“MEMBERSHIP HAS ITS PRIVILEGES” THE CREDIT CARD SLOGAN THAT ENCAPSULATES THE ESSENCE OF THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE

copy-homegraphic1.jpg“Membership has its privileges,” says one famous credit card company as its major marketing theme.  The same message resonates among members at the Club at Boca Pointe! Membership at the Club not only offers many exciting privileges to fill your calendar, but it is also designed with several exceptionally unique benefits.

There are three major differences that separate the Club at Boca Pointe from other equity country club communities in the South Florida area.

First, you can enjoy all the opportunities the Club provides WITHOUT the typical financial commitment of an equity country club community. Translated, this means new members may join with no upfront costs such as equity, bonds or initiation fees.

Secondly, the Club at Boca Pointe is the only full service country club that offers flexible non-equity memberships for both those who live in Boca Pointe and those who live outside the gates. This is the mantra for the Club: developing new membership programs that are appealing to the diverse group of demographics in the area.  In other words, the Club has a membership program to fit many personal lifestyle and needs.

Thirdly and by no means lastly, the members create an inviting atmosphere to all of the membership types.  Each of the country clubs in South Florida has a unique persona, including this Club.  The persona of the Club at Boca Pointe is one to be proud of – it has the warmest, friendliest and most caring members with no airs or pretenses.

It is common to walk through the beautiful Club and have members smile and say hello to you whether or not they know you or your stature in the community. Whether you rent or own, live on or off the premises, are year-round or spend a few months at the Club, there is a program designed to give you the country club experience and a membership to welcome you aboard.

The Club at Boca Pointe is always proactively listening and introducing new appealing membership opportunities.  It is an exciting environment.  The Club already offers many flexible, non-equity memberships along with the opportunity to be an equity member.

As an equity member, you are part owner in the club, have voting rights and may serve on the Board.  In addition to these exclusive privileges, equity members receive complimentary houseguest passes for visiting adult children and grandchildren, six complimentary golf rounds  for guests of golf equity members, advanced reservations to high profile social events, along with  many other perks.  All equity members have full usage of the Sports & Fitness Complex, pool, card rooms, robust social events, and dining facilities – three restaurants and two lounges, along with privileges to play tennis and golf, driven by the membership category chosen.

Members often desire to start as a non-equity member knowing they have the option to become an equity member at any time.  We currently offer five very appealing non-equity options with varied membership periods, from 30 days to seasonal to year-round.  The following provides a good introduction to these memberships:

  • Premier Membership (Seasonal to Year Round membership)

This is our most popular program offered to residents and non-residents of Boca Pointe. There are eight categories of selection in this option ranging from a Club (Social) membership to adding various Golf and Tennis combinations.  The total dues depend on how many consecutive months are taken and the category level chosen.

The Premier membership is for those living in the Boca Raton area for at least three consecutive months the first year.  For the second membership year and thereafter, a minimum of four consecutive months is required for membership. Similar to the equity member, all of the Premier categories include full usage of the Sports & Fitness Complex, pool, card rooms, robust social events, and dining facilities – three restaurants and two lounges, along with privileges to play tennis and golf, driven by the membership category chosen.

To view our current Club Life for a better understanding of the programs our Social Director arranges for Equity and non-equity Premier members to enjoy, please visit the home page of our website (www.bocapointecc.com) and click on “The Club,” “Social,” “Download our Club Life.”

The next three non-equity memberships are available to “new” members only; new members are considered residents and non-residents of Boca Pointe who are not current or former members of the country club.

  • Sports & Fitness Memberships (12 Month membership)

It offers 30 days of Club usage in a year and includes full Club privileges, including the Sports & Fitness Complex, pool, card rooms, and dining facilities – three restaurants and two lounges, along with privileges to play tennis and golf.  The membership excludes social events, club events and dining/golf reciprocals.

Annual Tennis members are eligible to be on tennis teams, attend clinics, attend “tennis only” social functions, participate in club championships, use the ball machine, and take lessons with tennis professionals. Fees may apply.  Annual Tennis members have access to the Freshe Pointe Café & Patio.  Annual Tennis members do not have access to the main clubhouse to dine unless it is part of a “tennis” event.

