Maria Garcia Izquierdo

Golf Operations Manager, Costa Navarino, Messinia, Greece

I was born in Seville, Spain, next to a golf course designed by Olazabal, and I feel like my life choices always seem to bring me back to one. Growing up and moving to Ireland, I was getting prepared for the perfect opportunity. And after nearly a decade, I had the opportunity to move to Costa Navarino in Greece; it was a hole-in-one type opportunity for me to combine tourism and golf and it’s been an amazing experience. Costa Navarino is an incredibly enchanting resort, full of cultural and warm hospitality and some stunning golf course views! And now our resort is going to add another of Olazabal’s vision. It is like my memories from home have guided me to my new Mediterranean home and after 4 years in Messinia, I can undoubtedly say that I am a proud part of the story of Costa Navarino and Troon Family.
