Now that the Season has officially arrived in the Palm Beaches, the activities at Old Palm Golf Club are nonstop. There are celebrations, exuberant parties and entertaining activities day and night. Nowhere is this more evident than at the intimate Club, a veritable hub of the social scene.
âOur members are passionate about the Club and love participating in the activities at Old Palm, says Darlene Impellittiere, General Manager. âEach week, there is an abundance of social events, so no matter what our members are interested in there are plenty of options.â
For instance, Valentineâs Day is this weekend so the Club will host an exclusive, much-anticipated dinner dance for the occasion. Itâs always one of the Seasonâs loveliest affairs. Of course, there is a multitude of other social opportunities throughout the week.
Members often start their day at the Clubâs extraordinary fitness center, where classes might range from group Zumba to Pilates mat to TRX fitness, which uses suspension training for a total body workout. For those who prefer to follow their own schedules, the Spa within the Club beautifully accommodates with a variety of indulgent treatments that include massages, facials and salon services for men and women.
Wednesdays often have their own flair. This Wednesday, the Ladies Book Club will meet in the Clubâs inviting Womenâs Lounge to discuss Anthony Doerrâs bestseller âAll the Light We Cannot See.â Later in the day, members will gather for Pub Night, a light-hearted casual get-together that often spills onto the Event Lawn for some enthusiastic bungee jumping.
âOld Palm is the premier private Club community in the Palm Beaches, yet the atmosphere is anything but stuffy or reserved,â adds Impellittiere. âWhatever the occasion, first and foremost, itâs fun and even our newest members feel like family.â
Often, activities are created to coincide with local events. Last weekâs Pub Night featured a drawing for members to play with some of the PGA Tour golfers who will be in town for the upcoming Honda Classic. Itâs sure to be a thrill for the members to tee it up with the pros, and exclusive one-of-a-kind events like this have become a hallmark of Old Palm.
Golf is always a huge draw at Old Palm, as the communityâs spectacular golf course was designed by the legendary Raymond Floyd, who is also a member and Honorary Club Chairman. Weekend tournaments are frequent, giving members and their guests the chance to enjoy some friendly competition and win prizes. Formats include Scramble, Shamble, Stableford and Best Ball, so every tournament has its own character.Â Â
Indeed, Old Palm is exceptional throughout and epitomizes âLife Well-Lived.â The Club is 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. The dining venues and inspired menus are equally exquisite, yet without even a hint of stuffiness. The sense of comfort and conviviality naturally extends into the Spa, Fitness Center and Casitas adjacent to the Club, where members can house their guests in sumptuously appointed suites.
Old Palm is also synonymous with golf, a tribute to Old Palm resident Raymond Floyd who designed the magnificent 18-hole layout and its devilish 19th or bye hole. Floyd served as Vice Captain for the U.S. team in the 2014 Ryder Cup, as well. Another major draw for golfers is Old Palmâs Golf Studio, a remarkable practice area with indoor and outdoor facilities that allows them to replicate every shot that may be encountered on the course. A game-improvement enthusiastâs dream, the Golf Studio houses three practice holes, a double-ended range, V-1 equipped hitting bay with TrackMan technology, short game area and putting green.
Old Palm is ideally located in the heart of Palm Beach Gardens with close proximity to a wealth of luxuries and conveniences, including membersâ access to a private beach club.
Old Palm Golf Club stands alone as the premier private Club community in the Palm Beaches, with new estate homes ranging in price from $1.4 million to $15 million. Isle Estates, Old Palmâs newest neighborhood, recently opened and the response has been overwhelmingly positive for this new collection of coastal-style homes.
Additionally, Old Palm is near 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 more than $25 billion in assets under management.
