Heritage Harbour GC Shifting to Resort Property
Bradenton, Fl.–Residence Clubs International LLC has reached an agreement with Heritage Harbour Golf Club to develop approximately 76 paired villas and a 64 suite golf lodge as part of Heritage Harbour’s resort expansion project.
The expansion plan will create the only full-service Golf Resort experience in Manatee County, Florida. It will encompass two villa enclaves, a boutique lodge, corporate meeting and event spaces, a large resort-style pool and various other amenities.
“Heritage Harbour presents ResClubs with the opportunity to have a flagship property in Florida,” says ResClubs CEO Craig Shawn Williamson. “The growth in Manatee County over the last decade has created the reputation of the area being a top destination with so many things to offer visitors both here and abroad. Rarely do you find locations that offer great golf, both fresh water and deep-sea fishing, world-class beaches, exquisite culinary offerings, and luxury shopping. Heritage Harbour’s location is central to all of these activities being only minutes away and just off of I-75. It’s the perfect place to create a destination experience.”
“As the only vacation club that generates income for its members in addition to their vacation time, ResClubs are the only club membership that is an SEC-regulated security, and the only club with a provisional process patent driven by our newly launched syndication arm,” continued Williamson. “All enabled by our mobile app, we continue to carve out space as an innovator in the industry, We are new, small, but our team has close to 100 years of combined experience and are highly disciplined.”
“Adding Heritage Harbour, our two developments in Costa Rica, our project in Cartagena, Columbia and our South Florida development efforts, showcases our other skill-resort development,” says Williamson. “We built our program, aligned with international partners, adopted a data-driven modeling process and ran a successful beta test for ResClubs. This attracted the right investors like Allie Best Business. Now we offer 12-month to five-year investments to our growing investor base with annual returns up to 18%, all secured directly to the real estate. This is the right formula for sustained growth,” says Williamson, author of industry best-seller “Life as a Vacation” found on Amazon.
The ResClubs Villas at Heritage Harbour will be 1,500 sq. ft. in size and feature 3 bedrooms, full kitchens, great open spaces for guests to enjoy and include preferred golf course access for guests choosing short stays or long-term seasonal rentals. ResClubs Lodge at Heritage Harbour will feature 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suites.
Heritage Harbour GolfClub’s shift into a resort-style property will provide visitors not only golf but also include freshwater fishing in the nearby Manatee River, deep-sea fishing excursions in the Gulf of Mexico, shopping at Longboat Key and area malls, plus beach days to Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island and Lido Key.
“The relationship with ResClubs will serve as the centerpiece of our revitalization project,” says Mark Bruce, lead developer at Heritage Harbour. “Having lived in east Manatee County for 15 years I have witnessed the State Road 64 corridor landscape evolve into a vibrant place to live, work and play. Our project will make Heritage Harbour Golf Club a known and ideal destination that is right in the heart of all the excitement and convenience that Manatee County has to offer.”
As part of the revitalization, new amenities will be added including a resort-style pool with Bahama Bar, boutique spa services, corporate meeting space and virtual offices, outdoor game areas for volleyball, cornhole and table tennis. The existing Arthur Hills designed golf course will be fully renovated in the summer of 2022.
“The golf course has long been known for its fantastic layout and superior design that originally opened in 2001,” said Bruce. “The renovation will include new turfgrass for the greens, fairways and tee complexes, rebuilt bunkers, and technological improvements to the irrigation system.
