Long known for its pristine shoreline and amazing winter climate, Palm Beach has been the desired playground for those seeking the finest that Florida has to offer. The Breakers and Palm Beach have been synonymous since it was founded by Henry Flagler in 1896. In the early 20th century, The Breakers guest list regularly included the names of America’sbest-known industrialists and socialites – Rockefeller, Astor, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, and J.PMorgan was often present along with U.S Presidents and regal foreign dignitaries. Today, the Breakers is still regarded as the premier luxury resort in the Sunshine State and is easily among the shortlist of America’s most exquisite destinations.
Perhaps the main attraction at The Breakers other than the crystal blue Atlantic is its Golf. Designed by Alexander H. Findlay in 1896, the Breakers Ocean Course is Florida’s first golf course (in the only state that boasts more than 1200 courses).
Redesigned by Brian Silva in 2000, the Ocean Course is short on length (6,167 yards, par 70), but not variety – rewarding accuracy, finesse and precision over brute power.
Lush tropical landscaping borders each hole and TifEagle greens provide pure surfaces year-round for resort guests.
Breakers Rees Jones CourseThe Breakers Rees Jones Course is considered the resort’s championship golf courseplaying at 7,100 yards – par 72. A comprehensive redesign was completed by Rees Jones in 2005 and was awarded the best renovation of the year. Located 7 miles west of the resort in the residential neighborhood of Breakers West, the Rees Jones Course hosts many of Palm Beach County’s most prestigious events.
Whether it’s the beaches, cuisine, spa, tennis, fitness, shopping or golf, The Breakersexudes all of the beauty and splendor of life in the Palm Beaches. Luxury, seaside glamour, and world-class service come standard at The Breakers Resort.
