Welcome Home to GroveWood

Posted by: Peyton Davidson in Neighborhoods, Videos
 

GroveWood has a sense of arrival that feels like a warm hug for residents of this King & Bear community in World Golf Village. Traveling the serene four miles from the King & Bear entrance to the “Welcome to GroveWood” sign is the perfect way to relax after a long day at work. As a GroveWood resident myself, I know first hand that as you take in the community’s natural beauty, you find yourself unwinding and feeling calm and centered.  Come along with me and Davidson Realty’s new construction expert, Jennifer Todd, as we explore the family-friendly streets and the buzz of new home construction in GroveWood.

Ben became his mentor and gave him lessons on the game of golf. At the crossroads of Dan’s golf ability – Ben wanted him to achieve more and tried to coax him to commit to the game. Dan, a bit frustrated with his swing, told Ben, “I just want to be a sportswriter – I’ve always wanted to be a sportswriter”.
