  • The Formula for A Successful Country Club
    • It’s no secret that St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, Florida, is one of the best country clubs in the world. BoardRoom Magazine knows it, as they’ve designated St. Andrews Country Club as a Distinguished Club of the World for eight years in a row. World Spa Awards knows it – they’ve just nominated The Spa & Salon at St. Andrews Country Club for North America’s Best Day Spa 2019. The members of the Club are especially aware of St. Andrews Country Club’s reputation for providing an upscale lifestyle, as they find that the Club’s offerings in dining, golf, tennis, cards, and luxury are unparalleled. But what is it about the Club that has caught the eye of award committees across the world, has members returning repeatedly to enjoy the experiences that the Club can offer? Ron Gallatin, the President of the Club, had one idea. “Our formula for success is quite simple: Members who want to enjoy themselves + Facilities that make it possible + Staff that makes it happen. Members who wake up every morning, look outside and thank G-d for letting them be here.”  

      Facilities That Make It Possible  
      While most clubs offer golf and tennis-related amenities, the ones at St. Andrews Country Club are known to have excelled all others in quality. Golfers at the Club have their choice of two courses, designed by Arnold Palmer and Tommy Fazio II, to test their skills on. Improvement doesn’t end when you step off of the course - the on-site Golf Performance Center is fully equipped with a digital coaching system, private locker rooms, and a club fitting area. Tennis players are just as well off, with 14 clay tennis courts, private and group lessons, and consistent rotation of exhibitions. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. St. Andrews boasts an extensive 10,500 square foot Fitness Center offering every kind of class you can think of. There’s also a recently constructed Spa & Salon on property and five of the best dining venues in Boca Raton.  

      Staff That Makes It Happen  
      Part of the reason that the Spa & Salon gains so much attention because of its amazing staff. Dawn MacLellan, Director of the Spa & Salon, is currently nominated for an award with the Women in Wellness Awards. Having a staff at this level is no accident – it all begins with top level recruitment, training and a willingness to provide excellent service to every single member every time. In the Golf Locker Rooms club and shoe cleaning service is offered on-site, and tires for bikes, cars, and golf carts can be filled with air at the Golf Bag Drop. All of which are complimentary.  The Club itself manages a list of local services for dry cleaning, floral arrangements, taxis and limos, and business services as to connect members to trusted professionals. Staff can also perform an on-site car wash and alert members that their valet is ready via text, making car ownership and going out simpler than ever before. Reservations can be placed for dinners, personal fitness training, and tennis court use, and meals from any one of the Club’s restaurants can be ordered to-go, with substitutions happily made on request. Quality products, exemplary service, and a simple lifestyle – that’s what makes the staff at St. Andrews Country Club a cut above the rest.    

      Members Who Want To Enjoy Themselves  
      The most important parts of a Club are the members. After all, these are the people who are using the amenities and services, who are attending the clinics, games, and programs, who dine at the restaurants, and who make themselves prominent denizens of the Club. These members aren’t interested in slowing down – they want to make the most out of every day. Thus, they’ll seize every opportunity that they can get from the Club, which is how they move it forward.  

      There are those who believe that life should be spent outside, with friends, or pursuing the next big experience. There are those who believe that time is best spent working on reaching a goal, improving a swing or a serve, or rejuvenating their spirits. There are those who search for the best way to enjoy themselves. Those are the people who are members of St. Andrews Country Club. When they drive in the gates of this private community, they know that they’ll be experiencing the finest dining, amenities, and living offered in South Florida, if not in the entire country.

      Sons & Daughters Farm and Winery    


      Out in Lake Worth is a vineyard that truly embodies Florida’s spirit. Made out of the ruins of a commercial nursery after a series of storms, the staff at this vineyard recognized the land’s ability to make itself fertile again by gaining nutrients from the land and growing the fruits that were naturally inclined to grow in it. Growing produce that grows exponentially in Florida’s climate, such as hibiscus, pumpkin, and citrus, leads to bold flavored wines with an unmistakable flavor profile. The staff here is more than excited to show off their process, and is constantly inviting guests over to enjoy live music by local artists and some of their wines and kombuchas over an open campfire. Food trucks have also been known to make an appearance on occasion, as well.  

      St. Andrews Country Club  

      Exclusively for the members of this well-established country club, the culinary team at St. Andrews works tirelessly to pair wines with a variety of foods ranging from cheeses to chocolates in order to draw out the full flavor profiles of the vinos. Whether part of a standalone series or as a part of the Epicurious series of events, guests can expect to be treated to a whole array of wines from across the globe, ranging from reds made in Italy to whites from California. Even if there isn’t a tasting event going on, members can enjoy the extensive list of wines featured at the Club’s onsite restaurants.

  • These Boca Raton Artists Are Revolutionizing The Art World
    • For art fans, there’s no other place like Boca Raton, Florida. This Treasure Coast city has inspired creative types of all kinds, ranging from sculpture artists to chefs to actors. It’s why the place is bustling with galleries and art fans. Make sure to check out these artists when you get a chance.  

