Scottsdale, Ariz. (October 20, 2023) – Troon®, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage The Hideout Golf Club & Resort in Brownwood, Texas. Troon Golf, the resort and daily-fee division of Troon will manage the golf operations, agronomy, retail, and sales and marketing.

Located on the shores of Lake Brownwood, The Hideout Golf Club & Resort is one of Central Texas’ top destinations for championship golf and lakefront resort getaways. Set in the Texas Hill Country among giant oaks and meandering creeks, the Club’s 18-hole, par-72 golf course opened for play in 2008 and was designed by Bill Johnston.
