The reconfigured dining room of the Boca Raton, Fla. property has been opened up to accommodate seating for up to 375 guests, including a dance floor and stage. The clubhouse has also been reconfigured to maximize the views of the recently renovated golf course, as well as lakes on the property and the swimming pool, while also enhancing the flow into an expansive new covered patio.
Boca Lago Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla., is nearing completion of extensive clubhouse improvements, to follow its recent significant golf course renovation project.
The $3.6-million renovation of the clubhouse will be completed early next year. The revitalized clubhouse will feature upgraded dining areas and pool complex, as well as all-new outdoor dining and gathering spaces.
Boca Lago features 27 holes of golf originally designed by Bruce Devlin and Robert von Hagge. The golf course currently has 18 holes open for play, following a renovation under the direction of golf course architect Jan Bel Jan and golf course superintendent George Redshaw, GCSAA (https://clubandresortbusiness.com/boca-lago-cc-nears-completion-of-total-course-renovation/). The remaining nine are scheduled to open in January.
The clubhouse improvements are designed to strengthen Boca Lago’s reputation as one of the area’s premier venues for private events, weddings, corporate/charity golf tournaments, and community fund-raising events, along with providing new amenities and features for members and their guests.
The reconfigured dining room has been opened up to accommodate seating for up to 375 guests, including a dance floor and stage. Floor-to-ceiling windows present elevated views of the golf course and the lake on the east side of the 250-acre property.
A new arrival experience and entrance will greet members and guests, enhanced by lush landscaping, a refreshed color palette, and a light, airy lobby. Seating areas and reading nooks have also been added, while the Grille Room, Living Room, and Lounge are being updated with new carpeting, furnishings, and vibrant color palette.
The floorplan of the clubhouse has been reconfigured to maximize the views of the golf course, lakes, and swimming pool, while enhancing the flow into an expansive new covered patio. The outdoor Tiki Bar, adjacent to the pool, will feature a grill for casual dining, as well as golfers making the turn.
The new outdoor area—totally covered as it wraps around the clubhouse from the pool to the main dining room—will offer seating areas, casual dining options, plus additional space for pre-function and cocktail parties.
“The covered area around the pool undoubtedly will become a popular gathering spot and provides a tremendous ambiance for anyone planning a special event,” said Steven Danza, the club’s new owner.
“The enhancement of the entire property diversifies areas for current and new members and their guests to enjoy the club,” Danza added. “The renovations are integral to our vision of promoting a healthy lifestyle, including walking privileges for golfers, enhanced fitness programs, and contemporary menu choices. This positions the club favorably to a wide demographic age range for years to come.”
Future phases of the master plan for Boca Lago, which recently selected ClubCorp’s new ClubLife Management division to oversee club operations (https://clubandresortbusiness.com/boca-lago-cc-selects-clublife-management/), call for a ceremony gazebo, game room, and locker room enhancements.
