Eastpointe Country Club was developed in the 1970’s in conjunction with Eastpointe Tower on Singer Island. The property for both developments was purchased in 1972 by Mr. Claire Anderson and the condominium tower and golf course both opened in 1975. After building the tower on Singer Island, Anderson turned his attention to his Eastpointe Country Club in beautiful Palm Beach Gardens; a former orange grove that today is about ¾ mile west of the Donald Ross Road exit on I-95.
The golf course at Eastpointe Country Club was designed by George Fazio and his nephew Tom. Many people say that the early Tom Fazio courses don’t look like Florida courses but are more North Carolina in their feel and that is true of Eastpointe Country Club. Part of the feel is over 2,000 trees planted over the years by past Club president Don Kuss, an arborist.
In November of 2007 Eastpointe Country Club re-opened the course after months of restoration. Sanford Golf Design, the world renowned golf course architect, worked with Golf Course Superintendent John Spiwak on the renovations and restoration of the course. During this project all the tees were stripped, resized and laser leveled using Tifway 419 Bermuda grass. The greens also were stripped and resized with TifEagle Bermuda. Additional yardage was added to the Par 72 layout making the Black tees now measure 7,011 yards, a 121-yard increase. A new forward tee was added measuring 5,045 yards. The six-month project also included 52 bunkers being restored to their original shape and size with drainage systems installed and the very desirable G-Angle sand used.
The unique property features several native plant materials including large Live Oak and Slash Pine trees and offers a pristine setting of lakes, rolling fairways, and wildlife. Eastpointe Country Club is proud to be affiliated with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program. Through this program the club addresses wildlife and habitat management, chemical use safety and reduction, water conservation, water quality management, and education. Environmental quality is important to the members and management, and the club encourages the involvement of all the members to do their part.
