The purchase includes 770 acres of undeveloped land that can accommodate significant residential and commercial development.
LStar is partnering with the McConnell Golf to oversee management of golf and club operations at the Members Club at Grande Dunes, Ocean Club at Grande Dunes and the Anchor Café.
“We are immensely proud be the new owners of Grande Dunes and look forward to working with the property owners and city officials to enhance its reputation and value as the Southeast’s unparalleled waterfront residential community,” said Kyle Corkum, managing partner, LStar Management. “Our focus from day one will be to employ a long-term strategy for visionary growth that seeks to increase the value and reputation of the community while providing the finest standards of customer service for our members and guests.”
“As our company enters its second decade, we could not imagine a better first partner than LStar, nor a more quality-first client than Grande Dunes,” said John McConnell, President and CEO, McConnell Golf. “We plan on taking a different and unique approach when offering our services compared to some other golf or club management companies. First, we are very selective in choosing projects, we have tons of talent working for our clubs that we can redeploy and we can make decisions very fast. Adding seven private clubs to our portfolio over the past six years taught us to be flexible and spot efficiencies, while adding back value to our membership in an overwhelming way.”
