Summer came and went in a blink and we’re already jumping into fall, even if the 90-degree temps say otherwise. It has been a busy summer here at Cordillera Ranch with several key new hires at the Club, and numerous other development projects kicking off and a few wrapping up.
As you read in the prior issue of Living, Marc DeWall has taken over as General Manager at the Club while Jeff Eldridge has settled in as the new Director of Agronomy for the Golf Course. The golf course continues to make great strides and has never been more lush in August – it’s coming into the prime fall golf season in perfect shape. Meanwhile, as you’ll read in this issue of the magazine, we are excited to announce the addition of Daren Johnson as the new Director of Golf Operations. You can read more in the Golf Section (page 46) about Daren’s impressive background, which spans places like Pine Valley, Mountain Top Golf Club and Adena Golf and Country Club, to name a few. He is looking forward to coming aboard after Labor Day and getting to know the membership over the coming months.
We wrapped up construction on the Springs of Cordillera Ranch Visitor Center and Springs Sports Park this summer and will be moving into the new Vista Office (Cordillera Ranch Visitor Center) in September. A few projects that broke ground this summer were the Lodges at Cordillera Ranch as well as the most recent release of Golf Frontage Estate Lots (Unit 207F) along hole #12, which will add the final section of golf frontage estates in Cordillera Ranch as well as some beautiful view home sites. Additionally, in September, the construction of Cordillera Ridge will begin (the hilltop where the existing Visitor Center is located), which will include 15 new premier hilltop estates (2 to 4+ acres) with expansive views across the Guadalupe River Valley and views to the south across the Cibolo Valley. Lastly, the new Golf Performance Center broke ground on the west end of the golf practice park, which will offer a state-of-the-art teaching academy where the acclaimed golf instructors at Cordillera Ranch can refine your game with the latest technology.
With all that’s happening around the ranch, it is no wonder that the summer seemed to be a blur. Take a moment to slow down and catch up in this issue of Cordillera Ranch Living.
