South Carolina Lowcountry is a popular place for golfers. The area is full of fun and challenging golf courses. Here are a few of the top courses to visit:
– The Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes. Once known as Tradition National, the 250-acre Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes cleverly incorporates the lakes and wetlands of the area. The course uniquely features five tee placements, ranging from 4,955 yards to 6,650 yards and allows multiple pin positions, so even average golfers can enjoy a variety of experiences.
– Old South Golf Links. Designed by award-winning golf course architect Clyde Johnston, this course feature tall oak trees, tee boxes in the woods, and Scotland-inspired terrain.
– Hilton Head National Golf Club. This 300-acre course was designed by famous golfer Gary Player, who sought to develop a course that was challenging for low-handicap players yet entertaining for high-handicap players. The course offers more than 6700 yards and has a slope rating of 131.
Jaguar Land Rover
Financial professional Geoff Block started RLB Squared, LLC in 2013 and overseas the firm’s property holdings alongside his family investments. During Geoff Block’s tenure, RLB partnered with real estate investment firm The Becker Organization to acquire Sharp Plaza, a key piece of commercial real estate in Mahwah, New Jersey. Today, the building is the site of the new Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) headquarters.
Earlier this year, the JLR group celebrated the opening of its new 144,000-square-foot North American main headquarters and training and development center. The $30 million construction project added substantial square footage as well as a product research facility. The new complex has nearly 500 workstations and 78 collaborative workspaces to accommodate 400 of JLR’s New Jersey-based employees.
The building also has a large showroom, displaying many of the car company’s latest models. The new headquarters is a reflection of JLR’s success in the North American market. Since being acquired and restructured by global holding company Tata, Land Rover sales have risen by 171 percent and Jaguar’s are up over 300 percent.
