Thanksgiving Point reports work progress


Lehi, Utah (July 18, 2018) – Thanksgiving Point Golf Club, located adjacent to the Thanksgiving Point Institute, approximately 25 miles south of Salt Lake City in Lehi, is in the midst of a multi-phase enhancement project. Enhancements began in May and will continue throughout the summer with daily golf play minimally impacted. Improvements are touching every aspect of the clubhouse and golf course.

In early May, Troon, the world’s largest course management company, began managing operations at Thanksgiving Point Golf Club with the directive from ownership to enhance the entire club experience – from customer service, infrastructure, agronomy, programs and food and beverage operations. The Troon team wasted little time as recently completed improvement projects include new paint, furniture and décor throughout the interior of the clubhouse; the debut of the Clubhouse Grill; enhanced landscaping at the front of the clubhouse; repaving of the club’s parking lot; plus, the addition of new meeting space and a bridal suite. Additional projects on the horizon include a new roof on the clubhouse, expanded family and junior programming and the launch of a new annual pass program.

“It’s an exciting time at Thanksgiving Point Golf Club,” said Chris Thomas, general manager, Thanksgiving Point Golf Club. “We’ve made a number of improvements in-and-around the clubhouse and have other projects either planned or in the works. Guests and frequent golfers are definitely taking note of the changes and appreciate our attention to detail. The future is bright for Thanksgiving Point Golf Club.”

In addition to improvements in-and-around the clubhouse, the agronomy team will soon begin upgrading the course’s irrigation system with newer, more-efficient sprinkler heads and valves. Plans are also being made for a bunker enhancement project and practice facility updates.
