The game of golf may have been invented
in Scotland, but it was perfected in Palm Beach County. There are more golf
courses here than anywhere in the country - approximately 145 public and
private courses that will challenge golfers of every playing ability. And
the luxurious, gated country club communities offer variety and exclusivity
in homes and recreational amenities.
For the residents of Boca's private golf course communities, it is the
many athletic and recreational outlets, such as magnificent golf courses,
tennis and fitness centers, fabulous country club facilities, and the terrific
year-round climate that are the area's prime attractions. Royal Palm Yacht & Country
Club even offers yachting with stunning Intracoastal and canal front homes,
as well as fairway settings.
Golf course homes take advantage of every idyllic setting and the spectacular beauty of the courses. Homes are nestled amongst the quiet solitude of lush green fairways, sparkling lakes, magestic oaks and graceful palms - a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the fast life.
Some of the communities have one golf course, several offer more - St. Andrews, Broken Sound, and the Polo Club have two, Addison Reserve has three, and Boca West offers four courses. Equity memberships in the different communities also offer a variety of options ranging from $12,000 for social and tennis equities plus optional golf equities, to a high of $80,000 for all inclusive memberships in the luxury single family developments.
Country Club amenities also include elegant clubhouses providing lounges, casual and gourmet dining, year-round social activities and pro shops. The Tennis and Fitness/Aquatic Centers provide tennis courts, Olympic-size pools and spas, snack bars, state of the art fitness facilities, personalized training and scheduled classes.
