Safety & Security
Four generations of Ocean Reef families and their guests benefit from the safety and security that has been put into place to protect US Presidents and foreign dignitaries including Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, George Bush (41 & 43), Barack Obama, Mikhail Gorbachev and Francois Mitterrand. Each visit required state-of-the-art security that has stayed in place to protect us all.
John and I lost a dear friend, one of the greatest football players in the history of the game. Jim Taylor played on four N.F.L. championship teams with the Green Bay Packers of the 1960s. He became the first star in Coach Vince Lombardi’s dynasty to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He also scored the first rushing touchdown in Super Bowl history!
Our relationship with Jim goes back over 25 years. He has been our guest at the Legends Invitational at Pebble Beach. Our daughters and our son-in-laws played golf with him at the event.
We were delighted to host Jim and his wife, Helen, at our Skybox for the Super Bowl played in Miami (Green Bay vs. New Orleans Saints). We invited Jim and Helen to Ocean Reef on numerous occasions including the Reef Cup and a book signing.
We will miss Jim very much.
-Mary & John
John and I were delighted to initiate the reciprocal between the New York Athletic Club and Ocean Reef Club as part of Ocean Reef’s Affiliate Program. Ocean Reef Club and the New York Athletic Club, with its 9000 members, are two of the finest clubs in the world. Both are totally debt free. This fall John and I, along with the New York Athletic Club and Ocean Reef Club are hosting an invitation only reception at the New York Athletic Club. We also hosted hundreds of New York Athletic Club members at Ocean Reef. I am proud to have represented many of our friends, who are prominent members at the New York Athletic Club, in the purchase of properties at Ocean Reef. We will also be advertising my listings in the Winged Foot magazine throughout the coming season.

The possession of wealth, including its inheritance, may unlock newfound opportunities for the individual as well as the family. Ideas for putting the new wealth into action abound, but so, too, do questions about responsibility, management, lifestyle and ultimately what to do with the wealth. Hugh share insights on the transfer of wealth across generations, as well as the familial and social expectations that often accompany gifts and inheritances. You can view the presentation here
