January 30, 2012

If the success of the first Floyd Cup Challenge is any indication, next yearâs 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 Palmâs unparalleled amenities âAll of the players were blown away by the condition of the course, our facilities, the food, and the hospitality throughout the event,â says Bud Taylor, Old Palmâs Director of Golf. âRaymond Floyd was here representing the club and that really made an impression.â Besides the two rounds of golf, the…

Many of us overlook the importance of correct posture in our haste to hit the golf ball.  But good posture in an athletic position is the starting point with which you swing the club Without a proper set-up, you canât maximize your effort To ensure that your posture is correct it is important to know where your feet, knees, arms and spine should be in relation to one another. This picture shows that proper posture is achieved when a vertical line can be formed from the top of your spine, running inside of the elbows, across the front of your knees and through the balls of your feet. Any other posture than this will force you to make compensations during your swing to strike the ball well. This in itself will lead to less consistency in your ball striking. So make sure your posture is correct before you even…

Our Ashford model takes two-story homes to a new level
January 25, 2012

As one of the newest model homes in the Grand Estates neighborhood in Old Palm Golf Club, the Ashford makes quite a statement. Built by Hasey Construction, the magnificent, 6,394-square-foot estate home boasts five bedrooms, six full baths, two half baths, a club room, and a loft thatâs accessible by stairs or elevator. The split floor plan is truly inspired, but what really sets the Ashford apart is how beautifully the indoors flows into the outdoors From the foyer, your eye just naturally carries through the living room and out to the swimming pool, open cabana and fountain beyond. The atmosphere is classic Palm Beach; especially in the way the pool is tucked so closely to the home. The pool is so essential to the design that it can be seen from multiple rooms and five sets of doors open on to it. The Decorators Unlimited designed the interiors…

Our service goes above and beyond, and then even further
January 24, 2012

Our staff will do about anything for the residents of Old Palm Golf Club, and last month we had the opportunity to really show how helpful we can be. It started with Old Palmâs sales team, who arranged for a couple from the Northeast to lease a home here for the season Rather than fly in with several months worth of luggage, for convenience the couple shipped their clothes to the sales office. Everything was then delivered to their home, so it would be waiting for the coupleâs arrival on New Yearâs Eve. We even stocked the refrigerator with essentials, so they wouldnât have to rush out for groceries But our hospitality didnât end there. We invited the couple to that nightâs New Yearâs Eve celebration at the Club, and the staff there made sure they were warmly welcomed. Members were told that…
