Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Old Palm Golf Club is a 650-acre (260 ha) private residential golf community with an equity club located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, United States. The community was founded in 2004 by WCI, but in September 2010 was purchased by real estate investment group Clarion Partners.

Old Palm Golf Club adheres to the vision of John D. MacArthur, whose original plan for Palm Beach Gardens was to create a "garden city", with streets lined with flowers and trees.

Geographical area

The subdivision is bordered on the south by PGA Boulevard, on the east by Central Boulevard, and on the west by Florida's Turnpike.

Country club

Raymond Floyd's late wife, Maria Floyd, worked closely with interior designers Scott Snyder and Anthony Minichetti to create a distinct sense of place, with décor inspired by early-1900's architect Addison Mizner, the designer of Boca Raton and Palm Beach's Worth Avenue. The clubhouse is elegant yet comfortable and is built with organic construction materials, adorned with cypress ceilings and limestone flooring.

Average home prices

Home prices vary, but range from $1.2 million to over $15 million.
