Troon selected to manage Wilderness Club Resort in Montana

Scottsdale, Ariz. (January 19, 2022) – Troon®, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage the Wilderness Club Resort in Eureka, Montana. Troon Golf, the resort and daily-fee operating division of Troon, will manage golf operations, hospitality, food & beverage, golf course agronomy and golf marketing.

Wilderness Club Resort is a semi-private club located in Northern Montana near the Kootenai National Forest, approximately eight miles from the Canadian border. The property features an 18-hole Sir Nick Faldo-designed golf course that is rated as the No. 1 course you can play in Montana by Golfweek and ranked No. 57 on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses. The course is open for daily-fee and resort-guest play April through November and is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, between the Whitefish and Purcell Mountain Ranges. Routed through natural streams, lakes and Ponderosa Pines, the golf course opened for play in 2009.

“Wilderness Club Resort is one of the most beautiful properties in the world. Troon is honored to have been chosen to help manage this incredible property,” said Mitch Harrell, executive vice president, Troon Golf. 

The 550-acre resort offers a collection of fully-equipped suites, cabins and cottages that can accommodate everything from a couples getaway to large group or family gathering. A full-service spa, horse park, water park, sports park and a 21-acre lake for fishing provide resort guests with a bevy of non-golf recreational options.

“I'm very excited to have Troon as our partner,” said Brian Ehlert, managing partner of Wilderness Club. “I know they will deliver and improve our guest and member experiences.  Troon's wealth of knowledge and expertise will benefit the Wilderness Club Resort in so many ways. Together, we will make our property even more desirable and stunning.  It's a must visit!”
