Many things come to our mind when we hear Costa Rica except golf. It is not a big surprise since there are only 8 golf clubs in this country.
One of them is Reserva Conchal Golf club and Beach Club. 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.
Three things make Conchal Golf Club and Beach Club (opened in 1997) noteworthy for me:
- Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed the golf course. Design style: parkland. Course type: resort. It is a 7,029-yard, par 71 course. The golf course is in line with Costa Rica’s strict preservation requirements.
- Audubon International-certified golf course. This program monitors 6 areas: Environmental planning, Wildlife and habitat management, Chemical usage reduction and safety, Water conservation, Water quality management, Outreach and education.
- Troon. It has been selected to manage Reserva Conchal Golf Club and Beach Club. Troon International will oversee the golf, beach club and food & beverage operations as well golf course agronomy and club marketing.
Reserva Conchal Golf Club and Beach Club is owned by Florida Ice and Farm Company (FIFCO) since 2007.
Reserva Conchal Golf Club and Beach Club also includes two resort properties:
- The W Hotel Reserva Conchal by Marriott (opened in November 2018). This is the brand’s first hotel in Costa Rica and Central America. It has got 150 locally influenced rooms.
- The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal (opened in 2011).
- Both resort properties provide guests with golf club access.
The W Hotel brand is one of Marriott‘s luxury brands. It is marketed towards a younger age group (e.g. Millennials).
At the W Hotel Reserva Conchal with the Marriott mobile application you will be able to:
- Search & book,
- Check-in and out with your mobile,
- Send requests for services like shampoo, soap, shaving kit…or even skipping housekipping…
Over the past year, Reserva Conchal Golf Club and Beach Club invested over $1 million to install a state-of-the-art irrigation system with AI data to prevent leaking and overwatering.