      Addison Mizner  

      One couldn’t discuss Boca Raton’s art scene without mentioning Addison Mizner and his influential effect on the area’s architecture. Having sent himself to Florida to take care of his ailing health in 1918, he recognized that the state’s current architecture was more suited to snow flurries and sleet than it was for balmy, tropical days. His resulting architectural design, later recognized as Mediterranean Revival, combined favored details of Spanish and Tuscan influences, such as coral and sienna colored buildings and flourishes on top of columns and at the edges of roofs, along with wide open spaces and high roofs that allow for a home to naturally cool itself by letting air circulate throughout. You’ll find the buildings that he designed at the Boca Raton History Museum and the Boca Raton Resort & Club.  

      Lloyd Fury  

      A member of the Boca Raton Museum Artist’s Guild, his work has been recognized in gallery showings and judging competitions. In 2017, he took an Honorable Mention award for ‘Demigod’s Demure,’ a mixed media sculpture piece.  

      Allison Lefcourt  

      Lefcourt is the very example of a young prodigy, having dropped out of college when her art career took off in her 20’s. As a pop artist, she has made portraits of Disney characters, members of the band The Doors, and Mikhail Baryshnikov. Of note is her use of colors and placement in her imagery – monochromatic color schemes make up the foreground, while brighter, wilder colors are used in the background. This allows the portrait to stand out while asking the viewer what makes us drawn to these images.  

      Wentworth Gallery
       

      This is the name that is known across the country, and for good reason. Wentworth Gallery has been in the art business for years, working to help buyers locate authentic pieces of work by artists such as Dali and Gevorg. They show at some of the most exclusive art fairs across the world (February even brought them to the court of the King of Prussia), which helps establish them as many buyers’ first resource in procuring a specialty piece.  

      Sponder Gallery  

      If any one local gallery has established a reputation for themselves based on quality and service, it’s Sponder Gallery. Specializing in modern and contemporary works, this gallery has attracted the likes of artists such as Anne Lilly and Metis Atash to its exhibition spaces. Their Fine Art Dealers Association membership represents their dedication and ability to authenticate and appraise works, while also connecting them to an encyclopedic database of those who do such as well. Sponder Gallery further establishes their presence in the art world at fairs such as Art Wynwood and Art New York, along with collaborating with local businesses by inserting some of their pieces into office spaces, residential areas, and other corporate establishments. St. Andrews Country Club has had the honor of displaying art from the Sponder Gallery as well.  

      Far more than a luxury destination, St. Andrews Country Club is a cultural experience; full of ways to enjoy what life has to offer. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy playing across the golf course, or getting training from a tennis professional on one of the multiple Har-Tru courts that St. Andrews owns.

  • What Makes Golfing Here So Much Better?
    • What Makes Golfing Here So Much Better?    

      Many clubs claim that they have a great golfing program, the latest technology, or a special feature offered only by them. But why do members prefer the golfing experience at St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton? It’s not just the Club’s private status that lets players avoid tee times almost entirely, or the courses designed by famed course designers, though those do help. Both pros and beginner players have utilized the newest technology provided by St. Andrews Country Club’s Golf Performance Center to assist its players, and worked to provide a quality playing experience for its members, all without gimmicks or tricks. Unlike most clubs, St. Andrews’ golf programs are based on its illustrious past and the technology of the future, creating a perfect balance that allows players to succeed.

      Courses

      There’s no such better example of St. Andrews’ balance between the past and the future than their golf courses. The two courses, the Palmer and the Fazio II, are designed by Arnold Palmer and Tom Fazio II , both of them golf legends in their own rights. The courses display the mark of each designer, and reveal their years of experience crafting some of the best golf courses in the world. The Palmer asks for shorter drives, but has plenty of bunkers to keep players cautious about landing their ball. The Fazio has a less detailed fairway, but wants players to estimate how hard they have to swing to make the perfect drive. Many clubs can say that they have courses designed by legends such as these, but only St. Andrews can claim that their courses draw in the biggest names in golf. Since their inception in 1983, the courses at St. Andrews have hosted professional players such as, Phil Mickelson, Ken Duke, and Arnold Palmer. LGPA player Morgan Pressel claims these courses as her home courses, as well.

      Serving to combine both St. Andrews’ quality service and expert advice from professionals and their elite, detailed technology, one can’t do better than the Golf Performance Center. It’s designed to use both high-end technology and traditional methods such as classes and practice areas to improve their players’ games. This allows players to personalize their training experience to get the best results. Programs such as the V1 Digital Coaching System and the Flightscope Launch Monitor allow players to practice their swings, while delicate technology pinpoints their errors and helps players refine them. Golf professional staff host clinics and tutoring sessions, help players get fitted for a club at the Callaway Golf Fitting Area, and members can benefit from the outdoor driving range, the pro shop, and the chipping and putting greens.

      Any club can say that they have some great golf, but St. Andrews offers players something that can’t be replicated: a tradition. From the many players that have graced its greens to the events and programs that it hosts for its members, St. Andrews Country Club has provided a level of quality that brings members back to experience it over and over again.

