Canadians are known for being fun loving, warm and welcoming with an engaging spirit. This also describes the environment at the Club at Boca Pointe – fun loving, warm and welcoming! It is a perfect marriage for seasonal Canadians!
For the fifth straight year, Canadians—from Montreal to Toronto—have adopted the Club at Boca Pointe as their winter country club. “Our Canadian members are typically members of country clubs in their home province so they have a strong sense of belonging and commitment,” says Helen Karpel, general manager of the only country club in South Florida where members decide on their own level of participation.
“The Club enjoys members from various parts of the globe – it is a treat to watch our members mix and mingle with each other, sharing different backgrounds. Our Canadian members are typically avid golfers – they arrive in golf clothes and carry a change of clothing for the night just as they do in their home clubs. They play 18 holes, do a quick change and spend the rest of the night dining and socializing.
“As a testament to their enjoyment, our members north of the border are quick to recommend the club to their friends, which there can be no better compliment to the Club than to recommend a friend. Those friends quickly agree that their experiences at the Club at Boca Pointe replicates their experiences at their home club and then they recommend friends. Who would ever believe that French Canadians would find the same qualities at a private club 1,600 miles south in Boca Raton, Florida?
The Club at Boca Pointe is a perfect fit for a number of reasons:
- Season memberships. Canadians are generally limited to a six-month stay in the U.S. The Club at Boca Pointe offers memberships from three to 12 months in the first year and from four to 12 months thereafter.
- You do not have to live in the Boca Pointe community to play there. Many of the Canadian members live elsewhere including the A1A corridor in Highland Beach, Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point and even Pompano Beach.
- Non-mandatory equity country club. The Premier membership program does not require the typical financial commitment associated with typical country club memberships. There is no buy-in investment required.
“We are the only country club in South Florida that offers a flexible, seasonal membership program,” says Karpel. “Our flexible Premier membership programs are what separates us from the others – a full country club experience without the typical costs.”
