• • • Rather than following in others' footsteps, we have identified new market opportunities — creating needs, not just filling them. We have focused on quality rather than quantity. Generally, our properties embrace less than 1,000 acres which can be converted into a fully realized community within one real estate cycle. This sound operating principle has also enabled us to develop fully the original vision — to meet, and even exceed, the high expectations of those who purchase homesites.

• • • The result has been genuinely top-flight communities, an added sense of exclusivity, and brisk sales.

• • • We specialize in creating premier residential golf communities. Together with our partners, we have developed projects characterized by superb golf courses, outstanding clubhouses and an overall array of first-class amenities. We operate the golf clubs at these communities ourselves, because we believe it is critical to ensure that members and guests enjoy the best possible experience every time they play. Our close attention ensures this.

• • • While an impressive golf course and clubhouse are certainly focal points of our communities, we understand that a great golf/living experience extends well beyond the fairways. Every detail of the project must be well-executed and woven together seamlessly: neighborhood parks, landscaping, supervised architectural guidelines, signage, security, attentive staff members, everything.

• • • We know that by choosing a location that is naturally magnificent, our task is to connect every element of the community to its special setting, and create incomparable living and recreational opportunities within that environment. Thus, we have gone so far as to include grass and clay tennis courts, putting and par three courses, a wide variety of neighborhood parks, and even fishing ponds for kids.

• • • Furthermore, we realize that the natural environment is our palette. Protecting it, respecting it within sensitive zoning requirements creates a more beautiful place to live, as well as lasting value for the community. We know that the discriminating buyer recognizes such value and beauty, and particularly appreciates a golf course that blends into the existing environment rather than disrupting it.
