Frenchman's Creek

Located in Palm Beach County, Florida, Frenchmans’s Creek Beach and Country Club is a residents-only, year round residential country club community set on 700 acres (2.8 km2) of land. The community contains 606 Florida luxury homes - 188 custom / million dollar estate homes, 90 villa homes, 291 patio homes and 37 town homes. 95 of these homes are located on deep water canals offering boating and yachting activities. Eleven homes are located outside the confines of the main community with intra-coastal water access, adjacent to the public marina. Home prices range from $750,000 to over $5 million.

In 1935, the Hoyt family bought land on North Prosperity Farms Road near the Intracoastal Waterway. By the 1940s, the family owned much of the area, then known as Paradise Port. In the later 1940s, federal surveyors found a small wooden sign that one of the Hoyt children, Billy Hoyt, had placed on a small creek. It turned out the children had informally named the stream for one of their mother's favorite novels: Daphne du Maurier's Frenchman's Creek. The name became official and still marks the small waterway that runs through the Frenchman's Creek neighborhood and connects to the nearby Marina.

In 1977, developers Burt Haft and Jack Gaines purchased the 1,400 acres (5.7 km2) of land, formerly owned by the Hoyts, from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation for $61 million, which included two public golf courses. The 700 acres (2.8 km2) south of Donald Ross Road, with the two golf courses, became Frenchman's Creek. The 700 acres (2.8 km2) north of Donald Ross Road were sold and are now home to The Bear's Club and Ritz-Carlton Golf and Spa communities. Frenchman's Creek was approved by the county for the development of 3,300 housing units; Haft Gaines settled for a much lower density of only 600 home sites. Houses were then marketed from $325,000 to more than $3 million. In 1986, additional land was purchased in Juno Beach on which the Beach Club was built directly adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean.

Frenchman’s Creek also includes a private ocean-front Beach Club along with two 18-hole golf courses, 17 tennis courts, deepwater anchorage for boats and yachts, a 70,000-square-foot (6,500 m2) clubhouse, and a stand-alone 11,000-square-foot (1,000 m2) fitness and spa facility exclusively for member use.

Membership in the private club at Frenchman's Creek is limited exclusively to the 606 residences within the community. Frenchman's Creek is owned and operated by its equity members, thus establishing each Member as an owner in part of the common areas, Club and their related facilities. Membership in this Palm Beach country club is a family-style membership with golf, tennis and activities intended for use by every member of the immediate family.

As a resident in the community, country club membership is mandatory. Members pay an Equity Fee, a portion of which is refundable and the non-refundable portion is a contribution to the Capital Reserve Fund. Members are billed annual club dues and POA maintenance fees established by the annual operating budget.
