Dear Kelly,

I wanted to let you know just how much I appreciate your work on the Hawk Pointe project.

Your ability to convey your ideas with such confidence and passion made my experience with an unfamiliar project comfortable.  I have tremendous respect for your design abilities and your attention to detail.  Your were able to create something really spectacular out of a piece of property that was special to me.  In the long run, I believe Hawk Pointe will grow to be a truly classic.

Now that you know how much I appreciate you professionally, I also wanted you to know how much I value our personal friendship.  It is not very often that good friends are encountered during business dealings.  I would not even consider doing another golf course project without you.

Your friend,

Richard Cotton

Dear Kelly:

As "The Hideout" is about to open, I wanted to take some time to thank you for the job you and your employees did in making this the golf club of our dreams.

As I ride around the course and look at the clubhouse and other facilities that were constructed, I think back and remember that less than a year ago I would have been in an orange grove and thicket of trees.  You have done a remarkable job in less than a year.  You'll be amazed when you see the finished project.  You have a lot to be proud of!

Thank you again for all your efforts.

Dear Kelly:

Our season is almost over and the two holes that were re-built last summer have come through with flying colors.  I want to take a moment and let you know what a pleasure it was working with you last year.  I realize how difficult it is to re-design an existing golf hole especially when all the parties involved have ideas of their own.

Your attention to details in the scope of work was especially impressive to me.  As you are well aware it is not always easy to expect the contractor to understand what the architect or clients wants and needs are.  However, in your detailed description of the scope of work for our project our contractor knew exactly what needed to be done and was able to follow the plan almost to the letter.

Equally impressive is your understanding of shot value as it pertains to every level of golfer.  A lot of architects today seem to only have the touring professional in mind when they design their courses.

Thank you again for all your hard work and the wonderful attitude you had for our project.

To Whom It May Concern:

Mr. Kelly Blake Moran was employed by my company from 1984 to 1995.  During that period Kelly steadily advanced from an intern fresh out of school, to a lead project architect and then to a partner in the firm.  Kelly is a reasonable and creative person who possesses a solid work ethic and is the totall professional in this highly specialized business.  His foreign assignments were often difficult, measured by the convenience of U.S. standards, and his experience included projects located in Mexico, the Caribbean, South America, and in the United States.

Without question, I know that Kelly Moran can deliver to his client a premiere, world class golf course and it will be accomplished on time and on budget.
