Trump Int'l Situated in the quaint village of Rio Grande only twenty minutes from the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, Trump International Residences and Golf Club is spread over one thousand lush acres on the Atlantic Ocean.

Positioned at the foothills of the world famous El Yunque Rainforest, the property's setting provides its residences with one of the most eco-diverse attractions in the world. This landmark residential community will represent a new standard of design for world competition and a luxurious environment.

With an investment of over $600 million, this development will be the first of its kind on the island and throughout the Caribbean and will showcase 500 luxurious residences at its completion. The first residents will become part of the Founders Club, an exclusive community that will allow its residents to enjoy superb benefits, including preferred tee times and access to elite services such as a private jet, helicopter and limousine service.

In addition, the project will feature a vast array of residences from condominiums to estate homes, with price ranges from the $600's to $5 million.

Trump International Residences and Golf Club also includes The Beach Club, which offers an array of amenities and facilities for both adults and children including beautiful views of the ocean, an international gourmet restaurant and outdoor cafe, indoor and outdoor bars, an intimate first class spa, state-of-the art fitness centers, tennis courts, a fully-equipped business center, glistening swimming pools, and various water sports. Children will also enjoy the never-ending activities to choose from such as a kids club with pool and sports area.

For this prestigious development, the Trump Organization has partnered with Empresas Diaz, Inc. who is the construction conglomerate in Puerto Rico. Sold exclusively through International Sales Group; for sales information, please contact 1-877- 4 TRUMP5 or visit www.TrumpGolfClubPuertoRico.com.


Special Event at The Cliffs Keowee Springs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dream Home @ The Cliffs Keowee Sp Renowned golf designer Tom Fazio and famed Australian golf coaches Steve Bann and Dale Lynch will be on hand for the grand opening of the Keowee Springs Golf Course and The International Institute of Golf, September 5-7, 2008.

The Cliffs has planned a spectacular weekend for guests, including an intimate discussion with Tom Fazio, personal golf instruction by two of the game's leading teachers, and private tours of America's First Luxury Family Wellness Retreat.

Golf Real Estate OnLine newsletter subscribers are invited for the unveiling of Tom Fazio's second creation at The Cliffs and will also have the chance to visit Golf Magazine's 2008 Dream House, a world-class residence set alongside one of the world's great golf courses.

As the June edition of GOLF Magazine explains, this golfer's dream house is now a reality. Slated to open this September at The Cliffs at Keowee Springs, the 2008 GOLF Magazine Dream House, a 5,000 square-foot residence, is a masterpiece of design and desire, combining all the natural amenities of The Cliffs at Keowee Springs with the competitive allure of a Tom Fazio golf course.

Aside from the spacious interiors and open covered porches, each overlooking a hole of the course, the 2008 GOLF Magazine Dream House features a 350-square foot Full Swing golf simulator, enabling hours of play on the world's best golf courses - all from the comfort of home. Allora, LLC, a Grenville-based luxury homebuilder, designed the home and broke ground in the Fall of last year.

Beginning in September, you will have the opportunity to tour the Dream House on select weekends. To make a priority reservation for the Keowee Springs golf course opening or to learn more about the GOLF Magazine Dream House, visit www.discoverkeoweesprings.com.

Currahee Club Welcomes Lonnie Eberhard, CCM as General Manager
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lonnie Eberhard, CCM, has joined Currahee Club as its general manager, bringing with him more than 20 years of leadership experience in private club management. Eberhard will oversee all Currahee Club golf club and Property Owners Association operations.

Eberhard's zeal for southern hospitality and superior service is evident by his extensive experience with some of the region's top private communities and board positions. Eberhard's resume includes service as the 2004 president of the Florida Club Managers Association (CMA) and various executive roles with the Florida Restaurant Association (FRA). Before joining Currahee Club, Eberhard held positions with Audubon Country Club in Naples, Fla., before being named the club's general manager. Eberhard began his career at Island Country Club in Marco Island, Fla., where he was appointed to general manager at age 28. Previously home to golf legend Gene Sarazen, Island Country Club benefited from Eberhard's vision and attention to detail for 13 years. These opportunities at top-shelf clubs have culled Eberhard's keen ability to offer refined five-star service, exceed financial goals and provide a one-of-a-kind experience for members.

"The Whitley's [Currahee Club developers] stellar reputation from coastal Florida to Hilton Head Island to the Piedmont Driving Club in the heart of Atlanta secured my interest in this opportunity," said Eberhard. "Currahee Club's reign as a preeminent national golf and lifestyle community is just beginning."

Eberhard is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys sharing his love for adventure with his family. He and his wife of 20 years, Susan, have two sons, ages 13 and 15. His favorite activities include fishing, kayaking and picnicking with his family.

Eberhard is a 1987 graduate of Ashland University in Ohio, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a major in Hotel & Restaurant Management.
