Troon®, the world’s largest golf and hospitality management company has been selected to manage and operate the Scorpion Bay Grill located in Scorpion Bay at Lake Pleasant in Peoria, Arizona. Troon’s food and beverage division manages more than 90 restaurants located at golf resorts, private clubs, daily fee golf courses and recreational facilities around the world.

In October 2015, Desert Troon Companies, a Scottsdale-based real estate development and investment firm, signed an agreement with the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to take over Scorpion Bay Marina’s concession operations for the next 25 years. The agreement transferred the marina, its 300 wet slips, the Scorpion Bay Grill, a ship store and the surrounding 200 acres around the bay to Desert Troon. In addition, Desert Troon will look to expand and improve the marina over the life of the agreement.

“Our food & beverage team will enhance the restaurant and dining experience at the Scorpion Bay Grill and will complement the outstanding upgrades currently underway at the marina,” said Ryan Walls, senior vice president, Troon. “We have introduced a new menu and continue to refine our culinary and service standards. Aside from the beautiful lake views, the planned expansion of the restaurant will be outstanding and will improve upon an already unbeatable lake experience.”

“When we began looking at future opportunities to improve our marina offering, we knew Troon could help support our efforts to bring a quality experience to our guests and marina members,” said Gary Elbogen, Executive Vice President, Desert Troon. “Over the last three years, we have enjoyed success working with Troon at Torreon Golf Club in the White Mountains of Arizona, and Cimarron Hills Golf & Country Club just outside Austin, Texas. As we continue our expansion plan at Scorpion Bay, Troon will be a key partner to help us deliver quality food and service to everyone enjoying Lake Pleasant.”

Despite having similar names, a common heritage and long rich history together, and both companies being based in Scottsdale, Desert Troon and Troon are independently owned and managed companies. For more information on Scorpion Bay or Scorpion Bay Grill, visit or call (928) 501-3441.
