There is a sense of welcome as each member drives past the guardhouse and through the wrought-iron gates at Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens. This is more than a private golf club community. Old Palm Golf Club provides an atmosphere of coming home. As members of Old Palm Golf Club enter through the gates, they arrive at a private enclave; to gracious surroundings; to a magnificent golf course; to a clubhouse where enjoyable dining, invigorating exercise, serene massages and interesting friends await. It is a private community of only 330 members, with residences that are spectacular. A trio of neighborhoods offers distinctive and gracious homes, each luxurious. Golf Estates homes open to beautiful courtyards, with views from within the Spanish-inspired homes of verdant landscaping, a meandering lagoon, and private pools and spas. Each Golf Estates residence provides 3,500 to 5,000 square feet of air-conditioned living space, offering comfort for families and their guests. On half-acre home sites, Grand Estate homes average 6,000 square feet, with entertaining areas that link both the indoors and outdoors of the home. Gorgeous master suites offer privacy while expansive kitchens and comfortable family rooms provide everyone in the family with their own private space. And the comfort doesn't end indoors in the Grand Estate homes. Outside are covered lanais and loggias; refreshing swimming pools and spas; and views of the golf course, preserves or water features. Custom Estates residences are as unique as the desires of the homeowners themselves. Each of these creatively designed residences has been constructed by an outstanding building and designed by an architect who works closely with the individual family. The residences are resplendent, with master suites featuring room-size double walk-in closet and his-and-her private baths; wine rooms adjacent to dining rooms that can seat 20; double-island kitchens, perfect for catered evenings at home; and media rooms, where family and friends can enjoy the latest film or their favorite college football team. And when these homeowners step out of their residences, they are surrounded by the exquisite beauty of verdant landscaping, natural preserves and the golf course designed by legend Raymond Floyd. Here, members may play without a tee time. This is the golf course with the legendary “bye” hole, the 19th; and the Golf Studio, where a combination of a dual-ended driving range and golf-analysis technology can help any player enjoy the game to its fullest. Homeowners can join their neighbors at the clubhouse, which sits on a bluff overlooking the golf course and the 650 acres that constitute Old Palm Golf Club. Within the clubhouse, with its fountain entrance and intimate scale, are both formal and informal dining spaces. These include the Grill Room and its brick pizza oven – a favorite with parents, children and grandchildren alike. The ladies’ and men’s lounges – each is different, yet spacious – provide room for socializing, private massage areas, and a hair and nail salon. They are a testament to Old Palm’s dedication to pampering and luxury. The Fitness Center offers a variety of exercise opportunities, including Cybex equipment; a Pilates studio; cardio equipment; and personal trainers to develop an individual wellness, diet and exercise program. Concierge services are available to all members of Old Palm Golf Club, and with only 330 members, each one is guaranteed individual attention, whether they are planning an in-home event for a cadre of friends or ordering tickets to a favorite show at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
