The Boca Raton, Fla. club recently opened a $50 million Golf & Activities Center and a $45 million Aquatics & Fitness Center is under construction. “We are thrilled to work with Fry/Straka Golf Course Design in order to keep up with the evolving game of golf and to meet the demands of our members, today and long into the future,” says Matthew Linderman, CCM, President, COO and General Manager.
Boca West Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla. has commissioned Fry/Straka Global Golf Course Design to assist with a new master plan for course improvements. Boca West boasts four distinct 18-hole golf courses by architects Pete Dye, Arnold Palmer and Jim Fazio.
In order to keep up with the evolving game of golf and to meet the demands of its members, the club recently began the process of seeking a golf course architecture firm to assist with a new master plan for course improvements. After interviewing several individuals and firms, the club chose Fry/Straka to lead its club through the renovation process to fully redevelop all four courses over the next six years.
Some of the firm’s award winning and highly rated course designs include Erin Hills in Wisconsin; Calusa Pines in Florida; Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Rhode Island; Devils Pulpit and Paintbrush in Ontario; and Hamilton Farm Golf Club in New Jersey. Fry/Straka is also currently engaged with Union League National Golf Club in New Jersey, which has garnered worldwide notoriety.
“We are thrilled to work with Fry/Straka Golf Course Design in order to keep up with the evolving game of golf and to meet the demands of our members, today and long into the future. Boca West continues to lead the way offering the most advanced amenities,” said Matthew Linderman, CCM, President, COO and General Manager of Boca West Country Club. “Our work with Fry/Straka follows the recent opening of a $50 million Golf & Activities Center and our under-construction $45 million new Aquatics & Fitness Center. We are extremely excited about our new partnership with Dana and Jason which will aid us in elevating our already highly recognized golf facilities as a premier golfer’s paradise.”

“Dana and I are honored to be selected by Boca West to lead the club through the upcoming golf course renovation process,” said Jason Straka, partner of Fry/Straka and current President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. “Boca West is highly regarded and known as one of the top residential country clubs in all of America and we look forward to renovating and updating the golf courses to compliment the Club’s world-class facilities.”
