Troon adds Cape Wickham Golf Links to its portfolio

POSTED ON November 20, 2018 @ 1:30 pm

Troon has announced today its latest collaboration with Cape Wickham Golf Links, Australia’s premier golfing destination on King Island off the north-west coast of Tasmania.

The upscale golf course management, development and marketing company continues to grow its presence in Australia, with a portfolio now reaching eight properties around the country.

Cape Wickham is recognised as the 24th best golf course in the world by Golf Digest in 2016 and is designed by Mike DeVries and Darius Oliver.  The stunning course offers an unforgettable round with eight holes straddling the breathtaking coastline, combining long and wide fairways with undulating greens, rugged ridges and giant sand dunes.

“Few courses in the world interact with the ocean in the way that Cape Wickham Golf Club does, making it one of the central attractions for golf in Australia,” commented Mark Chapleski, President of Troon International.

“DeVries and Oliver have created an exceptional course, which with Troon’s oversight will not only grow in prestige but also quality. The property is the perfect fit for the Troon International portfolio and we will ensure that visitors enjoy the venue and the range of amenities on-site.”

Cape Wickham’s Company Director, Richard Nebauer, said: “We are very excited to be uniting with Troon International to manage the Cape Wickham Golf Links. We are confident that this collaboration will provide growth and development for our resort and we look forward to the future with this international leader in golf course management.”
