Bonnette Hunt Club: Another Slice of Palm Beach History Gets Demolished
July 17, 2016 | Richard Sites
Another fabled piece of local history is slated for the wrecking ball. The historic Bonnette Hunt Club in Palm Beach Gardens has been sold and word is 13 homes are going in on the site.

Recently, the historic 1906 Sperry boathouse in the Jupiter Inlet met the same fate. As development pressure mounts and every possible piece of land is getting new construction, these old sites are doomed.
I grew up in Miami and witnessed this time and time again and the area grew in size and population.
The Bonnette Hunt Club was host to celebrities and locals for decades but the pressure and cost of maintaining the site forced the owners to sell. In May, an estate sale was held and all the interior furnishings were sold. Local celebrities like Jack Nicklaus, Burt Reynolds and Greg Norman used the facility as well as movie stars and international celebrities.
You can read a great story from the Palm Beach Post detailing the historic site and it’s famous guests.
