Piper’s Landing Yacht and Country Club

pipers-landingI sometimes wish I still lived in Florida.

Like when a friend of mine reminds me that he lives in Piper’s Landing, which happens to be the finest gated golf community in Palm City and the rest of Florida, as well.

Their clubhouse is capable of hosting any function imaginable, they have a newly re-designed Gene Bates golf course, tennis programs that include new lighted facilities considered to be the best in Martin County and a marina recognized as one of the safest and most accessible on Florida’s east coast.

Their Head Golf Pro is Debbie O’Connell. She didn’t take up golf until her senior year at Western Kentucky University, my alma mater, or would have been if I’d have had more money and could have stayed thru to graduation.

She was also a scholarship player on the 1986 NCAA Women’s Final Four championship basketball team.

I’m hoping to get down there later this year and try to finagle a free lesson or two and a coupla free rounds. Go Toppers!

Did I mention that the golf course is beautiful, challenging and fun to play?

Did I mention that the marina has yachts to yearn for?

Did I mention that …

Oh, never mind, just click thru to their gorgeous website and see for yourself.

And if you drop by to meet ’em, tell ’em Mike said Hello !
