The Old Course, designed by Arnold Palmer in 1973, weaves through parkland, finishing on one of the highest ranked golf holes in the world. Joe DiMaggio was often seen playing the Old with Pro Emeritus Moon Mullins, who’s also teed up alongside entertainment legends Willie Mays, Evel Knievel, Jackie Gleason, and Bob Hope. The Ocean Course, a true links layout with an authentic Scottish soul, is perched on a bluff overlooking an awe-inspiring stretch of the Pacific.

Skycrest Village

Entitlements, Design, General Contractor, Sales & Marketing

This 5-acre retail shopping center site in San Bruno features a successful and locally popular grocery store, but the rest of the center has suffered for many years with severely underperforming, in-line retail. The existing ownership partnered with Kenmark to redevelop the site with single family homes and a vibrant grocery store. Now in the final stages of the approval process, Kenmark anticipates construction to begin on 27 homes in 2006. This project will ultimately provide the community with much needed housing, and create financial incentives to allow the grocery store to continue its operations at this location for many years, visit skycrest.com.
