Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens has become one of the hottest pieces of golf-course property in South Florida.
According to International Sports Management, four PGA Tour professionals have joined a handful of other card-carrying players as members of the prized development. The development, off PGA Boulevard east of Florida’s Turnpike, across from the entrance to BallenIsles, is filled with more than 300 gorgeous homes that include golf estates, grand estates and custom estates.
The newest members are Darren Clarke, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel and Lee Westwood, and the latter three recently signed contracts on homes for sale in Old Palm Golf Club.
Old Palm Golf Club’s golf estates range in size from 3,000 to 5,000 square feet, and they’re on quarter-acre lots. The grand estates are a step up in breadth – they are between 5,000 and 7,000 square feet – and the custom estates are awe-inspiring, inviting manses that soar up to 15,000 square feet and are lade with amenities.
Clarke, from Northern Ireland, Oosthuizen and Schwartzel, both from South Africa, and Lee Westwood, from England, now belong to the same club as Waterfront Properties and Club Communities sales specialist Cris Tamasi. Tamasi, new to the company, will serve as the onsite resident agent at the club and will offer invaluable services to her clients because of her knowledge of the area. Tamasi, an agent since 1986, also has first-hand knowledge of Old Marsh Golf Club and The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club & Spa, recently acquired by Donald Trump.
Timothy Bright, senior vice president of Clarion Partners, the outfit that owns Old Palm Golf Club, welcomed the foursome to their new digs and said, between them, they have racked up 80 PGA Tour wins and three majors victories. Bright described their selection of the club as “a tremendous honor.”
Chubby Chandler, founder of International Sports Management, said the move establishes Palm Beach Gardens as the new North American headquarters of the agency. Chandler described the Old Palm Golf Club property as “world-class.”
Clarke, Oosthuizen, Schwartzel and Westwood are among the more than 60 PGA and Champions tour pros who live in Palm Beach and Martin counties, prompting golf columnists, sports reporters and newscasters to call South Florida the new golf capital of the world. Among the 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.
