Troon announces alliance with Florida's St. Joe Club & Resorts

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development, and marketing is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with St. Joe Club & Resorts, a Florida-based membership club that features hotels and luxurious vacation rental homes and condominiums along the coastal shores of northwest Florida.

St. Joe Club & Resorts will now utilize a dynamic suite of services offered by Troon to manage operations at St. Joe properties including, The Watersound® Beach Club, WaterColor Inn & Resort, Shark's Tooth Golf Club, Camp Creek® Golf Club and OriginsSM Golf Club.

Troon's new role will also support St. Joe Club & Resorts' recent decision to expand its business model. Traditionally, St. Joe only offered luxury homes and condominiums in its real estate developments of the WaterColor® and WaterSound Beach communities. The company recently expanded its operations to offer management services to homeowners in other communities along the prestigious Highway 30A.

"We are pleased to be involved with the expanded management services that are now offered through St. Joe Club & Resorts," stated Mike Ryan, senior vice president, Troon operations. "St. Joe is well known for its luxury vacation-home rental services, along with the high-end resort experiences found at its facilities. We are confident that combining Troon's expertise and support will contribute positively to the overall value and experience for property owners and guests."

Homeowners who choose St. Joe Club & Resorts to manage their vacation home may also become members of St. Joe Club and Resorts, which will provide them and their rental guests access to amenities and benefits not offered by other vacation rental companies in the 30A area.
