The Boca Raton, Fla., club’s recently completed renovations include a re-imagined clubhouse that is “an extension of each member’s home, something warm and inviting,” according to CEO Russell Carlson. The updates also include a new Aquatic Center featuring a temperature-controlled pool area with 75-foot dedicated lap lanes, a spa, and a 9,100-sq. ft. natural stone sun deck.
Bocaire Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla., recently completed major renovations totaling $10.5 million.
“We’re selling a lot of homes and getting a lot of new people and younger families with children,” said Board President Marvin Padover, noting that changing demographics spurred the changes. “Our goal was to bring the club into the future.”
A boutique-sized country club noted for its 300 acres of fairways, lakes and landscaped vistas, Bocaire now offers a clubhouse that is “an extension of each member’s home, something warm and inviting,” said Chief Executive Officer Russell Carlson.
Designed by Edward Cox Interiors of Miami, the new clubhouse interior sports new sconces and carpets, plus reflection pools at the main entrance, the club reports. The club now offers new menu selections all year long, ranging from basic home style cooking to gourmet fare, under the eye of Executive Chef Kevin Marcelle.
“All of our meats are prime quality and if members want something that is not on the menu, we’ll prepare it for them,” Marcelle said.
The new Aquatic Center features a temperature-controlled pool area with two 75-foot dedicated lap lanes and a tranquil spa, surrounded by a 9,100-sq. ft. natural stone sun deck with two shaded pavilions.
Bocaire also offers five Har-Tru tennis courts and a 4,300-sq. ft. Fitness Center and Spa, stocked with the latest weight training and cardio equipment and offering a variety of classes in zumba, yoga, aerobics, stretch and body sculpting.
Bocaire CC was included in C&RB‘s coverage of clubs that are investing in family-oriented renovations.
