Guests enjoy a different golf experience

March 16, 2012

It didn’t take long for non-members guests at our recent Men’s Guest golf outing to realize that playing at Old Palm Golf Club is an experience unlike any other. For starters, the legendary Raymond Floyd designed our course to beautifully complement the land’s natural contours. The front nine features wide fairways so it plays like a classic open Florida layout, and the back nine has a North Carolina feel as the fairways are carved out of dense stands of pine trees. Most Many of the guests in that participated in the event belong to other private clubs in the Palm Beaches, and they all agreed that Old Palm offers a golf experience that is truly unique. The difference also extends into our Club experience after the round, where the 60 or so golfers gathered for hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and lunch was also set apart. What really struck the guests was the wonderful intimacy of the rooms. Unlike conventional clubhouses designed with unnaturally large, impersonal rooms, the Club at Old Palm feels more like a home. It’s elegant and sophisticated, but not in the least bit stuffy. Like the Old Palm golf course, our Club has its own inimitable style. It only makes sense—the design was heavily influenced by Raymond Floyd’s wife, Maria Floyd.
