To have a life that's worth living.
What is Linkside's story? We want you to know "What is Linkside?" Plus, we want you to know the "Why" behind Linkside. Linkside began with the inspiration of founder, Bob Hurdle, a real estate developer and Columbia, Mo. native. Bob recognized the need for beautiful, well-built and uniquely-designed homes. Homes that align well with the changing priorities of older adults. Following graduation from RBHS and MU, Bob relocated to California, and founded ADCO, a construction business. ADCO grew to over 500 employees and was recognized as an industry leader. At the pinnacle of his success, Bob decided to sell the business and return to his home town. To bring his dream of Linkside to life.
Bob Hurdle is the developer. He is onsite every day, directing development efforts. Blake Hurdle is Bob’s son, and serves as project manager. Blake oversees construction and day-to-day operations. Susan Reeves is our community liaison. She manages the Homeowner's Association, and handles community relations and marketing efforts. In addition to the onsite team and professional groundskeepers, we've established a Concierge Vendor Network. This group of preferred vendors are available to assist you with everything from pet care to dry cleaning to handyman help, and more. You also have access to the staff at the Club at Old Hawthorne. The club has a general manager, membership director, executive chef, head golf professional, fitness director, tennis & pickleball director, and a private event manager. Truly, Linkside has thought of it all!