Noteworthy, unmarried children and grandchildren under 22 years of age are considered dependents and part of the membership.  The only exception to this policy is with the Sports & Fitness and Annual Tennis memberships in which those dependents must be residing in the household to be part of your membership.

How could there be more, right?  There is…

For former equity members who left the Club prior to September 1, 2013 (have been away from the Club for at least 3 fiscal years), there are several Alumni equity programs available along with reactivating their equity membership.  The Club offers a 7 to 12 month Alumni Premier Social or Tennis membership, a 12 month Alumni Annual Golf membership, and a 12 month Alumni Annual Tennis membership.

Unquestionably, the Club at Boca Pointe is the most flexible non-mandatory equity club in South Florida! The Club is progressive and constantly looking to modernize itself for member appeal.

Did you know that the Club at Boca Pointe has completed many projects to make it even more popular to join?  These enhancements include renovating the 18-hole championship golf course, opening of the new state-of-the-art Sports & Fitness Complex conveniently located by the clubhouse, redesigning the clubhouse’s main lobby upstairs as well as redesigning the downstairs restaurant, bar and lobby.  Ask any member – the members are enjoying a fabulous new era at the Club!

FLEXIBLE MEMBERSHIPS GROW AT CLUB AT BOCA POINTE AS MORE AND MORE JOIN

The blending of Equity members and Non-Equity Premier members at the Club at Boca Pointe becomes the cutting edge of a new wave for those who want the country club experience without the typical country club financial commitment.

“We are not only unique, but we are setting a trend in the industry,” says Helen Karpel, general manager of the only private country club in South Florida that offers an extremely flexible membership program.

“While we welcome Premier members to convert to equity, and some do yearly, it is not mandatory. This freedom largely contributes to the Premier membership’s appeal, resulting in the robust growth of the Premier membership program with minimal turnover.”

What makes the Premier membership so unique and appealing is simple:

  • Members can pick the number of months they wish to belong from three months to 12 months the first year and then from four to 12 months thereafter.
  • Members do not have to live at Boca Pointe to play there.
  • Members can choose the level of participation from social to tennis to golf.  They have the same category choices as the equity members with very similar privileges.

“There are some interesting and exciting facts about the Premier Membership program,” adds Karpel.

  • The return of migration continues to benefit not only South Florida, but the Club at Boca Pointe because it is non-mandatory.  Members, regardless of where they live, want to be members.
  • The number of months that Premiers decide to “buy” continues to increase each year and the members extending the time period beyond that season’s   initial commitment continues to increase.
  • The level of involvement in club life continues to grow.  “This year alone, we have seen many more Premier Golf members join the Ladies and Men’s golf leagues as well as many more overall Premier members playing cards and using the fitness center.  Additionally, our dining rooms continue to show healthy gains in usage.”

The Club at Boca Pointe continuously enhances its physical amenities as well as its memberships.  In the last several years, members are enjoying a new upstairs lobby, new downstairs restaurant, lounge and lobby, an improved golf course, and a new sports and fitness complex – all without an assessment.  This upcoming summer more enhancements will be introduced.  It is a fabulous time to be a member at the Club – to have a place to bring guests and be proud.

Joining the Club is as simple as taking the first step to learn more about the many membership opportunities and how they meet your interests.  The Club welcomes you to call 561-864-8539 to ask questions, set up an appointment and even take a tour of the Club.

FACIALS VITAL TO HEALTHY SKIN AND AVAILABLE AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE A CLUB MEMBER

Woman receiving facial mask at beauty salonBy Lori Decibel | Member Services Director | The Club at Boca Pointe

You’re out in the sun playing golf or tennis perhaps swimming or just walking.  You cannot avoid that if you live in beautiful South Florida in general or the Club at Boca Pointe in particular.  Hopefully, you are protected with sunscreen.

While sunscreen is a must, so is maintaining your skin…and one way to do that is with regularly scheduled facials at the Sports & Fitness Complex in the Spa. Open to anyone, whether you are a club member or not, facials are very important to maintaining that young healthy look.

