    Be & Belong

decidedly different
Private Clubs


At Southworth, we’re not interested in extravagance for its own sake. For us, real luxury is in the little moments. An invigorating morning of restorative yoga. A round of world-class golf with lifelong friends. A sun-soaked day on the water. An afternoon of endless exploration. Here the living’s always easy because we focus on what matters most. We develop, own and operate our clubs with purpose, passion, and a steadfast belief in creating a true sense of place and belonging. Sanctuaries you never want to leave. And memories you never want to forget.

Southworth is a collection of connected communities that are authentic to their unique settings and rich in people and experiences. Places that welcome you with open arms where you can just be…& belong.
