Select past Projects

It was over 30 years ago when David Southworth joined forces with Paul Fireman, of Reebok International fame, and Willowbend Development was born. Willowbend’s first project was its namesake private club on Cape Cod. The company quickly grew to create many other renowned new clubs, resorts, and communities around the world—including Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Scotland, The Bahamas, and across the United States. Below are a few of those projects that are a proud and important part of our history as a company that has grown from an individual club project on Cape Cod to an internationally recognized leader in the industry.
