The headline of Michael Bamberger's column on golf.com was as colorful as the resort community itself --"In Palm Beach, a 95-year-old classic on 80 acres represents the best hope for the future of golf." Can you think of a better compliment? The post ran with an image, above, taken by David Walberg of the Palm Beach Country Club. It was a positive article with a stunning photograph. Is golf in Palm Beach as legendary as its reputation? In a word: yes. There are a great many excellent clubs, and here are some highlights.
- The Palm Beach Country Club was designed by Donald Ross 95 years ago. As Bamberger notes, it is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west.
- The Bear's Club was founded by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus and includes estate-style concierge services.
- The Everglades Club has a course that was designed by Seth Raynor and opened in 1932.
- The Seminole Golf Club was lauded by Travel & Leisure Magazine.
