The Club at Boca Pointe

The Club at Boca Pointe, formerly known as Boca Pointe Country Club, is a non-mandatory country club located within the gated Boca Pointe community in Boca Raton, Florida. The Club at Boca Pointe features an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course, 29 Har-Tru tennis courts, three restaurants, two lounges, men's and ladies' card rooms, a fully equipped 40,000-square-foot (3,700 m2) athletics center, a day spa and two Olympic-size pools. The Club also features a full calendar of social activities including lifelong learning programs taught by professors from local universities, offsite trips, onsite entertainment, book discussion groups and hobby clubs. It is a Club dedicated to relaxation, friendly games and competition.

The Club has 1,288 equity members. While most members hold equity memberships in the Club, non-equity memberships are also offered to cater to members' individual lifestyles if they do not live in South Florida full-time. In 2009, Boca Pointe Country Club changed its name to The Club at Boca Pointe to reflect a change in potential members who did not want to belong to a traditional country club. To evolve into a club for the Baby Boomer generation, new programs and memberships were developed to specifically attract retiring Baby Boomers who crave an active lifestyle with an emphasis on wellness, socialization and lifelong learning.

The Club at Boca Pointe is a separate entity from the Boca Pointe Community Association, with its own Board of Governors, management and employees. Although separate organizations, the management and staff of both work closely together.
