Living in Old Palm

We have rock and roll music to thank for the term “instant classic,” an oxymoron if there ever was one. But like a timeless melody, sometimes you just know that a place or thing – although quite new – is destined to be around for a very long while. Such a place is Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and you’re invited to have a look at what its residents believe to be enduring perfection in a luxury golf and country club lifestyle.

Old Palm Golf Club, while not for everyone, has fast become known around the world as one of the great places to call home for those whom fortune has smiled upon. Here you can play the game and revel in the comfort of simply being able to be who you are, surrounded by neighbors who are, not surprisingly, just like you. Like those fortunate few who have already recognized its specialness and purchased real estate in Old Palm, if you are now thinking about joining them, call the expert real estate professionals (and expert golfers!) of Frankel Realty Group for guidance and advice. We look forward to showing you around the incomparable luxury real estate for sale in Old Palm Golf Club.

Old Palm Golf Club is one of Palm Beach County’s newest golf communities, with recently built homes and new home sites currently still available. The club is limited to just 330 members, who occupy luxury dwellings on a beautiful expanse of 650 acres once owned by John D. MacArthur, who among other endeavors was the founder and early developer of today's Palm Beach Gardens. The magnificence of the homes for sale in Old Palm cannot be overstated, with residences priced from $1 million to $15 million, and with features and appointments befitting the setting.

Three Neighborhoods, Three Price Points, One Luxury Standard at Old Palm – Yours

Three neighborhoods comprise the residence choices at Old Palm – the Golf Estates, Grand Estates and Custom Estates. The Golf Estates collection of homes for sale at Old Palm range in size from 3,400 to over 5,000 square feet of living space set on about a quarter-acre site. Prices range from just over $1 million to nearly $3 million. The Grand Estate homes for sale at Old Palm run from approximately 4,800 to 7,000 square feet of living area, from approximately $3 million to just over $4 million and sit on about a half-acre. There would seem to be no limit on the size and price of the Custom Estates homes at Old Palm, with the wishes of the owner dictating both. However, Custom Estates homes at Old Palm average one full acre of property, can encompass 15,000 square feet in area, and cost as much as $15 million.

Honorary club chairman, the incomparable Raymond Floyd, is known for his piercing blue eyes and legendary “Rat Pack style” approach to life and golf takes the honors for his design of the unique course at Old Palm, a challenging yet eminently playable course set amidst native plant life and softly undulating hills. Depending on the skill of the golfer, the course runs from generous to tight, and rewards both the strategic player and high handicap player time and time again. Ray has always been his own man, as his friends and opponents will tell you, and that is what you, too, can be at Old Palm.

There is great comfort and joy in just being yourself here, as all residents soon learn. Did we mention that there are no tee times here? Well, there aren't. A limited number of members at Old Palm is the reason why. And don't be surprised if you see A-listers from the PGA tour around the Old Palm grounds. Many of them live here, and call Old Palm their home course.

Ah, the Old Palm Clubhouse!

After a round, retire to the clubhouse and revel in the iconic architectural style of Addison Mizner, creator of Worth Avenue on Palm Beach Island, among many other notable projects. This 43,000 square foot beauty is a study in oxymoronic contrasts – comfortable chic, traditionally modern and casually luxurious all come to mind.  You'll simply have to see it to understand its blend of homey intimacy and worldly sophistication. Here you will find four dining venues to suit your every fancy, from grill to gourmet and everything in between. Meals can even be prepared for you and delivered to your front door, the ultimate in savory service and convenience.

The clubhouse is where you will find classically sumptuous men's and women's lounges and locker rooms, private spa treatment suites for head to toe pampering, a salon for women, and a barbershop for men, with all the traditional hairdressing services available. This is also the place to indulge in the exercise of your choice – yoga, Pilates, free weights, bikes, treadmills and ellipticals, Zumba and personal trainers, for the serious fitness devotee. There is even exercise training available specifically developed for golfers, so there's no excuse not to improve your game. Combine this amenity with the 33-acre Golf Studio featuring all the technological tools available today to make yourself a better player, and you can't help but come out ahead at Old Palm. There is nothing like the golf training and instruction at Old Palm anywhere else in the world.

In the final analysis, the supreme convenience of living in Palm Beach Gardens — close to the ocean and its myriad delights; shopping choices as the mood strikes; and transportation options that include air, land and sea; are often the deciding factors when people decide to move to Old Palm. The fact that you can be as active as you choose, enjoy social events that mirror your tastes and interests, and an exclusivity that bears repeating, when combined with fun and friendly membership are the factors that will help you make your decision.
