The former owner of the Martin Downs Country Club in Palm City, Wellington mega-developer and president of the Palm Beach Polo & Country Club, Glenn Straub, is under criminal investigation, according to the Broward State Attorney’s Office.

Straub has a litigious reputation with a trail of lawsuits to his name, records show.

His latest legal skirmish is a suit his company filed Aug. 9 against another woman, Ashley Maguire, a former Mrs. Florida beauty pageant winner.

The company is suing Maguire for $250,000.

Maguire, 33, failed to live up to “a working arrangement” as repayment for more than $100,000 the company paid to lease her a home at the polo club and provide her with luxury vehicles, according to the lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

“[Maguire] claimed to have strong ties in Wellington with wealthy equestrians and wealthy business executives with whom she could use her beauty and charms in assisting with selling expensive country club memberships, sponsorships and promotions,” the lawsuit said. “Defendant never commenced a single day of work for, or on behalf of, plaintiff.”
