Members get in the swing with Ping
March 30, 2015

Every golfer’s swing differs in some aspect, so it’s only natural that golfers prefer different brands and models of clubs. Hitting balls with a certain type of club is the best way to see if you like it or not. To introduce our members to the latest G30 line of clubs from Ping, Old Palm recently held at Demo Day at the Golf Studio.

During the four-hour session, all of the G30 clubs were available to hit— irons, hybrids, fairway woods and drivers. Each club has different attributes. For instance, the drivers feature Turbulator Technology in the crown to help generate faster club head speed and ball velocity for longer, more accurate tee shots. Irons have a thin face to optimize launch conditions and generate faster ball speeds, ensuring maximum distance and control to consistently knock balls close.

If members liked the clubs enough to buy them, Ping

February 04, 2015

Dozens of Old Palm members gathered at the Club recently to watch Super Bowl XLIX. Following a pre-game tailgate party, they then gathered around the Big Screen TVs for the game and to enjoy a bountiful spread of dishes synonymous with New England and Seattle. They dined on New England Firehouse Chili, Ten-Spice Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Pikeâs Place Market Salmon and Seattle Coffee-Rubbed Pulled Pork, just to name of few of the favorites Many of Old Palmâs members wore team jerseys as they rooted for the Patriots and the Seahawks. The game lived up to its hype as the score went back and forth. New England took an early lead and the Seahawks tied it up at half time. The second half was just as exciting as the score see-sawed It looked like Seattle was going to win in the final seconds, until a goal-line interception ensured a…

Meals are always spectacular at the Club at Old Palm, but weekend dinners often take on an even more special flair. Executive Chef Jason Soule makes sure that the menus are inventive and that they include a variety of dishes suited to every imaginable taste For instance, Chef Soule kicked off a recent weekend with a Friday Night menu that Old Palm members found tantalizing. Appetizers included Molasses Barbecue Quail and Sesame Seared Tuna. There was a fine selection of garden-fresh salads, and entrees ran the gamut from juicy Cowboy Spiced Delmonico Steak to Citrus Grilled Swordfish to hearty Forest Mushroom Pappardelle. How appropriate that the Italian word âpappardelleâ means âeat hungrily,â which is exactly how members enjoyed this dish of broad, flat pasta The dinner on the following Sunday was just as savory. Prime New York Strip Steaks, thick Tenderloins and succulent Atlantic Salmon and were grilled…
