Par 3 Golf Course

Acquired in 1973 and renovated through the support of Raymond Floyd and the Par 3 Foundation, the Par 3 Golf Course, situated between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, offers a spectacular view and a great challenge to all skill levels. The Par 3 Golf Course offers clinics, private lessons, tournaments and walk-on play.  A beautiful clubhouse, which opened in January 2014, offers a full-service pro shop and restaurant with ocean view dining.


Town Marina

The only public marina on the island of Palm Beach, the Town Marina has been providing berthing for power and sail yachts since the 1940s and is currently closed for renovation with an anticipated opening date of Fall 2021.  The master plan is now underway for a brilliant new marina that works in harmony with the Town’s ethos, style and quality of life. The $34 million renovation is to transform the old Town Docks into a world-class yacht center that will welcome vessels from 60 to 294 feet.

The new 84 - slip marina will feature the following:

    State of the art engineering

    Bellingham concrete floating dock system

    Wider and deeper slips to facilitate super yachts

    Expanded shore power with up to 480 V, 200 amps power per slip

    High speed wireless internet

    High-capacity, in-slip pump-out

    16-foot wide main pier with extra wide finger piers

    Cart and porter concierge services

    Gated docks with access control system

    State-of-the-art lighting

    Security cameras throughout

    Sustainable operations that protect the environment

    Three new Mediterranean style amenity buildings with shower facilities and lounge
