Initially nothing more than a mangrove swamp, the 450 acre area that would become Lost Tree Village was transformed into land ready for development through clearing, filling, and dredging which began in 1959. It was the last remaining large ocean tract in Palm Beach County, and E. Llwyd Ecclestone happened upon this undeveloped land while bicycling in 1945. The original concept was a golf club named “Lost Tree” and its surrounding community named “Old Port Village,” although the name of the community was later changed to “Lost Tree Village.” The name Lost Tree can be traced back to the early 1800s. The first surveyors of the area used a gumbo limbo tree as their marker, but between strong storms and heavy winds, the tree had disappeared before the next survey was undertaken in the late 1800’s. A new tree was chosen as a replacement marker, but subsequent surveyors in 1913 could not find this tree either. This story of the vanished surveying markers suggested Lost Tree as an appropriate name. The associated emblem chosen for the Lost Tree Club was a pelican standing on the stump of a gumbo limbo tree.

Today, Lost Tree Village has a reputation as one of the most renowned private golf club communities in the country. The design of the community reflects the outstanding planning of its founders, and its unique location offers an exceptional level of luxury and privacy. With oceanfront, Intracoastal adjacent, golf course, and lakefront properties to choose from, as well as a wide variety of amenities, Lost Tree Village offers a uniquely exclusive experience.

Lost Tree Village History

Then and Now: The Lost Tree Golf Club. The original Golf Club was completed in 1961 and was much smaller than today's structure. At the time that the club opened, there were no homes and no one living in the community. The current Golf Club was recently re-built and opened in November 2012. It is a 26,000 square foot structure designed in the Island Classical Style that Lost Tree Village is known for.
