Life revolves around the Club at Old Palm

February 15, 2013

Old Palm Golf Club is unlike any other private Club community in the Palm Beaches, a fact best expressed through the extraordinary lifestyle it offers residents. This is truly “Life Well-Lived,” and nowhere is that more evident than within the intimate Club, the very heart and soul of Old Palm. The Club’s timeless architecture and inviting interior design reflect the warmth and intimacy of a private estate. Pecky cypress ceilings, classic wool rugs and comfortable furnishings subtly enhance the ambiance. It’s a setting that encourages Old Palm’s members to engage in conversations and join in the nonstop activities. “The Club is always a hub of activity,” says Darlene Impellittiere, General Manager. “Our members get caught up in the excitement of our social events, and that enthusiasm carries over into every aspect of Club life. It’s rare for a community this exclusive and private to be so incredibly fun-loving and friendly, day in and day out.” The schedule of events is remarkable, especially during the season. Parties, luncheons and charitable gatherings are frequent occurrences. In the last month alone, the Club at Old Palm has hosted a sumptuous Seafood Night dinner for members, raised more than $10,000 at a luncheon for a YWCA/Harmony House of Palm Beach County charity, and set up bungee jumping on the Club’s event lawn, a rousing event that drew both kids and adults. Sometimes, the activities are group outings to nearby venues such as the Kravis Center, where Old Palm’s members recently enjoyed the opera “La Traviata.” “Our members can be as active and involved as they want,” adds Impellittiere. “Even if they don’t participate in the scheduled events, there’s plenty to enjoy on their own.” The Fitness Center at the Club offers countless options to stay in shape, and working out with the most advanced equipment is only part of it. Because golf is so integral to Old Palm, personal trainers are on hand to help members improve their games through golf-specific exercises. Others call on the trainers for body sculpting or core-strengthening Pilates instruction. There are also classes in everything from invigorating Zumba to muscle-toning ballet barre to water aerobics in the swimming pool. The Spa at Old Palm is just accommodating and offers a variety of services, including stress-relieving massages, aromatherapy body wraps and exuberant mineral scrubs. To ensure that residents look as good as they feel there’s an adjoining salon for men and women. Regardless of where Old Palm’s members find themselves, the thread of impeccable service follows. The Club’s concierge routinely arranges affairs like celebratory dinners in the private wine room. Indeed, all the Club team members take great pride in zealously fulfilling every imaginable desire, even anticipating them well in advance. Personalized service at this level is only feasible because membership at Old Palm will never exceed 330. Limited membership also allows for the No Tee Time policy on Old Palm’s Raymond Floyd-designed golf course, another wonderful site for activities such as tournaments or just a friendly game among members. Then, there are the unparalleled practice facilities at the Golf Studio, where golfers may take lessons from the PGA Teaching Professionals, including Top 100 Instructor, Old Palm’s Director of Instruction Mark Hackett to sharpen their skills on the range, and enjoy the rare luxury of three full-length practice holes, a Par 3, Par 4 and Par 5. “We work hand in hand with the Club to offer members endless golf events,” says Bud Taylor, Director of Golf. “We hold clinics for men and women, use advanced technologies to teach highly skilled players, and make sure kids have a great time when they start playing. It’s all about keeping our members engaged and offering services simply not found elsewhere.” Old Palm is exceptional on so many levels, and that passion for excellence carries into the three spectacular neighborhoods, where new estate homes range in price from $1.2 million to $12 million. Old Palm 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.
