PRO TENNIS EVENT SCHEDULED FOR CLUB AT BOCA POINTE FEATURING STARS OF TOMORROW FEBRUARY 26TH TO MARCH 6TH; EVENT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Djokovic, Nadal, Federer! Get ready to move over! Your replacements maybe coming…coming from the first-ever ITF pro tennis tournament to be held at the Club at Boca Pointe, February 26 to March 6, when professional tennis players compete in the Diadem Pro Classic.

The USTA and ITF sanctioned event will feature 128 professional players ranked 280 and lower in the qualifying rounds, says Evan Specht tournament director. “Competition will be in men’s singles and doubles competing for $10,000 total prize money.

“These are the up and coming stars of tomorrow. While the players are not household names today, they are the rising stars that will work their way up the rankings and sometime could be sitting where the big names are today,” he said.

“This is part of the USTA’s commitment to help grow tennis in this country although the players will be competing from all over the world.”

Admission is free throughout the entire tournament. Everyone is welcome!

“We are excited to be hosting our first pro tennis tournament,” said Helen Karpel, general manager of the Club at Boca Pointe.

“This event gives us a great opportunity to show case not only our 16-Har Tru tennis courts, but our new state-of-art Sports and Fitness Complex. We have a new Tennis Director who continues to design new tennis activities for our members.

“We are the only country club in South Florida that features flexible, seasonal memberships where someone can get the amenities of a country club without the typical commitment for most country clubs. We feature a Premier Membership program that enables members to pick the activities they want to participate in and for as few as three months while in South Florida. No other private club offers this lifestyle convenience.”

Included in the tournament schedule on Sunday February 28 is the Magellan Tennis Academy’s Kids Day program whereby youngsters will be introduced to tennis through a fun clinic program followed by a pizza party. The Kids Day program—also part of the USTA initiative to grow the sport—will be from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. with the pizza party starting at 4 p.m.

The Kids Day program is open to all youngsters ages 4 and up whether they live at Boca Pointe or any place else. There is no cost for the clinic; at least one parent or guardian must be present for program participation.

The Diadem Pro Classic will be Sunday February 21 with a wild card event for entry into the main draw. February 26 and 29 are the four qualifying rounds as the field of 128 entrants is pared down to a final main draw of 32 players and 16 doubles teams.

The prize money and all the notoriety goes on the line with the first round of the main draw on March 1. The finals are being played March 6 at Stadium Court at the new Sports and Fitness Complex at the Club at Boca Pointe.

“This is very exciting for the Club at Boca Pointe to be hosting a pro event,” says Megan Hall, the new Tennis Director for the only private residential club in Florida where membership is open to the public. “We’ve never hosted an event of this caliber.

“It will be pretty exciting for our members to watch the future stars of the sport. In fact, we hope to engage the members into volunteering to help with the tournament!”

Boca Pointe’s Sports & Fitness Complex is conveniently located on Powerline/Jog Road between Hillsboro Blvd. and Palmetto Road. The address is 7134 Boca Pointe Drive, Boca Raton, FL 33433.

LOU BACHRODT COCONUT CREEK CHEVROLET/MAZDA RENEWS SPONSORSHIP OF MEMBER-GUEST GOLF TOURNAMENT AND LAUNCHES SPECIAL DISCOUNT PROGRAM FOR ALL BOCA POINTE RESIDENTS

83c57e287932100580ab20145efa6b30.png

For Boca Pointe residents in general and members of the Club at Boca Pointe in particular, the gift giving season is being extended well into the new year! This is thanks to the continued and extended golf sponsorship of the Men’s Golf Association by Lou Bachrodt Coconut Creek Auto Mall.

The linchpin of the sponsorship is the hole-in-one contests for the men’s member guest golf tournament January 28, 2016, and the Wounded Warrior event in March with both men and women competing. Up for grabs will be 2016 Chevrolet or a 2016 Mazda from Lou Bachrodt Coconut Creek Auto Mall.

These tournaments are only the tip of the iceberg for the sponsorship. Anyone residing in one of the Boca Pointe Villages will be eligible for a special Boca Pointe discount on the purchase of any new Chevrolet or Mazda vehicles from the Lou Bachrodt Coconut Creek Auto Mall.

This special offer is open to all residents whether or not they are members of the Club. All residents have to do is stop by the membership office on the lower level at the Clubhouse to pick up the special discount card. The special offer is exclusively for Boca Pointe residents and not available to the general public. For those residents who require gate access to come to the clubhouse, please call (561) 864-8539.

The sponsorship will include visibility at other major Men’s Golf Association tournaments during the year.

