What do Tiger & Jack have in Common? | 5000 North Ocean

POSTED ON May 25, 2016 - 5000 North Ocean

A love of the Palm Beach coastal lifestyle of course. “I could have gone anywhere,” said Jack Nicklaus. “I have gone all over the world, and I haven’t found a place I’d rather be then in Palm Beach County.”

Praises from Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and five other famous golfers with homes and businesses in Palm Beach County are being featured in a new series of videos. Each short video includes a different golfer speaking about why they live here and why out-of-towners should come visit.

Among the other golfers who have agreed to be ambassadors for the county: Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Camilo Villegas, Daniel Berger, and Ernie Els. For Els the must-sees include the 1920s-era architecture along Worth Avenue and The Square Grouper along the Jupiter inlet. “We’ve got a nice airport; we’ve got brilliant restaurants; and we’ve got great outdoor life,” said Els.

Besides golf, Jack Nicklaus says he enjoys tennis and fishing in the county. He also enjoys the weather, which he says is not as humid for playing golf as other areas farther south. Having family close by also is a plus, he said. Four of five of his children, all of whom grew up in the county, have chosen to remain here with their families. “Once you get here and discover what’s here, it’s pretty hard to leave,” said Nicklaus, who first visited the county for a golf tournament in 1963.

For Woods, an ideal day in The Palm Beaches would be one where you could “surf a little bit. … We can go scuba diving, spear fishing and play golf, then go to the restaurant at the very end of it and watch sports.”

Both Nicklaus and Woods live in prestigious coastal communities just to the north of Singer Island in North Palm Beach. The Nicklaus Family has been long time residents of Lost Tree Village which is located just north of John D. MacArthur State Park on the island. Having a world-famous neighbor will be top-of-mind for residents of 5000 North Ocean… AlA on Singer Island becomes Jack Nicklaus Drive as you travel to the north to Palm Beach Gardens. The private new residences of 5000 North Ocean will enjoy both Intracoastal and Atlantic views similar to Woods’s view from his Jupiter Island estate. Prospective buyers looking for the ultimate waterfront lifestyle should look no further than 5000 North Ocean on Singer Island. With only 48 residences available, now is the time to hit the beach early for best selection and pricing.
