Troon LLC, the Scottsdale-based golf management and hospitality company, is continuing to expand with acquisitions, most recently acquiring a company that uses technology to enhance the golfer-caddie experience.

Troon said it will make a significant investment in the newly acquired company, ClubUp, whose technology is in use at 65 golf clubs in the U.S., including in Arizona. It provides an online platform for more than 8,000 independent contractor caddies to make their services available, and its technology helps in the process of scheduling and communicating with caddies working at partner properties.

The Scottsdale company said it plans to expand and enhance the current ClubUp platform, adding features that partner clubs have been asking for.

“We are proud, and extremely excited, to bring ClubUp into the Troon family of brands and services offered to the industry,” Troon President and CEO Tim Schantz said in a statement. “The ClubUp technology is second to none, with smart, dedicated and hard-working leaders who will continue to support the product, business and ClubUp clients moving forward. We are excited to see the next chapter for ClubUp and support their continued dedication to their impressive roster of existing clients and those to come.”

ClubUp was founded in 2016 in Charlotte, North Carolina by CEO Matthew Rose and his brother, Michael. The company’s team will remain in place, and Matthew Rose said its business model and operations will remain unchanged. ClubUp made its first foray into the Valley market in 2017, when it partnered with Desert Mountain Golf Club in Scottsdale.

In 2018, the company raised $630 million in funding through a seed round.

Second Troon acquisition so far this year

So far in 2022, ClubUp has added 25 new partner clubs to its roster, which includes National Golf Links, Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, Los Angeles Country Club, Ridgewood Country Club and Cherry Hills Country Club.

“The support and investment from Troon will enable us to add even more value to our customers,” Rose said in a statement. “The time was right for ClubUp to be acquired and Troon was the ideal partner to help us take the next step as a leading golf technology company."

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Troon provides services at more than 680 locations around the world — including the management of more than 665 18-hole equivalent golf courses. It also provides services in homeowner association management, private residence clubs, estate management and associated hospitality venues.

Earlier this year, Troon also acquired Florida-based ICON Management Services, a golf, tennis, amenity and community association management company. Last December Troon added 30 clubs to its portfolio with the acquisition of tennis management company Peter Burwash International, or PBI, saying at the time that it was another step toward its goal to become a leader in the racket sports industry.

Snow seen falling at Troon North in Scottsdale; rain falls across metro Phoenix

The impossible has happened yet again — snow was sighted in Scottsdale.

According to the National Weather Service's Phoenix office, cold air caused a freezing effect at a lower elevation than typical, causing a brief but beloved snowfall at Troon North Golf Club and its surrounding neighborhood.

“For about 20, maybe 30 minutes at most we had some snow going on,” Ryan Martin, an assistant professional at Troon North Golf Club, told The Arizona Republic. “We had all the golfers pretty much come in. Everyone started hanging out in the restaurant; they were kind of taking videos and chuckling about it.

“Obviously it was really cold. We had a lot of people from the Midwest who were not very happy. They had thought they had gotten away from it, but it didn’t happen,” he continued.

Despite its short duration, Wednesday's snowfall in Scottsdale stirred the National Weather Service to investigate thanks to a single report of snow along Loop 101.

James Sawtelle, meteorologist with the weather service in Phoenix, said they were investigating whether it was snow or instead graupel, an ice-based substance that accumulates on the ground and looks close to hail. Snow also fell in Scottsdale in January 2021, although that time, a storm system also brought graupel to parts of Phoenix.

Either way, it likely won't happen again this week.

“It won’t last very long and the accumulations will not be as significant. It will be turning back to rain, and then the rain is going to rapidly taper off in the later part of the afternoon and into the early evening," Sawtelle said.

"We’ll still have some chance of some additional isolated showers until 8 p.m., but the scattered showers will probably last until 6 or 6:30 p.m.,” he continued.

Light rain blanketed much of metro Phoenix on Wednesday with areas from Gilbert and east Mesa to Glendale receiving between a third and a half of an inch of rain as of 6 p.m. Phoenix, Tempe, west Mesa and the South Mountain areas received closer to .15 to .3 inch of rainfall.

The northeast edge of the Valley including Troon North and Cave Creek saw the most precipitation, with one rain gauge in Carefree measuring 0.91 inch and one in Fountain Hills measuring 0.94 inch.

Northern Arizona sees inches of snow

The snow sighting occurred on a busy day for winter storms, with northern Arizona seeing a slew of closures related to the cold weather. Snow will continue in northern Arizona through early Thursday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

"We are continuing to see impacts from our winter storm across the high country. We have seen anywhere between a few inches of snowfall at some of our lower elevations to around a foot of snow here across the Flagstaff area," Lamont Bain, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Flagstaff office, said about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday.

"What we are anticipating in terms of additional snowfall amounts, a general 1- to 2-inch (increase) for areas just west of the I-17 corridor, but as you head closer to the I-17 corridor and really east and south of I-40, that's where we are really going to be looking at the potential for some additional heftier amounts — particularly across the Mogollon Rim and the White Mountains."

These two areas could see an additional 4 to 6 inches of snow before this storm is over, according to Bain.

Highways closed due to snow, crashes

The Arizona Department of Transportation reported swaths of highway closures due to winter weather.

Closures as of 6:45 p.m. included on State Route 87 between Payson and Winslow and in both directions of State Route 89A between Sedona and Flagstaff.

The Arizona Department of Transportation recommended drivers avoid all nonessential travel in these areas until the storm cleared. There was no estimated time to reopen the highways.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety reported state troopers were busy with vehicle slide-offs primarily along Interstate 40, Interstate 17 and State Route 89.

As of 4 p.m. DPS had not heard of any serious injury or fatal collision in which weather was a factor, although a tractor-trailer jackknifed, or folded on itself, and sustained major damage on I-40 eastbound near Williams, closing eastbound lanes at Ash Fork.

Winter weather closes schools in northern Arizona

The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for both Payson and Flagstaff, citing temperatures of about 30 degrees with 2 to 8 inches of snow, icy roads and high winds until 11 p.m. Wednesday. Additional winter weather advisories have been issued for areas around Prescott, Wickenburg, Kingman and Globe.

On top of roads being shut down, schools in Flagstaff and Prescott closed for the day due to weather as well. The Payson Unified School District did not shut its doors but instead suspended bus services Wednesday.

The Flagstaff Unified School District and Payson Unified School District No. 1 said its schools will start two hours later Thursday due to the weather. The Payson district said schools will be closed Thursday.

Coconino County, one of the counties most heavily impacted by the storm, says it is keeping crews working until Friday and using 17 graders, 12 snowplow trucks, the Bellemont salt truck and two loaders to remove 4 to 12 inches of snow across the northern Arizona territory.
