“A wilderness oasis has drawn South Floridians from the comfort of the coast to the tranquility of the Florida backwoods.”

This quote in a recent South Florida Business Journal article is refers to Pine Creek Sporting Club, a luxury community known for its Florida bird hunting.

Pine Creek Sporting Club, located 80 miles northwest of West Palm Beach in Okeechobee County, is a 2,500-acre hunting plantation offering 40-acre ranches and lakeside cabins for those looking to purchase a home on a larger ranch property. Pine Creek Sporting Club has drawn wilderness-seekers and hunting lovers from Miami to Vero Beach and become a second, third or even a fourth home for many.

Pine Creek was also recently featured in an article in TC Palm as one of many projects that are revitalizing the area surrounding Okeechobee, FL.

“When you think of Okeechobee, cattle, bass fishing and farming usually come to mind” said Jennifer Schroeder, a writer for TC Palm.

At Pine Creek Sporting Club, nature’s landscape stretches to the horizon with pines, hundred year-old oak trees and sable palms overlooking fields of glistening palmettos. 40 acres Ranch sites and country cabins surrounding a lake are complimented by endless acres of quail hunting fields ready to be worked by a brace of very bird-y pointers. A beautifully appointed ranch style lodge is complete with porch rockers and a fire pit aglow with memories. Quarter horses are tacked and ready at the stables for trail and paddock rides. Shooting sports include guided quail, pheasant, turkey and wild hog hunts. Range facilities include five stand, sporting clays, trap and tower shoots.

“The club opened about three years ago and currently features 22 ranches, of which six have sold, and 23 cabins, of which 18 have sold, said Stephen Myers Jr., co-developer of the club. Given the current economic environment, executives have been pleased with sales, he added. The 40-acre parcels run from $800,000 to $1.2 million, and the ranch homes up to $3 million. Lakeside cabins range from $600,000 to $800,000.”
