Play where they know your name
Even if you aren't a big fan of the TV show "Cheers", you know the theme song about going to a place where everybody knows your name. There is something to be said about that at a golf course too. It is nice to be greeted like a friend, it is nice to talk to the cart guy like buddies, it is nice to chat with the pro on a personal level. I've really enjoyed playing at Troy Burne this season and getting to know the course staff, whom I believe are some of the best golf course workers around.
Sometime high-end public courses get a reputation for being snooty or "fake" private clubs that just want your money, but don't really care about you as a golfer. I've found that to be true of some courses in the Twin Cities, but Troy Burne is different. Their staff seems to actually care and go out of their way to make your time at Troy Burne a positive experience. From the 1st time guest to the "regular" they offer top notch service.
Their PGA staff is considered one of the best in the Twin Cities with Dave Tentis running the show and Brent Snyder giving lessons, you can't go wrong in dealing with either one of these two PGA pros for your golfing needs. I've watched them both in action and they are really good at what they do.
The pro shop staff is also really good; they are always friendly when you enter and helpful when you need it. Once you leave the clubhouse you are greeted by courteous and informative guys and gals manning the cart and baggage areas. The on-course beverage carts and marshals do a great job keeping things moving and well hydrated.
Troy Burne is a top layout in the Twin Cities, offers a good value with the Player's Card and has a wonderful staff; it is everything your looking for in a golf course.
