Golf Getaways: Winter Homes In Fabulous Florida

WESTCHESTER MAGAZINE – Golf is the lifeblood of the Boca West community. Four courses – one each by Pete Dye and Jim Fazio and two by Arnold Palmer – surround the 54 residential villages. The first Palmer course opened in 1997 and is distinguished by water in play on 12 holes. Palmer came back in 1999 to build his second course, a shot-maker’s delight that makes you stop and think before you hit every shot. The Fazio course is highlighted by water, too, this time by waterfalls on four holes. Pete Dye’s unique styling is evident throughout the challenging course that bears his name. The third hole, for example, plays straight away, but a palm-tree-studded waste area stretches along the entire fairway from tee to green.

Home ownership choices include single family homes, townhomes, garden apartments, and even a nine-story building now under construction, the Akoya, which will feature thoughtfully designed two- and three-bedroom residences with valet service and 24-hour security. Homes in Boca West range in price from $200,000 to $5 million, not including a mandatory membership equity fee of $70,000.
