- (11/12/2004) Southbridge HOA President Jim Riley has made the following announcement:

Phenita just informed me that KSI just provided us with a signed copy of the agreement on use of the golf course / county club facilities that I previously circulated to you.  To refresh your memories, the long and short of it is that Southbridge and Harbor Station residents will both have equal privileges regarding the course and facilities -- same discount on club membership, same discount on daily greens fees, same preferred tee time status, same 30-day preview window time frame to join before membership is offered to the general public. 
We are now OFFICIALLY a golf community.  Below are two links, one to the Nicklaus site and the other to the Harbor Station page about the golf course and club.  We should start promoting these links prominently whenever and wherever we can.
Here is some text that we can use, slightly modified from the Harbor Station web site version:

Southbridge on the Potomac residents will enjoy special privileges at a championship 18-hole Signature course designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus located in its sister community of Harbor Station. After two years of work, design for the Nicklaus course is complete, with construction expected to begin in late 2004. Partial play will begin in 2006 and the course will be open to full play in 2007. "We will take great care to design a course that takes advantage of this spectacular waterfront location, with its town center and open spaces," said Nicklaus. "This has the potential to be a very special golf course, and one our organization, and most important, the people who play the course, will be proud of in the end."

Here's a link about the hotel and conference center that they just announced for Harbor Station, too.  This one actually has some drawings of it. http://www.pwcecondev.org/default.asp?section=5&subsection=16&ID=171&sidebar=off
Also, I just checked out the Lake Manassas web site.  They've got some good ideas that we might be able to adapt for our web site.  http://www.lakemanassas.com  I think that our site still has more to it, but I like the way that they do some things like "Area Highlights," "Gallery," etc.  I really like their color scheme and use of photos, too, and hope that we can emulate that on ours.
