Troon Selected To Manage Broken Top Club In Bend, Oregon
By Brian Weis
Troon, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Broken Top Club, a private club located in Bend, Oregon. Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon, will manage golf operations, food & beverage, golf course agronomy, and membership marketing.
Broken Top Club originally opened in 1994 and is considered one of the premier private club experiences in Central Oregon. The property's name comes from a nearby hollowed-out volcano, the remnants of whose cinder cone forms a jagged edge 9,155 feet above sea level. The club offers a vast array of amenities including an award-winning Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish-designed golf course, an 18-hole putting course, a golf performance center, two tennis courts, eight pickleball courts, and a fitness center with a yoga studio spa and steam rooms. The golf course and property are set in the high desert, in the foothills of the majestic Cascade Mountains. The award-winning 7,161-yard, par 72 course blends traditional design elements with modern routings, bunkers and green complexes.
"We are excited to partner with a top-rated private club in Broken Top Club," said Ryan Whitney, senior vice president of operations, Troon. "The beauty of the setting and quality of the professional team will serve as a foundation for creating a first-class member experience."
Broken Top's 27,000-square-foot clubhouse overlooks a six-acre lake and showcases stunning views of the Cascade Mountains. With a massive wood-burning fireplace, exposed timber trestles and rough-hewn rock, the clubhouse offers a casually elegant place for members and guests to relax and unwind. The expansive Broken Top Restaurant is the cornerstone of the clubhouse. The culinary team uses only the best of fresh local ingredients. Artisinal cheeses from Tumalo Farms, organic herbs and heirloom tomatoes from Klamath Falls, natural beef from Madras, natural poultry from Central Oregon and fresh fish from the coast.
"We are constantly striving to make Broken Top the best private club in the Pacific Northwest," said Broken Top Club Board of Directors President Monica Harrington. "The Board believes that based on Troon Privé's proven track record of operational effectiveness and focus on member and guest satisfaction, the team will help us elevate the club experience."
As a Troon Privé-managed club, Broken Top Club members can enjoy the Troon Privé Privileges program, which delivers extraordinary golf and lifestyle benefits as well as reciprocal play at other Troon Prive-managed private clubs around the world.
