A "Looking Glass" into Private Golf Communities located in Palm City and Stuart, Florida. This week's private golf community showcased is Piper's Landing Yacht & Country Club. Piper's Landing is a Gated Golf Community in Palm City, part of Stuart Florida.
Piper's Landing was developed by John Dodge, who had recently completed the development of Quail Ridge Country Club in Boynton Beach, Florida and was preparing to develop Harbour Ridge, another private gated community to the north in Port St. Lucie. The Club was officially incorporated in 1980 when pre-construction lots and memberships were sold. The Joe Lee designed golf course opened in 1982, the same year the first Member's cocktail party was held. The Country Club officially opened in 1983 and Piper's Landing Yacht and Country Club was established in 1984. In 1989, John Dodge, the developer, officially conveyed the property to the membership.
Piper's logo, the Thistle, has a history of its own. John Dodge chose to follow a Scottish theme in naming streets at Piper's. Loch Lane, Gleneagles Circle, Thornberry Circle, Troon Circle...and on it goes. So why the Thistle? It seems that, according to Scottish legend, one night, as Viking pirates were creeping toward a Scottish camp, an unsuspecting Dane stepped on a thistle and screamed so loud that he woke the sleeping Scots, who rushed to the defense of their land. So, the plant that pricked the invader's foot has been dear to the Scottish heart forever more!!!
