Some people like the ease of living in a golf community. But what if your sport isn't golf? If you prefer hunting, a private sporting community near Okeechobee, Florida called Pine Creek Sporting Club is for you. The community is about an hour from West Palm Beach, and founding members include Tullio Fabbri (world renowned shotgun maker), Jack Nicklaus, Nick Price, and Tucker Frederickson (a former NFL #1 draft pick). The gun-friendly development boasts over 1000 acres of quail fields, guided hunting, a members lodge, aviary, dog kennel, a sporting clay course, a rifle and pistol range and a simulated quail flush course. Non-shooting related amenities include concierge service, helipad, a treehouse restaurant, bocce courts, swimming pool and horse stables. The community includes smaller cabin properties and larger ranch properties. The first ranch home, owned by developer and former cable tv company CEO Steven Myers, was recently completed.
The three-bedroom ranch was designed by West Palm Beach's REG Architects, Inc and has sun-aged cedar planking, French doors and windows with mullions, a tin roof, and swings on the covered front porch. The designer planned the interior colors to bring the outside in and the home is being sold furnished. The art and accessories were chosen to accent the shooting lifestyle and feature hunting, birds, antiques, and horses. This home is listed at $2.35 million. The community is offering 22 40+ acre ranch sites that range in price from $800,000 to $1.2 million.
