As an epicenter for championship golf, world-class dining, and lively entertainment scenes, Boca Raton, Florida, has consistently attracted travelers from around the globe. This city on Florida’s east coast is renowned for its vibrant year-round lifestyle, but some individuals prefer to make the region their seasonal home to escape the northern winter chill. Fortunately for these “snowbirds,” Boca Raton boasts convenient access to a private airport as well as three international airports. Let’s explore how this exceptional location in Boca Raton provides Boca West Members with a convenient travel gateway and access to a multitude of exciting opportunities.

Private Florida Travel

Boca Raton Airport

The Boca Raton Airport (BCT), just five miles from Boca West, stands as a beacon of convenience for private air travel. Two full-service Fixed Base Operators (FBO) are located at the airport, offering a range of amenities to facilitate charter, business, and private jet travel. The Boca Raton Airport does not offer commercial flights, allowing flyers to enjoy the privacy and security of a smaller airport. Additionally, the on-site hotel and a variety of restaurants further enhance travelers’ comfort and convenience. The airport’s strategic location offers quick access to both South Florida’s beaches and bustling business centers, making it the ideal gateway for those seeking a perfect balance between leisure and work.

International Travel in West Palm Beach Airport

West Palm Beach International

Located just a short 25-mile drive north of Boca West, Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) is a traveler’s paradise. Being named the 7th best airport in the world, PBI continues to be a fan favorite for frequent flyers. Thirteen commercial airlines provide a range of direct flights to numerous domestic and international destinations, including major cities like New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Columbus, Baltimore, Toronto, and Montreal. For Boca West residents, this means easy access to key business hubs, cultural centers, and vacation hotspots. One of PBI’s biggest advantages is its efficiency. With shorter lines and quicker boarding times compared to larger airports, both business and leisure travelers can enjoy a stress-free experience.

South Florida’s International Airports

Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL), only 30 miles south of Boca West, offers an array of flight routes connecting travelers to destinations near and far. With four terminals and a variety of airlines to choose from, FLL is ranked 21st in the United States and serves more than 30 million passengers annually.

Boca Raton Golf Course - Boca West

World-Class Championship Golf in Boca Raton, Florida

Not only in Boca Raton, but throughout the country, Boca West Country Club is recognized as the best in class for championship golf and exceptional private club living. Boca West’s four championship golf courses have had the influence of great golf legends including Arnold Palmer, Jim Fazio, and Pete Dye. Strategically placed bunkers and rolling fairways that wind their way through the natural Florida landscape provide golfers of all skill levels with a fast and fun yet challenging golf experience. Boca West was also the first Club in North America to host a high-tech golf driving range. Mr. D’s 19th Hole and Drive Suites feature In-Range radar sensor technology, allowing Members to track the flight of the ball from the bay the ball was hit, and then relay the data back to the bay’s internet-based device. Add to that a four-acre short game area and driving range with 50 tees and comes as no surprise that Boca West is regarded as a golfing paradise.
