Panther National

Officially opened November 17, 2023, Panther National is located approximately 5 five miles west of I-95 in Palm Beach Gardens. Situated on 2,400 acres it features an elastic first-time collaborative design between 18-time major winner Jack Nicklaus and two-time PGA Champion Justin Thomas. Panther National offers an array of resort-style amenities in concert with luxury real estate and is wonderfully secluded among a picturesque nature preserve.

What was the genesis for Panther National?

My vision for Panther National was inspired by what I believe is a void in the luxury real estate and golf markets, both in Southern Florida and across the U.S.

I knew that there would be a strong desire for a revitalized, lifestyle-driven golf community and given the strong interest we have received thus far, I am confident we have delivered with Panther National.

Given the plethora of clubs throughout much of southeast Florida – how will Panther National differentiate itself from those in the immediate area?

Panther National is the first golf community to be built in Palm Beach Country in over 20 years, so it appeals to an entirely new generation of buyers and members looking to invest in this lifestyle.

The golf course was designed in partnership with iconic golf champion Jack Nicklaus and current PGA TOUR star Justin Thomas, marking Thomas’ first and only course design.

They both have different perspectives that created a masterpiece. Jack sees the game through the air and favors bunkering that runs side to side. JT has a preference for the ground game and bump and runs. It was amazing to have two generations of golfers combined their best recommendations during the design of Panther National.

As for the actual course design, it is open and links-like with steep elevation changes, dramatic vistas, and includes features unlike any other course in Florida. It can also play 8,000 yards from the longest tees down to 4,500 yards, giving a rare diversity in length that allows the picturesque course to be a “major tournament” test for the expert golfer, while also presenting a very enjoyable course for members of all skill levels.

Lastly, we believe Panther National further differentiates itself by offering custom modern estates, designed by world-renowned architect Max Strang, and premium community amenities including The Clubhouse and Lifestyle Club for an unparalleled luxury experience.
