See Why Tesoro Club Has Emerged as a Magnet for Palm Beach’s Golf Lovers

November 12, 2023 | Read Time: 5 minutes

For decades, Palm Beach has been an epicenter for some of the biggest names in golf. Yet, as the demand for golf living surges, enthusiasts are finding it a challenge to find greens to tee off at. With limited availability of homes and extensive waitlists for golf memberships, private club communities in the region are struggling to meet Palm Beach’s growing demand.

Located just 30 minutes north of The Palm Beaches, Tesoro Club in Port St. Lucie has become a coveted destination for those seeking championship-level play in an uncrowded setting. Cocooned in endless nature preserves, the 1,490-acre community has attracted both golf and nature lovers with its stunning fairway views and a secure, gated club lifestyle. The first of Tesoro Club’s two championship courses, The Palmer Course, reopened last year after a meticulous 18-month renovation to rave reviews. As the host to two PGA Tour Qualifying events last season, Tesoro Club has an exciting lineup of events for this upcoming season sure to keep its Members enthused. Let’s take an inside look at the course and exciting activities planned this season.

Where Nature and Sport Intersect

Masterfully designed by legend Arnold Palmer, The Palmer Course challenges players’ strength and accuracy with its innovative architecture. Pristine wetlands flow through wooded natural preserves to give players scenic views on every hole. Spanning from 4,756 to 7,316 yards, there’s plenty of room on this par 72 course for Members to perfect their swings and engage in friendly competition. This summer, Tesoro Club took advantage of the off-season to improve the quality of its greens further. The re-establishment of Bermuda grass brought back its healthy appearance, while a rigorous top-dressing process promoted the growth of strong, championship-level playing grass. These enhancements created faster and firmer greens for Members to enjoy year-round.

“The Palmer course takes your breath away,” shared Head Golf Professional Matthew Doyle. “The beauty, the waterways, the shots, the bunkering – it really is a spectacular golf course that really has a big wow factor to it. The 17th hole is personally my favorite hole on the course. It has an absolutely spectacular view of the green surrounded by the coquina and crushed concrete. Then it has an infinite view of the large lake that we are blessed to have here. It’s a hole that you do not see in Florida.”

An Exhilarating Stop on the PGA Tour

Although the community just reopened its course last season, Tesoro Club has already established itself as a destination for PGA-level play. On November 14-17, The Palmer Course hosted championship golfers from around the nation for the second stage of PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament. After decades of hosting its qualifying tournament at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, the PGA Tour chose Tesoro Club to host the event in the fall. Golfers vied for the top five spots, which promise PGA Tour cards for the first time in a decade. The Club hosted two prestigious PGA Tour qualifying events last season as well, including the Astara Qualifier for the Korn Ferry Tour in January and the Honda Classic Monday Qualifier in February.

“Tesoro Club is honored to be chosen as the host site for the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament,” said Doyle. “Our events last year were a resounding success, and we have heard many remarks from players that our course was one of the nicest they’ve been able to play. We’re looking forward to all the future events we will have the honor of hosting at Tesoro Club.”

Resort-Style Amenities for Every Interest

Along with championship golf, the 22,000-square-foot Swim and Racquet Club offers an array of activities for Members to get out in the Florida sunshine. Eleven pickleball courts, seven Har-Tru tennis courts, two stadium courts, and two bocce ball courts ensure plenty of play time for Members of all skill levels. A few times a week, Members can sharpen their pickleball game with learning and strategy classes, and a cardio tennis class during the day segues into a spirited Doubles and Bubbles mid-week. Led by USPTA Elite Tennis Director Jason Suarez, the Racquet Club also boasts select private and charitable events each year. The rest of the Swim and Racquet Club’s social calendar brims with social bocce and kids’ clinics, while Tesoro Club’s landmark Clubhouse hosts fitness classes and lunch at the Terrace Grill overlooking the fairways.
