The 450-acre Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club offers a historic and luxurious country club that since its creation has been a gathering place for Boca Raton’s philanthropic, high society, and social leaders. Founded in 1959, architectural specifications for the subdivision were so stringent with underground utilities, white roofs, and larger than normal lots, the builders protested that they would not be able to sell homes, but the most expensive lots sold out first!
Royal Palm has had many famous golf designers, including Robert Trent Jones and “Gentleman Joe” Lee. In 2003 and again in 2014, legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus led the redesign of the course, which is both challenging and beautifully scenic. Members enjoy a full calendar of events, ranging from the very competitive Royal Blue Golf Tournament & Commodore’s Cups to the more relaxed 3 Jills & A Jack and weekly mixed events.
The Yacht Club is for members and offers fine dining & organized events, and has a wine room with space for sampling, terrace dining, a fire pit for late night events and a gorgeous view of the marina. For kids, there is the Sprout Zone, home base for our Junior Palmer events and kids' nights. For recreation the club pool offers a saline chlorination system for a softer swim with less irritation, making it ideal for doing laps, water aerobics, or just taking a swim. Five Tennis Courts and Sports Court offer clinics for all ages and the Fitness Center has a personal & a group training exercise studio along with a dedicated Pilates area. The center also offers wellness lectures, demonstrations, and guest speakers.