What are the benefits of a basic facial? Basic facials deeply cleanse skin and may help fight certain skin problems, such as mild acne or dryness. The treatments are very relaxing and leave faces glowing.

Although it is possible to achieve healthy skin at home, many people turn to skincare professionals when they need some extra help.  One treatment they often turn to is the basic facial. Though the name is unassuming, the treatment can truly benefit skin, especially because every facial is tailored to the individual’s skin type.

A basic facial cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. It is meant to rejuvenate faces and pamper clients.

Aestheticians massage a cleanser into the face, neck, and décolletage to remove any traces of makeup and dirt. Using warm water paired with a facial sponge, cloth, or cotton pad, they remove the cleanser, dry faces, and evaluate skin. This step helps them determine what type of custom mask they will apply later.

Next, aestheticians buff away dead skin cells with an exfoliating cream or scrub and opens up pores with steam. At this point, they may perform extractions. This process is done to clear individual pores that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can form blackheads and acne. Aestheticians will perform the extractions either by hand or with a special metal tool. Following that process is a relaxing massage of the face—and often the upper body, too—that may be used to improve lymphatic drainage.

Aestheticians then apply a custom mask, perhaps a clay-based one to treat oiliness or a hydrating one to combat dryness. Finally, the facial concludes with a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen if it is daytime. And, when you are finished, your face feels like and looks like a new face.
spaThat’s one of several services offered at the Spa in the Sports & Fitness Complex.  It is available to anyone – you do not have to be a member of the Club to take advantage of healthy skin. Appointments are available Monday through Saturday; please contact Rachel at 561- 929-8400 to book your appointment!

 

PREMIER MEMBERSHIPS STILL SETTING HOT PACE AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE

Because the Club at Boca Pointe has the solution to the most typical questions being asked by those who want a country club experience without the typical country club commitment.

“The Premier membership continues to be a huge success with a very high renewal rate,” says a proud Helen Karpel, general manager of the Club.  “We have members from areas such as Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, as well as throughout Boca Raton and all the way up to Highland Beach.

“The high retention rate demonstrates that we have the right membership programs that provide a rewarding country club experience with a reasonable pricing structure.  Many of our Premier members are accustomed to driving up to 30 minutes to the Club, which is very familiar to those from the Northeast where the clubs are non-residential.” Karpel adds.

WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE; THEY ARE LINED OUT THE DOOR FOR DINNER – SOMETHING HOT MUST BE GOING ON!

Lined out the door for dinner!  What is going on at the Club at Boca Pointe?

“In all the years I have been here, I’ve never seen this before,” says Helen Karpel, general manager of the only country club in South Florida where members do not have to live or play or dine.

“We’re seeing dinner room covers like we’ve never seen before,” she adds.  “Two weeks ago, we had more than 500 covers; this past Friday night we blew through 400 covers.

“While season is always busy and the holiday breaks bring in family in town, this year has been especially active. Our Club has really found its stride now that most of the upstairs and downstairs areas have been enhanced with recent renovations.  Members are filled with pride in their Club and finding the Club to be the place to be!

“Yet, we expect this to continue year round. The covers take a small dip in off-season – maybe a little more than 300 covers – but it is still lively and fun.  This is especially the case with the monthly soirees in off-season that invites a band in the restaurant to entertain while dining.  Off-season will kick off with a soiree in May – Happy Daze – then in June – the Rhythm Chicks, and in July – the Euphoria Duo.  It is sure to be lots of dancing and laughs. In addition to our member enjoyment in the dining area, we have a reciprocal dining program welcomes other high-end Clubs to dine at our Club.  Many outsiders from these other exclusive clubs find the Club at Boca Pointe their first choice!”

CLUBS WITHIN THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS & BUILD LIFELONG MEMORIES

BOCA-POINTE 9 (1)An excitement can be felt at the Club as people see, hear and learn that the Club at Boca Pointe offers something fun for everyone…no matter the person’s background, age or hometown – local, national or international.

