Troon selected to manage Torreon Golf Club in Show Low, Arizona

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Torreon Golf Club, a family-oriented club in Show Low, Ariz. that offers members a laid-back and comfortable private club environment.

Known as Arizona's premier mountain community, Torreon is a scenic three-hour drive from both Phoenix and Tucson. Spanning 1,400 acres that border the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, Torreon offers a unique blend of luxury real estate, cozy accommodations and recreational activities tailored for the entire family to enjoy.

"Torreon is an exciting addition to our portfolio," stated Ryan Walls, senior vice president, Troon operations. "We are confident that combining the club's amenities and charming character with the skill and expertise of Troon Privé, our private club operating division, will result in an extraordinary experience for members and guests."

Torreon Golf Club's 36 holes of championship golf, designed by internationally acclaimed golf course architect Robert Von Hagge and his partners Mike Smelek and Rick Bari, offers one of Arizona's most exhilarating and picturesque golf experiences. Preserving the aesthetics of the land, including its natural washes and wildlife, golfers maneuver tree-lined fairways that frame spectacular mountain views. The Tower Course and Cabin Course are distinctive in style, creating a breadth of opportunities for any skill level.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for Torreon to build upon its leading position of mountain retreats in the Southwest," said Gary Elbogen, VP and general counsel, Desert Troon Companies. "Combining the outstanding amenities of the community and its idyllic family-driven and comfort-orientated approach with the professional management and member programs of Troon, is a complete win for everyone involved. We cannot be more excited about the opportunities that lay ahead for the residents and members of Torreon."

Torreon boasts a thoughtfully planned, private residential and recreational community that offers an abundance of activities to please every member of the family. Whether at the golf clubhouse, fitness center, heated pool, family recreation center, stables, legendary Cabin, or just visiting a friend's back patio, this is where families come to get away. Since its inception in 1998, Torreon members have discovered the pleasure of escaping to this four-season playground, enjoying opportunities to golf, ski, hike, ride horseback, fish, play tennis, ride bikes, and gather with friends and family.

Now part of the Troon Privé portfolio, the private club operating division of Troon, Torreon joins a collection of distinguished private clubs around the globe. Full golf members of Torreon now have immediate access to more than 30 world-class private clubs though the Troon Privé Privilege program, as well as to preferred rates at more than 85 resort and daily-fee properties through the Troon Advantage program.
