PANTHER NATIONAL ANNOUNCES NEW HIRES TO GOLF AND MEMBERSHIP TEAMS
Palm Beach Gardens, FL (September 9, 2022)
Panther National, the new luxury golf and lifestyle community currently under development in upscale enclave Palm Beach Gardens, today announced key additions to its staff ahead of the scheduled opening of the golf course and lounge in late 2023.
The new hires include Steve Ehrbar, director of agronomy; Tom Dyer, director of golf; and Julie O’Neill, director of membership. All three will join the Panther National team in September and will serve on the club’s executive operating committee.
“Steve, Tom, and Julie are important additions to the Panther National team as we get closer to the official opening of the course and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them on board,” says Dominik Senn, founder and developer of Panther National. “Their combined wealth of experience in top golf and lifestyle communities here in South Florida will ensure that our members enjoy a world-class experience from day one.”
Ehrbar comes to Panther National as the club’s director of agronomy, bringing more than four decades of experience and a wealth of knowledge to his new role having worked on major golf course design projects with Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio and Pete Dye. Ehrbar helped guide the Old Marsh Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens to Audubon Sanctuary Certification in all six categories and for the last 15 years served as the director of golf course maintenance at Jupiter Hills Club in Tequesta, FL, where he earned the club its reputation for the best year-round playing conditions in the region.
Dyer brings dynamic career experience in the golf industry distinguished by a commendable record of financial, operational, and playing success. He was previously selected by the SECPGA as Teacher of the Year, Merchandiser of the Year and Golf Professional of the Year. He joins Panther National after 26 years as the director of golf at Old Marsh Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens.
O’Neill comes to Panther National with more than 25 years of experience in the private club industry. She has a proven track record of success at clubs throughout South Florida, most recently as the director of membership and communications at Lauderdale Yacht Club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where she oversaw the reopening of the clubhouse following a $30 million renovation.
In partnership with iconic golf champion Jack Nicklaus and current PGA TOUR star Justin Thomas, Panther National will feature a Jack Nicklaus Signature 18-hole course, representing the first time the golfers have teamed up on a course design project. The course will be complemented by world-class training facilities, featuring state-of-the-art ball tracing technology, elite pros to provide tailored instruction, an indoor simulator, putting room, and high-end fitness training equipment. Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy playing on the community’s 9-hole, par-3 practice course with a short game area and hitting bays.
In addition to the world-class golf course, Panther National will offer luxurious and wellness-oriented amenities, including a contemporary clubhouse with progressive, health-forward cuisine; a lifestyle center with a premium spa providing holistic wellness services; state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio; tennis and pickleball courts; and resort-style pool. Panther National’s 218 custom estates will pair sleek, modern elegance with visionary, environmentally sensitive engineering from renowned architect Max Strang for a sustainable and effortless luxury living experience.
