OUR STORY

Developer Ira Fenton and former New York Giant Tucker Frederickson who were part of the team that developed The Bear’s Club and The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club & Spa, Jupiter (now Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter), came up with the idea three years ago. Through their connections in South Florida, including landlord and partner, Bjarne Borg, they found other like-minded individuals who were interested in bringing something fresh and new to northern Palm Beach County.

Joining Fenton, Frederickson, and Borg as founding partners of 1000 NORTH are Ernie Els, Michael Jordan, Bill Terlato, Morton Bouchard, Vincent Cerone, Russell and Lauren Fuchs, Raj Mantena, Stephen Mendell, Marvin Shanken, Rick Stoddard, Richard Rifkin, and Charles and Kathryn Theofilos. Since the original group came together, many professional athletes and celebrities have joined the partnership team.

“We wanted to give guests something they can’t find in our area – an experience many people travel to Miami or New York to get. We’re bringing that to Jupiter, and topping it off with a beautiful waterfront view of the Jupiter Lighthouse. Those coming to 1000 NORTH can even arrive by boat if they prefer. Our 350-foot dock will be open to guests,” Fenton said.

Fenton was a partner with Michael Pascucci of Melville, New York, in the development of The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Creighton Farms in Aldie, Virginia. Fenton identified and assisted Pascucci in the land acquisition for Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, New York, and served as a consultant in its development.

Prior to joining Golden Bear International, Fenton was executive vice president of Fogelman Properties, a Memphis, Tenn.-based apartment developer and manager of more than 15,000 units. He was responsible for structuring, negotiating, and raising more than $1 billion of debt and equity financing, and supervised all acquisitions.

CLAUDIA McCAIG

Director of Marketing and Membership

In 2016, Claudia worked alongside Ira Fenton and Tucker Frederickson during the conception of what is now known as 1000 NORTH. She was the very first employee and has witnessed its growth and success from the start. Born in Colombia, South America, Claudia’s family immigrated to Long Island, New York, when she was a child. While working in restaurants in The Hamptons, she realized hospitality was her calling, and with a passion for the ocean, she relocated to Florida in 1985, continuing her work in the hospitality industry.

Claudia’s relationship with Mr. Fenton led her to a key role at 1000 NORTH, focusing on the membership program. What makes 1000 NORTH unique is not only the quality food and drink offered, but the value of the membership program and its members. Claudia is the face of the membership program, the woman behind the exclusive Club Lounge and rave-worthy member events throughout the year. She ensures that each member is treated with the utmost respect and enjoys the finest dining experience in Palm Beach County.
