Golf at Old Palm Golf Club isn’t just a game; it’s an experience.

Palm Beach Post- December 16, 2011- Playing golf at Old Palm Golf Club is an experience that’s truly unmatched anywhere in the Palm Beaches. You can tell the difference the moment you step on the first tee at Old Palm, starting with the fact that members can play whenever they like, as there is a no tee time policy, even during the height of the season. Designed by PGA Hall of Fame golfer Raymond Floyd, who also serves as Honorary Club Chairman, the course was carved out of the natural terrain so carefully that the Audubon Society deemed it a Gold Signature Sanctuary to reflect Old Palm’s stewardship of the land. The front nine features wide fairways in a classic Florida style; the back nine has the feel of a North Carolina course with the holes beautifully framed by stands of towering pines. In the tradition of Scottish courses, there is even a 19th or “bye” hole, a devilish Par 3 next to the Club where golfers can settle post-round wagers. To help members play their best, caddies are on hand for guidance and advice. Then, there is the Golf Studio, a separate practice facility unlike any other. Sprawling over 33 acres, it offers a multitude of facilities to improve every aspect of your game, including a double-tiered, double-ended driving range and three full-length holes that are as manicured and challenging as those on the 18-hole course. The Golf Studio also features cutting-edge, digital technologies such as a V1 Swing Analysis System that records your swing from every conceivable angle to clearly pinpoint ways to improve it. Similarly, the SAM PuttLab uses ultrasound to analyze the 28 most important parameters of the putting stroke. Of course, nothing can substitute for the trained eye of a professional golf instructor, and two of the very best are at Old Palm. Director of Golf and PGA Master Professional Bud Taylor is just as exceptional at overseeing Old Palm’s teaching programs and tournaments and Mark Hackett was voted one of the Top 100 Teachers in America out of the 28,000 members of the PGA of America. Playing golf at Old Palm is an exceptional experience on so many levels, and that passion for excellence and going above and beyond 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 Club’s 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 temporarily house their guests in sumptuously appointed suites. Old Palm Golf Club stands alone as the premier private Club community in the Palm Beaches, with estate homes ranging in price from $1.5 million to more than $15 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 jet airplanes. In 2010, a group of international investors lead by Clarion Development Ventures III acquired Old Palm, further strengthening the community’s financial security and stability.
