/ /////// /////////////////////////////////////// C EO < LETTER DEAR FRIENDS, As my Cape Cod summer home, Willowbend, celebrates its 25th anniversary, I’m reminded of why I first fell in love with the property that now embraces today’s incredible community. I arrived at Willowbend in 1991, before there was even a clubhouse. Where there was just the beginnings of a golf course, now there’s a vibrant community. Though the club and its surroundings have evolved, our vision for both Willowbend and our other Southworth Development properties remains the same—an authentic celebration of life. In today’s fast-paced world, time has become the ultimate luxury. And while our residents, members, and guests appreciate well-appointed villas, homes, and guest 8 rooms, by design each Southworth community is meticulously developed to foster connections and to help people make the most of time spent with family and friends. Those who we live and travel with, and those we choose to have by our side during milestone moments, define “the good life.” My hope is that we continually enable lifelong memories. As I experienced this year’s annual Creighton Farms Invitational, I was also reminded of the power of philanthropy. Trailblazers such as Jack and Barbara Nicklaus are truly moving the needle, and Willowbend’s 2016 Honoree, Bobby Orr, is another example of someone who chooses to help others quietly—under the radar— because that’s what giving is all about. In continuing to build on our legacy, 2017 will be marked by the inaugural Great Abaco Classic, to be held January 19-25 at The Abaco Club on Winding Bay—my favorite stretch of beach in the entire world! During this much-anticipated new Web.com Tour event, pro golfers, members, guests, kids, and grandparents will all find common ground in The Bahamas. Friendly competition will take top billing. But ultimately, what this event will embrace is the perfect pairing of natural beauty, community, and elevated living. As we present to you the debut issue of ASPIRE Magazine, my hope is that within these pages you’ll aspire to connection, celebration, and inspired living. Enjoy the read!
