The AJGA Championship and new management agreement with Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon, have helped create a renewed sense of energy and excitement around the club. Also fueling the momentum is Princeton University’s recent extension of the club’s licensing agreement, which carries forward the collaborative relationship enjoyed for more than 120 years.
“The club’s historical significance, unique William Flynn design, and challenging greens, blended with Troon’s operational expertise, will take Springdale Golf Club to the next level in member experience and commitment to the Princeton community,” said Kevin Tylus, board president, Springdale Golf Club.
Troon Privé assumed golf and club operations at Springdale on July 1st.
