We are a leading country club gated community in South Florida.
In 1977, developers Burt Haft and Jack Gaines purchased the 1,400 acres of land formerly owned by the Hoyts, including two public golf courses, from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation for $61 million. The 700 acres south of Donald Ross Road, which included the two golf courses, became Frenchman’s Creek. The 700 acres north of Donald Ross Road were sold and are now home to The Bear’s Club and Ritz Carlton Golf and Spa communities. Palm Beach County approved the development of 3,300 housing units at Frenchman’s Creek; Haft and Gaines chose a much lower density of only 600 homes sites. Houses ranging in price from $325,000 to more than $3 million were then marketed. In 1986, land on the Atlantic Ocean in Juno Beach was purchased and the Beach Club was built and remains a fixture in Palm Beach Gardens today.
