Scottsdale, Ariz. (February 28, 2018) – Troon®, the leader in golf course management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage The Frog Golf Club at The Georgian in Villa Rica, Georgia. Established in 1998 as a semi-private club, The Frog Golf Club at The Georgian will be managed by Honours Golf, a division of Troon headquartered in Birmingham, Ala.

Located approximately 35 miles west of Atlanta, The Frog Golf Club at The Georgian features an 18-hole, Tom Fazio-designed course that has been recognized as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and rated as one of the top courses in the state by Golf Digest. 

“The Frog Golf Club at The Georgian is an exceptional and beautiful golf facility,” said Bob Barrett CEO of Honours Golf. “Our Honours team will now look to further advance The Frog’s service levels, agronomy standards and overall club operations.” 

In June of 2015, the club opened a beautiful new clubhouse. The state-of-the-art facility features an expansive bar with lounge area, a spacious dining room, a deck overlooking the 18th green for outdoor dining, and a full-service golf shop.  

“We are excited to enter into this partnership with Troon,” said Biff McGuire, CEO of The Frog Golf Club at The Georgian and United Development Company. “Troon and its Honours Golf division are leaders in managed clubs with expertise in club marketing, golf and dining operations.”
