If the professionals live here, it must be good!


Palm Beach County is known as Florida’s


golf capital and it more than lives up to its excellent reputation. Imagine the choice as you ponder which of the 160 meticulously manicured golf courses you’d like to play today, each designed around cascading waterfalls, calm lakes, rolling hills, palm trees and sub- tropical foliage.


It’s not a cure, but its retail ‘therapy’!


Everything from haute couture designer brand clothing, shoes and jewellery to internationally acclaimed paintings and antiques, prestigious Worth Avenue is the Rodeo Drive of the east. Although legendary for its high-end merchandise and outdoor lifestyle setting, it’s only one of many choices competing to satisfy your shopping desires. In West Palm Beach you can browse Clematis Street or the incredible 72-acre CityPlace Mall. Open air to make the most of the Florida sunshine, its Italian-inspired architecture lends itself to the elegant retail options it off ers. Visit T e Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens, or Town Centre Mall in Boca Raton – the various malls house no fewer than fi ve Macy’s, plus Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Nordstom, Saks Fifth Avenue and a whole host of speciality stores. Make sure you pack lightly, so you’ve room to bring your many purchases home.


Not just horsing around! Palm Beach County is all about lifestyle, so


it’s no surprise that the equestrian world is drawn from far and wide to pair its love for Polo, Steeplechase and Dressage with warm sunny weather, a leisurely champagne tipple and lots of fun. T is is home to the International Polo Club


Palm Beach, which was designed to showcase the incredible skill of the ponies and players. Many exciting tournaments are played here, mainly between the months of January and April, culminating in the prestigious US Polo Championship. Head to Wellington and the western


If you’re looking to combine your golf passion with a little relaxation, this destination would be a perfect choice as some of the best and most fabled courses can be found at Palm Beach County’s top hotel resorts. Take the Ocean Course at T e Breakers for example. Florida’s oldest 18-hole course, it has been testing golfer’s skills since 1896. T ere are also four championship courses at Boca Raton Resort & Club, ranked by Golf Magazine as one of America’s top golf resorts. Add to these the fi ve spectacular tournament courses at the PGA National Resort and already the choice is somewhat diffi cult. Whether you’re looking for a demanding


course, something less of a challenge, onsite pros to assist with your game or instructional academies, Palm Beach County has what you’re looking for. What’s more, some of the most famous and infl uential pro golfers, including Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Tom Fazio call this idyllic place home, and how can they be wrong?


communities where fl ying over stiles and fences in steeplechase is not only an exciting pursuit to take part in, but just as entertaining to watch. If you’re looking for a less vigorous equestrian sport, you can’t help but admire the precision and dedication it takes for dressage. When you’ve fi nished watching everyone else take to the saddle, why not do so yourself? No matter what your riding level, there are lots of stables and miles upon miles of trails to explore in a variety of natural parks. So grab your hat and boots, saddle up your horse and as they say in the movies ‘ride the range’.
