Every day of the year, the HPR team shares information about our clients with the outside world. And very often, when we come up for air from immersion in the worlds of golf, spas, high-end resorts, and communities, we realize that we’ve learned some things from our travels and tribulations that we want to share, as well. So whenever we are enlightened, amused, maddened, or otherwise touched, we will let you know in this blog.
Yes, stop and smell the tacos … or taste the tequila … or both. On-the-course eateries are raising the bar these days. At Whistling Rock Country Club in South Korea, a tea house finishes each of the three nines. Quivira Los Cabos offers several “comfort stations” that feature full bars and hot, freshly made local specialties. Medinah Country Club has a roving food truck (purchased from the Texas Rangers) and at Cowboys Golf Club in Dallas food and non-alcoholic beverages are included in the green fee.
Speaking of views, the awe-inspiring Quivira Los Cabos boasts two lighthouses (one at 700 feet above sea level and the second high atop the 14th hole), while Bayonne Golf Club’s lighthouse is an architectural feature of its stunning clubhouse…with downtown Manhattan views that will distract and inspire.
Hole locations with views and … water, water, water. We’ve got ’em everywhere — from the spectacular 17th at the acclaimed new Danzante Bay Golf Club (Baja California), to the fabulous 12th hole at Manele (Lanai, Hawaii). Be on the lookout for a renovated Great Waters course (coming in Fall 2019 to Reynolds Lake Oconee, Georgia) and the debut of Hogs Head in Waterville, Ireland, this spring.

We have the client roster and creative ideas to fit your needs. Need more ideas? Check out our Hunter News. 2018 buzz words: Experiential. Personalized. Custom.
HPR’s clients offer an incredible range of culinary options—from burgers and cotton candy to 15-course dinners. We cover the whole table…the soon-to-be-famous Crush Burger at Arcis golf courses across the country, Mission Inn’s all-you-can-inhale seafood buffet every Friday night in their golf clubhouse, the cotton candy finale in the Linger Longer Steakhouse at Reynolds Lake Oconee, and, not to be outdone, the 15-course dinner in Nobu at the Four Seasons Lanai. If we’re making you hungry, we can sate that appetite.
We’ll get you on the right track with newly unveiled short courses and practice areas that hone skills and make practice fun. Check out the “Quick Six” at the Preserve Course, Reynolds Lake Oconee; The Ridge 9 at Hunt Valley CC in Maryland; the Putting Park at Boot Ranch near Fredericksburg, Texas; the 12-hole course and Jim McLean Golf School at Red Ledges in Utah; and the indoor simulators at Golf & Body NYC.
Four Seasons Resort Lanai in Hawaii and The Towers at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica in Los Cabos, Mexico, offer star-gazing packages. In fact, the Los Cabos package includes a personal astronomer. Meanwhile, we’ll be on hand for another type of star-gazing at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, keeping tabs on celebrities like Mark Wahlberg, Carson Daly, Josh Duhamel, Chris O’Donnell and Kelly Rohrbach. (We’ll keep a lookout for “Dirty Harry,” too.)
For years, Bob Hyer was an avid golfer always on the lookout to play a course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. In 2013 Hyer heard about an RTJII course in Eagle Point, Ore. – which Jones designed, built and owned when it opened in 1996. Hyer not only played it, he bought the place. “There was always something about his courses that felt like a special experience,” said Hyer, a successful financial planner from Vancouver, Wash., and now owner of The Resort at Eagle Point, which he operates with wife Chana, along with Patrick Oropallo, who doubles as head […]
