TROON SELECTED TO MANAGE THE STANDARD CLUB IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA
Troon®, the leader in club management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage The Standard Club, a private club located in Johns Creek, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Troon Privé, the private club operations division of Troon, will manage the historic club.
The Standard Club was founded in 1867 with an historic social club heritage in downtown Atlanta. The club was relocated in 1987 to its current north-Atlanta address in Johns Creek. The full service country club is located on 300-plus acres of Audubon-designated natural habitat. The club’s 18-hole golf course was originally designed by Arthur Hills and opened for member play in 1987. Golf course architect Mike Riley redesigned the course in 2005 and it is now regarded as one of the top golf courses in Georgia.
“The Standard Club has a rich and storied history in Atlanta,” said Michael Ryan, vice president of operations, Troon. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to enhance an already spectacular club through Troon levels of service and proven agronomy practices, while embracing the traditions already in place at The Standard Club.”
In addition to golf, the 125,000 square-foot clubhouse includes both formal and casual dining rooms, a private dining room, a banquet ballroom and patio dining overlooking the course. Member amenities include four indoor air-conditioned tennis courts, 8 outdoor clay courts, four outdoor hard courts, a state-of-the-art fitness center, as well as racquetball and basketball courts. The club’s swimming pool complex was recently renovated and features a pool, waterslide and kids water mushroom.
“Partnering with Troon is a natural step in our evolution as a private club of distinction in Atlanta. Troon’s extensive expertise and proven record of success will enable The Standard Club to extend its historic legacy for future generations of families to enjoy,” said Mark Elgart, president, The Standard Club.
