On Friday, May 10, the Carl M. Freeman Companies broke ground for the new Clubhouse and restaurant to be built at Bayside Resort Golf Club, celebrating with community members and the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce.
“I think this golf clubhouse is going to be the pièce de résistance of Bayside,” said Michelle Freeman, president and CEO of Carl M. Freeman Companies. Freeman described the clubhouse as a gathering place for community members, adding, “I think that, quite frankly, is what life is about. You can work a lot and work hard, but I also think that the moments of life when you can stop and share something with family and friends are the most important.”
The Clubhouse will feature a new restaurant, to be called Signatures. Freeman explained the meaning of the restaurant’s name, which is intended to honor her late husband, Joshua M. Freeman.
“Every single time Josh Freeman played golf, he would take the ball and mark who he was playing with and then he would put the date on that ball,” explained Freeman. “A few months ago, my kids and I were going through some of Josh’s things, and we found boxes of balls. Written on them were the people who played, the date and the time. And all of those folks’ signatures marked a moment in time that made my husband happy.”
All of Josh Freeman’s marked golf balls will be displayed in the clubhouse — a place, Michelle Freeman said, where the community will celebrate life and create lasting memories.
