Arizona, United States: Troon is to partner with SunRidge Canyon Golf Club, set in the dramatic surroundings of Fountain Hills in Arizona.
Golf at SunRidge Canyon is an adventure, where nature plays a profound role in establishing the layout among the ridges in Fountain Hills in some of the most picturesque and dramatic stretches of natural land in the Sonoran Desert.
Nestled between the canyon walls and foothills of the McDowell Mountains, on the edge of Scottsdale, this Keith Foster layout features scenic elevation changes, bold design features and natural beauty.
From its beginning and all the way through the signature ‘Wicked 6’ stretch of finishing holes, SunRidge Canyon is consistently ranked in the top 25 ‘Best Courses You Can Play’ in Arizona by Golfweek and Golf Magazine and also hosted the 2014 PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada.
“We are pleased to be involved with SunRidge Canyon Golf Club,” said John Easterbrook, Executive Vice President of Operations, Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “The property is well known for its unique location and impressive championship golf course and we are excited to offer our popular Troon programmes. We are confident that Troon’s impact will contribute positively to the overall value and experience.”
The club is nearing the completion of a US$500,000 enhancement project that boasts new Champion Bermuda greens, expanding putting surfaces, enhanced playability and even improvements to its expansive practice facility, which will host nationally recognised instructors.
Upon the club’s re-opening on October 2, SunRidge Canyon will welcome and participate in proven Troon programmes such as Troon Rewards, Troon Golf Vacations, Team Troon group/tournament opportunities and more.
SunRidge Canyon will immediately be added to the popular Troon Card programme as a participating club for Arizona and National Twosome and Foursome card programmes.
SunRidge Canyon is now also the global home to Hot Stix Golf, a leader in technology-based club fitting by certified club-fitters utilising proprietary fitting software and state of the art technology.
“We are thrilled to welcome Troon’s expertise to SunRidge Canyon Golf Club,” said Don Misheff, owner of SunRidge Canyon Golf Club. “SunRidge has long enjoyed a great reputation and we are excited about our new alliance and are confident that both local and travelling Troon customers and members will appreciate the golf, dining, instructional and club-fitting experience offered at SunRidge Canyon. Our staff takes great pride in providing our customers a total experience that doesn’t end on the 18th green.”
