These little town blues are melting away. I’ll make a brand new start of it in old New York! These words were popularized by Frank Sinatra, but “old blue eyes” didn’t know about the unique Premier membership at the Club at Boca Pointe.
Had he known, he might have added a line or two about New Yorkers trying to escape the harsh winters to take advantage of the unique seasonal membership program offered exclusively at the Club at Boca Pointe. New Yorkers are by far the largest group of snowbirds that continue to take advantage of the Premier memberships, which afford members to live outside of the Boca Pointe community and play at the Club.
Boca Pointe is the only full service equity country club in South Florida that is not mandatory equity membership. This means that members belong to the Club because they want to, not because they are forced to by community rules. Boca Pointe offers both equity and non-equity memberships.
“At the Club at Boca Pointe,” says Helen Karpel, general manager, “we consider ourselves like a blended family. We do have a passionate group of equity members, but now we also have a strong and passionate group of Premier members.
“This blended family has created a culture that is unique to country club playing. Both equity and Premier members can literally define their own lifestyle by choosing the category that best meets their lifestyle interests. The Premier members are also able to match their seasonal stay with the number of months in which they want to participate. They are offered membership for as few as three consecutive months for the first year and as few as four months thereafter depending upon the members’ lifestyle.
“We see some exciting trends,” says Ms. Karpel. “Premiers start enjoying the Club at Boca Pointe for three or four months the first year and then they are slowly increasing the number of months as their own lifestyle changes and Florida living is extended. Members may own or lease in South Florida during their seasonal stay and take advantage of the Premier membership.”
By far, the largest contingent of Premier memberships are from the state “Old Blue Eyes” popularized, followed closely by surrounding states of New Jersey and the rest of the mid-Atlantic corridor. As the winter snow falls, Florida living grows – at least during the seasonal months!
Boca Pointe’s blended family includes members from the District of Columbia, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania to name a few as well as a good, solid group from Canada and even members from England and Latin America!
“The beauty of the membership is that the Club at Boca Pointe provides typical country club amenities without the typical country club equity financial commitment. And, the enjoyment had by our seasonal members is confirmed by our high retention/renewal rate year after year by our Premier members,” adds Ms. Karpel.
