âIt was another spectacular year of sales,â says Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales at Old Palm Golf Club, in what may well be the understatement of the year. Sales were spectacularâand then someâ with 24 estate properties topping more than $62 million sold in 2012. All three neighborhoods in Old Palm enjoyed robust sales and an increased level of activity over 2011, demonstrating the selection of home designs, home sites and pricing had vast appeal. Old Palm attracted a variety of domestic and international homebuyers last year, including those who purchased new models ready for move-in, residences under construction, and one-acre home sites where they could build custom homes that reflected their every desire. Resales of existing homes were strong, as well. âHome sales were hotter than ever last year,â adds McGinnis. âOur independent builders have introduced several new home designs that have been attracting the attention of the most discerning homebuyers. Add to that an onsite brokerage exclusively dedicated to sales within Old Palm Golf Club, and a seasoned sales team who knows the community and its advantages better than anyone else. â Old Palm stands alone as the premier private Club community in the Palm Beaches, a distinction made possible because it is extraordinary on so many levels. Service throughout the community and Club is noticeably superior. The grounds are meticulously manicured, and the developer is firmly committed to maintaining and enhancing Old Palmâs exclusivity, privacy and phenomenal amenities. For instance, the greens on Old Palmâs magnificent Raymond Floyd-designed golf course were re-grassed in 2012 with TifEagle Bermuda creating truer and faster putting surfaces. Combine that course enhancement with Old Palmâs highly desirable âNo Tee Timeâ policy and unparalleled Golf Studio practice facilities, and the golf experience is unlike any other private Club community. Golf here is so remarkable, in fact, that several of the biggest stars on the PGA and European Tours now live at Old Palm. Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel and Lee Westwood have purchased property, and Darren Clarke is now a member and âregularâ at the Club. Old Palm is exceptional on so many levels, and that passion for excellence carries into the Club, a welcome blend of tradition and contemporary luxuries that feels like home. Designed to mirror the intimate scale of a Palm Beach estate, the Mediterranean-style Club encourages members to mingle in its casual, pleasantly understated atmosphere. Dining in the Clubâs four magnificent venues is as exquisite as it is friendly. The sense of comfort and conviviality just naturally extends into the Spa, Fitness Center and the Casitas adjacent to the Club where members can house their guests in sumptuously appointed suites. Old Palm Golf Club offers new estate homes ranging in price from $1.2 million to $12 million. It is ideally located in the heart of Palm Beach Gardens with close proximity to a wealth of luxuries and conveniences, including both Palm Beach International Airport and North County General Aviation Airport, which accommodates private aircraft. Old Palm is being developed by Clarion Partners, a leading real estate investment firm with over $25 billion in assets under management.
