A New Chapter for The FOX Club in Florida

The Fox Club

NEW OWNERSHIP, NEW ENHANCEMENTS, AND MORE ARE COMING FOR CAPE CLUB PALM CITY

The Fox Club in Palm City has a buzz in the air. The club that is just 30 minutes north of the West Palm Beach airport has been acquired by The Cape Club. The new ownership shared a bevy of new and exciting announcements and will elevate the club and the experience for current and future members and guests. For those not familiar with Cape Clubs mantra, the Cape Club Collection includes Cape Club of Sharon and Cape Club of Falmouth, two vibrant, thriving clubs in the Boston/Cape Cod, Massachusetts area that operate at the world-class level yet challenge the status quo with fun events, music, great golf and a culinary adventure that is unmatched.  The same ownership has begun reinvigorating the Fox Club with significant capital investment into the golf course and clubhouse, ushering in a new era for the golf facility. This period will create a premier private club experience that will be the crown jewel of the Palm City and Treasure Coast region.

Capital improvement projects underway at The Fox Club will include:

  • Renovation of all bunkers on the course to include re-shaping, new liners, drains, and the addition of brilliant “Augusta-white” bunker sand in all bunkers – a Cape Club Collection signature feature
  • New landscaping around the parking lot and clubhouse
  • Investment in a new pump station to provide enhanced turf health
  • Revitalization of golf cart paths to include a refresh of current approaches and new white coquina for natural paths
  • Clean up landscaping in both in-play and out-of-play areas on every golf hole. This will include trimming all brush and trees and strategically laying down pine straw, mulch, and flowers.
  • The golf course will receive top dressing to enhance turf health and undergo other agronomic practices throughout the summer to ensure first-class conditions for the future.
  • Player-friendly redesign/enhancements to holes 10 and 18
  • Refreshed (and fully accessorized) golf carts featuring state-of-the-art GPS, Bluetooth-enabled upgraded speakers, coolers, and in-cart ball/club washers
  • Renovation of the driving range/practice area to include enhanced landing area, new targets (with white sand bunkers), a new retaining wall, alternative artificial hitting mats, new practice golf balls along with furniture and practice accessories
  • Creation of a new back patio on the clubhouse
  • Clubhouse interior improvements to enhance social opportunities and event venues

Capital improvements to be made by the Cape Club represent a multi-seven-figure investment in the golf course and clubhouse. To complete all improvements promptly, The Fox Club has closed temporarily from July 1 through mid-November 2022, when the club will be relaunched as the new Cape Club of Palm City.

“This is so very exciting for the club, the community, and the region,” said a longtime associate of the Fox Club, now General Manager Kristi Tower. “The Cape Club organization operates at an extremely high level, investing in their courses to create amazing golf, social and culinary experiences.  Being a part of the Cape Club family will usher in a new era for the club and elevate the experience for members and guests.”

Members of the new/relaunched private club will access both sister clubs – Cape Club of Sharon and Cape Club of Falmouth. Cape Club of Sharon and Cape Club of Falmouth members will also access the new Cape Club Palm City upon reopening.

“Our members will be able to play and discover the world-class Cape Club courses in Massachusetts and vice versa. We look forward to being a winter retreat for Cape Club members from Sharon and Falmouth and being their go-to Florida destination,” added Tower.

Located thirty minutes from West Palm Beach Airport in Palm City, Florida, on the Treasure Coast, The Fox Club offers quintessential Florida golf with a meandering layout highlighted by creative mounding, strategically located water features, tour-quality putting green surfaces.

In contrast, clubhouse enhancements have included renovations to the Grand Ballroom and Grille Room and the creation of an expansive Grand Patio featuring fire pits, big screen televisions, frequent live music events, and expansive golf course views.
