The 13 were the first to receive such distinction. The designation is based on a list of requirements that define playability of the course and other customer experience for women.
Courses that receive the designation present a fun, challenging, playable option for all golf skill levels and create an overall positive experience for women golfers.
"Troon Golf recognizes that the future success of the game lies in creating a welcoming environment for all people interested in playing," said Hug Hinton, Troon president and COO. "Our golf facilities strive to create a sense of acceptance for women golfers and our hope is that all of our courses will soon be recognized as 'women friendly' facilities."
Troon Golf also announced that it has become a supporting partner of the EWGA, and all members will receive Silver Status in the Troon Rewards Program and Gold Status for EWGA Executive members. Golfers earn points everytime they play a Troon facility, and can use the points towards frree golf or Callaway Golf products.
The Concord course at The Revere is known around Las Vegas golf for its finishing hole, the par 5, 18th hole. The hole begins with a blind tee shot, and finishes with approach shots to a green well below the fairway that is fronted by a rocky gorge.
The Lexington course, that opened up for golf in Las Vegas to rave reviews, is the original 18, and has holes that dance through the rugged terrain of the the desert. Throughout the round golfers will enjoy dramatic views of the Las Vegas valley.
