The La Quinta, Calif. property includes a championship Rees Jones golf course and a full array of recreational and dining amenities. The current management team will be retained to ensure a smooth ownership transition from T.D. Desert Development L.P., a subsidiary of the Drummond Company.
On October 19th, Sunrise Company announced its acquisition of Andalusia Country Club in La Quinta, Calif. The purchase includes the club, the remaining residential land (with space for approximately 250 more homes) and other real estate assets, including undeveloped property, from T.D. Desert Development L.P, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Drummond Company.
Inspired by the spirit and architecture of the Andalusia region of southern Spain, Andalusia Country Club boasts a championship Rees Jones golf course, nine spectacular lakes, grand views of the neighboring Santa Rosa Mountains and a spectrum of homes. The club offers a wide array of golf, fitness, tennis, pickleball and dining amenities, along with a full calendar of social and recreational events for members to enjoy.
Andalusia Country Club, LLC., a Sunrise-related company formed for Andalusia, will be the owner/operator of the club. Andalusia Homes, Inc., another Sunrise-related company, will manage the sales and homebuilding operations for the remaining real estate, and will assume the developer-appointed director positions on the Homeowners’ Association. All Andalusia employees, including the management team of Nolan Sparks, Dale Campbell and John Cummings, will be retained to ensure a smooth transition between Drummond and Sunrise management.
Other Sunrise Company properties in the Coachella Valley include Toscana Country Club, currently under development, and the completed communities of Indian Ridge Country Club, Palm Valley Country Club, The Lakes Country Club, Monterey Country Club, Rancho Las Palmas Country Club and Sunrise Country Club. Sunrise also co-developed the Desert Springs JW Marriott Resort & Spa, PGA West and Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa.
“Andalusia Country Club is one of the finest country club communities in the desert, and Sunrise Company is one of the desert region’s most respected luxury golf course community developers, so it was a perfect fit for us,” said Randall Bone, Chief Executive Officer of Sunrise Company. “Adding Andalusia to our portfolio allows us the opportunity to have a significant presence in La Quinta again. It is exciting to see what is happening in the thriving La Quinta market, and to be a part of the continued growth and success of the city.”
“Sunrise Company is committed to working together with the current club members, homeowners and employees to create a club and community experience that honors the past traditions of the Drummond family, and encourages a vibrant and energetic future,” Bone added. “We look forward to playing an integral role in the next chapter of Andalusia Country Club.”
