Greg Norman at Willowbend during the 1996 Children’s Charity Pro-Am. 2 ISSUE ONE | ASPIRE ////////////////////////// / / //////////////////////// / / Willowbend commemorates 25 years, bridging past and present with a continued legacy of community, class, and champions. Willowbend has always drawn a crowd. Since its opening 25 years, ago, the club has seen a constant influx of celebrity golfers, Hollywood A-listers, and professional athletes from nearly every international sport. And Greg Norman was certainly no exception. Norman was a longtime supporter of the former Willowbend Children’s Charity Pro-Am, as witnessed in this photo from the 1996 event. The famous Australian has become almost as well known for his impressive philanthropic endeavors as he has for his killer swing. As Willowbend celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2017, pro-ams and special charitable events remain central to Southworth Development’s growing legacy. “We inspire both community and connection with an ongoing roster of year-round events and club gatherings at all of our properties,” says Southworth Development Founder and CEO David Southworth. “As we celebrate Willowbend’s 25th anniversary and look ahead to our next 25 years as a company, you can rest assured that family and community will continue to be at the heart of our mission.” ASPIRE | ISSUE ONE 3
