Troon Golf has been selected to manage La Quinta Golf & Country Club in the Costa del Sol just outside Marbella, Spain. La Quinta Golf & Country Club features 27 holes designed by golf course architect Manolo Pinero. Each course is integrated into the natural surroundings with panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Sierra Blanca mountain range that surrounds the valley. Three nine-hole courses share similar characteristics of sloping fairways and deep bunkers. While La Quinta Golf Resort is home to a myriad of amenities, plans are currently being finalized for a substantial course renovation to begin in 2009.
Other changes include the appointment of the new Director General, Scott Evans, along with Antonio Pineda, the new Golf Course Superintendent. Evans’ resumé features leadership and General Manager positions at several highly acclaimed golf clubs in Dubai and England, including Bearwood Lakes in London. Pineda brings valued agronomic experience to the club after working at three well-known golf courses in Spain. Most recently, Pineda served as the project manager and Agronomy Director at a facility previously managed by Troon Golf in Estepona, Spain.
