Cape Club of Palm City appoints John Carbeau director of golf operations

Palm City, Fla. (October 23, 2023) – The Cape Club of Palm City (formerly The Fox Club Florida) has named John Carbeau as its new Director of Golf Operations. Carbeau will be responsible for further developing the private club’s vibrant golf programming and enhancing the golf experience at The Cape Club of Palm City, located in Palm City, Florida, just thirty minutes from West Palm Beach Airport.

Carbeau makes the move to Florida after a 16-season tenure at The Cape Club of Sharon in Sharon, Massachusetts, The Cape Club of Palm City’s sister course. His extensive experience and dedication to the golf community have earned him a reputation for delivering exceptional golf events and fostering a welcoming atmosphere for members and guests. Carbeau is recognized for his ability to multitask, adapt, and thrive in a fast-paced environment. He takes pride in developing exciting tournament ideas that engage and delight members. During his tenure at The Cape Club of Sharon, Carbeau played a pivotal role in coordinating and running all golf events, culminating in the club hosting one of the top three-day member guest invitationals in all of New England. He will look to mirror the tournament and event success he achieved in Sharon at The Cape Club of Palm City.

The Cape Club of Palm City underwent a significant renovation project during the summer of 2022, transforming it into a fully private 18-hole country club. The club opened its doors to members and guests last November to rave reviews. 

"The first time I came here this past winter, I was blown away,” said Carbeau. “The golf course is on a unique piece of land and is very pleasing to the eye. Every hole is on its own, and I really enjoyed the private, secluded feel I had while playing as the round progressed. The ‘bones’ of the property are exceptional, and the potential is limitless.”

Capital improvements made by The Cape Club Collection represent a multi seven-figure investment on the golf course and clubhouse. Members of the rebranded and relaunched private club also have access to The Cape Club Collection sister courses, The Cape Club of Sharon and The Cape Club of Falmouth both located in Massachusetts. 

"Our ownership, and the team here at The Cape Club of Palm City, want members to feel welcome and enjoy themselves,” added Carbeau. “Outdated rules and regulations have been relaxed so members never feel like they have to walk on eggshells. It’s all about enjoying the Club and the benefits of membership.”

“The Cape Club of Palm City is thrilled to have John as the Director of Golf Operations,” said Kristi Tower, General Manager at Cape Club of Palm City. “We look forward to his contributions in elevating the golf experience for our members. John's passion, expertise, and commitment to excellence align perfectly with the club's mission to create an unforgettable club experience in the heart of Palm City.”