Whether your passion is playing a game of golf or tennis, attending a lecture about the Middle East or a lighter subject, playing cards or Mah Jongg in the very active card rooms, enjoying dinner in the new Grand Café, dining in the two other excellent restaurants, or taking a fitness class in the Sports & Fitness Complex – there is always something to fill your calendar!  As a member of the Club at Boca Pointe you can decide how full your calendar will become each and every week!

boca-pointe-132One of the very appealing benefits of joining a country club is the opportunity to connect with other members who become good friends and share the same interests as you.  You can be sure that there is something for every personality!  For whatever free time you have on your calendar, the Club will have a great option for you to enjoy that time!  In addition to your sports and fitness opportunities, you can make dining and happy hour plans weekly as well as fill that calendar with a variety of social activities.

You can play bridge, canasta, Mah Jongg or just about any other game in the card rooms but that, too, is just the tip of the iceberg.  There are close to 300 different events scheduled during the year by Jane Young, the Club at Boca Pointe’s social director.  The events range from the only FAU Learning Center in South Florida away from the FAU campus (featuring top professors talking about interesting topics) to Broadway shows to a Showtime series with top talent coming to the Club.

Some might say, “Enough already!”  But at the Club at Boca Pointe, enough is never enough to keep the members engaged, happy and clamoring for more.  The Club at Boca Pointe is the only country club in South Florida where members can literally define their own membership—the activities when and where they want to participate.

That’s right! The Club at Boca Pointe is not your typical “father or grandfather’s country club.”  It is a club for today – it is progressive and flexible in its country club approach.  Yes, Boca Pointe has the traditional golf course, tennis, and athletic center, but that is where the “traditional” ends.

“We feature clubs within the country club that are designed to further build friendship where people of like interests can meet and share experiences,” says Helen Karpel, general manager of the “happening” Club at Boca Pointe.  “Whenever people of like interests can get together it just strengthens relations and helps build new friendships.”

Some of the Club’s groups are targeted for specific audiences such as the Boomers, Boca Unos (singles), and Today Life Continues.  Members can participate in these groups by just checking the calendar each week.  The groups offer a variety of activities catering to a targeted audience.

boca-pointe-47The Club at Boca Pointe is the only club in South Florida that offers flexible memberships where members can define their own lifestyle for as few as three consecutive months the first year while in sunny Boca Raton. “Our Premier membership program is one of the hottest tickets in town,” beams Ms. Karpel.  “Floridians and/or renters can become first time members and take advantage of the menu of opportunities offered under the Premier membership program. Former equity members – who left the Club prior to September 1, 2013 – may return as a Premier Social or Tennis member for seven to 12 months.”

The biggest club on campus is the Adventurers Club made up of more than 200 members.  Created in the 1990s, the Adventurers Club is dedicated to creating events that members would not normally undertake on their own or through the traditional club activities. There is a waiting list for join – but it is well worth the wait!

The newest group is “What’s Up.”  As its name indicates, it features speakers discussing what is happening in the world around us.  The speakers and subjects are topical and provide members with a unique perspective as to what is happening.

In addition to the Adventurers Club and What’s Up, there are many other attractive clubs – the Photography Club, Volunteer Club, and Creative Writing group to name a few. “We encourage our members to create clubs around common interests in addition to participating in the extremely active calendar of existing clubs,” adds Karpel.  “But with that said, if a member just wants to enjoy the casual Boca Pointe lifestyle, we encourage that as well…maybe sitting by the pool reading a book and basking in the warm sun sounds like the perfect day for you!

“The concept of clubs within a club is important to know about because it helps understand the robust nature of the Club’s social activities.  Simply put, the Club at Boca Pointe offers a way to make friends, create memories and love life.

The Premier membership is available from three to 12 consecutive months the first year and then from four to 12 months thereafter.  Members can pick and choose their activity level from Club/social to adding golf, tennis, or a combination of both.  Premier Members are enjoying the full benefit of a country club experience without making the traditional year-round, buy-in financial commitment of most private country clubs.  For members wishing to mainly play golf or tennis, there are also annual memberships available.

