As a part of his recent chain of Phoenix real estate purchases, GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons has gained ownership of the Golf Club Scottsdale near Troon North. This was one of the lesser known golf clubs in the Troon North area. In 2011, Parsons sold a portion of GoDaddy for $2.25 billion and began to purchase what is now $200 million worth of real estate in the Phoenix area. The Golf Club Scottsdale changed hands just last month, but already some new changes are being implemented. Among these changes is the name of the club, now Scottsdale National Golf Club.
Since its inception in 2003, the 292-acre private golf club has attracted golfers who were interested in its exclusivity and prestige. The nearby Troon North Golf Club was more of a popular destination for snowbirds and other seasonal visitors. During the market crash, the club struggled to retain its already capped membership. After cutting its membership fee from $110,000 to $25,000 in 2011, the club had only 160 members remaining out of 350. However, the recent upturn in the market and the arrival of new construction in the area means that the new Scottsdale National Golf Club will soon be making a strong comeback.
Formerly known as the Golf Club Scottsdale, the Scottsdale National Golf Club is home to an 18-hole, par-72 golf course and a 25,000-square-foot clubhouse. Course designers Jay Morrish and Dick Bailey created the course to provide an unforgettable and challenging experience. Surrounded by the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, the pristine fairways offer unencumbered golf in a dramatic setting. The last four holes are situated along the slope of the adjacent mountain and are dubbed “Gambler’s Bluff.” This 4-hole stretch offers golfers a choice between playing it safe or taking a risk.
