Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club is one of the most exclusive golf clubs in Boca Raton. It’s a private club, and anyone wishing to apply for membership must be invited to do so. This country club has maintained a tradition of elegance for over a half-century. Part of its mission statement is that it endeavors to provide fun for the entire family. Royal Palm features a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. The elegant clubhouse offers a high-end level of services to all members and their guests. Members are greeted by name, and the conscientious staff remembers their individual preferences. Both golf and social memberships are available with a capital contribution required at both levels of membership. A junior membership is also available. Junior members are responsible for only half the typical capital requirement.
In addition to golf, the club offers a 7,000-square-foot fitness center. The equipment is first rate and several fitness classes like Pilates and yoga are also available. Members of the fitness staff are on duty seven days a week and members have twenty-four hours a day access to the facility. For those who require a regular “pamper time,” there are massage therapists, skin care therapists, and steam rooms available.
Six tennis courts are located next to the fitness center. There are men and women’s leagues and tennis clinics for kids after school and on the weekends. Tennis aficionados can also reserve court time by calling a member of the tennis staff. For those traditionalists who like something a little different, here’s also a croquet pavilion with two championship greenswards. That perennial favorite, duplicate bridge, is available every Tuesday. The club also sponsors tournaments and lessons.
As if all of these facilities weren’t enough, the club also has its own marina on the bay. There’s a clubhouse for members with a nautical flair. There’s also a pool. Access to the ocean is only minutes away. Many members dock their yachts at this marina. There are hookups for phones, water and electricity. For the yacht owners’ convenience, there’s a full time dock master and concierge services available seven days per week. The yacht club regularly sponsors regattas, a fishing derby and organized excursions. Members have reciprocal privileges at thirty-five other yacht clubs throughout Florida.
Several dining options are available at both the golf club and the yacht club. In addition, numerous family oriented activities are offered, like parties, carnivals and “dive-in” movies. The facilities, amenities and activities it offers are some of the best in Florida.
