Old Marsh is a unique club community of just 186 homes spread over the former Lewis Ranch, 456-acre parcel of pristine marshes and stately upland pines tucked away on the western side of Palm Beach Gardens.
Old Marsh is often called a “purist club” similar to Old Palm, The Loxahatchee Club or Jupiter Hills. Quiet and understated, members revel in the historic feel of the clubhouse complete with collection of historic golf clubs.
Old Marsh prides itself on having obtained the status of “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary”, which is a program of Audubon International. Every element of the course is uniquely compatible with the natural environment surrounding the golf course whose drainage system allows no irrigation water to be drained into the environmentally pure marshes or wetlands. Tranquil, pristine and natural are all words that describe Old Marsh.
Like most clubs in the area membership is mandatory and is $95,000.

Palms are a part of the South Florida lifestyle. Palms, more than any other plant, typify the tropical setting. I have several varieties growing in my yard including 3 towering coconut palms loaded with coconuts. Palms, since they are tropical trees, also survive hurricanes better than most trees. Other native trees, like live oaks, survive hurricanes well, especially if they have been trimmed some to thin them out. I love palms, but not everyone sees it the same as I do.
