July 12, 2016

The Cape Club by Troon (formerly Ballymeade Country Club), located on Cape Cod in Falmouth, Mass. will open for daily-fee play on Wednesday, Aug. 3. A new golf experience will be unveiled as the original 18 holes were essentially wiped away and a completely new golf course was constructed. The new golf course construction was coordinated by Troon’s vice president of golf course development Ron Despain together with Troon’s development department.

“The new Cape Club by Troon offers the quality of a private club, but it is open to the public,” said Ryan Payne, director of golf at The Cape Club. “Together with Troon, we’ve created a first-class golf destination designed to enhance a member for the day experience.”

The new Cape Club by Troon features:
--Elevated tee boxes with ocean and scenic Cape Cod views
--Dramatic water features on holes 9 and 18 that presents a challenging finish to each nine
--Augusta white-sand bunkers
--Wide, contoured fairways
--Cart paths materials were created using white crushed stone to match the look of the Augusta white-sand bunkers
--Large contoured green complexes
--Plus, a new state of art golf cart fleet with GPS yardage, F&B ordering capabilities, USB charging ports for mobile device charging and bucket seats.

Additionally, The Cape Club has unveiled a new practice facility. The facility has been relocated adjacent to the clubhouse to integrate golf, dining and social activities to provide a unique entertainment experience for guests.
Distance-tracking technology has also been integrated into the practice facility so golfers can accurately track ball speed and distance for each shot. Long-term plans for the practice facility include the construction of an upper deck with seating areas that allow guests to dine, practice, take in football or baseball games on flat screen televisions and socialize, all within steps of the practice tee.
