining. We now look forward to going home to England for warmer weather!
