S P R I N G 2 0 1 5 | The LandReport 61 LANDREPORT.COM It's clear that Stephen Myers has achieved his goal of creating memories for himself, his family, and a select group of other like- minded families on a great piece of property, one whose highest and best use just happens to be world-class hunting. Roughly half of Pine Creek's 2,400 acres is set aside for shooting sports, and that has long- lasting implications. Considerable care is given to managing the wetlands and enhancing the food plots that fan out from the residential portion of the club, which includes 43 cabins, 24 gentleman's ranches of 40 acres or more, and facilties such as the lodge, the horse barn, and the club offices. Thousands of acres of grassy terrain spread out in every direction with sprawling motts of live oak, sabal palm, and loblolly pine throughout. As with any potential land investment, neighbors are of immense importance. Not surprisingly, Pine Creek boasts patient neighbors whose priorities mimic those of Myers and his fellow members. Reynolds hopes that the next owner of Castaway Ranch shares those same values. "It's such an amazing piece of property, an ideal long-term hold for the patient investor or a multi-generational family." A final membership bonus comes courtesy of the Golden Bear's golf course design team. A state-of-the-art synthetic putting green, involving the design expertise of Nicklaus Design, awaits golfers just steps away from the patio of the ranch-style lodge. Says Jack Nicklaus, "Steve has a great place at Pine Creek." A timeless tradition perfected at Pine Creek: the pointing dogs do the finding (above), and the retrievers do the fetching (below).