“We are excited to have renewed our sponsorship with the Club at Boca Pointe and to be a part of the Boca Pointe community,” says Erick Nunez, General Manager of Lou Bachrodt Coconut Creek Chevrolet/Mazda Auto Mall.

“We invite all Boca Pointe residents to view the cars that will be positioned at the main entrance of the Club on January 28th and if there are other viewing days, it will be announced. We will have a special discount on sales for all Boca Pointe residents who come to see the cars during these special events. We look forward to a great day and a wonderful partnership.”

“Our dealership is about six miles from the Club, and we offer a wide variety of cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles to fit all budgets and lifestyles. Chevrolet and Mazda are some of the most awarded vehicles on the road; we invite the residents and club members of Boca Pointe to come and experience all that Lou Bachrodt Coconut Creek Auto Mall has to offer… from our award-winning sales and service teams to our state-of-the-art collision center. We are here for you and look forward to a long-standing relationship with the members and residents of Boca Pointe.” shares Mr. Nunez.

“We would love for someone to win the car! That would be exciting for the dealership and, of course, the tournaments.” says Mr. Nunez.

Winning a car for tournament players is easy, right? “Sure” assures Buck Deibel, Director of Golf for the Club. “All a member or guest has to do is ace the par three 17th hole. For the men, the hole will play 171 yards and for the ladies, it will play 135 yards. It is not impossible. We have had hole-in-ones many times during the season, but then again put a car on the line and that changes the dynamics quite a bit. It adds a little more tension.” smiles Mr. Deibel.

The Club at Boca Pointe, a Boca Raton Golf and Country Club, is proud to share in this partnership with Lou Bachrodt Coconut Creek Auto Mall!

Golf Tip: Chipping Made Easy

By Buck Deibel, Golf Director at The Club at Boca Pointe, a Boca Raton Country Club

Chipping with a short to mid iron from just off the green is one of the most effective ways to hit a chip when you do not need to carry the ball far and you have moderate rough between your ball and the hole. This method is very similar to a putting stroke and has been used over the years by some of the greatest players in the game.

Depending on the amount of green you have to work with, choose the iron that will loft the ball a ¼ of the way and rolling the remaining 3/4s of the way to the cup. Many players hit this shot using their putting grip. At address, their weight is favoring their left side. With your hands slightly ahead, use your putting stroke and hit down on the ball with a descending blow. This swing takes the wrists out of the shot, making it easier to hit the ball solidly. This method also improves feel and helps control distance. Try this high percentage shot; it’s a sure way to lower your score.

The Club at Boca Pointe is a non-mandatory equity country club and has a professional golf staff available to its members daily, led by Buck Deibel, a PGA Master Professional. Golf members at the Club are excited with the completion of the golf renovations on its 18-hole championship golf course. Over the last two summers, the Club replaced the irrigation system, repaved the cart paths, replanted the fairways and tee boxes to celebration grass, and spruced up the collars around the greens.  If you are a golfer and not a member, yet, we encourage you to call membership at 561-864-8539 to learn about the many golf membership options. As a member, you will find Boca Pointe’s amenities wonderful and members very friendly!  The Club is entering a fabulous new era for our members!

THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE FLATTERED BY OTHER COUNTRY CLUBS DINING HERE

Flattery, it is often said, is the highest form of a compliment you can pay someone. If that is the case, the Club at Boca Pointe, a Boca Raton country club, is often “flattered” by the other country clubs in South Florida.

During the summer, many of the clubs in the area engage in a reciprocal program, which allow members to use each other’s golf and dining amenities. It is a fun way to “mix things up” over the summer.

“Many members from the other clubs flatter us regularly by choosing Boca Pointe over all the other clubs as their choice to dine,” says Helen Karpel, general manager of the Club at Boca Pointe. “It is not unusual for us to have 20 or more visitors from other clubs dining at Boca Pointe on one night, especially on a Friday night when we have a traditional buffet, full menu and dance music.

“Our club is open for dinner in the summer time six nights a week, which is much more than most clubs offer during the off-season. On Father’s Day, we had more than four tables of visitors from other clubs enjoying our unique celebration.

“It is very flattering when members are eager to enjoy our amenities. We view it as a wonderful compliment to what we offer our members year-round at the Club at Boca Pointe! It is an unsolicited endorsement of who we present ourselves to be and why we have such appeal to so many new members!”

If you are not a member of Boca Pointe yet, where members can define their own lifestyle through a unique Premier Membership program and many other options, please call the membership department today at 561-864-8539 to learn more. There are memberships available for residents, non-residents, year-round and seasonal South Floridians!

THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE SOLVES BIG QUESTION: WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR SPARE TIME?

