Founded in 1994 by Michael S. Meldman, Discovery Land Company specializes in building luxury residential private club communities and resorts throughout North America. We have grown to be the premier player in the high-end resort residential niche with 20 world-class projects in our portfolio. Our communities are distinct with their own architectural styles, world-class amenities, and high levels of service.


We don’t build buildings, but rather we build settings where families can create intergenerational memories and enrich their lives in exquisite and untouched sanctuaries. These settings offer a casual and comfortable sense of community through outstanding clubhouses, premier golf courses, welcoming staff, world-class culinary offerings, and outdoor pursuits. To ease and enrich your experiences, Discovery holds itself to the highest of service standards. Every decision we make is driven by one fundamental objective: to make the time you spend with the people you care about most not merely enjoyable, but memorable.

I was drawn to largely untouched and peaceful places where I could connect with my boys – places where I could introduce them to the outdoors and introduce the outdoors to all of us. I wanted to create fun and intimate destinations where they wanted to spend time with me and in turn someday do the same with their kids. The things they learned at a young age – from skiing to hiking to surfing – they grew to love as adults.
