Old Palm Golf Club unleashes another Yappy Hour
January 16, 2015

Everyone had a doggone good time recently when Old Palm hosted Yappy Hour in lieu of Wednesday’s usual Pub Night at the Club. It was a fun-filled evening for residents and their fetching canines. Members enjoyed cocktails, a buffet dinner and great camaraderie. The dogs were given treats and free rein to socialize during the three-hour event. There were dogs of various breeds and sizes, but everyone got along perfectly, so don’t think the fur was flying. The Club usually holds Yappy Hour several times a year, even more often if hounded.

January 14, 2015

The latest selection for Old Palmâs Ladies Book Club is a winnerâliterally. âThe Goldfinch,â Donna Tarttâs third and most ambitious novel, won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was chosen one of the yearâs 10 best books by the editors of the âNew York Times Book Review.â The book clubâs ladies found the 774-page tome to be a great read âThe Goldfinchâ is an elegant meditation on love, memory and the haunting power of art.

A dog’s life? We should all be so lucky
April 22, 2014

[caption id="attachment_3524" align="alignleft" width="150"] Guests at the Old Palm Yappy Hour Event[/caption] Dogs are as much a part of the family as anyone. Maybe more. At least that’s how they’re treated at Old Palm Golf Club. Recently, the Club at Old Palm held a Yappy Hour for well-behaved dogs, and the canines were catered to like cherished members—which they are. Think Lifestyles of the Rich and Furry. During the festive affair, the dogs spent quality time socializing and noshing on treats before enjoying a leisurely dinner. Although the event lasted three hours, some of the pooches hounded their owners to leave a bit early. It was such a rousing success that Old Palm is sure to unleash another Yappy Hour sometime soon.
