Troon Golf to manage SunCor’s Sanctuary Golf Course

Eco-friendly facility represents Arizona’s first and only Audubon Signature Status golf course

Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing announced it has been selected by SunCor Development Company to manage Sanctuary Golf Course in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Designed by acclaimed golf course architect Randy Heckenkemper, Sanctuary Golf Course is located on the western slope of the McDowell Mountains. The eco-friendly property is the only golf course in Arizona and the 17th in the world to obtain the coveted Audubon Signature Status – a certification program ensuring that golf courses protect the environment by applying sustainable resource management practices in the development and long-term stewardship of the property. The 18-hole course was transformed from a storm water retention area into an impressive par 71 golf facility with sweeping views of the Sonoran Desert. Sanctuary has become not only a safe-haven for flourishing plants and native wildlife, but the ideal location for golfers looking to escape the ordinary.

Sanctuary also features a charming 8,500 square-foot clubhouse equipped with an exceptional restaurant and well-equipped golf shop. Picturesque desert views are not limited to the golf course. The clubhouse’s patio provides the ideal spot for watching the sun as it majestically sets along the horizon behind Camelback Mountain.

Sanctuary is a complete Scottsdale golf club capable of hosting a variety of events. Its outdoor pavilion offers a picture-perfect setting for weddings and receptions, elegant celebrations and entertaining business events.
