"Founded in 1959, the land that became Royal Palm was owned by Arthur Vining Davis. Mr. Davis wanted to sell some of his estimated 100,000 acres in Florida, and the land that he chose for the community was a premium location with boundaries of the Boca Hotel and Club, the Intracoastal Waterway, the Hillsboro River and Federal Highway. At the time, the 450 acre parcel was home of a nationally renowned polo field and was a major focal point of Palm Beach society.. . . The iconic Sam Snead was our first golf professional, and the original Robert Trent Jones golf course received a great deal of attention. A year-round, active lifestyle also includes the Club’s marina, which is situated in a safe and well-protected bay and is just minutes away from the Intracoastal Waterway and ocean access.”
