Live Alongside Legends at The Bear’s Club

The Bear’s Club takes its name from famed golf personage Jack Nicklaus, who throughout his incomparable career in the sport has been nicknamed the Golden Bear. Perhaps it was a nod to his physical traits, or that the Golden Bears were the mascot of his high school sports teams. But by any moniker, Jack Nicklaus has no equal in the game of golf, and in the world of graceful, refined living, neither does the country club community he founded in 1999, The Bear’s Club.

Jack Nicklaus long imagined creating a golf and club experience unlike any in the world and by all measures has succeeded with The Bear’s Club. There are fewer than 100 estate homes, golf villas and club cottages widely spaced on over 400 acres of the natural terrain that is The Bear’s Club. This magnificent tract of old Florida land is graced by a tapestry of mature cypress, pine and oak trees, and was once owned by insurance tycoon John D. MacArthur and used as a farm.

Residents of The Bear’s Club expect grace and precision in every aspect of their lives, and they will find it even in the construction and workmanship of the stellar custom homes of The Bear’s Club. There has been no compromise in the materials and craftsmanship used, and much of The Bear’s Club is reminiscent of classical European architecture and design that is Old World in origin, but technologically modern in every sense. No detail has been overlooked or forgotten, as built-in generators, impact resistant doors and windows, superior 24-hour security and manned gates, and a year-round white glove services staff offering comprehensive concierge assistance with all of life’s necessities are all part of the fabric of life at The Bear’s Club.

Building and design materials include such rarities and exotic woods like mahogany, onyx, solid marble and refined limestone. There is drama in these homes, with sweeping views, vast gourmet kitchens, luxurious master suites and baths, and at the very top, French barrel tile roofs of classic terracotta. Four, five and more bedrooms are the entry-level standard, with living spaces starting at 4,300 square feet. One of the largest custom estate homes in The Bear’s Club has 11 bedrooms and 28,000 square feet of living space.

Meet You at the Clubhouse!

The centerpiece of The Bear’s Club has to be the 40,000 square foot Clubhouse, and is truly one of a kind. Inside, dark woods, elegant European design elements, and classic stonework belie the newness of the structure. Outside, you’ll feel the nostalgic call of the Italian countryside as you admire the wrought iron gates that wait for you to come inside, limestone facade, lovely loggias and, of course, a barrel-tiled roof. It looks like it has been here forever, with no concession to its storied brethren around the world.

Aside from the traditional services and facilities customary in a first-class clubhouse of this standard, you’ll also see entertainment suites for members and their guests, and cottages for members’ guests to spend a short term visit. Its ambiance of nostalgic relaxed elegance features a consummate staff and peerless cuisine. This paragon of the genre is the social hub of The Bear’s Club, featuring a full slate of special events and activities throughout the year. Travel back to another place and time here at the Clubhouse; you’ve earned it.

Come for the Lifestyle, Stay for the Golf at The Bear’s Club

Finally, a few words about why residents come to The Bear’s Club in the first place; a love of golf and how the game adds to their lives. Of course there is no shortage of golf courses in Palm Beach County, but The Bear’s Club course was planned and designed by Jack himself. He wanted to ensure that the natural characteristics of the land were not disturbed, that the ecosystem was left intact, and that when built, the residences would seamlessly become part of the design. He also intended that The Bear’s Club course be challenging yet was never intended for tournament play. The resulting 18-hole course, (plus an additional 9-hole par 3 course) has become the home course for many pros of the sport, a testament to Jack’s vision.

Whether for your primary or seasonal residence, a home in The Bear’s Club will put you in the center of the Palm Beach County lifestyle, and among others whose accomplishments mirror your own. Live la dolce vita all day, every day, here in the italianesque spirit of The Bear’s Club.
