Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing has expanded its offering for amateur golfers with a series of world-class golf events at three of its exclusive properties across its International portfolio. Presented by the industry-specialists, The Troon Cup series includes all-encompassing packages to enable teams of four to sample its exemplary golf courses, award-winning service, and hospitality. Forming part of the 2014 Troon Cup series are events at Open Championship venue, Turnberry Resort, Scotland and European Tour School host venue, Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, Spain, with 2014 marking the introduction of European Tour venue, La Reserva de Sotogrande Golf Club on the rota for the first time. In only the club's first full year of operation under the market-leaders, the inaugural event for the Spanish property, reaffirms its position as a leading golf facility, with Troon taking its golf experience to an all-new level.

The 18-hole facility, designed by world-renowned golf course architect, Cabell B. Robinson, is situated on the exclusive Sotogrande estate on the Andalucían coast, consistently ranked amongst Continental Europe's most sought-after golf courses. Having recently paid host to the world's best golfers on the European Tour for the NH Collection Open, the property now looks forward to welcoming golfers for the 2014 Sotogrande Cup, presented by Troon. The event, which runs from Sunday 6 th to Wednesday 9 th July 2014 includes rounds over the generous fairways and variety of tee options of La Reserva, in addition to a round at the 1997 Ryder Cup host venue, Valderrama Golf Club. Combining a challenge for golfers of all abilities, the Sotogrande Cup is rounded off with great dining, a drinks reception and full prize presentation along with three nights' accommodation at the partnering NH Almenara Hotel.

Juan Alvarez Lozano, Director of Golf , La Reserva de Sotogrande Golf Club, commented "We are looking forward to hosting our friends from Troon properties, and guests from across Europe; we are sure the Sotogrande Cup will be a fantastic addition to the series and form an integral part of the Troon Cup for years to come."

The first of the 2014 events presented by Troon took place recently at Turnberry Resort, Scotland, with players following in the footsteps of legends at the Open venue, which has famously witnessed Tom Watson, Greg Norman, Nick Price and Stewart Cink all lift the Claret Jug. Guests enjoyed their golf on the testing legendary championship courses, The Ailsa and The Kintyre, and rested their heads in the comfortable surroundings of the Lodges at Turnberry with a local, full Scottish breakfast on offer each day. The team from The Centurion Club, the Troon Privé property near St Albans, walked away with the title during the prize giving lunch celebrations, following a fantastic three days.

"The expansion of the Troon Cup program is testament to the combined effort of so many, from club directors to our individual associates, who continue to deliver world-class events. Many of the participants are from other Troon facilities and they take away fine memories and a desire to host their own installments, with their own individual twists." commented Bruce Glasco, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Troon International Operations. "We are pleased to add La Reserva; it brings with it a fantastic golf offering following the club's resurgence, headed by Juan and the rest of his team. The addition of the Sotogrande Cup emphasises the ownership group's continued commitment to elevate the property's already impressive member and visitor experience."
