Troon selected to manage Sterling Grove in Surprise

Troon, the leader in club management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage Sterling Grove, a new semi-private club currently under development in Surprise, Arizona, northwest of Phoenix. Scheduled to open in the winter of 2020, Sterling Grove will be the centerpiece of the 780-acre Sterling Grove Toll Brothers lifestyle community.

Nicklaus Design golf course architects and Heritage Links construction company broke ground on the golf course in early January 2019. According to Nicklaus Design, the concept for the golf course is to showcase features from the golden age of golf architecture, providing golfers with a very playable and enjoyable golf course. Crews are currently in the early stages of shaping the course and building bunkers and green complexes.

Sterling Grove will ultimately become an exclusive private club reserved for members and their guests. When the course opens in the winter of 2020 and for a limited time as the Sterling Grove community builds out, the club will be open to daily-fee and unaccompanied non-member play.

“Sterling Grove is a wonderful new development in the fast-growing Northwest Valley,” said Mike Ryan, chief operating officer, Troon. “Together with Toll Brothers and Nicklaus Design, Troon is fully-engaged with all facets of the new club from design and development, agronomy, food and beverage, to sales and marketing and merchandising. This is an exciting project for Troon to be a part of.”

The staff-gated, luxury resort community will encompass 2,200 homes and include both age-restricted and family neighborhoods, an 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course, and a 35,000 square-foot, modern ranch-inspired clubhouse with restaurants, spa, fitness, tennis, pools, and pickleball. Incorporating design and architecture from some of Arizona’s most iconic neighborhoods, the community will include trails, parks, fishing lakes, community gardens, pet friendly parks, and many new and innovative community amenities. 

“Our new home designs will appeal to a wide variety of home buyers, from families with children, to empty nesters and active retirees,” Toll Brothers Division Senior Vice President Kevin Rosinski, said.

“With our strong economy in this metro area, rising employment opportunity in the Northwest Valley, and great weather, Sterling Grove is a perfect location for those homeowners looking to relocate or purchase a vacation home,” Rosinski added.
