Scottsdale, Ariz. (August 2, 2018) – Troon®, the leader in club management, development, and marketing, has been selected to oversee the daily operations at Santa Ana Country Club, a new, non-golf country club currently under development by Garnier & Garnier in San Jose, Costa Rica. The club will be operated by Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon.

Santa Ana Country Club is scheduled to open in the next six months and will provide members with exceptional food and beverage, aquatics, racquet sports, fitness and social connections. The club has allocated 90 percent of its property to green areas with 1.6 miles of trails for walking, running, or cycling; and a Dog Park. Santa Ana will include three swimming pools, including an eight-lane semi-Olympic pool; tennis, volleyball, squash, and soccer courts, as well as exclusive playgrounds and indoor areas for children and teenagers. In addition, the clubhouse will also feature two high-definition golf simulators, a putting green, and a 10,000 square-foot fitness and wellness facility with spinning, yoga, and Pilates, as well as a massage area. Plus, the club will include four environments for unique culinary experiences (a sports bar, a coffee bar, casual and formal restaurants), a business center and rooms for social events.

“Troon will bring a level of sophistication and professionalism to the day-to-day management and operation of the club that is unprecedented in the country,” said José Alvaro Jenkins, president of the Board of Directors of Club del  Valle del Oeste  (a group of investment partners).

Santa Ana Country Club will have all the characteristics of a high-end resort, in a healthy, safe and stimulating environment. The social and sports club will be a versatile solution for members to spend time with friends and family, enjoy varied cuisine, exercise, study, work or simply relax.

“From the first day we met with the Garnier & Garnier team, we identified with their vision focusing on wellness and an outstanding member experience,” said Bruce Glasco, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Troon. “We are excited to be part of Santa Ana Country Club from the early stages of development.”

As a Troon Privé-managed club, qualified Santa Ana Country Club members will enjoy access to extraordinary golf and lifestyle benefits around the world, including reciprocal access to other private clubs in the Troon Privé portfolio and tee times at Troon Golf-managed resort and daily facilities around the world through the Troon Advantage program.
