The North Stonington, Conn. property, managed by Troon for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, is kicking off its anniversary year with a giveaway of a dozen balls to golfers booking a tee time on its North Course in May.
Lake of Isles, in North Stonington, Conn., is kicking off its 10th anniversary year with a promotion through which golfers will receive one dozen Callaway Speed Regime golf balls when they book an anniversary tee time in May on the club’s award-winning North Course.
Lake of Isles, owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe and managed by Troon, was featured in Club & Resort Business shortly after it opened in May 2005 (“Ace of Clubs?” June 2005; http://clubandresortbusiness.com/2005/06/01/betting-big-at-lake-of-isles/). The club is part of the Foxwoods Resort Casino complex developed in eastern Connecticut by the Pequots.
“In just ten short years, Lake of Isles has established itself as one of the best golf facilities in the country,” said Archie Cart, who has served as the club’s General Manager from its inception. “Both [of the club’s Rees Jones-designed golf] courses are rated in the top five in the state, and the North Course is ranked among the top 100 of Courses You Can Play [in the U.S.].
“We take great pride in providing our members and guests with the ultimate experience from pristine course conditions, five-star service and amenities that are found only at Lake of Isles and Foxwoods,” Cart added.
Renovations of greenside bunkers on both courses were undertaken within the past three years (the South Course in 2012, and the North Course renovations were completed this year). Both courses will be used this year for the Connecticut State Golf Association Men’s Amateur Golf Championship, to be held June 16-20.
Lake of Isles has also added GPS on all golf carts and is focusing on improved pace of play through its “Troon Values Your Time” program for the 2014 season. The Troon Golf Academy on the property has added the TrackMan swing- and ball flight-analysis system to help golfers take their game to the next level.
The club’s pro shop has been consistently rated as among the top 100 merchandisers in the country since its opening ten years ago.
“We strive to be the best in all areas of the operation,” Cart said. “We continuing to add technology and service initiatives to enhance our guest experience [and] keep them coming back.”
