About Beacon Land Development


Beacon Land Development was founded by Michael Abbott, recognized as one of North America’s most innovative and respected developers and operators of high-end private clubs and luxury resort properties. Mr. Abbott founded Beacon to inspire people to break from their busy lives, live fully in the moment, and reconnect with friends and family while enjoying a specially curated experience.

As developers, Beacon’s mission is to create special places where “life happens.” As operators, Beacon provides families with unique amenities and services which bring out the distinctive essence of each location, delivering adventures and unforgettable fun for generations of members.

To meet these goals, Beacon Land Development has recruited a team of exceptional professionals, each with an impressive track record and broad range of experience. This enables Beacon to provide a complete suite of services from real estate development and sales to resort operations, golf management and member services. As a testament to Beacon’s success, its property, Bluejack National, near Houston, Texas, was named 2015 Development of the Year by Golf Inc.
