TROON SELECTED TO MANAGE WEST BAY GOLF CLUB & COMMUNITY IN ESTERO, FLORIDA
Scottsdale, Ariz. (November 2, 2018) – Troon®, the leader in golf course management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage West Bay Club, a member-owned private golf club and community located in Estero, Florida. Troon Privé, the private club operations division of Troon, will manage the award-winning club and community association.
Located on 868 acres adjacent to Estero Bay and bordering 500 acres of nature preserve and wetlands, West Bay Club offers a variety of exceptional neighborhoods and residential styles. Homes range from large single-family residences to high-rise living and everything in between. West Bay Club residents enjoy access to a host of exceptional amenities, including: a private Beach Club on the Gulf of Mexico with an old Key West-style Beach House restaurant; the Bay House, an activity center with casual dining; resort-style swimming pool; a fitness center; Sports Park, featuring pickleball and a dog park; and the River Park with boat launch and storage, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, an open-event field, children's play area, basketball courts and picnic pavilions.
“The Community Board of Directors believes that based on Troon Privé’s proven track record of providing lifestyle excellence, operational effectiveness, coupled with their focus on customer satisfaction, they will exceed our residents’ expectations,” said Jerry Beaubien, Board President, West Bay Club Community Association.
West Bay’s original 18-hole golf course opened in 1999 and was designed by Pete and PB Dye. In April 2018, the golf club began an extensive $4 million golf course renovation project led by architects Dana Fry and Jason Straka. The newly renovated golf course will reopen for member and guest play on November 17, 2018. During renovations, Fry and Straka enhanced green complexes, rebuilt and repositioned bunkers, improved the course’s drainage system and re-grassed the course with new turf grass.
“Our golf club has and will continue to invest in making West Bay a sought after private golf club destination. Partnering with Troon Privé will ensure our investment is protected and our member experiences are best in class,” said Gene Delaney, Board President, West Bay Golf Club.
Golf Club members enjoy access to the golf course; Golf House, a beautiful fine-dining restaurant located in the clubhouse; and Niblick, a casual bar featuring a variety of local brews. As part of the management agreement, full West Bay Golf Club members now have access to extraordinary golf and lifestyle experience benefits around the world through Troon.
“West Bay is a beautiful club and community,” said Rob DeMore, president, Troon Privé. “We are honored to be working with the residents and members of West Bay and look forward to enhancing an already incredible property.”