      St. Andrews Country Club offers a vibrant, top-quality lifestyle and has done so for more than 30 years. Its distinctions include a “Distinguished Club of the World” and a “Top Ten Healthiest Clubs in America,” and its world-class amenities make life a permanent vacation.

  • 3 Outdoor Walking Trails Near Boca Raton
    •     3 Outdoor Walking Trails Near Boca Raton 

      The weather in South Florida is perfect this time of year!

      What better way to enjoy it than on a morning hike close by?   Boca Raton is a city of dualities. New techniques meet old traditions. And a modern city lives alongside the untamed beauty of the wilds. Drive anywhere along East Boca, and you’ll find patches of these wild areas maintained by lovers of nature and protected from being built over. Take the time to step through these wild areas, and enjoy their unrefined gorgeous nature.    

      Blazing Star Nature Reserve  

      When you see Blazing Star Nature Reserve right next to Sugar Sand Park where it’s located, the smaller park may seem unassuming. Once you make your way around the mile-long trail loop, you’ll find that this area is a treasure trove of wildlife. The information booth up front tells you that the park is part scrubland, part dune, and all too important to Boca Raton’s ecosystem. Among the animals and plants that live here are gopher tortoises, eagles, and the blazing star flower that this park gets its name from.  

      Yamato Scrub Natural Area  

      Made from local conservationists’ efforts to preserve this rare piece of land, the Yamato Scrub Natural Area features both delicate scrub and beneficial pine flatwoods. Entering the park reveals how the animals and plants here live in a symbiotic relationship. For example, the Dade Pine houses the Scrub Jays that eat wood damaging bugs, rabbits eat invasive plants and fertilize the landscape, and zebra longwing butterflies pollinate the flowers that they feed from.  

      St. Andrews Exercise Trail  

      St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton is known for providing excellent service and experiences for its members, and that includes exercise options, as well. One of the many ways that residents of the Club can get their cardio in is through the St. Andrews Exercise Trail that winds throughout the club. The mile loop provides enough of a challenge for both beginners and experts to exercise. Those who are looking to shake up their routine will find stretching stations along the way, each one offering challenges to perform.

  • What Do All the Best Restaurants in Boca Have in Common?
    • Any cuisine, any night. It’s all available at this one address.     

      Boca Raton stands as one of Florida’s top cities for gastronomes. Its proximity to the ocean and intricate history with arts and culture draws in chefs and bakers of all kinds from all over. On any given day, you can find food of all kinds, including German sausages, Korean barbecue, and even American classics with a contemporary twist. However, the four indisputably best restaurants in Boca Raton have one thing in common: they’re all at St. Andrews Country Club.

      As one of the premiere country clubs in Boca Raton, these member only specialty restaurants have two secrets to their success. There’s the receptive and prompt staff that work to fulfill every request, and the fresh ingredients that the chefs have access to. When you’re working with ingredients that come from the on-site herb garden, it can’t get any fresher than that!

      Whether you’re looking for a casual lunch with classic bites, or for an upscale dining event, find a dining experience unlike any other when you step past the gates of St. Andrews Country Club.    

      The View  

      Friday and Saturday nights, A La Carte Dinner evenings come with an additional menu. The View specializes in providing unique and hard to find offerings for diners’ delights. Often enjoyed are the Jumbo Ecuadorian Shrimp and the The View Cobb, made especially for St. Andrews Country Club. Served with a St. Andrews Stormy, it’s a classic meal that will be hard to forget.  

      The Turn  

      Located right by the Golf Performance Improvement Center, this is where players come to refuel for their next round. The selections for the menu here are designed to be quick, fulfilling, and able to power you through your next nine holes. Plates such as the Mediterranean Kale and Quinoa Salad and the Roast Beef Wrap are made to do just that.    

      Café Blue  

      Every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 to 3:00, swimmers coming from the Aquatic Center who need something to cool off pay a visit to Café Blue. Its contemporary interior design merges well with the light bites, drinks, and modern spins on tried and true dishes that are offered here. Grab a few friends after a day spent swimming and sunning to grab a round of Pina Coladas for the table, with a bowl of Chips and Salsa to go with them.  

      The Gallery    

      The menu here consists of steaks grilled to a juicy tenderness, salads made with fresh greens, and other American style classics. Dishes such as the Avocado Greek Salad and the Grilled Filet Mignon serve as some of the more popular options at the restaurant. With The Gallery established as the Club’s event location, changes may be made to the menu for the occasional event, such as a holiday party with turkey or a Memorial Day barbecue.    

      Lakeside

      Indoors or out, one of the best things at Lakeside is always the view – over a glistening lake, lighted fountain, and a finishing hole. Enjoy favorites like pasta, pizza, seafood, and salads in this fun, casual setting. The children’s menu makes this restaurant inviting to families, while a separate bar area features a large, flat-screen TV for viewing favorite sporting events. For dinner or drinks, Lakeside is a popular spot to dine or hang out with friends and enjoy the view.

      Tanzy  
      High-end Italian dishes in a contemporary setting. While this place has a menu for every hour of the day, we can’t resist the Parma Tasting Plate and the Spinach Ricotta Gnudi on the dinner menu. It’s hard to resist having it with a Mango-Habañero cocktail.

