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.
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.
