sur Mer Update
April 3, 2008
Ginn sur Mer on Grand Bahama Island is ahead of schedule according to the development team in a recent article from the Freeport News published on February 1, 2008. "We put up $160 million in cash that's sitting in an account to take any question out of the minds of people of how committed we are to the community (Ginn sur Mer)," Bobby Ginn stated in the article.
The monies he is referring to allow for the completion of the following components at Ginn sur Mer:
Arnold Palmer Signature Course:
The first of two championship courses to be designed at Ginn sur Mer
Main roadways through the community to include water, sewer and paved roads
Front gate into the community
First phase of the Grand Canal
First phase of the Palace, the main focal point of the club community
The Ginn development team is pushing hard to prepare the site for the anticipated home and condominium construction which will start late in 2008.
Ginn Golf Course Update
Arnold Palmer's signature design at Ginn sur Mer is coming to life with over six holes shaped. As of today, the 14th hole also includes a tremendous amount of landscaping, and holes 15 and 16 are preparing to add landscaping later in April.
"We are planning to turn this place green this spring," says the golf construction team. Starting this spring, the plan is to ship over sod on barges from the States to Ginn sur Mer for four golf holes; 14, 15, 16 and 17.
This one effort to go GREEN will bring Ginn sur Mer to life and one step closer to realizing this epic community.
