Our Story

There's Something Special Here.

In 2020, Bright’s Creek began its newest chapter: a new direction where the club and member experience were re-examined and re-imagined, all under the guidance of Mark Lampert, Eddie Garcia, and Frank Blythe—three Bright’s Creek homeowners who have been actively involved in the community for years. Guided by the voices of our members, we’re shaping the future of Bright’s Creek to provide the best community experience imaginable. And there are many more exciting updates to come.
