Noble House Hotels & Resorts is taking over the management of Banyan Cay Resort & Golf in West Palm Beach, Fla. The golf resort is the latest addition to Noble House’s recent expansion of its roster of premier properties throughout the United States. Situated on 250 acres in West Palm Beach, the redesign of Banyan Cay began with a ceremony attended by golf icon and globally acclaimed course designer Jack Nicklaus.
Noble House Hotels & Resorts has ties to Southern Florida, including ownership and management of La Playa Beach & Golf Resort, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, Ocean Key Resort & Spa and Pelican Grand Beach Resort. In addition to the new Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, practice facility and new clubhouse, Noble House’s plans for Banyan Cay will include the addition of a 150-room luxury hotel, residences, membership levels and a great lawn.
“Banyan Cay Resort & Golf has been a favorite West Palm Beach destination for more than 40 years and Noble House is extremely pleased to take over its management,” said Pat Colee, Noble House founder and chairman of the board. “We’re confident that the transformation we envision featuring the new course by golf’s greatest champion, Jack Nicklaus, will not only reignite excitement among longtime loyalists, but will prove instrumental in attracting new visitors to this prestigious property.”
“I have known this site for many years, and now, to have the opportunity to help shape Banyan Cay’s future and hopefully the next generation of golf in Central Palm Beach County, is an honor,” said Jack Nicklaus. “I applaud the city for its ongoing efforts to revitalize West Palm Beach. It’s possible this could be the last significant golf development-one with resort access-to break ground in the West Palm Beach area. We are excited to officially get this project underway.”
