Troon selected to manage Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club

Scottsdale, Ariz. (June 12, 2024) – Troon®, the leader in providing golf and club-related leisure and hospitality services, is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club, a member-owned club in Flagstaff, Ariz.  Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon, will manage club operations, agronomy, food & beverage, and membership marketing.

Set at an elevation of 7,238 feet among the Ponderosa Pines of Northern Arizona, Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club was founded in 2003. The Club features a Jerry Pate-designed golf course that takes full advantage of the beauty of its mountain setting with dramatic elevation changes and views for hundreds of miles. The 7,127-yard, par-72 course is considered one of the state’s top layouts, ranked No. 16 in Arizona on Golfweek’s recently released “Best Private Clubs” state-by-state ranking.

“We believe the Ranch is the hidden gem of mountain golf in the southwest,” said Flagstaff Ranch Board President Jeff Willis. “After an extensive review, we determined that our status as a premier club will be enhanced by partnering with Troon Privé.  We look forward to being part of the Troon family while maintaining our club’s mission to elevate our members’ experience.”
