60 The LandReport | S P R I N G 2 0 1 5 LANDREPORT.COM As trivial as those details may seem, they've proved to be a key selling point for Pine Creek's fast-paced membership. What makes Pine Creek even more appealing is its central location: a little over an hour by car from Palm Beach, Naples, or Orlando, and just over two hours from Miami or Tampa. Many members opt to fly their own helicopters to the club's helipad or land their aircraft at the nearby Okeechobee County Airport. "Our families put a priority on spending time together," Reynolds says. "They're not interested in the hassles of a time-consuming commute, and they want to hit the ground running as soon as they arrive. That can be as simple as going out bass fishing or taking a spin on a trail bike right when they arrive. Every Saturday, we have a regularly scheduled shooting competition. Wednesday is clay day. And for those who specialize in indoor sports, our wine tastings are on Friday afternoons. You pick the start time." The list of on-site activities at Pine Creek is almost endless, from playing bocce or volleyball, getting archery instruction or shooting lessons, bellying up to the Covey Bar, or booking an event in the club's very own tree house, which was built several stories above the lodge by local artisans using the traditional techniques of the native Seminole. In addition to guided quail, turkey, and wild hog hunts, range facilities include five-stand, sporting clays, rifle and pistol range, trap field, simulated quail flush, and high-tower station. The opportunities for photo safaris are endless, particularly given the more than 400 avian species that flock to Central Florida. "Steve has a great place at Pine Creek. " — Jack Nicklaus, Founding Member Pine Creek's architectural standards respect traditional techniques while facilitating innovative design.
