  • The Southworth Difference

Benefit from Our Experience

Southworth is a privately held developer and operator of exceptional club communities across the globe. Headquartered in Boston, with key team members strategically located all over the world, for 35 years our mission has been to deliver extraordinary experiences in private club environments. Whether it’s creating an elevated Bahamian sanctuary or the most sustainable golf course on sacred Scotland coastline, our development approach is deliberate and intentional. From creating the infrastructure of a community to making it vibrant and engaging, our knowledge set, best practices and defined process support everything we do.

Plan of The Cays Site


We are an involved developer from initial concepts to final touches. Our team has a deep understanding and years of experience in permitting and entitlements, financial analysis, master planning, use cases and more. Our teams build rapport with local entities to ensure a seamless development experience that is aligned with the community goals and values in which we are developing.

OPERATIONAL Intelligence

Our investments begin with the end in mind—how they will operate, grow and thrive. A healthy operation strategy is where all the concepts and planning intersect with the residents and members served. This makes the difference between “building a community” and “building community.”

TEAM Approach

We are the sum of our parts when it comes to human capital. We hire team members with deep expertise, including unique skills in construction, development, community planning, brand, sales and marketing, F&B, retail and hospitality. These functions and more are vertically aligned, so we can think about our communities holistically and engage in true “placemaking.”

Our choice of projects that we undertake is deliberate and conservative. We practice a high level of due diligence when considering additions to our portfolio, seeking special assets in markets where we believe there is opportunity for long-term growth. We look at our portfolio through a global lens, and any new core investments must add value and enhance our current community collection.

Our Core Competencies

Our journey to become a leader in the development and operation of best-in-class, highly amenitized private club communities has helped inform our evolution as a company. Identifying and fostering human capital and building a vertically integrated team is just one key to our history of success. We create spaces that can be intelligently activated allowing us to drive referrals and sales through our unparalleled programming that goes far beyond your typical club events. That, combined with a conservative, long-term approach to finding special assets in key markets, and our commitment to never building and running sets us apart in the market. And while our reputation is important, the confidence of our members and residents who choose Southworth as a trusted curator of the communities they call home is our greatest compliment.
