Turtle Dunes Country Club Opens in Acapulco

Representing Mexico's newest golf experience

(Scottsdale, Ariz.) - Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development, and marketing, announced the opening of Mexico's newest golf experience - Turtle Dunes Country Club located within the master-planned community of Princess Diamante in Acapulco.

Turtle Dunes is an exclusive, full-service country club located on the grounds of the iconic Fairmont Acapulco Princess and The Fairmont Pierre Marques. The club's new 18-hole golf course, world-class resort clubhouse, state-of-the-art fitness center, and the world's only Lorena Ochoa Golf Academy are set to reestablish the property as the foremost golf destination in Mexico.

"The opening of Turtle Dunes Country Club comes with much anticipation," said Jim Bellington, Troon's senior vice president, operations and development. "Combining the new championship-style golf course with unmatched amenities and superior customer service positions this property as the most desirable golf destination in the region."

Accessible only to members, and guests of The Fairmont Acapulco Princess and The Fairmont Pierre Marques, Turtle Dunes is a 7,250-yard gem set within a lush tropical sanctuary, featuring expansive water features and aged, towering parota trees that frame several holes. Designed by golf course architect Tripp Davis, special attention was directed at restoring the heritage of the site by recreating the rolling sand dunes that once defined the landscape. The finished project has not only created a uniquely beautiful experience for golfers, it also marks the historic return of an environment where a variety of sea turtles once nested and flourished.

Turtle Dunes and the surrounding development have been created to provide a sense of community with facilities and activities devoted to the entire family. The clubhouse includes a beach club, restaurant, large event lawn for private parties and special events, and luxurious men's and women's locker rooms. The fitness center has a full range of equipment and plans exist for a pool with private cabanas and a social ballroom. Tennis and paddle courts are also part of this complex as well as a children's activity and educational center.

Turtle Dunes is currently in the founding-member phase, offering 100 founder Diamante memberships and 100 founder Pearl memberships. After the founder Diamante and Pearl memberships are sold out, memberships will only be available only to those who own real estate in Princess Diamante. The founding-member phase is the only opportunity for people living outside Princess Diamante to acquire a Turtle Dunes membership.
