Whirlwind Golf Club at Wildhorse Pass in Chandler, Ariz., reported the most money raised by a single property with $2.3 million to benefit national and local philanthropic organizations.
Troon has announced that charitable events and tournaments at its facilities throughout the U.S. raised more than $12,609,533 for charities in 2014.
Through facility sales efforts, Team Troon national sales efforts and Troon charity programs like Troon Drives H.O.P.E., thousands of charitable events were hosted at Troon facilities throughout the year. National events included Patriot Golf Day, World’s Largest Golf Outing and Els For Autism, to name a few. Local and regional events included fundraising programs for local hospitals like the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s annual golf event at Troon North Golf Club in Arizona, along with other programs supporting schools and civic organizations throughout the country.
“It seems like each and every day, somewhere in the world of Troon, we are working with local, regional and in many cases national charitable causes to coordinate golf tournaments, banquets, fundraising galas and the like,” said John Easterbrook, executive vice president of operations for Troon. “The net result in 2014 was more than $12 million raised for a number of great worthy causes. We are honored to partner with these events and to give back to the communities where we serve.”
