    Low pay with extremely long hours - too much work. Little trust of staff and micromanagement. A lot of turnover which makes things constantly chaotic.

    I have been working at Troon Golf (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free golf, meals, and uniforms.

    Cons

    Educated employee's are looked down upon by supervisor's who have little or no education; 'slacker' employee's are rewarded; hard working employee's are expected to continue to work hard and then some; supervisor's talk to other subordinates about other subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate will wise up one day and discover that you (management) are not doing your job and that you can no longer favor certain employee's just because they 'do you favors'.

    I worked at Troon Golf (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Troon offers great benefits, but they don't come cheap.

    Cons

    Corporate could care less if you have an excellent, long-standing relationship with Troon. They give no priority with job transfers at all, however, yet they claim to do so. They are happy managing clubs from afar, but when an issue arises, they storm in with guns blazing before actually speaking with anyone to resolve any issues. No balls either when it comes to standing up to rude, unreasonable guests who treat staff like loser lowlifes.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your team always!!
