Troon, the largest golf management company in the country, has been selected to manage the Wickenburg Ranch Golf & Social Club, which is located within the master-planned community of Wickenburg Ranch that was developed by The M3 Companies from Phoenix. The Wickenburg Ranch Golf & Social Club in Wickenburg, Arizona was originally created as a private club for members and guests but is now open to a limited amount of non-members.

“Wickenburg Ranch Golf & Social Club is an exciting new property that has already received high praise in the golf world,” said Mike Ryan, executive vice president and co-chief operating officer for Troon. “We look forward to engaging and growing the membership and further elevating the level of service and member programming at this outstanding club.”

Golf at Wickenburg Ranch

The Golf & Social Club is the highlight of the Wickenburg Ranch master-planned development, which is also home to Shea Homes’ active lifestyle community of Trilogy at Wickenburg Ranch. The golf course was designed to blend in with the community’s natural environment instead of being built around it for a unique experience and dramatic landscapes. The 18-hole, par-71 course, known as Big Wick, opened in 2015 and was designed by Bill Brownlee of The M3 Companies and Wendell Pickett of Greey/Pickett.

Big Wick has been featured in several publications and earned spots on top lists such as Golf Digest’s “Top 10 Best New Courses in North America” in 2015 and Golfweek’s 2017 “Best Courses You Can Play in Arizona.” The club also features a 9-hole, par-3 course called Li’l Wick that was also designed by Brownlee and Pickett and includes music streamed throughout the course and a more relaxed dress code. The short game surrounds a bar and grill called the Watering Hole, which combines golf and entertainment for a casual and fun experience.

In addition to the two golf courses, Wickenburg Ranch also has an award-winning 40,000-square-foot clubhouse designed by architect Bing Hu. The clubhouse won the notable Pacific Coast Builders Conference Gold Nugget Award of Merit for Best Recreational Facility. The clubhouse features panoramic views of the golf course and desert landscape as well as on-site restaurants, the Alvea Spa, a fitness center, and a sports complex that offers four championship tennis courts, six pickleball courts, horseshoe pits, and bocce courts.

What Troon Will Bring

With Troon managing the golf course and social club, full golf members of Wickenburg Ranch Golf & Social Club will be eligible for the Troon Privé Privilege program. The program provides access to more than 80 Troon Privé-managed private clubs across the world. Members will also have exclusive access and savings to Troon’s portfolio of more than 150 daily fee, resort, and private clubs around the world via Troon Advantage.

“JVT Investors and M3 are very grateful for the team at BlueStar. The amazing work completed so far shows in the accolades received from across the country. We will continue to partner with Shea Homes in Wickenburg Ranch, and the community will remain a Trilogy Resort Community,” said Larry Van Tuyl, CEO and President of JVT Investors. “As we continue to grow the community, add additional builders and scale our memberships, we decided that Troon could scale with that growth, and we look forward to the expanded benefits Troon brings to our existing and future members.”
