Peter Burwash International, a Troon Company, has been selected to manage racquet operations at Owl's Nest Resort, a resort and club located in the White Mountains of northern New Hampshire. Luana Stanciu has been named Director of Racquets, effective May 31st.
Owl's Nest Resort is an all-encompassing destination that features amenities and lodging for the whole family. The 600-acre residential community is complemented by a variety of lodging options including houses, cottages and hotel rooms. The 18 hole golf course designed by Jack Niklaus introduces a unique experience just less than two hours from Boston combined with the inspired living that can only be found in the White Mountains. Owls Nest also features Lake Harold, a man made lake on property, as well as an award-winning restaurant with panoramic views. Visitors, guests and members have access to three unique racquet sports at Owls Nest. The resort opened four platform tennis courts in 2021, and will unveil eight clay tennis courts alongside 13 pickleball courts in July 2022. The resort is the only facility in New Hampshire to feature platform tennis, pickleball and tennis.
“Owl's Nest Resort is a stunning location that we are thrilled to partner with and help grow the racquets program,” said Rene Zondag, President of Peter Burwash International. “We look forward to introducing a wide array of programming for all ages and abilities, and creating unique travel packages for tennis, pickleball and platform tennis players.”
