In the early 1950s as the Highlands area grew in popularity, it became apparent that if you did not own property on the environs of the clubs there, that play on their golf courses would not continue to be available. Gene Howerdd Sr. was retiring from Georgia Pacific and decided to look for property to build a golf course community nearby.


Our staff has soul and style. You can taste it in every dish we serve.  Chef Johannes's utilizes his creative culinary skills with a seasonal menu that debuts the freshest flavors around. Our staff works hard to make sure you have a warm and inviting experience, each time you visit us!
