Belfair is booming! The brisk real estate market in Belfair has continued through the summer of 2014. While home sales have increased homesite sales have slowed with the selection of premium lots shrinking, however, new home construction has been steady over the past 24 months with new homes breaking ground every day. Currently, there are thirteen homes under the review process with twenty-four homes in various stages of construction. Belfair now has 485 homes completed which translates to 66% build out for the community.
Social activity in Belfair continues through the summer with the Fourth of July BBQ & golf tournament, Camp Belfair for the children, Margaritaville Party, Lobster Night and so much more. The 2014 Summer Reciprocal Dining and Golf Program is in effect which offers the members the opportunity to enjoy many of the areas private golf courses throughout the summer. If exploring is your choice you will enjoy the old southern charm of historic Old Town Bluffton near the May River with a variety of Bluffton Boutiques, creative art galleries, a large selection of restaurants with outdoor dining and the weekly Farmers Market all just minutes away.
It gives us great pleasure to announce that Belfair has been selected as one of only 75 clubs and residential communities in the country to be awarded The Distinguished Emerald Club of the World Award. This recognition is the result of a rigorous nomination and selection process by BoardRoom Magazine, the voice of the private club industry. After Belfair’s nomination, there was a site visit evaluating many areas of the club’s operations. After numerous visits to the club that included interviews of the staff a proprietary ratings system was used to nominate the clubs that provided exceptional member experience.
This recognition is a tribute to David Porter, Belfair CCM General Manager and his exemplary staff. Other residential country clubs that have received this honor include Boca West Country Club, Bonita Bay Club, Spring Island and the Club at Carlton Woods just to name a few.
In addition to Belfair's selection, the magazine also honored Executive Chef Bruce Christiansen, Food and Beverage Director Millie Grimes, Marketing and Membership Director Nicki Jacoby, Director of Golf Course Maintenance Ken Lee and Director of Golf James Swift. Congratulations and thank you for making Belfair such a special place.