“The Club at Boca Pointe is different – it is life changing because it opens up a new world to you.  The Premier membership allows you to try it out for several months and then extend that membership once you realize what a wonderful time you area having at the Club.”  Do you want to know more?  The Club welcomes you to call 561-864-8539 to set up a visit, take a tour, and learn about the many membership options available to meet your own unique lifestyle!

MEMBERS AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE WANT TO BE MEMBERS OF ONE OF THE BEST COUNTRY CLUBS IN BOCA RATON, AS A CHOICE RATHER THAN AN OBLIGATION

boca-pointe-1What defines members of one country club over another, asks one prospective member at the Club at Boca Pointe?

“Simple,” says Helen Karpel, general manager of the Club at Boca Pointe. “At the Club at Boca Pointe, members want to belong…they want to be part of an extended family…they want to enjoy friendships and have companions to share life in the good times as well as hard times.  At other private country clubs in South Florida, if you live in the Club’s community, you have to be a member; this is not the case at Boca Pointe.

“Most of the country clubs in South Florida are mandatory equity.  The members must live on property, and as property owners, they have no choice other than to be a member of the Club.  The Club at Boca Pointe is considered a non-mandatory equity club, which means property owners join because they want to be a member – it is a choice that the Club appreciates and strives to show that appreciation through outstanding service and friendliness.

“Additionally, the Club welcomes members who do not live in the Boca Pointe community.  You can live a couple of miles away in an adjacent town like Highland Beach, Deerfield Beach or Pompano Beach and whether you own or rent you are welcome to become a member of the Club at Boca Pointe.” Ms. Karpel emphasizes.

“Members choose to join the Club for many reasons, one of which is the Club’s reputation as being the warmest, friendliest and most social club in the area.  Members treat each other like extended family.  If a member has a problem, illness or family issue another member or two or three is there to help.  Friendly smiles and warn hellos are heard throughout the Club!” she adds.

The Club at Boca Pointe, a country club in Boca, has a welcoming menu of membership options for seasonal and year-round Floridians that allows members to define their own lifestyle of activities.  For example, the Premier membership program offers eight appealing categories for as few as three consecutive months the first year and as few as four consecutive months the second year and thereafter with the option to take as many as 12 months.  This membership is available without the financial commitment typical of mandatory country clubs (no equity, no bonds).

All of the Premier members enjoy Club privileges, which includes all social activities, events, dining opportunities (three restaurants and two lounges), card rooms, Mah Jongg, and the Sports and Fitness Complex.  Tennis and golf can be added to the membership.

The Club at Boca Pointe also offers an Annual Golf membership for those who want to play on a championship 18-hole golf course as opposed to playing at public courses. This membership is perfect for the avid golfer who just wants to play golf and enjoy some dining privileges.

For new members who want to start at a slower pace, there are three attractive introductory memberships.  They include the 30 day Passport membership and Annual Tennis and Annual Sports & Fitness memberships.

With so many options, the Club at Boca Pointe encourages you to call 561-864-8539 to learn about the one that meets your needs the best!

PREMIER MEMBERSHIP INQUIRIES HEAT UP AS MORE AND MORE PEOPLE HEAD TO THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE

When you’re hot, you’re hot!  This is what Helen Karpel, general manager of the Club at Boca Pointe says when describing the on-going response to the unique Premier membership offered exclusively by the club.

“We have a considerable amount of research into determining what is happening in the marketplace and what is attractive to new residents and those spending the winters in South Florida.  Among the things the Club at Boca Pointe learned:

  • People want a country club experience without the typical financial commitment of a country club.
  • People want flexibility in being able to choose what types of activities they will participate in.
  • People do not want to make long-term commitments.
  • People want to be able to live where they want and play at a country club that is just like their Northern situation.
  • People want a membership to coincide with the time they are in South Florida.

“These wishes embody the essence of our Premier membership,” Karpel adds.  “We fashioned the Premier membership offering to match exactly what our research told us.”

