Hawk Pointe Golf Club
Hawk Pointe is committed to preserving New Jersey’s
lush green trees, wildlife and pre-revolutionary
history which is unmatched in the tri-state region.
This commitment has brought Hawk Pointe to where
it is today.
Richard Cotton, a lifelong resident of Warren
County and managing partner of Hawk Pointe Community had a
vision for a parcel of land located off of Route 31 in Washington,
New Jersey. Previous plans for the land called for a vast housing
development which would have had adverse effects on the surround
areas. However, Richard Cotton’s vision was to create
a balance between open space and development. His plan was
to transform a 325-acre parcel of land into a self-sustaining,
land-based planning project which would benefit local, rural
communities and not damage the delicate environmental balance
or the significance of the land.
The project would provide a minimum of 80% open
space in some form of parks or recreation. The project would
also create local jobs and put in place the many sustainable
initiatives. Other initiatives would follow including wildlife
conservation, historical preservation, and alternative energy.
In 2000, the plan called for an 18-hole championship
golf course, which would be called Hawk Pointe Golf Club. While
a typical golf course only requires 150 acres to design and
build a golf course, Hawk Pointe incorporated 250 acres of
rolling hills and lush tree lines. The reason behind this concept
was to respect the open space, the wetlands, the historical
features of the land while not disturbing the neighborhoods
surrounding the space.
Hawk Pointe would become known as a multi-generational
place where families could gather and play, meet, or spend
time together. Hawk Pointe Golf Club is a private, non-equity
facility which fosters a sense of community among Members and
