Troon Selected To Manage Talking Rock

Golf and Luxury Home Community Features Peaceful, Rural Setting with a Casual Western Lifestyle

Scottsdale, Ariz. – Troon,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development, and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Talking Rock, a private club located in Prescott, Ariz.

Like the rest of Talking Rock, the golf course design was greatly inspired by the land’s natural terrain. Winding through meadows, preserving majestic stands of trees and complementing the contours of the terrain, the course offers a golf experience that is spectacular by nature. Wide, generous landing areas, strategically placed bunkers and greens that are clearly visible from virtually every fairway shot, define the classic private golf course. Five sets of tees offer players a variety of options to enjoy a relaxing, yet challenging round of golf and the 18-acre practice area features three acres of tees and dual putting and short game practice areas.

“Talking Rock is an exceptional private facility with a strong reputation of offering its members a relaxing lifestyle with all the amenities found at exclusive private clubs,” stated Jim McLaughlin, Senior Vice President, Troon Privé Operations. “We are honored to have been selected by them and are confident that our management practices will contribute positively to the experience of members and their guests.”

Talking Rock also offers a variety of home sites and custom homes to fit every style of living. Homeowners can build their own personal dream home or choose from a variety of home sites that offer privacy, golf course views, sweeping vistas and gorgeous mountains. The Ranch Cottages and The Cooper Ranch Homes offer a carefree lifestyle with smaller yet gracious, detached single-family homes.

“Talking Rock currently combines a unique and desirable golf experience with first-class amenities, and adding Troon to the equation further demonstrates our club’s quest for excellence” Peter Burger, director resort communities, The True Life Companies. “Troon is the leader in the golf industry and we’re excited that this new partnership will help us to continue to deliver the best service and value for our homeowners, players and guests.”

Inspired by classic western ranches, the Ranch Compound is the center of community life. Set among a cluster of buildings connected by open-air breezeways, residents can do as much or as little as they like. Whether it is a workout at The Barn Fitness Center, cocktails and dinner at Morgan’s Bar & Grill, taking a swing at tennis or pickle ball or a dip in our Olympic sized pool, residents can find it all.

Talking Rock also offers a variety of activities and social gatherings including health & wellness classes, culinary society, wine club, hiking club, video & book exchange, ladies lunch bunch and more. We also have plenty of outdoor pursuits and amenities including a dog park, community garden and miles of hiking and biking paths.
