Full-service country club (CC) living in South Florida is desirable but traditionally not an inexpensive proposition. It involves paying an initiation fee on entry - most or all non-refundable - and annual dues (over and above HOA costs that cover residence contribution to common area maintenance). Moreover, competition is fierce between clubs continuously upgrading amenities, with some ignoring that better affordability is crucial to retain a vibrant and motivated membership. Thus, in numerous cases (e.g., Indian Spring, Delaire Country Club, Parkland Golf and Country Club, and Boca Greens), the concept of resident-only members exited the model, undoing the original vision. In other instances (e.g., Polo Trace), hard times forced HOAs to invite real estate developers to buy the golf course for exclusive development of new homes. The bottom line is this: buying into a CC involves carefully analyzing its stability and fortitude in the face of aging memberships and dwindling motivation to contribute to elaborate CC facilities financially.
Homes For sale in Quail Ridge Country Club in Boynton Beach are a prime example of entry to a thriving CC enclave that got the formula spot-on ahead of any potential dilemma. The latter has limited outside membership (completely sold out in 2022) and makes it mandatory to join the CC for owners of the 946 homes (i.e., 549 terrace and garden condominiums, 334 villas, and 63 custom SF houses). The residences - 1,000 sq. ft. to 5,000 sq. ft. under air (UA) - maximize being in this fantastic location spread over 600 acres of two 18-hole golf courses that feature manicured, picturesque fairways and spectacular lakes. As a result, the sparkling water and garden outlooks are breathtaking.
Moreover, the membership costs ($416 - $832 monthly) with an initiation fee of $25,000 to $50,000 (non-refundable) are impressively low for the services and amenities delivered to homeowners on their doorsteps. For example, after adding HOA fees of $463 per month, full golf-included membership is $15,600 annually - an expense that compares favorably to many resort communities with no golfing facilities. Thus, in our view, Quail Ridge Country Club homes for sale represent an extraordinary CC value proposition as long as the home prices can compete with comparables (which we will deal with below).
