CLUB ACQUISITION COMPANY
Club Acquisition Company (CAC) was founded in 1994 by J. Patrick Butler. As a start up operation there were only a handful of employees sharing a small office and working towards acquiring a project called El Dorado Ranch located near the town of San Felipe, Baja Mexico. By May of 1994, CAC managed to purchase the Ranch. Over the next decade, the Ranch would emerge to become Northern Baja’s premiere real estate development, San Felipe’s biggest employer and economic contributor, and set a new standard for environmentally sensitive design.
In 2004, CAC became a 50 percent and managing partner in an upscale 816-acre property, Estrella del Mar
(EDM), located in Mazatlan, Mexico. CAC's partner at EDM is Paladin
Reality a firm with over $1 billion in real estate investment, much
of which is in Latin America. The property features 3.5 miles of pristine beaches on the Pacific Ocean and a signature Robert Trent Jones Jr. championship golf course. An estimated $1
billion is expected to be produced through this development.
CAC also expanded into the U.S. with a 50 percent interest in a 30,000 acre property, Hartsel Springs Ranch, located in Park County, Colorado. Hartsel Springs Ranch offers a variety of topography in a highland basin surrounded by Colorado’s highest mountains. Access to some of Colorado’s finest Gold Medal Water trout fishing, to Colorado’s famous mountains and ski resorts, and
a myriad of recreational activities are available.
An environmentally sensitive approach applies to all CAC developments. It is not uncommon for half the development to be set aside as green space. Alternative energy, wildlife preserves, environmentally friendly building and strict regulations are all part of the CAC development strategy.
Headquartered in Aurora, CO, CAC also has offices in Phoenix, AZ, and San Diego, CA as well as San Felipe
and Mexicali, Baja, Mexico, and Mazatlan, Mexico.
