Scottsdale, Ariz. – The members of the Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club have engaged Troon Golf,® the world leader in upscale golf course management, development, and marketing, to help bring a new level of luxury club living to Southern Utah’s Dixie Country. Troon Golf will oversee the golf and club operations for Entrada at Snow Canyon, an exceptional golf community in St. George, Utah.
Carefully positioned on 1,500-acres along the sandstone cliffs and ancient lava flows at the mouth of Snow Canyon, Entrada showcases PGA Tour legend Johnny Miller’s spectacular Signature golf course. His environmentally sensitive design reflects The Entrada Company’s tremendous respect for the unique geography. Open since 1996, Entrada has earned high ratings from Golf Digest Magazine, including No. 2 “Best Golf Course in Utah.”
Troon Golf links up with the Entrada Country Club to oversee construction of the 25,000-square-foot clubhouse. In early November, groundbreaking ceremonies marked the start of construction, which is scheduled to open in Fall 2004. Troon will manage the transition of Entrada from a semi-private facility to a private facility, gradually limiting outside play as the membership and real estate components reach full capacity.
“It was always our plan to bring in a top-tiered management company at this phase of the development. We are very excited to rely on Troon Golf’s industry experience to manage the more complex components of this project,” stated Club President, Rick Prince, who previously developed the 5-Star Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah. “Our respective cultures and business philosophies meld perfectly. This partnership assures Entrada members and guests the highest level of golf and club services.”
In addition to golf operations, Troon will manage the clubhouse operations and the 13,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Sports and Fitness Center. Future additions to the Entrada at Snow Canyon community will include 23 well-appointed lodging units that will be available in Fall 2004.
“We take great pride in partnering with the Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club, and sharing their commitment to excellence,” stated Troon Golf Executive Vice President, Acquisition & Development, Tim Schantz. “Our intent is to build on the natural and graciously informal atmosphere that makes Entrada so special, and to enhance the unique experience of this truly remarkable community.”
