by | Jun 11, 2024 | Business

The Troon Partners Network, a division of Troon, has selected Sensible Weather as its official Weather Protection Provider. Sensible Weather will offer Weather Guarantees for golfers playing at Troon-managed properties.

Sensible Weather aims to change the way people interact with the weather by making the unpredictable more predictable and creating products that facilitate peace-of-mind. As part of the Troon partnership, Sensible Weather will offer weather guarantees for purchase, allowing golfers to opt for a tee time refund from Sensible Weather instead of a rain check from the course. This also enables the Troon course operator to reduce cancellations and stress, lock in booked revenue, and increase guest loyalty.

“We are excited to announce this partnership with Sensible Weather,” said Ryan Pensy, Vice President, Strategic Partnerships at Troon Partners Network. “With more than 500 golf courses in our U.S. portfolio from coast-to-coast, weather is obviously a daily factor in running operations. Through this Sensible Weather partnership, we can benefit both our golfers and our golf course operators with a guarantee program that is a win-win for everyone.”

Sensible Weather is part of a stable of companies and brands that partner with Troon through the Troon Partners Network (TPN).