      M&M Thai Café 
      One of the best place to get Thai food, this is one restaurant where you should stop by. There’s nothing like hot Tom Kha soup with sharp lime and cilantro flavors on a chilly day! Spice fans will enjoy the one-to-three chili rating on certain dishes-have them try the green curry for a great play of spices and fresh flavors.    

      Six Tables 
      Affectionately known as ‘STaR’ (for ‘Six Tables a Restaurant’), this is where Boca’s gourmands go to have a high-end dinner that’s still tongue-in-cheek. The Pistachio and Herbs Encrusted Rack of Lamb is standout, and the Roast Red Pepper-Tomato Puree is fresh and bright. A prix-fixe menu lets you taste some of the kitchen’s best plates.  

      Abe& Louie’s Boca Raton 
      If you’re looking for the classic all-American steakhouse experience, Abe & Louie’s won’t disappoint. A sister location to the original in Boston, established in 1965, this gem is known for superb steak and unparalleled flavor combinations.

  • Top 6 Places to Appreciate Art Near Boca Raton, Florida
    • Calling all art lovers. Have you checked out the top galleries and museums near Boca?


      Boca Raton is enjoying an art renaissance. While it has historically served as a home for many creative types, the area has recently received artists and auteurs determined to challenge the modern concepts of art. The result is works that push viewers to engage with the piece and the artist, classes that expand our understanding of an artist and their process, and programs that help refine new talent. To understand why Boca Raton is the place to be for art appreciation, let us guide you through some of the best museums and galleries nearby.

      Sponder Gallery
      Best For: Modern and postwar works with an edge     

      Part of Sponder Gallery’s success is their contemporary approach to the intersection between art and business. Their relationships with St. Andrews Country Club along with the Boca Raton Resort & Yacht Club has helped put their artists and their works on display throughout the respective clubs, and into the shopping bags of many of the club’s patrons. Furthermore, Sponder Gallery works to maintain their credibility in eyes of both the art world and the public, through their Fine Art Dealers Association Membership status and through their constant interaction with the public. Their FADA Membership ensures that they offer a high level of integrity in selling their products, that they research them thoroughly, and that they offer a wide range of products. The pieces that they feature push the boundaries of art, utilize features from other disciplines, and create striking image in the mind’s eye. One of their prime examples is Kysa Johns works, which utilize the paths that atoms make as they travel, the decay trajectory of subatomic particles, and other elements from science.    


      Vertu Fine Art
      Best For: Pop art that catches your eye  

      Gallery owner Gary Santoro first became aware of pop art when he watched Keith Haring’s works evolve from subway graffiti to a pop culture phenomenon. Understanding pop art’s solid establishment in pop culture’s landscape, Santoro worked to create a gallery dedicated to not just the display and selling of such pieces, but also to the education of pop culture and its role in the art world.  Aside from their work in the gallery, they also tour the art show circuit. From Market Art + Design 2018 to Art on Paper at Manhattan’s Pier 36, the staff at Vertu are constantly working to display their current works, purchase new ones, and help buyers locate the perfect piece.    


      Rosenbaum Contemporary
      Best For: Postwar and Contemporary Pieces  

      In an effort to honor its architectural roots, many of the area’s buildings are designed and decorated in Mediterranean and coastal styles. The popularity of these art movements have dominated the landscape, leaving little room for modern and contemporary art and design to assert itself. Marvin and Howard Rosenbaum’s love for modern art worked to bring modern and postwar art to the shores of South Florida, and we’re all the better for it. Their tireless efforts in visiting showings, auctions, and museums for some of the best examples in this style pays off with an extensive list of featured artists and gallery showings that are second to none. The gallery’s recent exhibition and reception for “Dozen”, which displayed works from the Thomas Hartman Master Class of the Academy of Fine Arts, was one of the most discussed events in the recent history of the art world. Outside of showings and displays, the Rosenbaum Contemporary has established itself as a resource for art collectors and historians by offering services such as art consulting, art sourcing, and acquisition advice for free.    

      Arts Garage
      Best For:
      Finding new and alternative acts and pieces  

      If the Boca Raton arts scene has undergone a metamorphosis, the Arts Garage serves as the cocoon in which area creators grow. As a 501 (C) (B) nonprofit, Arts Garage is dedicated to both highlighting local artists and acts, while bringing some of the world’s greatest artists and performers to South Florida’s stages. They accomplish this by hosting these works and performances in their maker space, a physical garage in Delray Beach. One of Arts Garage’s most raved showings is the Grassroots Gallery, where works by upcoming artists are hosted, elevating them to the world stage. The upcoming “WANDERLUST” exhibit features photography by Mitchell Jacobson and Samuel Spear Jr., each talented street photographers in their own right. Jacobson’s unflinching and bold shots contrast brilliantly against Spear Jr.’s soft snapshots of daily life. Displayed in the same gallery, their photography complements each others’ effortlessly.  

      Ann Norton Sculpture Garden
      Best For:
      Those who like their art in a medium that they can get a feel for.  

