“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.

  • Annual Golf Membership (12 Month membership)

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)

The Sports & Fitness and Sports & Fitness with Golf memberships are perfect for residents and non-residents of Boca Pointe who are mainly interested in sports and fitness activities with some dining privileges.  It entitles the member (single or couple) to use the tennis facilities, Sports & Fitness Complex (including the Club pool and Freshe Pointe Café), and golf course with golf access at specific times.

Additionally, this membership grants access to the main clubhouse’s “To-Go” menu and designated days for dinner (in the main clubhouse), which include unlimited weekend dining privileges (Saturday and Sunday) and dinner privileges on Tuesday and Thursday in the main clubhouse.  Happy Hour is available with golf or dining reservations on those designated days.

  • Passport Membership (30 Day membership)

This is popular for residents and non-residents of Boca Pointe who are not in the Boca Raton area often or desire to use a club on a limited basis. 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.

For this membership, tennis is available at the 7:30 a.m. court time and after 11:30 a.m. on a complimentary basis, and golf is available on a pay and play basis before 8 a.m. and after 12:15 p.m. with a two day advance sign up privilege. Access to departments is subject to availability.

The Passport membership may be purchased once every six months for a maximum of two passport memberships within 365 days.

  • Annual Tennis Membership (12 Month membership)

This is popular for residents and non-residents of Boca Pointe who are avid tennis players.  Tennis is available in the morning and afternoon on a complimentary basis.

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!

ANNUAL GOLF MEMBERSHIPS BECOMING A HOT ITEM AT THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE

BOCA POINTE 220 golf double men sandtrapA golfer’s haven! That is what the Club at Boca Pointe is being called with its array of golf memberships.

The Club at Boca Pointe is a full service, non-mandatory equity country club in South Florida that uniquely offers golf only memberships for residents and non-residents of its community. With its recently renovated 18-hole championship golf course, the Club is attracting many new members.

“For avid golfers whose pure interest is golf, the Club offers a non-equity Annual Golf membership. This program is perfect for anyone who enjoys playing at a premier private country club, without having the typical financial equity expense required by other private clubs in the area,” says Helen Karpel, general manager.

“Our Annual Golf membership allows members to play golf in the morning and afternoons on an unlimited basis. The membership includes lunch, brunch and lounge privileges, with Happy Hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily, except Mondays. The membership also includes dining privileges on Thursday nights most often in the Main Dining Room. In addition to social golf, Annual Golf Members can join the men’s and ladies’ leagues, participate in weekly tournaments, Sunday mixers, and the opening and closing dinner dances,” she added.

“We just further enhanced the Annual Golf membership to include residents in the Boca Pointe community. Previously, it was only available to those who live outside the Boca Pointe gates.

“We recognize that the Boca Pointe population is changing. There are many more working people in the community who might not have time to enjoy the full benefits of the country club but desire the golf experience as they overlook the beautiful 18-hole championship golf course,” Karpel added.

The Club at Boca Pointe offers many membership opportunities for golfers, ranging from Equity memberships to several Non-Equity memberships, including Annual Golf as well as the ever popular and growing Premier membership.

The Premier membership provides the opportunity for members to choose what level of club participation they are interested in and for how many months. The Premier membership offers eight categories, all of which include social privileges and then golf and tennis may be chosen as add-ons.

The Premier Membership is perfect for snowbirds who might be spending anywhere from three to 12 months in South Florida. For the first year, a member may purchase as few as three months, and then from second year and thereafter, members may purchase as few as four months. For golf members who join for fewer months, they find it surprisingly easy to integrate into the membership with introductions by the staff and participation in league play.

As a testimony of member enjoyment, Premier members who purchase less months upfront very often extend their membership by additional months before leaving for the north. For Premier members who decide to permanently move to Florida, they often become year-round members and get to fully enjoy the country club life at Boca Pointe every day of the year!

Today is an excellent day to call 561-864-8539 to learn more about the many golf options available to you at the Club at Boca Pointe!
