The tournament is located on site. No collarless shirts or denim permitted. $145 per person includes breakfast, green and cart fees. Clubs may be rented for $110. Breakfast will be served on the Golf Veranda at 8am with a shotgun start at 8:30am.

Henry Flagler, founding partner along with John D. Rockefeller of Standard Oil, builder of The Breakers, and developer of Florida’s east coast and the Florida East Coast Railway, built Whitehall as a gift to his wife.
When it was completed in 1902, the New York Herald proclaimed that Whitehall, Flagler’s Gilded Age estate in Palm Beach was “more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world.” Today, Whitehall is a National Historic Landmark.
