Chicago, Ill. (April 27, 2020) – With golf courses throughout the Midwest now open for play, Troon® has launched a new Midwest Troon Card. With the Midwest Troon Card, golfers have the opportunity to save on golf at nine Troon-affiliated, Green Golf Partners courses in four Midwest states. As part of the program and in an effort to help those in need, Troon will donate $50 from every Midwest Troon Card sold before May 15th (then $25 after May 15th) to Feeding America. The health and safety of guests and associates continues to be the company’s top priority as all Troon-affiliated clubs remain vigilant in taking numerous safety precautions.

Feeding America is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States and provides meals to more than 40 million people each year, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors. Headquartered in Chicago with multiple foodbanks across the Midwest, Feeding America also supports programs that prevent food waste and improve food security among the people they serve.
