Boca Lago Place Club hopes motels assistance some Palm Seaside County golf courses

A small piece of a foam noodle is placed around the flagstick at the 18th hole so that golfers won't put their hands in the cup and potentially spread the coronavirus to another person at the Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter on April 28, 2020.

Palm Beach County has referred to as itself “Florida’s Golf Capital” for a lot more than 20 yrs, even solidifying its status with a trademark.

To retain that assert, in the encounter of state clubs that battle with retaining membership and fending off growth stress, the county may possibly approve a modify in its code to permit country golf equipment establish accommodations on website.

Boca Lago Golf & Place Club is requesting this code modify “to give an alternative supply of earnings” to avoid “the closure of a non-worthwhile golfing training course,” county files say.

Whilst the proposal specifically addresses Boca Lago, situated on the northwest corner of Palmetto Park Highway and Florida’s Turnpike, the code change, if permitted, may apply to other planned unit developments with golfing courses in suburban Palm Seashore County, with the site of the upcoming hotel minimal to the development’s professional spot, defined Jeff Brophy, an agent with WGI representing Boca Lago.
