The Texas Hill Country’s premier luxury and golf community, Cordillera Ranch in Boerne, has promoted Director of Golf Marc DeWall as its new General Manager. PGA Professional DeWall has been DoG since 2006 and a recipient of the Southern Texas PGA’s coveted Golf Professional of the Year award. Marc has been the catalyst behind Cordillera Ranch’s award-winning golf experience. During his tenure, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course was named Golf Course of the Year by the National Golf Course Owners Association in 2014. It has also been ranked in the top-7 in the annual Dallas Morning News Texas Golf rankings since 2009, including a fourth place in the 2018 poll.
“We’re thrilled to promote Marc to this well-deserved new position as General Manager,” says Charlie Hill, President & COO for DH Investments, the developer of Cordillera Ranch. “Marc is highly respected by our staff members, his industry peers and the many members who have gotten to know him. We are confident that his leadership and management skill will flourish in this new role as he leads Cordillera Ranch in the coming years.”
Prior to coming to Cordillera, DeWall was the Director of Golf at The Dominion Country Club, a premier private club in San Antonio. Throughout his illustrious career in the golf industry, Marc has served on numerous committees for the Southern Texas PGA and has been a two-time president. His understanding of the Cordillera Ranch culture and member expectations uniquely prepared him for the new position.
“Cordillera Ranch is a very special place and I have been fortunate to be a part of it since 2006,” says DeWall, who has worked in the private club industry for 30 years. “Mentoring individuals and growing talent both play a vital role in moving the club forward and I am proud of my track record in this area. I look forward to truly focusing on constantly elevating the member experience in all facets, and we have a great leadership team at Cordillera Ranch that I know is committed to do the same.”
Situated 30 minutes northwest of San Antonio, Cordillera Ranch is an 8,700 acre master-planned community boasting the Di Lusso(lock & leave)Villas, one to 10 plus acre estates, including valley-view, golf course, hilltop and Guadalupe River frontage home sites. Cordillera’s seven on-site resort style amenity clubs-Golf, Tennis and Swim, Spa and Athletic, Social, Rod and Gun, Equestrian and River- are all available under one membership. This trailblazing model continues to attract a wide array of buyers from Texas and around the United States.
The clubhouse at Cordillera Ranch was recently named the Most Beautiful Clubhouse in Texas by Architectural Digest. Community honors continue to roll in as well, as Where to Retire magazine named Cordillera Ranch one of the “50 Best Master-planned Communities in the U.S.,” and San Antonio Magazine tabbed it one of the best neighborhoods in the area.
The summer of 2007 ushered in the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Club into the awe-inspiring Texas Hill Country. On a spectacular piece of land at the Ranch a one of kind layout was fashioned. Early on Jack and the development team made a commitment to design a truly unique course-one that has become a classic in Texas. Rather than fronting homesites closely on both sides of the fairways, houses are nestled among acreage estates and hidden by rolling hills, live oak trees and native vegetation. A series of hilltops defines the perimeter of the course as it meanders through the natural landscape of the Guadaloupe River Valley below. Extraordinary water features present challenges, but are too beautiful to be called hazards. The par 3 sixteenth, which requires a skillful shot to a green framed by cascading waterfalls, has been ranked the most beautiful hole in Texas. The 7450 yard layout is one of the finest private courses in the Southwest.
The Ranch continues to grow at an impressive pace. Since its launch in 1997, nearly 800 homes have been built(with more than 1,200 lot sales). At final build-out, Cordillera will total approximately 2,500 homes and preserve almost 80% of the land in its natural Texas Hill Country state.
