Coral Gables, Florida, United States: Troon has been selected to manage Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club. Established in 1990, Deering Bay is a private, member-owned club.
Located on the southern tip of scenic Coral Gables on the shores of Biscayne Bay, Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club features South Florida’s only Arnold Palmer-designed, bayfront golf course. The par-71, 6,740-yard course meanders through mangrove forests and along scenic waterways.
“Deering Bay is a spectacular private club with a storied history,” said Ryan Walls, President, Troon Privé. “The golf course, clubhouse and yacht club are all gorgeous. The Troon Privé team will now look to further elevate Deering Bay’s service levels, agronomy standards and overall club operations.”
Deering Bay’s 30,000 square foot, Mediterranean architecture-inspired clubhouse includes two outstanding dining options as well as a patio terrace for al fresco dining.
In addition to dining and golf facilities, members and guests enjoy seven Har-Tru clay tennis courts, a fitness centre, yoga studio, junior Olympic-sized pool and social events for all ages. Within walking distance of the clubhouse are three private, deep-water marinas offering dockage space for vessels from 25 to 120 feet in length.
“We are excited to enter into this partnership with Troon,” said David Baron, Board President, Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club.
He added: “We spoke with a number of other private clubs around the country that have had great success working with Troon. We look forward to reaping the benefits of their experience in operating private clubs. In addition to Troon’s expertise in golf and dining operations, Deering Bay members are now eligible to participate in the Troon Privé Privilege programme which gives our members access to other Troon-managed private clubs around the world.”
Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club will be managed by Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
