When you think of Palm Beach Gardens and the country club lifestyle, one name always stands out: PGA National.
PGA National is really a small town unto itself. Located between PGA Boulevard and Northlake Boulevard, PGA National spreads west from the Florida Turnpike before quietly melding into the native preserve areas to the west. This carefully planned community of over 2,000 acres is designed around the headquarters of the PGA of America and the famous PGA National Resort & Spa as well as five championship golf courses. The Honda Classic on the PGA Tour is played here as well.
Other features which make this area so desirable include the LA Fitness Center Plaza, Bascom-Palmer Eye Institute and its central location across from the Country Club at Mirasol, BallenIsles Country Club and Old Palm. This is truly a golfer’s paradise.
Within the PGA National development are more than forty individual communities consisting of condominiums, townhouses and single family homes. With five golf courses, most have either golf course views or lake views.
One community of single family homes is the Barclay Club. Greeted by a large sculputure in the cirucluar round about, there are 288 homes in the Barclay Club real estate subdivision all carefully removed from the traffic on the Avenue of the Masters. As with all PGA communities, the only traffic in your neighborhood will be those that live in there, the others are routed away from homes.
The three bedroom, two bath homes in the Barclay Club PGA National homes were built in the late 1980’s. They range in size from about 1,500 square feet to around 2,200 although some are slightly larger. Most do not have pools although there are a few with them. You may find homes for sale in the Barclay Club that have been completely upgraded or ones that provide you the opportunity to upgrade just the way you like it.
No matter which you choose, a home here could be a perfect choice for you.
