  • Reserval Conchal Troon

Troon has been selected to manage Reserva Conchal Golf Club and Beach Club in Costa Rica’s northern province of Guanacaste. Troon International will oversee the golf, beach club and food and beverage operations as well golf course agronomy and club marketing. 

Reserva Conchal is an exclusive beach, golf and equestrian community spread out over 2,300 acres along Costa Rica’s Pacific coastline. The community has approximately 2,000 residences. Developed on a former cattle ranch, the mixed-use development focuses on an ecofriendly use of the property, restoring a vast majority of the land stripped bare for cattle. 

Reserva Conchal Golf Club features a Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed golf course that opened for play in 1997. The 7,029-yard, par 71 course meanders through the rolling coastal terrain, offering ocean views on several holes. 

Reserva Conchal also includes two resort properties, the W Hotel Reserva Conchal by Marriott, opened in 2018, and The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal, opened in 2011. Both resort properties provide guests with golf club access.

“Reserva Conchal is an absolutely incredible property set along Costa Rica’s spectacular coastline,” said Ricardo Catarino, vice president, operations, Troon. “We are thrilled to be working with the outstanding ownership group as we look to further elevate the member, resident and guest experiences at both the golf club and beach club.” 

Reserva Conchal is owned by Florida Ice and Farm Co. (FIFCO). Since acquiring the mixed-used development in 2007, the 105-year-old Costa Rican beverage corporation has guided Reserva Conchal using its triple bottom line strategy: financial, social and environmental sustainability are valued equally. 

“Reserva Conchal’s goal is to deliver premiere and unique experiences at our amenity facilities for our community and guests, and that is why we have decided to do it through partnerships with professional, best-in-class, international management companies such as Troon,” said Helmuth Sauter, Director of Reserva Concha.
