Boca Grove taps Troon for management

Boca Grove taps Troon for management

Designed by Karl Litten and redesigned by Jim Fazio, the course has hosted Champions Tour events won by Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.


Troon has been selected to manage Boca Grove, an exclusive, members-only golf, tennis and country club in Boca Raton, Florida. Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon, will manage golf, tennis and club operations, food & beverage, golf course agronomy, and membership marketing and programming.

Boca Grove’s original Karl Litten-designed golf course opened for play in 1982 and hosted the Quadel Senior Classic, a Champions Tour event won by Arnold Palmer in both 1983 and ’84, and by Gary Player in 1985. The course was redesigned in 2011 by Jim Fazio. The 6,808-yard golf course plays to a par of 72.

“Boca Grove has experienced two tremendous years with record home sales, completion of a new building and a merger of our club and POA,” said Boca Grove Property Owner’s Association board president Marc Gillman. “We are stronger than we have been in over a decade and wanted to give ourselves the best chance to remain on top regardless of what the future holds. We feel Troon offers a strong support system through best practices at over 500 properties worldwide, leveraged buying power and, most important, a culture that cares about the members of our club as well as our personnel. It is the right choice for us at the right time.”

“Boca Grove is a first-class private club and community with incredible amenities,” said Ricardo Catarino, Troon VP of operations. “Our Troon Privé team is excited to enhance and push the member experience to new heights through engaging programs and outstanding service. We appreciate the opportunity that the board has provided us to partner with an engaged and dedicated team at Boca Grove as we collaborate on the long-term plans that will further provide members with the lifestyle they expect when joining a top-tier club and community.”
