The Polo Club of Boca Raton is proud to announce the grand opening of its family resort complex. The multi-million dollar 50,000-square-foot tropically inspired surroundings include a 7,000 square-foot solar-temperature controlled beach entry pool with waterfalls, spas and rock features. “I join the entire Boca Raton community in celebrating the opening of the Polo Club’s new family resort complex”, said Congressman Ted Deutch, who attended the opening ceremony. “This exciting new addition further solidifies the Polo Club’s reputation for excellence in our community.” The state-of-the-art complex includes outdoor dining at Barefoot Café, a multifunction facility, locker rooms, shaded pavilions and lounge areas, a children’s activity center, playground and separate area with a kiddie pool and splash pads.
In announcing the official opening, The Polo Club’s President of the Board of Directors, Doug Green said, “This new complex is a terrific addition to Polo. It will enable our members and their families and friends to experience and enjoy Polo at its very best. I’m excited and privileged to have been involved with the creation of this resort facility -- it is a dream come true for Polo and its members. In addition to the benefits for our membership, it extends employment to local lifeguards, servers, cooks, and activity coordinators from our immediate area – all of which bodes well for Polo and our local community.” The Polo Club’s Chief Operating Officer and Acting General Manager Stanley Goldberg added, “This is a marvelous achievement not only for The Polo Club, but for the entire South Florida community. We’re absolutely thrilled with the result of this truly magnificent set of grounds and structures and what they have to offer both today and in years to come. The family resort complex was a tremendous team effort.”
The Polo Club retained LEO A DALY, a global leader in planning and design and KAST Construction Company LLC, a West Palm Beach-based full-service construction and project management firm. The multi-million dollar project was expertly executed within the allocated budget and completed on time. “It was exciting to help The Polo Club bring the most recent advancements to country club design by providing a family friendly resort style complex. The new aquatics entertainment area is a centerpiece to enhance friendships and create new memories. The entire Polo Club membership can enjoy this exciting Caribbean-themed village- one that will continue to attract new families to the community.” said Bill Hanser, Managing Principal of Leo A Daly Architects. Dave DeMay, Vice-President of KAST Construction said, “It was a pleasure being part of the team for this exciting project. The Polo Club’s reputation as a leader in the country club industry played an important role in our interest in the family resort complex project. Our entire team enjoyed working with Mr. Green from concept to completion.”
During design and construction, the family resort complex engaged 25 local sub-contractors with an average of 55 employees each making a positive impact on the local economy over a 6-month project. Additional staff was also hired to support the ongoing needs of the new complex and the additional member services offered.
