Scottsdale, Arizona – In the natural progression of the company’s global strategy, Troon Golf,® the world leader in upscale golf management, development and marketing, is pleased to announce its recent contract with Ralph Trustees Limited, to help manage golf operations for The Grove, a new cosmopolitan country estate and golf resort in London, England.
Scheduled to open in July 2003, The Grove has been restored with help from English Heritage into a luxurious five star 227-room resort destination only 30 minutes from London’s West End and Heathrow International Airport.
Golf course designer Kyle Phillips, well known in Great Britain and Europe after his stunning success at Kingsbarns, has created a superb design that fits with the quintessentially English parkland to complement the feel of the estate, which was formerly the home of the Earl of Clarendon. Troon Golf will help manage operations from beautifully appointed golf facilities provided in a restored stable block, a Grade II listed historic building featuring the original clock tower and overlooking the 9th and 18th greens.
“The Grove will blend wide open spaces with contemporary interiors while maintaining the centuries old aura left by many ancestors of the estate,” said Paul Dellanzo, Troon Golf Vice President, European Division. “Troon Golf Europe is honored to partner with a company as respected as The Ralph Trustees in London’s first true venture in resort golf.”
“The Grove is a spectacular property in a great location,” stated Troon Golf Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dana Garmany. “This is an exciting development in Troon Golf’s European operation.”
Visitors to London and golf vacationers will find The Grove three hundred acres of style thirty minutes from London’s west end and Heathrow especially convenient.
