What Does A “Right-Sized” Community Mean for South Florida Private Club Members?

January 15, 2024 | Read Time: 4 minutes

In South Florida’s private club landscape, many well-established communities cater to almost every interest. From pickleball to tennis to bustling social calendars, these private clubs have attracted hundreds of Members by providing a wide range of opportunities. Yet, with a surge in residents, avid golfers focused solely on the game find it tough to secure tee times and enjoy a high-quality golf experience. Many are now seeking to find a “right-sized” community – one where the club’s size and atmosphere align more precisely with their personal preferences.

Located just north of the Palm Beaches, Tesoro Club has emerged as an exceptional option for the golf purist seeking a true championship golf experience. Cocooned in endless nature preserves, the 1,490-acre community has attracted both golf and nature lovers with its stunning fairway views and gated club lifestyle. Tesoro Club’s championship golf course, having hosted multiple PGA Tour events, is just the beginning of this private club’s timeless allure. Let’s explore what other driving factors are enticing individuals to make the move 40 minutes north.

A Championship Palmer-Designed Golf Course

Designed to the exacting standards of golf legend Arnold Palmer, the Palmer Course is a spectacular and dramatic anchor to Tesoro Club’s golf experience. The 7,333-yard, par 72 course combines a strategic PGA-level design with winding fairways woven through picturesque lakes and wetlands. Full Golf Members enjoy unlimited play on the course, along with lessons and instruction from golf professionals at Tesoro Club’s impressive practice facilities. The private club community has already established itself as a destination for PGA-level play, as the Palmer Course has hosted the second stage of the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament, the Astara Qualifier for the Korn Ferry Tour, and the Honda Classic Monday Qualifier.

Luxury Homes in a Private South Florida Setting

Tesoro Club takes great pride in harmonizing sophistication with serene natural surroundings. The private club community was specifically designed to provide spectacular golf, freshwater lakes and creeks, or wooded preserve views as a standard for every residence. Residential streetscapes are separated into individual villages, ensuring views are maintained and embraced rather than blocked. In 2023, WCI Communities and Toll Brothers introduced two new luxury neighborhoods, with elegantly designed model homes for daily tours. Tesoro Club’s Signature Homes Collection features charming cottages to grand estate-sized homes nestled on prime championship golf courses, wooded preserves, and picturesque lakefronts. With builders like Ecclestone Signature Homes, GHO Homes, and Janssen Custom Homes crafting unique designs, these homes combine cutting-edge architecture with a natural setting that is second to none.
