Fit to a Tee: Tour Elite Call Old Palm Golf Club Home
Dozens of PGA Tour players have chosen to call the small stretch of the Sunshine State between Jupiter and West Palm Beach home in recent years. The world’s most exclusive golf address provides a convenient location to lessen the burden of a demanding tour schedule and an opportunity to practice 52 weeks a year in the warm Florida sunshine. It comes as no surprise that three of the world’s top ranked players – No. 8 Lee Westwood, Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and Masters champion Charl Schwartzel – have decided to relocate to the area as well. When tasked with selecting an exclusive, yet inviting golf enclave to make their full-time U.S. residence, the International Sports Management players had plenty of options. However, one community, impeccably located off PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, set itself apart – Old Palm Golf Club.
The prestigious private club is now home to Lee, Louis and Charl and their families while they are state-side for PGA Tour events. They utilize Old Palm’s 7,400-yard, Raymond Floyd-designed golf course and world-renowned 33-acre Golf Studio practice facility to sharpen all facets of their game. One of the most complete golf instruction and training facilities in the U.S., the Old Palm Golf Studio anchors a spacious double-ended range, TrackMan and V-1 equipped hitting bay, short-game area and three regulation practice holes – a par 3, 4, and 5 – on which golfers can replicate every shot and angle they encounter on the par-72 course.
Each has purchased homes at Old Palm citing world-class amenities, golf facilities and sense of community among residents and members. “Old Palm is the perfect living situation for me and my family, and the convenient Palm Beaches location is optimal for my PGA Tour schedule,” says Westwood. “The phenomenal practice facilities, coupled with the outstanding amenities and atmosphere, make Old Palm the perfect home for us.” Situated on 650-acres, Old Palm prides itself on the intimate character of the community with no more than 320 planned residences. The low-density masterplan allows for high, attentive levels of service, privacy and a relaxing lifestyle.
Of all the unique aspects of Old Palm Golf Club, the availability of one-acre home sites may be the most distinguishing feature. Old Palm is one of the only luxury golf club communities in the Palm Beaches offering new homes on one-acre estate home sites. Buyers can select from several model homes already built on one of these generously sized lots in the Custom Estates neighborhood, or simply purchase the land and then build the custom home of their dreams. South Florida’s most prestigious independent builders have recently crafted a spectrum of new models at Old Palm in a variety of styles to support an increase in demand. The Golf Estates neighborhood currently has six new model homes starting from $1.2 million and the Grand Estates features four new models starting from $2.2 million. With the addition of these new models, an extraordinary selection of homes is available in this sought-after niche of Palm Beach Gardens. All of Old Palm’s new models offer homebuyers luxury living in one of the world’s most golf-rich enclaves. An ideal place for a life well lived.