      Built from the former residence of famous sculptor Ann Weaver Norton, the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden lets its guests appreciate both fine art and botany. There are more than 100 original works by Weaver in the garden, and some select pieces by sculptors renowned in their own right. When you’re not marveling at the drama and presence of Norton’s imposing, expansive designs, you’ll be agape at the rare species of tropical plants that fill the gardens, including palms and cycads. Your awe was planned -  the garden was planned to showcase the art within it, much like coming across ancient statues in an old forest.  

      Boca Raton Museum of Art
      Best For:
      A complete and enveloping art experience  

      Curators of this museum scour the world for artists and pieces that show off styles, mediums, viewpoints, and experiences unique to certain areas of the world, while also highlighting works that are local to the area. One such example of the museum’s work in displaying local works and viewpoints would be the Boca Raton Museum Artists Guild, which runs juried gallery exhibitions roughly every month to show off works crafted by members. Past winner Oksana Urban depicts life in South Florida with an airy sort of quality, using pastel colors to paint scenes of placid beach landscapes and the locals who inhabit them. Contrast this with the Photography collection in the museum’s permanent collection. In Bernice Abbot’s New York Stock Exchange, she captures the frenetic pace of daily life in New York with specific choices in composition and framing. The Boca Raton Museum of Art takes their patrons art literacy one step further with programs such as Boca Screening, which shows interviews and films related to items in the temporary collection, and docent tours, which shed light on an artist’s line of thinking. The museum is not content with hanging pictures on the wall and calling it a day-its staff dedicate themselves to offering access to works that have made an impact in the art world, while increasing the knowledge and art experience of everyone who passes through its doors.

      Boca Raton is not just the center of South Florida’s art world, it’s where today’s art movements are made. Every day brings up the next artist to dominate the social scene, or the next theater production to take the world by storm, or discovery of a piece made by a revolutionary artist. The minute that you take your eyes off of Boca Raton is the minute that you’ll miss the next big thing. Much of it happens near St. Andrews Country Club, a work of art of itself.  

      You’ll find far more than exceptional facilities and social programming at St. Andrews. You will uncover a peaceful, private and unpretentious lifestyle that is beaming with comfort and elegance. With the action of Boca Raton at your doorstep there is nothing you can’t have or do.

  • Your Guide: Pros & Cons of Buying in a Country Club
    • Your Guide: Pros & Cons of Buying in a Country Club

      If you could live anywhere, why should you choose to live in a country club? Some say that the preconceptions of life at a country club don’t measure up to the reality, while others don’t feel that they’re worth the investment. We’ve broken down the pros and cons for you. Let us know what you decide.  

      PROS  

      1.      Peace of Mind   Upon arriving home you’ll pass through a manned entry gate and drive through the clean and peaceful streets of your club. Life at a country club always feels calm, secure, and worry-free.  

      2.      Unmatched Amenities   From state-of-the-art fitness and training centers to championship golf courses, clay tennis courts to spa services and on-site dining, the amenities inside a country club far outweigh amenities in any regular community.  

      3.      Social Calendar   Country clubs usually have an entire department dedicated to crafting unique events each month for the club. There’s never a dull moment and every holiday will be celebrated with gusto.  

      4.      Neighbors That Become Family   When you live in a club surrounded by like-minded families it’s just natural to bond and forge long-lasting friendships with your neighbors.  

      5.      Healthy Lifestyle   With the full social calendar, there’s always plenty to do in a country club; for social engaged members there are tons of things to get involved with and different ways to support charitable causes. It’s a place for mind, body and spirit to thrive.  

      CONS  

      1.      Monthly HOA   It’s par for the course at the best country clubs and it means that the club is impeccably maintained and common areas are always pristine.  

      2.      Board Governed   When you live in a country club membership is in control and guides the club management and staff to provide just the right amount of amenities and services.    

      3.      Rules and Guidelines   Good rules make good neighbors. In a country club, members have the ability to set the rules together and then everyone lives by them.    

      At St. Andrews Country Club we feel the pros outweigh the cons. Who wouldn’t be excited at the thought of advanced security systems, amenities of all kinds, and a receptive professional management team?

      Weather
      Many visitors and future residents are drawn to Boca Raton’s great weather. With
       an average amount of 231 sunny days per year, the residents of Boca Raton slip on swimsuits and flip flops instead of heavy winter coats and snow shoes.

      With an endless well of inspiration, Boca Raton draws in artists of all kinds with its warm climate, authentic history, and artistic freedoms. In turn, these artists have helped establish Boca as a cultural centerpiece of Florida, with events such as the Festival of the Arts. The Festival of the Arts Boca runs for two weeks early in the year and offers cultural education to young and young-at-heart alike, alongside presenting live performances and author talks. For painting and sculpture, many residents of Boca Raton turn to the Boca Raton Museum of Arts, which curates a healthy collection of artists from around the world and around the corner.

Mizner Park, an expansive outdoor market street, is where local boutiques such as Marcella’s stand in direct proximity to high-end brands such as Coach.

