South Florida country clubs have long been considered a pleasant and welcome retreat for pre-retirees and retirees looking for a better quality of life. However, in recent times the market has expanded to include much younger age ranges and families, as well as those looking for more year-round luxury living where increased space and financial benefits are now priorities. For those fortunate enough to search for a home anywhere in the world, or even those just looking in local Boca Raton, there are countless reasons why St. Andrews Country Club should top your list – here are a few.
1. Better Golfing Opportunities
There are two gorgeous 18-hole championship golf courses at St. Andrews, but what makes members consistently fall in love with their home courses is because of the changing rolls and elevations- the courses require players to execute but also think, meaning that every round offers a new set of challenges. Additionally, due to a much smaller membership base, there are hardly ever tee times and members are always welcome to drive up and start playing. Not to mention the on-site Golf Performance Center which features an indoor hitting bay, V1 Digital Coaching System and FlightScope Launch Monitor® technologies, and a Callaway Golf®-branded club fitting area. Learn more about the one-of-a-kind golfing experience here.
2. Top Fitness Classes & Facilities
St. Andrews has been recognized as a Distinguished Club of the World, and a Top Ten Healthiest Club in America because of its commitment to providing happy and healthy lifestyle opportunities for all members. This is in part due to its outstanding, and recently enhanced, Fitness Center and the personal training and unique classes offered.

3. Exclusive World-Class Dining Experiences
The four on-site restaurants at St. Andrews are managed by Executive Chef Steve Viggiano and are regarded as some of the best restaurants in all of South Florida. These member-only specialty restaurants have two secrets to their success: the receptive and prompt staff that work to fulfill every request, and the fresh ingredients that the chefs have access to, including their onsite herb garden. Learn more about each of the restaurants here. And if you’re sheltering in place or don’t have the opportunity to join us onsite, try your hand at some of Chef Steve’s at-home recipes including Chicken Scarpariello and Eggplant Parmigiana.
4. Award-Winning Spa & Salon
The recently expanded and enhanced Spa & Salon at St. Andrews is the World Spa Awards 2019 Winner North America’s Best Day Spa. Between its highly experienced staff and world-class facilities it’s no surprise that this year it’s nominated for two more awards: World Spa Awards 2020 North America’s Best Day Spa and World Spa Awards 2020 World’s Best Private Members Club Spa. And this superb facility is managed by Dawn MacLellan, Director of the Spa & Salon, who has also been recognized nationally and internationally for her talents and commitment to the industry.
5. Always Putting Members First
2020 has presented a lot of new challenges to the club industry and with it, many new opportunities. St. Andrews hasn’t wasted any time in rising to the occasion and launching new and innovative services for its members. From a brand new onsite Mini-Market to virtual cooking classes and wine events, weekly Curbside Cocktails and new takeout and delivery menus, and more – there hasn’t been a dull moment at the Club and members have been able to sit back, relax and really enjoy all of the gifts this Club lifestyle provides for them.
