A Celebrated Network of the Best Golf

JUPITER, FLORIDA: From 1998 to 2007 an incredible amount of private golf clubs were built.

In Focus

JUPITER, FLORIDA: The great Florentine Renaissance historian, diplomat, and philosopher, Niccolò Machiavelli wrote in his book The Prince, “It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out . . . than to initiate a new order of things.” For generations, affluent families typically purchased seasonal residences and multiple private club memberships. AppleTree Management Group, the managing company of AppleTree Golf Society, through a diligent process of altering bylaws at private golf clubs, is attempting to change the order of how these well-to-do families spend their leisure time.

Bing Crosby's son tells tales of a legend who was no snob when it came to his golf.

Bing Crosby, or dad to me, was the most popular entertainer in the world in his day, a day that lasted the better part of five decades. In 1977, the last year of his life, he was still selling out shows in London and New York City. "Just imagine something five times stronger than the popularity of Elvis Presley and the Beatles put together," Tony Bennett said in 1999. Dad's influence spanned generations.

Golf, Life and Lessons from Dad

The Book Reporter review