The kids are back in school…the grandkids returned home to their parents…you are getting ready to have some “me” time, whether you live in Boca Pointe or are returning from your northern home to live in a nearby community!

Sound familiar? Bet it does!

So, what are you doing to fill the void? Some of you are perhaps working and others doing volunteer work; however, many of you are likely looking for something fun to do that will keep your body and mind active.   Did you know that you can achieve this by simply joining Boca Pointe?

The Club at Boca Pointe allows you to design and define your own lifestyle…a lifestyle that will be enriching and rewarding. If you are a year-round resident, you have two great options: equity and non-equity memberships available year-round. If you live in Florida part time, you may want to consider Boca Pointe’s unique seasonal, non-equity Premier membership.

The Club at Boca Pointe has a variety of memberships that are designed to specifically fit the “new” member who want to “try” out the Club, many of whom are still in the workplace. For example, Boca Pointe now offers two unique opportunities to use the new Sports and Fitness Complex along with other sports amenities.

These two 12 month membership programs, Family Sports and Family Sports & Golf, are afternoon type of memberships with access to the Club’s different sports amenities at varied times.  It is ideal for fitness minded people, working parents with families, and working people in general who mainly want to use the tennis and new Sports & Fitness Complex, while enjoying different golf options available between the two programs.  This grants access to the main clubhouse’s “To-Go” menu and dinner in the main clubhouse one time a month on a designated Thursday.

Since we know working people often like to go to the gym early, these afternoon membership make an exception for early morning access to the Sports Fitness Complex to get those endorphins flowing on state-of-the-art fitness equipment or a fitness classes before heading to work. We all know a good workout helps relieve stress and feel better, which is a great start to the day! Later in the day, you may want to return for a late day fitness class, cool dip in the pool, time on the tennis court, or a quick nine holes of golf before settling down at home. Or, perhaps mid-day, you may want to come by to just enjoy a “Cup of Joe” or light lunch at the new Freshe Pointe Café while meeting some new friends.

At the same time, if you want to just “tantalize your palate” with some fun between a very busy schedule, you could start as a Passport member of Boca Pointe. It offers 30 usages of the Club in a year, excluding social and special club event. On those 30 days, a Passport member can enjoy the Sports & Fitness Complex, Club pool, card rooms, dining, and the lounges, as well as complementary tennis after 11:30 a.m. and pay and play golf within certain tee time parameters.

The most popular and fastest growing non-equity membership at the Club at Boca Pointe, however, is Premier membership. The Premier Membership allows you to enjoy the club experience without the typical country club commitment. This membership has a unique twist in that you can design your lifestyle by membership category and pick the number of months you will be in Florida or how many months you want to fill your calendar with a more active lifestyle.

The Premier membership caters to both year-round and seasonal members.  It is for those living in Boca Pointe or the surrounding area for at least three consecutive months (ranging from the “snowbird” to those in the local area year round).  For the second year and thereafter, a minimum of four consecutive months is required for this membership.

All of the Premier membership categories include full usage of the new Sports & Fitness Complex, Club pool, card rooms, robust social events, dining facilities, and lounges, along with privileges to play tennis and golf, driven by the membership category chosen.  The social events range from a cruise, to going with friends to the theater, to diverse entertainment on the Boca Pointe campus, to day trips, to seminars from professors at local universities, to book clubs and art classes, the list goes on and on.

The Premier membership is so popular that every year we have a very high retention rate! This is largely because Premier members are at the club making new friends and building on existing friendships that inevitably create fond memories and enrich lives in a way that is invaluable. Boca Pointe becomes family!

We strongly encourage you to take advantage of Boca Pointe’s flexible membership options. Feel welcome to stop into the membership department or give us a call at 561-864-8539 to ask questions and learn about all of the options. We would love to welcome you to a new way of life – a club life – where your calendar is always full and the warm, friendly smiles are endless!

TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY, BUT TIS ALWAYS THE SEASON TO BE FIT AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE’S NEW SPORTS & FITNESS COMPLEX

treeThe season to be jolly is upon us already, but at the Club at Boca Pointe “tis always the season for fitness!”

This has become evident at the new state-of-the-art Sports & Fitness Complex with increased usage and the addition of new classes. “Since we opened the Sports & Fitness Complex in March, we have experienced a 20 to 30 percent increase in usage,” says Sherri Giannone, athletics director at the Club at Boca Pointe where members define their own lifestyle.

“We are not only increasing the number of classes we provide our members, but we are adding activities that are appealing to fitness conscious members in all age categories. There are several factors contributing to the increased usage, including the convenience of having the fitness facility near the main clubhouse.

