Mosaic Clubs & Resorts takes over Rancho Viejo Resort & Country Club

Mosaic Clubs & Resorts has established a presence deep, deep in the heart of Texas.

The Alpharetta, Georgia-based firm has been retained to manage Rancho Viejo Resort & Country Club, a 1,400-acre private resort community in the Rio Grande Valley outside Brownsville, the southernmost city in the state. Rancho Viejo offers villas and other lodging, meeting space and a pair of golf courses, the nine-hole El Angel and the 18-hole El Diablo.

Mosaic, a recently established spin-off of Affiniti Golf Partners, was created to operate “the world’s most prestigious private and resort clubs.” These days, it also operates two properties in Georgia and one in South Carolina.

Mosaic will manage both the club and resort elements at Rancho Viejo, including lodging, dining, two golf courses and a golf academy, conference center, swim and tennis, fitness center and club member activities.

Whitney Crouse, Mosaic’s chairman, describes Rancho Viejo as a place of “renown, tropical beauty and enriched heritage.” It’s located in a part of the nation where golf can reportedly be played on 340 days a year. Rancho Viejo is located just outside Brownsville, Texas, at the southernmost point of the United States mainland.

Opened in 1971, Rancho Viejo’s two 18-hole golf courses, El Diablo and El Angel, are framed by resacas, the ancient waterways of the Rio Grande Delta. The championship courses have played host to several national-class competitions, including the PGA Tour Qualifying School, where elite golfers like Curtis Strange, Craig Stadler and Peter Jacobson vied to earn their Tour cards.

Also located on property are two dining facilities and a conference center with meeting and special occasion event rooms. Rancho Viejo’s swimming pool boasts a large waterfall and a sandy beach landing. Resort guests stay in 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom villas, offering the privacy of a conventional hotel room with all the amenities of a luxury home.

Mosaid was retained in January to manage the club at The Country Club of South Carolina, an award-winning 900-acre residential community located in Florence, S.C.

Opened in 1968, The Country Club of South Carolina boasts a 7,150-yard championship course designed by Ellis Maples.

“The Country Club of South Carolina has been a fixture of community life in Florence for nearly five decades,” Crouse said. “The Mosaic team is honored to play a role in ensuring the continuing success of the club.”

In addition to championship golf, amenities at Country Club of South Carolina include a 30,000 square foot clubhouse, multiple dining venues, a fitness center, junior Olympic pool, lighted tennis complex and multi-station playground.
