Golf as it was meant to be played

Our 18-hole Jim Fazio designed championship golf course embodies the purity of the world’s greatest game. With no tee times, the golf course creates opportunities for the novice to have a wonderful experience, while also creating a demanding challenge for those seeking to play from the longest set of tees.  A masterpiece of meticulously manicured fairways and lush tropical landscape, the course blends seamlessly with the natural environment preserving native trees and wildlife.  

Touted as “Gary Player’s first American home,” the most successful international golfer of all time lived and raised his children within our gates.  Boca Grove was the original site of the Quadel Senior Classic, a tournament on the Champions’ Tour won twice by Arnold Palmer and once by Gary Player before moving to a course that could accommodate the growing number of spectators.  We continue to have an excellent relationship with Mr. Player, who continues to be very active in golf, health and fitness.  On property you will see his influence in our beehives as Mr. Player takes his coffee with honey.  You will see we value and seek to emulate his strong belief in nutrition and fitness as a lifestyle as we offer advice and programs designed to strengthen your body and your game, be it golf or tennis.

Enjoy no tee times and pure golf 

At Boca Grove, you can enjoy the uncompromised beauty of the course with no tee times. Boca Grove becomes the place to enrich your passion for the game.  While enjoying the camaraderie of fellow members, the companionship of family, or for a private playing lesson with one of our Golf Professionals, you can rest assured you will be able to tee it up when you want. Aligned with our vision to inspire and enable members to enjoy every day of their lives, Boca Grove offers a golf experience that is second to none.