“Our commitment is to provide members easy access as well as programming that will continue to enhance their lives and keep them coming with fresh activities. During the normally quieter summer months, we created unique programs like A Walk Across Florida, Men’s Health Fitness, Brain Fitness, Stress Management, and Health Expos. These programs led to a 20 percent increase in our typical off-season usage. Now as season is ramping up, usage is up nearly 30 percent.

“Not only have members been maintaining a healthier lifestyle, but many are also working with our personal trainers or using the on-premise licensed rehab center as needed. The increase usage for trainers and rehabbing during the summer was up 35 percent and continues to be strong as we are in season.

“We created two Family Sports and Fitness memberships that enable members to not only maintain a healthier lifestyle, but enjoy some of the benefits of country club living without the typical country club commitment. The difference between the two programs is in the golf privileges. Both memberships have full access to the Sports & Fitness Complex, Club pool, and tennis courts,” explains Giannone.

The Club at Boca Pointe is a non-mandatory equity country club, which means it offers equity and non-equity memberships. The membership offerings are robust to meet the lifestyles of year-round residents, seasonal Floridians and the one who visits South Florida on and off throughout the year. Membership ranges from social privileges to sports only to social and sports in combination. To learn more about the many memberships available at Boca Pointe, please call at 561-864-8539.

REVITALIZED GOLF COURSES AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE GETS RAVES FROM GOLF MEMBERS

BOCA POINTE 196golfcartOne month into the season and the word “WOW” echoes throughout the Club at Boca Pointe when golf members describe their experiences playing on the newly, revitalized 18-hole golf course. “The members are excited! They are thrilled to have their beautiful 18-hole championship golf course now fully open after our two-year, multi-million dollar investment program,” says Buck Deibel, Director of Golf for the only country club in South Florida where members can design their own lifestyle activities.

“Last year, we renovated the fairways and tee boxes going to Celebration Bermuda grass on the front nine in the off-season, while the members enjoyed playing the back nine,” says Deibel. “At the same time we revitalized the front nine, we installed a state-of-art irrigation system for the entire course as well as repaved all the cart paths.

“This year, we completed the renovation project on the back nine, with the front nine open for members to play in the off-season. We elected to keep one nine open at all times for the convenience of our members. In addition, we added new landscaping and trees throughout the course, which gives Boca Pointe a whole new look!”

Is the Club at Boca Pointe finished with its revitalization program?

“Not by a long shot,” says Deibel. “Next year, we are tackling the roughs and some areas where some pesky weeds still reside. The Club’s board is committed to the golf program and continuing to enhance the members golfing experience. There is always more work to be done on a golf course, whether it is eliminating newly surfaced weeds or freshening the sand traps; Boca Pointe believes in a steady program of course management.”

Did the revitalization program pay off?

“Absolutely!” says Deibel. “We are enjoying many new members on the golf course as well as receiving many positive comments from our year-round and returning seasonal golf members.”

The Club at Boca Pointe offers both equity and non-equity memberships. Its unique and highly popular, non-equity Premier membership program allows a member to choose among eight membership categories, starting with a social membership with the option to add golf and tennis in some combination. All Premier membership categories include full usage of the new Sports & Fitness Complex, Club pool, card rooms, robust social events, and dining facilities.

In addition to all the social and fitness privileges, the Premier Full Golf membership categories include morning and afternoon play as well as coverage of the cart and green fees. Additionally, the golf categories include bag storage and locker for one or two as well as unlimited access to the golf driving range and short game complex along with a 7 day in advance sign-up privilege and access to league play.

More uniquely, the Premier membership is good for seasonal and year-round members. Seasonal Premier members can design their membership for however many months they reside in South Florida, taking as few as three consecutive months their first year of membership and as few as four consecutive months for the second year and thereafter.

For year-round Floridians, who are non-residents of Boca Pointe and whose main interest is golf, we also offer a non-equity Annual Golf membership for singles and couples. This membership gives non-resident golfers the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful 18-hole championship golf course, golf driving range and practice area on an unlimited basis, as well as access to enjoy our restaurants for lunch or brunch and our lounges

Similar to the Premier Full Golf, Annual Golf memberships also include morning and afternoon play as well as coverage of the cart and greens fees. Annual Golf memberships include bag storage and locker for one or two as well as unlimited access to the golf driving range and short game complex along with a 7-day in advance sign-up privilege and access to league play.

The Club has seen a significant increase in its golf memberships with the completion of the revitalization program. Undoubtedly, this interest will only continue to grow as more and more Floridians learn about Boca Pointe’s many golf options! We welcome you to call the membership department at 561-864-8539 to learn about the Premier and Annual Golf memberships as well as other golf membership options.
