Wayne Huizenga, the billionaire former owner of the Miami Dolphins, quietly sold The Floridian Golf & Yacht Club, his prized private Palm City playground.
The price, according to the deed filed this week, was $25.6 million.
The clubhouse, from the St. Lucie River
Huizenga originally bought the property, which straddles the Martin-St. Lucie counties line, in 1996 for $750,000, according to St. Lucie County records.
He built a world-class clubhouse, guest cottages, deep water docks on the St. Lucie River and a 300-acre golf course designed by legendary designer Gary Player. Huizenga didn’t respond to a request for an interview, but he claimed in a Business Week interview in 2003 that he sunk $75 million into the place.
