Troon Golf will continue to manage the daily operations and maintenance of The Rawls Course

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech Athletics announced Wednesday it has agreed to a four-year extension with Troon Golf to continue to oversee daily operations and maintenance of The Rawls Course through May 2021.

“We’re pleased to extend our agreement with a tremendous partner in Troon Golf,” Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt said. “Troon is the premier course management company in the country, and we’re excited they will continue to manage the day-to-day operations at The Rawls Course, which is hands down one of the top campus courses in the country.”

Texas Tech originally entered into its partnership with Troon in May 2009. As part of the agreement, Troon is responsible for the daily upkeep of the course, including the full-service pro shop and Jerry’s Grill that are both located inside the state-of-the-art Cash Foundation Clubhouse.

Under Troon’s management, The Rawls Course has annually been lauded as one of the top collegiate courses in the country. Golfweek Magazine most recently ranked the facility as the No. 2 public course in the state of Texas and the No. 3 campus course in the nation.

In addition to being a public course, The Rawls Course is home to the Tech men’s and women’s golf teams. Both nationally-ranked programs have access to private hitting bays and a short course at the facility that are maintained by Troon personnel, ensuring both teams have the best playing conditions for practice and competition.

The facility has hosted two NCAA Regionals in recent years as Greg Sands’ men’s program defended its home course to advance to the NCAA Championships in 2015 while JoJo Robertson’s team did the same this past spring en route to the Lady Raiders’ second trip to the national tournament over a three-year span.

The Rawls Course is one of two properties in the Lubbock area operated by Troon, which runs golf locations in 32 countries across the world. The company recently opened 4ORE!, its first golf entertainment venue, at 6909 Marsha Sharp Freeway in Southwest Lubbock.
