If the success of the first Floyd Cup Challenge is any indication, next year’s event at Old Palm Golf Club will be one of the most anticipated golf outings ever. The 2012 Floyd Cup Challenge was held from January 22 through January 24 and instantly sold out, drawing 19 foursomes from around the country. Each foursome was made up of a club pro and three members from his club, who came to play two competitive rounds on our Raymond Floyd-designed golf course, practice at our spectacular Golf Studio, and enjoy Old Palm’s unparalleled amenities. “All of the players were blown away by the condition of the course, our facilities, the food, and the hospitality throughout the event,” says Bud Taylor, Old Palm’s Director of Golf. “Raymond Floyd was here representing the club and that really made an impression.” Besides the two rounds of golf, the players enjoyed all sorts of other entertainment. There were cocktail parties, dinners at various venues, the chance to watch the NFC Championship Football game in a model home in our Custom Estates neighborhood, and a challenging golf skills competition. In one of the skills events, the players tried to break a small pane of glass set up about 30 yards away. They each had three attempts to chip the ball into the glass, but only three of the 76 players succeeded. Amazingly, one golfer did it twice in a row. The Inaugural Floyd Cup Challenge was such a success that we expect to see many of the same players at Old Palm again next year—hopefully, as residents and members.  See more photos of the event on our Facebook page.
