Your General Manager, Michael Gibson Growing Together
S ummer has arrived. For some this is a time to travel and others prefer to stay at home, enjoying the local flavors and entertainment without the crowds found in South Florida during the busy winter months. For most of our team, summer is a time to plan for the upcoming season schedule, prepare the 2020 budget and complete major routine maintenance projects both in the clubhouse and throughout the property. Many of the clubhouse projects will be completed in August during the closing of the dining rooms from August 6 through 21. Lunch will be available at the Pool Café on Wednesdays through Sundays during this time. While closed, we will be cleaning the carpeting, painting many areas of the clubhouse and additional general building repairs. The golf course will close August 6 through August 16 for scheduled agronomic practices that are recommended to provide the best year-round turf conditions. Growing together is a perfect theme for this newsletter. After many changes over the past year we are taking time to grow together in many ways. Our food and beverage team has made great strides under the direction of our Director of Operations, Jennifer Jolly. Service standards have improved and we continue to hire the best professionals in the industry. The team has received warm accolades from recent catered events with Carla Hull at the helm. Catering is a great way to help the club so if you have a friend or family
member thinking about having an event please send them our way. Our golf team has also had many changes over the past year and we continue to see excitement in the department as they discuss staffing for next season. Shawn Costello and his team have done a wonderful job in creating enhancements to the golf and services program which can be experienced daily.
And speaking of growing, our future is extremely bright as we put together the final touches on the plans for our Sports & Wellness Center and resort style pool renovation. Our site plan has been finalized and the enhancements planned for our outdoor areas including the pool, food & beverage, kids splash pad and children’s play area are incredible. Our planned date to begin construction continues to be April 20, 2020. It’s the time of year when home sales start to pick up. We are pleased to see an increase in sales in May and June as evidenced by the recent contracts on our newly renovated condominiums in Le Jardin. Our stay & play program, “Glimpse of the Grove” is re- sponsible for producing the opportunity to complete one of those sales. We still have one renovated unit available, so please share this information with a family member or friend that is ready to get a taste of Boca Grove. Our builder program is thriving for the first time in many years and we have several investors and builders interested in investing in the future of Boca Grove. Renovations and upgrades are at an all-time high within our gates and the process of prospective members having availability at a refurbished new home or condominium is an exciting reality. Marketing, marketing, marketing….Jennifer Jolly and I, will be traveling north this summer on a promotional tour of high end country clubs in the Toronto area from August 11 to August 15. We have been working on this trip and have arranged meetings at several clubs to host cocktail receptions introducing Boca Grove to potential members and residents. We will also be inviting our own members and their friends who live near the clubs we visit. If you happen to be in the area while we are there, please let us know, we would love to invite you to join us. Growing together is not just about the staff at Boca Grove. We are also growing with you and your family. One of the best things to witness is the close family bonds at our dinners and special events. Just like every family, the Boca Grove family grows closer every day and we are glad to share the memories together. Thank you for your role in helping us to inspire members to enjoy every day of their lives. Creating fond memories and lasting relationships is something we will always strive for.
Happy Summer! Michael J. Gibson General Manager/COO
Vision Inspire and enable members to enjoy every day of their lives.