A Premier member at the Club at Boca Pointe can:

  • Live anywhere they want and play at the Club at Boca Pointe.
  • Become a member for as little as three months for the first year and then a minimum of four months every year thereafter.  The Club has many members who started with the minimum and grew into a full 12-month Premier members as their life-styles changed.
  • Choose any level of activity starting with the basic club/social membership, which entitles them to the full run of the club.  This includes all dining and lounge facilities, themed dinner dances, lectures, many other social events, use of the Sports and Fitness Complex, Club pool, and card / Mah Jongg rooms.  Golf and tennis privileges are driven by the category chosen within the Premier membership, which permits avid golfers and tennis players to add golf or tennis privileges in different combinations.

“All of this access to the Club is without the typical upfront buy-in financial commitment required by most country clubs whether they are in South Florida or elsewhere in the country,” she adds. “Our inquiry level from new prospective Premier members is running very high.  We continue to get inquires from the Northeast corridor, Chicago, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Canada and even as far away as California.

“The beauty of the Premier Member is their ability to blend right in.  There is never anyone sitting on the sidelines waiting for a bridge or canasta game or a tee-time or tennis game.  Our staff as well as equity members make sure that the Premier members are engaged in the activities in which they have chosen as part of their membership.  This is one of the main reasons our retention rate for returning Premier members is very high.”

FINAL CONSTRUCTION PHASE FOR GOLF AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE STARTS IN MAY, BUT GOLFERS LOOK TOWARD ACTIVE SUMMER PLAY

By Lori DeibelMember Services Director | The Club at Boca Pointe | 561- 864-8539

Boca Raton Golf Club  Can you believe the “season” is almost over?!  Off-season always creeps up faster than we expect, and with a new season always comes healthy change. 

For members at the Club at Boca Pointe who are year-round Floridians, it typically means saying goodbye to seasonal members who are near and dear but looking towards next year’s reunion while enjoying the summer. It also means a time of less traffic in the community, more room for a Friday night dinner at the main dining room or even a Saturday dinner at the club’s sparkling new Grand Café, which has become one of the hot new restaurants for members and their guests.

Just as springtime ushers in the growth and renewal of plant life, spring and summertime at the Club at Boca Pointe ushers in its own “growing season” for the Club’s upgraded fairways.  With the fairways cleared and Celebration grass planted over the 2014 and 2015 summers, each season the grass grows in thicker and the play is better!

This off-season is also ushering in the completion of the renovations in the golf area for the Club at Boca Pointe.  “Plans are being finalized for the makeover of the men’s locker room and the golf pro shop,” says Helen Karpel, general manager of the Club.  “This project is scheduled to start in May with an estimated completion before the start of the new season.

“Both areas will get a new fresh look and provide a very warm feeling for the men and for the golfers who go through the pro shop regularly.  We are excited with the plans and the enhancement this will add to the Club. The facilities have been designed to match the needs of the membership as well as the décor of the beautifully new designed downstairs lobby, Grand Café and lounge. 

“This is not just a freshening of the pro shop.  It is a completely new makeover with space for Buck Deibel, our director of golf, and Rick McGee, our golf professional.  It also provides the all-important check-in desk with the club’s outstanding staff behind it. Space for retail sales has been designed to be commensurate to what our members have been purchasing over the years.”

In addition to the final stage construction for the golf department, the Club will have a few additional upgrades. The new Grand Café will have its final construction phase with the addition of an outdoor seating area and the Club’s driveway and valet will be getting a facelift.

Concurrent to the end of the season is also the beginning of the full growing season for the golf course. While the new Celebration grass planted over a two-year period is taking hold nicely, tee boxes will continue to be groomed, and the Club may also undertake enlarging some of the tees to accommodate the amount of play.

Unlike most clubs in South Florida, the beauty of the Club at Boca Point’s programs is that you do not have to live in Boca Pointe to play there.  If you want to know more, please call 561-864-8539!

Starting at Lincoln Center, the walk took you through the Central Park Zoo, Times Square, and Macy’s Department Store to Chelsea, the Brooklyn Bridge and many more. The winner of the contest received a Complimentary Training Session on the Pilates Reformer.
