Residential Revelation

An exclusive world of domestic and international residential club communities and resorts continues to change the way that people are viewing their homes away from home. That’s because Discovery Land Co. is intent on building more than just luxury destinations for its members. 

The focus is on building memories. 

The portfolio of 27 properties—spanning locations throughout the United States, as well as in Costa Rica, British Columbia, Portugal, Dominican Republic, Mexico, West Indies and the Bahamas—thoughtfully incorporates local architecture, culture and cuisine into its settings. Against those backdrops, families have access to an array of outdoor experiences and unparalleled amenities. 

“It’s like living at a 10-star resort, every day,” says Mike Meldman, who founded Discovery Land Co. in 1994. “People enjoy the lifestyle we put on. We’ve changed a lot of people’s lives, which is rewarding.” 

To become a member at Discovery Land Co., one must be a property owner. The challenge becomes choosing a community that best suits your family’s lifestyle—especially since so many of the properties offer something for everyone. 

Take Troubadour Golf & Field Club, just outside of Nashville, which boasts world-class dining from its own organic farm, live music at multiple venues in the community, a Tom Fazio-designed championship golf course, and family-friendly events throughout the year. Or Driftwood Golf & Ranch Club in Austin, set amid 800 acres of Texas Hill Country, with creeks, ponds and vineyards, and its own Tom Fazio-designed golf course. Or Baker’s Bay Golf & Ocean Club on Great Guena Cay, Bahamas (only 150 miles from the Florida coast), with its 6 miles of sugar-white sand beach, world-class spa, 200-slip marina, Caribbean cuisine, and, yes, a Tom Fazio-designed oceanfront golf course. 

“We make life less complicated, more convenient and more fun,” Meldman says.