  • Discover What Makes the Golf Program at St. Andrews Country Club A One-of-A-Kind Experience You Won't Find Anywhere Else
    • Discover What Makes the Golf Program at St. Andrews Country Club A One-of-A-Kind Experience You Won't Find Anywhere Else

       The magic of St. Andrews is the synergy between its outstanding facilities, peerless professional staff, and a discerning membership that appreciates an active lifestyle. The fundamentals of golf never change, but the way you experience the game certainly does. For members of St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, the ultimate fulfillment is found on the golf course.  

      The Club has two signature designed courses; the Olde Course which was completely renovated in 2016 and is now the Fazio II Course, designed by Tommy Fazio II and the Arnold Palmer Signature ® Design Course. Both 18-hole Championship courses are distinctively challenging as each designer intended. The courses are complemented with verdant fairways, impeccable greens, rolling berms and water hazards and over 70-acres of side-lakes, waterways and wooded areas. 

      A unique feature at St. Andrews is that no tee times are required so members can tee off at sunrise or the back nine at dusk. The club also features a deep-piled putting green, driving range and a brand new chipping area. 

      St. Andrews Country Club offers a variety of amenities that allow you to make the best of your golfing experience including a state-of-the-art Golf Performance Center featuring an indoor hitting bay, V1 Digital Coaching System and FlightScope Launch Monitor® technologies, and a Callaway Golf®-branded club fitting area. These special amenities allow you to visualize firsthand what your golf instructor sees, aid you in adjusting your swing accordingly and enhance your skills in a shorter timeframe. 

      Members also enjoy luxurious locker rooms, club and shoe cleaning service, pro shop and full schedule of clinics and special events. 

      By partnering with Callaway and bringing in V1 and FlightScope technologies, St. Andrews Country Club is the only private club in South Palm Beach County to offer all of these unique services, including instruction in a comprehensive GPC facility. The professional golf instruction staff offers lessons in the GPC, driving range, putting or chipping practice areas or on either of the two 18-hole championship courses. 

      Paul Clivio, Director of Golf and recent recipient of the 2017 Professional of the Year Award from Callaway Golf Company, and the Head Golf Pro and PGA certified staff oversee a full schedule of events, clinics and classes for golfers at all levels of any age. 

      We recently caught up with Mr. Clivio and had a quick convo regarding his recent accomplishment and this is what he had to say. 

      Q: Your career path to become director of golf was unorthodox. After establishing a successful livelihood in the plastics business, you walked away. Tell us about that career choice.

      A: I left a good paying job to make $8.50 an hour, I wanted to work at St. Andrews Country Club that bad! One of the things that makes St Andrews so great is the mutual respect between members and management. We’re all part of the same team to make the club the best it can be every day. St. Andrews has an incredible reputation when it comes to employee loyalty. Most employees and staff have been with the club for their entire career. People don’t want to leave because we make it such a great place to work. 

      Now 23 years later I’m not only the director of golf but about to become president of the SE Florida chapter of the PGA. 

      Q: You were recently awarded the 2017 Professional of the Year Award from Callaway Golf Company. How do you feel about such a prestigious honor?  

      A: I accredit my success to the values my parents instilled in me, especially regarding customer service. My mother is a strong, very customer oriented person who taught me about working with people, listening to what they are saying and really understanding their needs. It’s not about being a great golfer, but more about becoming a better person every day.

      Another thing I accredit is the high standard of Callaway products, and of the club itself. The Golf Performance Center helps golfers find the perfect fit by recording their swings on camera and then play them back to pinpoint issues. 
      The GPC also sells Callaway products. “The best golf company with the best country club, you can’t lose!”

      St. Andrews Country Club, a resident-only Private Golf & Country Club, is located in upscale Boca Raton, Florida near world-class shops, superb dining, cultural attractions and gorgeous area beaches.

  • St. Andrews Serves Up A Dining Experience Fit For A Queen

    • St. Andrews Serves Up A Dining Experience Fit For A Queen  


      Chef Darren McGrady, world-renowned for his time as personal chef to Queen Elizabeth II, Diana, Princess of Whales and Princes’ William and Harry, is going to be serving up a dining experience to remember at St. Andrews Country Club. Chef Darren has cooked for Presidents’ Ford, Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush and has made appearances on Oprah, CNN, and the Today Show, just to name a few.  

      He is now a chef, author, culinary consultant, event planner and public speaker living in Dallas, TX. His first cookbook titled “Eating Royally; Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen’ is now in sixth print with all of his advance and royalties donated to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation.  

       
      From 1980-1982 Darren trained at the prestigious Savoy Hotel, London achieving the position of Chef-de-partie Saucier.   In 1982, he moved to the Royal Kitchen at Buckingham Palace where for 11 years he cooked for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and their guests on a daily basis and catered banquets for Foreign Heads of State including Presidents’ Bush, Clinton, Reagan and Ford. His duties included traveling with the royal family to Windsor Castle, Sandringham House and Balmoral Castle as well as on the Royal Yacht Britannia on royal tours around the world.  

