Scottsdale, Ariz. (April 26, 2022) – Troon®, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Oldfield, a private, member-owned community in Okatie, South Carolina. Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon, will manage golf operations and agronomy, the Equestrian Center, Sports Club, Outfitters Center, food & beverage, and membership marketing, as well as Oldfield’s community association.

Located along the banks of the Okatie River, Oldfield is “Lowcountry Living. Perfected.” Oldfield, an Audubon International Certified Sustainable Community, offers an array of amenities for residents and members, including an 18-hole Greg Norman-designed golf course; Sports Club with cardio and strength training equipment, heated lap pool, large outdoor pool, wellness and nutrition clinics, and tennis and pickleball courts; and an Equestrian Center.

The River Club is the community’s centerpiece for dining, relaxing and conversation, affording members and guests with panoramic views of the marsh and river. The Magnolia Grill, located in the Oldfield Clubhouse, is a casual dining destination for lunch and dinner.
