Rush Limbaugh’s Palm Beach oceanfront estate with a 5-bedroom guesthouse compound Rush Limbaugh has always been in the news, but recently the unfounded bomb threat which was examined in one of his 4 guest houses and his run-in with college student Sandra Fluke, have increased attention on one of Palm Beach’s most well-known residents.1495 North Ocean Drive is in one of Palm Beach’s most exclusive locales. The estate is situated on 2.2 acres with its own private beach. The compound is a contemporized West Indies construction maze of a huge main house with a minimum of 12 different roof lines to break up the huge mass, and 3 or 4 guest houses and a guard station.The architecture is very well executed, so Rush apparently hired a top-of-the-line Florida architect, and the landscaping appears to be the work of Kerland. The 4 guest homes, other than serving to disarm bombs, are for his constant flow of conservative guests, including the likes of Matt Drudge and Ann Coulter. Limbaugh has a fleet of black & white Maybach 57S, each running at nearly $500,000 each! (see photo of them parked by the guest house compound). The entry to the main house has a majestic fountain in front. People I know who have visited the home describe it as a gold-gilded mansion. The grounds also feature a large swimming pool and putting green.

The outside style of the main house is 24,000 square foot under air. The total including patio, garages, and guest homes is over 34,000 square feet. Like all homes, the property appraisal of Rush’s home has gone down from $48,303,931 in 2009 to $34,951,392 in 2011. $6,577,290 is based on land alone. Rush has a homestead exemption which means the county can raise his taxes not more than 3% per year. He also gets his first $50,000 of the value of the home tax free, just like all other homeowners. Rush paid a total amount of $482,691 in taxes in 2011. Click Here to see Rush’s Tax Bill. Some of those tax dollars went to work when the Palm Beach County Sherrif’s Office assisted Rush’s security team with the bomb scare. In addition, the Coast Guard keeps an eye on the ocean waterway, further assisting his security team, at taxpayer’s expense. With property taxes, limos and limo drivers, and home security costs like these, it’s no wonder Rush apologized to Sandra Fluke after losing over 40 advertisers! A little about Palm Beach…..

Palm Beach, Florida was pretty much founded by Henry Morrison Flagler in the early 1890s when he built his first hotel on Palm Beach, the 1100-room Hotel Royal Poinciana on the west side of the island, the largest wooden structure in the world which soon became the largest resort in the world at the time. What remains is currently known as the Flagler Museum. A couple of years later, in 1896, Flagler built the Palm Beach Inn on the ocean side of the island, renaming it The Breakers in 1901.

Tiger Woods 15 Mile Commute to Work From Jupiter Island Home

February 24th, 2012

Tiger’s daily routine begins with a left turn out of his Jupiter Island home and a left turn onto Bridge Road, a beautifully maintained street with a canopy of Banyan trees totally covering both the sides and sky.

From there he heads north on US 1 to Greg Norman’s Medalist Golf Club where he practices (if he’s not practicing at his home course) and then plays. A typical day is 9 hours honing his game.

When he cuts his time short, or arrives late, Tigers practices his short game at home on his exqistively maintained short game practice area in his own backyard facing the Intercoastal.

His 15.1 mile treck to PGA National Championship Course will have him traveling south on US 1 to Indiantown Road and south on the Turnpike to PGA Blvd. From there he’s just a mile from the players tent.

The Jack Nicklaus Championship Course at PGA National is a new event for Tiger at the Honda Classic and will prove to be a real test of his readiness to return to prime time and his preparation for this years Masters. One of the most difficult tracks in the past, especially if the wind blows, last years winning score was just 5 under. In the past few years, Tiger has rarely been seen in the Jupiter-Palm Beach Gardens area. Regardless of how he finishes, it’s nice to see Tiger finally play in his new hometown.

The Famous ‘Bear Trap’

The weakness in Tiger’s game appears to be with his short stick. Once one of the greatest putters of all time, the past three years has shown the decline of that part of his game the most. In his last tournament, he missed 5 short putts in the final round and looked more like your 20 handicapper from 4 feet than the formally invincible player of the past.

His dominant past is way behind him, his stubbornness not to go back to his great teacher Butch Harmon shows a tail tale character flaw, and his isolation from the world makes him a sympathatecti figure.

Is the golf world rooting for or against Tiger? Great question, maybe 50/50 but time will tell. Personally, the golf world would love to see him dominant again.
