Queens Gap Purchased by Seven Falls Owner

Friday, August 14th, 2009

ASHEVILLE, NC – Queens Gap, a 3,350-acre master-planned community located 30 miles east of Asheville, North Carolina on I-40 near Rutherfordton, North Carolina, has a new ownership effective immediately. Devinshire Land Development, LLC, Queens Gap’s parent company, has been acquired by a company controlled by Keith Vinson. Queens Gap features a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and a number of world-class amenities including, a Wellness Pavilion, Outfitter’s Lodge, Equestrian Center, Tennis Complex, and miles of walking and hiking trails.

Tradition LLC, a management company owned by Vinson, will manage the construction and development of Queens Gap, along with the development of Seven Falls Golf & River Club located on more than 1,600 acres just 20 minutes from Asheville in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Seven Falls is home to the first Arnold Palmer Premier Club–featuring the 19-hole Arnold Palmer Premier championship course and the 60-acre practice campus that includes The Arnold Palmer Teaching Academy and its 9 practice holes, complete with USGA greens.

As the management company for Western North Carolina’s only golf and river clubs, Tradition will be able to efficiently manage construction progress and better utilize resources at the two developments. “At a time when many developments are on hold,” says Vinson, “Queen’s Gap and Seven Falls are moving forward with the community development construction. We are currently working on both properties, laying water lines, and building roads.”

What’s more, Seven Falls and Queens Gap are making a significant impact on the Western North Carolina economy by creating a number of jobs in both the construction and hospitality industries. Thanks to a sustainable construction timeline, progress is clearly visible in both communities. At Queen’s Gap, construction of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is set to begin this fall, while at Seven Falls the finishing touches are now being put on the precedent-setting Arnold Palmer Golf Academy that is scheduled to open this year.
