Famed golfer Jack Nicklaus will design a golf course within the master-planned community of Avenir in Palm Beach Gardens.

Nicklaus’s company, Nicklaus Design, is partnering with Centaur US Holdings to design a 210-acre Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course to be called “Panther National.” In addition to an 18-hole championship course, the property will include a nine-hole Par-3 short course and a state-of-the-art training and practice facility, according to a release.

The private golf enclave will also include 459 luxury single-family homes. Residents will have access to the club’s dining, spa, fitness center and pool, along with a “beach club” on a planned 10-acre Crystal Lagoon with white-sand beaches, according to the release.

Nicklaus, who won more major championships than any other golfer in history, said on Sunday during the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, that he and wife, Barbara, contracted Covid-19 in March. Speaking to CBS’ Jim Nantz, Nicklaus said he had a sore throat and cough while his wife was asymptomatic. Nicklaus said he and his wife recovered from the virus in late April.

Avenir is a massive master-planned community just north of Northlake Boulevard and west of the Florida Turnpike. The community will total 4,752 acres and will include 3,900 homes. The community will feature a working farm and more than 2,400 acres of conservation and preserve areas.

The community is approved for 400,000 square feet of retail space, 200,000 square feet for medical uses, more than 1 million square-feet of professional offices and a hotel.

National homebuilders such as Kenco, K. Hovnanian and Toll Brothers are building homes at Avenir. The companies are currently constructing their model homes or are about to start building them, but no homes have yet been completed, Danny Lopez of Avenir Holdings told The Real Deal.
