Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Just last week, Old Palm Golf Club resident Charl Schwartzel won the Nanshan China Masters. Schwartzel has been a resident of the exclusive golf community since last year, viewing it as the perfect setting for playing golf and relishing in all that the neighborhood has to offer.
The South African entered the final round three strokes behind Darren Clarke, another Old Palm member, and the defending champion Liang Wenchong, but he shot a 68 and won.
Schwartzel cites the course and practice facilities at Old Palm aiding in preparation for events like the Nanshan China Masters, which took place on Nanshan International’s Montgomerie Course. This is his third win since moving into Old Palm.
Fellow South African, Louis Oosthuizen and Lee Westwood, from England, also own homes in the Old Palm Golf Club. Old Palm’s 7,401-yard golf course was designed by Raymond Floyd with “tournament” in mind and unmistakably presents the perfect combination of features to challenge and perfect both precision and power and help players take their game to the next level.
Aside from the state-of-the-art golf course, the Old Palm property, located off PGA Boulevard just east of Florida’s Turnpike, features luxury estates ranging from 3,000 to a grand 15,000 square feet. The more than 300 homes in the development include golf estates, grand estates and custom estates, all laden with amenities, and centrally located in the heart of Palm Beach Gardens near endless dining, entertainment, and shopping options as well as some of South Florida’s most pristine beaches. Old Palm homes sell themselves with the amazing facility and estates, there are not many communities that compare to it.
More than 60 PGA and Champions tour golf pros now call Palm Beach or Martin County home. The migration of golf pros to the area has prompted many to brand South Florida as the new golf capital of the world. Other golfers who live along the Gold and Treasure coasts are Keegan Bradley, Olin Browne, Mark Calcavecchia, Luke Donald, Ernie Els, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jesper Parnevik, Lance Ten Broeck and Tiger Woods.
