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!
One 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.
The 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?