      In 1993 he moved to Kensington Palace as Private Chef to H.R.H. the Princess of Wales. For four years (until the tragic accident in August 1997) he took control of Princess Diana’s, William and Harry’s day-to-day menus and the preparation and catering of private and official lunch and dinner parties, liaising with the Princess daily.    

       

      Declining an offer from H.R.H. the Prince of Wales to become his Private Chef at St. James Palace, Darren decided to pursue a new challenge in the USA where he moved to in 1998 with his wife Wendy. They have three children, Kelly, Lexie and Harry.   Since the Princess’ death, he has devoted much of his free time working for causes she supported, including shelters for battered women, charities for children with chronic illnesses and disabilities and breast cancer charities.   He also teaches cooking classes, hosts corporate and charity events that include presentations on the royal family.  

      Darren recently became the first private chef invited to cook at the prestigious James Beard House in New York and is featured on American Airlines first and business class in-flight meals between Europe and the USA.  
  • What gives Boca Raton, Florida its reputation as a wonderful place to live work & play?

    • It’s hard to isolate one thing that makes Boca Raton special.  Boca Raton has it all; miles of pristine beaches, endless stretches of parks and bike paths, beautiful golf courses, tennis courts and water parks, class A-schools, culinary triumphs, welcoming neighborhoods and enviable real estate for every taste and budget. Add in national franchises, wine and food events and year-round climate made for outdoor diversions, and you have something to do every weekend.  

      Shopping & Dining
      Boca Raton is also a shopper’s paradise. It’s home to some of the best stores in the world. Whether your style is chic and trendy, relaxed BoHo or sophisticated preppy, Boca has couture fashion for every price range and taste. Boca’s vast culinary landscape is also first class, with numerous options ranging from the best dining in South Florida to the hottest new chefs waiting to be discovered. Great Italian and lauded steakhouses share corners with family-friendly spots and time-honored bars, among others.  

      Beautiful Beaches
      The 70-mile stretch of coastline from Palm Beach through Broward County attracts visitors from around the world. Water temperatures are almost always in the 70s and 80s, so swimming in December and January is a favorite pastime for vacationers. Each mile of beach has its own characteristics, from dune-lined stretches of pure serenity to those with bustling beachside shops and restaurants.   There are reefs up and down our coastline and one in particular is distinguished by Red Reef Park, an underwater reef teeming with sea life in waters only 8 feet deep. Offshore, along the coast there are roughly 70 sites for divers and 25 of these are shipwrecks.   For the sport fishermen, there are several charters for both drift boats and deep-sea fishing but if waterskiing is more your speed, you can slip on skis or jump on a wakeboard at Ski Rixen. Have grandkids? Then enjoy a day of fun at Coconut Cove Waterpark, and slide down one of its two four-story water slides, exercise in the lap pool or explore its 897-foot-wide river ride.  

      The Arts Are Thriving in Boca Raton

      From festivals and galleries to theatre and musical performances, Boca Raton is a chockablock with arts entertainment.

There are 140 courses in Palm Beach County alone- and some of the most beautiful are in Boca Raton. Palm Beach County hosts professional golf events as well. PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens will host the PGA Honda Classic on February 19-25, 2018.   Arnold Palmer Signature Design at St. Andrews set out to make certain the 18-hole course would leave an indelible mark. The course offers stunning vistas, weaves naturally through rolling elevation changes, and presents risk and reward opportunities that keep the game fresh – even for the devoted daily player. As a Palmer Signature Design course, the layout is the culmination of Arnold Palmer’s more than 40 years of building golf courses of distinction.   The Fazio II Course is a recent addition to St. Andrews Country Club. Designed by golf course architect Tom Fazio II, all 18 holes are special and unique creating a challenging, yet fair, quality of play, requiring players to bring their best golf game. While the course may play long at over 7,000 yards, the layout has generous landing areas and open approaches to the greens.

    • 7 Things You Might Not Know About St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton

      St. Andrews Country Club of Boca Raton, a resident-only Distinguished Club of the World and ranked in the Top Ten of America’s Healthiest Club’s is internationally recognized for magnificent estate residences and recently approved $25 million in renovations. Phase III of the Club Improvement Plan includes a complete renovation of the Fitness/Tennis building beginning in summer 2018.

      The Club features superior amenities, two 18-hole championship golf courses, including an Arnold Palmer Signature Design® and the brand new Fazio II designed by Tommy Fazio II. The club offers a comprehensive Golf Performance Center with indoor hitting bay, private practice area, V1 Digital Coaching System and FlightScope Launch Monitor® technologies, and a Callaway Golf® branded club fitting area. Other features include a full service spa and fitness center and a 125,000 square foot completely remodeled Clubhouse with five dining venues. A pristine Recreation & Aquatic Center features three pools, poolside dining, Splash Club and state-of-the-art playground equipment and air-conditioned game room. St. Andrews has played host to numerous PGA golf exhibitions led by touring pros such as Phil Mickelson, Arnold Palmer, John Daly and Rocco Mediate, and is the home course to LPGA Touring Professional and resident Morgan Pressel. St. Andrews, along with Aaron Krickstein, Director of Tennis, host a variety of exhibition matches with ATP Tour such as Jimmy Connors, Andy Roddick, Jim Courier, Ivan Lendl and Jimmy Arias.

