Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf and Beach Resort, the top golf resort in Puerto Rico, has unveiled a new golf leadership team for the Rio Mar Country Club —  along with a variety of new golf offerings and noteworthy developments for 2022. 

The Rio Mar Country Club has enlisted a broad new management team, including new PGA Head Golf Professional & Director of Instruction, Brandon Roseth; Membership Sales and Communications Manager, Wilmarie Montijo Polo; Membership Concierge, Jeysha Geliga; Golf Course Superintendent, Brigido Miguel; and Assistant Golf Course Superintendent, Sean Wilt. 

These new hires join Seth Henrich, PGA General Manager, Country Club Operations.

The golf experience has been further enhanced for 2022 with a fleet of new 2022 Club Car Golf Carts, featuring Visage GPS, the property told Caribbean Journal.

Additional upcoming enhancement projects include irrigation system renovations for both the Ocean Course and the River Course and updates to the club’s technology system.

Food and beverage offerings for golfers are also being upgraded, with a new menu at Iguanas Cocina Puertorriqueña, which serves Puerto Rican flavors overlooking the golf courses. 

New menu items include a selection of tapas-style appetizers for groups including Mofongo & Kan-Kan, mini traditional plantain mofongos with pork belly chop in garlic and molasses and Gambas al Barrilito, a garlic shrimp dish with Barrilito rum and lemon sauce. 

Rio Mar offers two championship golf courses, managed by Troon Golf, the leader in golf club management. 

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Mameyes River and El Yunque National Forest, these sprawling 18-hole courses showcase views from every tee. 

The 6,716-yard Ocean Course, designed by award-winning golf course architects Tom and George Fazio, features a legendary 16th hole, considered one of the best in the Caribbean. 

Nearby, the 6,945-yard River Course, designed by two-time senior champion Greg Norman, features open greens, wide fairways, light rough and shallow bunkers, ideal for all golf levels.

Guests can also practice their golf skills on the driving range with chip and putting areas or sharpen their skills with PGA Professional led clinics and private lessons. 

The 35,00-square-foot clubhouse features new locker rooms, innovative food and beverage and a refined pro shop.
