Gleneagles Country Club is located in Delray Beach, between Palm Beach and Boca Raton. It is perfectly positioned to take advantage of all the amenities that both cities have to offer. Gleneagles is situated on 400 lush acres, and there are lots of lakes and green belts to add to the visual appeal of the community. There are 1082 residences in the community: 220 single family fairway homes and 826 garden apartments. All the buildings have a Mediterranean design, which adds to the overall ambiance of the neighborhoods. Gleneagles is a gated community, which provides extra security for its residents. Security services are provided twenty-four hours a day.
The eighteen-hole Karl Litten Golf Course and its clubhouse are the centerpieces of the community. The clubhouse is 65,000 square feet and has an Olympic sized swimming pool attached. Every need of the golfer is serviced: there’s a pro shop, full time staff, classes, private lessons and league play. The freestanding fitness center looks like the equipment room on the “Biggest Loser.” It’s full of top rated equipment. There’s a full time staff and personal training is available. Classes like aerobics and yoga are offered. There are also “aquacise” classes in the Olympic size pool.
Tennis courts are also available to members and a full time tennis staff is “ready and willing” to serve patrons. Tournaments and league play are organized for the enjoyment of the players. In addition to all of these facilities in the main club area, there are also seven satellite clubhouses, each with its own pool, spa and fitness classes.
Great food can always be found at Gleneagles. The Legends Dining Room in the main clubhouse over looks the golf course. Its kitchen creates gourmet meals for those who desire a fine dining experience. Adjoining the Legends Dining Room is the Waterfall Room. It can be reserved for private parties and functions. Out by the pool is the Grille Room. It offers light lunches and casual evening dining. The Legend’s Lounge is where friends meet to chat or have drinks with others. Entertainment is offered and usually focuses on singers, comedians and musicians.
The community regularly sponsors a wide variety of activities and events. There are holiday celebrations, lectures and theme parties, concerts and dinner shows. Various games are offered including Bridge groups. The “On the Road” program is always well attended. Members are invited to join groups that visit local casinos, comedy clubs, museums, and other places of interest in South Florida. As the younger generation would say, “Gleneagles rules!”
