Scottsdale, Ariz. – Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected by SunCor Development Company to manage SunRidge Canyon Golf Club , set in the dramatic surroundings of Fountain Hills, Ariz.
SunRidge Canyon Golf Club features a 6,823-yard layout designed by Keith Foster, hidden among the ridges and canyons of the foothills of the McDowell Mountains. Nature played a profound role in establishing the facility as a premier golf facility. The dramatic stretch of natural terrain surrounding SunRidge Canyon is widely considered one of the most picturesque in the Southwest.
“Troon Golf is excited to continue its expansion in Arizona by managing SunRidge Canyon,” stated John Easterbrook, executive vice president of operations, Troon Golf. “This is a remarkable golf facility and we are confident that our management practices will contribute positively to the club’s well-established reputation.”
The strategic desert design at SunRidge Canyon is tempting for players of every level, which creates a true adventure for those embarking on a round of golf. Subtle changes in topography give the course a dramatic effect, demanding careful consideration for each shot. The par 71 course begins at the upper mouth of a dramatic canyon and descends switch-back style to the valley floor. Along the way, the course follows the rugged natural terrain of stony ridges, rock outcroppings and secluded hollows.
“SunCor is extremely pleased to partner with such a fabulous management company as Troon Golf in our efforts to provide one of the best golfing experiences that Arizona has to offer,” stated SunCor president and CEO Steven A. Betts.
Since the fairways are not parallel, players enjoy a true sense of serenity and oneness with the golf course, which doesn’t return to the clubhouse until the 18th hole. Despite its beauty, the course’s rare setting tests every aspect of the game. Each shot demands careful consideration of both risk and reward and success depends entirely on how skillfully these decisions are made.
