Boca West Country Club to Open New $50 Million Golf and Activities Center

The 153,000 square foot clubhouse epitomizes the luxury lifestyle

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - March 13, 2017) - Boca West Country Club, a premier residential golf destination with greens carved by top architects and World Golf Hall of Famers, is unveiling its new $50 million Golf and Activities Center on Tuesday, March 14. The 153,000 square foot clubhouse will define a new era of luxury living for its members, who already enjoy Boca West's unparalleled amenities and services.

The Clubhouse was built by Hedrick Brothers Construction, Inc., and designed by Architectural Design and Planning Group with interiors by Image Design. The top level of the new building features a stunning lobby with two luxurious rotundas. One rotunda leads you to the two new restaurants, Grand Central, a retro-themed deli, sports bar and grill and Prime Cut, a dramatic signature restaurant featuring endless views and a spectacular 1,800 bottle wine cellar. The second rotunda starts off with the Club's very unique Boutique, boasting the look of an upscale department store or a shop you might see on Worth Avenue then leads you to the very "clubby" Library and an activities ballroom that will seat 500. From here you will enter either the ladies or men's locker rooms both of which feature state-of-the-art stretching equipment and golf simulators. On the lower level you will find a modern shopping experience at the club's Golf Shoppe as well as an under-roof golf cart staging area.

Boca West Country Club is a popular venue for South Florida charity galas and luncheons as well as weddings and special events. The exciting new clubhouse will expand the Club's capability to host such weddings and special events.

"Our members are thrilled to add this spectacular new clubhouse to the one-of-a-kind amenities offered at Boca West," said Jay DiPietro, CCM (Certified Club Manager), President and COO, Boca West Country Club. "We built this $50 million clubhouse without a member assessment, due to strong stewardship of membership dollars. I believe we have accomplished our dream of creating an extraordinary new facility that is aligned with our notable stature as being the #1 Private Residential Country Club in America."

"We feel we have more than just a new clubhouse, it's a long-term investment in the iconic lifestyle we personify at Boca West," said Matthew Linderman, CCM, the newly appointed general manager who oversaw much of the construction as the club's assistant general manager.

"We wanted our members to feel that the Club is an extension of their home. We strived for a feeling of comfort and ease, certainly impressive, but in an understated elegance," said Bob Locke, board chairman.