      FREEDOM TO PLAY

      St. Andrews has a no-tee-time policy on its Arnold Palmer Signature Design and Tommy Fazio II courses. Typical playing time is under four hours, and should you choose you can literally roll out of bed and head to the first tee without being held up.   

      WORLD-RENOWNED GOLF & TENNIS PROFESSIONALS

      The community has a long history of attracting the best of the best.  Bob Toski, PGA Tour champion and a past number one ranked golf instructor in America, joined St. Andrews in 1979 as its first director of golf and is the Pro Emeritus. Long known for his relationship with Golf Digest Schools, Toski quickly set the standard for the club’s golf programming and education.


      In 1994, Martin Hall, one of Golf Magazine’s “Top-100 Teachers,” joined St. Andrews Country Club as an instructor while studying under the guidance of Toski. He was later promoted to director of instruction and with his tutelage, Morgan Pressel began her professional golf journey becoming an LPGA superstar.   

      Martin Hall is currently listed as one of “America’s Best Teachers” by Golf Digest. As a former assistant to Toski, he continues a tradition of innovative instruction.   “Premier golf instruction is a proud tradition of St. Andrews Country Club,” said Craig D. Martin, CCM, COO/GM. “Our Golf Performance Center goes to great lengths to provide the latest teaching tools including an indoor hitting bay, V1 Digital Coaching System, and FlightScope Launch Monitor technologies. You have heard of celebrity chef visits; at St. Andrews we have celebrity instructor outings. Past exhibitions have been led by Phil Mickelson, Rocco Mediate, and the always colorful John Daly.”   

      Aaron Krickstein, nine-time ATP Tour titlist and youngest player to win an ATP Tour event oversees St. Andrews Country Club’s tennis complex.   

      “My three older sisters played tennis, so the sport came naturally to me,” recalled Krickstein. “By the time I was 12 years old, I was number one in the country in the 12U division.

      Our family moved to Florida for me to face the world’s best and I turned pro at 16.

      “Funny how things come full circle,” chuckled Krickstein. “I trained at St. Andrews as a teenager and now I have been director of tennis here for 17 years!”

      One week before starting his role at St. Andrews, Aaron had a panic attack and couldn’t get out of bed. “I was frozen in fear,” remembered Krickstein. “I almost quit before I started. I knew how to perform on the court, but a managerial position was out of my wheelhouse. My dad had a stern heart-to-heart talk with me and convinced me I was the man for the job.”   Today, Aaron manages three full-time teaching pros and one of the largest tennis operations in Florida. “Tennis is not an afterthought at St. Andrews. I think my years of competition gave me a different teaching perspective. Similar to how I had to size up opponents, I must evaluate how students are likely to learn best. You quickly discover on the court there are all types of people and personalities. I supervise all aspects of our tennis operations, but I must admit, I still have a fondness for being on the court.”    

      WORLD-CLASS GOURMET DINING

      Culinary options have been evolutionary instead of revolutionary. St. Andrews has been fortunate to have seasoned culinary teams that have worked in the kitchens for many years providing a menu that’s wholesome and ever-changing. St. Andrews doesn’t provide lip service to nutrition. In the lower level clubhouse terrace, there’s a garden with 15 different herbs that allow chefs the ability to creatively reduce the use of butter and oil without sacrificing taste.   

      SPECTACULAR AMENITIES AND SERVICES 

      Attracting new members who appreciate the highest quality of facilities and service has been the club’s mission from day one. “Our Club Improvement Plan has played a significant role in attracting younger and more diverse members by creating recreation and dining areas that promote spaces for families of all ages to enjoy,” said Martin. “Continuously improving our amenities and offering the best of everything to our membership gives us that “X” Factor to stand apart from other clubs in the area.”   

      ONE OF AMERICA’S TOP TEN HEALTHIEST CLUBS 

      For the third year in a row, St. Andrews Country Club has been recognized as one of the top ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. This distinction is awarded to a select percentage of private clubs who must excel in specific criteria such as providing healthy menu items to members and staff, accommodating health-related needs and providing an array of activities that leverage the amenities and facility.   

      ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCES 

      In addition to superior amenities and service, residents at St. Andrews enjoy once in a lifetime experience such as courtside seats to the Jimmy Connors and Aaron Krickstein Reunion Exhibition held last February. Other exclusive events include the Annual Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Tournament featuring resident LPGA touring professional, Morgan Pressel and friends. The Annual Camp St. Andrews Color War is another member favorite event where the entire membership, regardless of age, gather together and compete for the championship title. Hence the motto, St Andrews is where neighbors become friends and friends become family.  

      REAL ESTATE AT ST ANDREWS COUNTRY CLUB 

      With 727 single-family luxury estate homes in one exclusive neighborhood set over a lushly landscaped 700+ acres, St. Andrews has earned a reputation for excellence with its, “best-of-the-best” security. From the manned and gated entryway to the on-site Medical Response Team, the security services are quietly and inconspicuously ever present.
