Bradenton-based builder has big plans for esteemed Boca Royale Golf & Country Club - 500 new homes & major upgrade to club facilities planned.

Residents of Boca Royale Golf & Country Club will start to welcome a few more neighbors in the coming months and also begin to see significant improvements to the club’s facilities and amenities. Neal Communities has purchased the remaining undeveloped land within Boca Royale of the 800-acre premier golf club community in south Sarasota County, including 500 home lots.

Neal, the national award-winning builder/developer based in Lakewood Ranch, developed the much acclaimed University Park in south Manatee County, and aims to bring that golf course community’s reputation for environmentally friendly development to Boca Royale.

“Boca Royale’s classic design for this master-planned community attracted our team to this unique opportunity to bring our firm’s quest for quality to this environmental jewel,” says Pat Neal, President of Neal Communities.

A gated community, located off of State Road 776 in north Englewood, Boca Royale features an 18-hole golf course, clubroom, restaurant, tennis club, and 400 acres of wetlands and undeveloped home sites. Founded by George Thompson, Sr., a Tampa neighborhood developer, Boca Royale has been in continuous development since 1977, and is now home to 600 residents.

Neal plans to rejuvenate the country club facilities, which they will lease and manage, and starting in June begin to develop roughly 500 new home sites under the current plan. Resident members of the homeowners’ association and the condominium association are extended club privileges.

Neal Communities was recently named one of 2012’s “America’s Best Builders” by BUILDER Magazine. The company is ranked #1 locally by Metrostudy and by Hanley Wood Market Intelligence based on number of home sales and ranked #94 nationally among home builders by BUILDER Magazine. To-date, Neal has built over 8,600 homes in Southwest Florida. As the area’s largest and most established, locally-owned and operated private builder, Neal Communities is continually striving for excellence in every aspect of the home building and development business. Neal Signature Homes, John Neal Homes, Charlene Neal PureStyle, Waterscapes Pools & Spas, State Street Mortgage, and Allegiant Title Professionals all contribute to the firm’s continued, record-setting local success.
