Toll Brothers hires Troon to manage new golf community

Toll Brothers is preparing to open its latest golf community in Surprise, Arizona., just northwest of Phoenix. The luxury homebuilder was once one of the most active developers in the nation until the recession in 2008. But it is again planning and developing golf course communities, but with a greater focus on families. 

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

Sterling Grove, a semi-private golf course will open this winter in a 780-acre lifestyle community. Toll Brothers has hired Troon to manage the golf course.

The property will be staff-gated and include 2,200 homes as well as both age-restricted and family neighborhoods, and a 35,000 square foot, modern ranch-inspired clubhouse with restaurants, spa, fitness, tennis, pools, and pickleball. The community will include trails, parks, fishing lakes, community gardens, and pet friendly parks.

Heritage Links, the contractor, broke ground on the golf course in early January, and crews are in the early stages of shaping the course and building bunkers and green complexes.

Nicklaus Design, the architect, said the concept for the golf course is to showcase features of the golden age of golf architecture. 

Sterling Grove will eventually be a private club reserved for members and their guests. However, when it opens, the course will be open to unaccompanied nonmembers to play as the Sterling Grove community builds out.

“Sterling Grove is a wonderful new development in the fast growing Northwest Valley,” said Mike Ryan, chief operating officer of Troon, the world’s largest management company. “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 beverages, to sales and marketing and merchandising. This is an exciting project for Troon to be a part of.”
