Posted on: January 1, 2024 | Read Time: 6 minutes

Boca West has once again captured the global spotlight. Situated just minutes from Downtown Boca Raton, Florida, this private golf club community boasts a remarkable and ever-growing array of accolades. Their trophy case of honors includes a 13th ranking among the Top 100 Platinum Clubs of the World, a steadfast position as the Nation’s #1 Private Residential Country Club Lifestyle and mentioned on Forbes’ list of top Golf & Country Clubs honored with Platinum status worldwide. Moreover, given Zillow’s recognition of Palm Beach as the nation’s hottest housing market, this private golf community has emerged as a coveted destination for golf enthusiasts seeking the pinnacle of club living. But what makes this top-rated private golf lifestyle so special? Let’s take a closer look.

Four Private Golf Courses with a Championship Legacy

Arnold Palmer, Jim Fazio, and Pete Dye used their legendary talents to architecturally design four championship golf courses at Boca West. Each course is unique in design, with a variety of different landscapes for different playing styles. Strategically placed bunkers and rolling fairways wind their way through the natural Florida landscape, providing a welcoming experience for golfers of all skill levels. Add to that a four-acre short game area and a driving range with 50 tees and it comes as no surprise that Boca West is regarded as a private golf paradise.

The First Top Golf-Style Experience for a Private Golf Club

Boca West was also the first Club in North America to host a high-tech driving range experience. Mr. D’s 19th Hole and Drive Suites boasts In-Range radar sensor technology akin to Top Golf. This technology allows participants to track the flight of the ball from the bay where the ball was hit, and then relay the data back to the bay’s Internet-based device. Supported by a team of golf professionals, beginners and enthusiasts alike revel in the dynamic atmosphere. Boca West also remains at the forefront of golf technology, integrating K-Motion, BodiTrak, and Blast Motion technologies for training and performance tracking.
