Mississippi’s North Creek GC picks Troon

The Tracy May design, which will celebrate its 25th anniversary next year, pays homage to links style golf courses.

Troon has been selected to provide management services at North Creek Golf Club, a daily-fee facility in Southaven, Mississippi. Indigo Sports, a division of Troon, will oversee golf operations, agronomy, and sales and marketing for the golf facility.

Located nine miles from Memphis International Airport and 13 miles from downtown Memphis, North Creek Golf Club features an 18-hole, par 72 championship layout. Open since 1998, the Tracy May-designed course pays homage to links style golf courses with strategic dunes, steeply inclined bunkers and fairways flanked by mounding. 

Texas-based Boxer Resorts purchased North Creek Golf Club in July 2020 and set a plan aimed at elevating the golf, social and event experiences at the Memphis club. Property improvements executed over the last 24 months include:

  • Bunker renovation to include fresh/new bunker sand, lining and drainage in all 40 of the bunkers
  • Irrigation system improvements involving the controls and pump station enhancements, which will support enhanced golf course conditions
  • Completed clubhouse enhancements including paint, renovation of ballroom and event center, HVAC improvements and new televisions in the bar and grille
  • New Club Car golf cart fleet

“Boxer Property has a long-standing relationship with Troon that has been beneficial to both parties,” Bozer Resorts senior project manager Michael Owen said. “We are excited to expand this partnership in Southaven.” 

“North Creek Golf Club is an area favorite that serves up a golf experience that is fun, friendly and inviting for all,” Troon global sales and marketing EVP Kris Strauss said. “We are excited to collaborate with Boxer Resorts to continue to refine even further these great experiences for frequent players, event planners, outing/tournament participants and beyond.”
