"The redesign of Royal Palm was very rewarding. We were able to create an entirely new course that offers challenge for all levels of play. The 7,003 yards from the back tees will test any professional or amateur." - Jack Nicklaus

Originally designed in 1959 by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., our private golf course in Palm Beach County evolved under the supervision of Joe Lee and underwent a dramatic change, affording Royal Palm the distinct privilege to enjoy one of the few Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses in South Florida.


In 2013, Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club welcomed Mr. Nicklaus back to his course, seeking advice on the re-grassing and renovation which began in 2014. With his full support, the Club completed of the project including installation of Celebration Bermuda on our tees, fairways, rough and green surrounds and re-grassing the greens with Tiff-Eagle. Reshaping and reconstruction of the bunkers as well as modification to some of the greens was endorsed by Jack Nicklaus Design and ensured that our course remains a world class experience for golfers of any level.


Blue lakes and water features, including marshy wetlands filled with aquatic plants, strategically placed bunkers and smaller, well protected greens are not the only challenges awaiting the golfer. Large waste areas have been carved between several holes, creating a new dimension of risk and adding to the visual relief of the emerald green fairways.


The par fives are very much risk/reward and because of the inclusion of five sets of tees it’s very playable no matter what level of golfer steps up the tee. Forward tees play just over 5,000 yards and championship tees play just under 7,050 yards.

There are no forced carries anywhere on the course and while many of the greens have adjacent hazards, Mr. Nicklaus gave the higher handicapper a bail out area next to the green so that a 150 yard shot over water is not so intimidating (honestly!).

Frustration is just a wandering tee shot away but landing areas are ample. If you find water or sand, you asked for it. Second shots, both on par fours and fives, are radically more serious. Deep bunkers, water hazards and collection area stand sentinel to push your fortitude.

The fourth hole epitomizes this design. A mid-length hole with an ever-so-slight elbow right, the only danger off the tee is a large trap at the corner. Blame only yourself if you find this sand. Blame Jack, if your incoming shot sinks into the lake short and left of the green or the bunker above the hole on the right, or comes up just short and rolls a bit back toward you.

Among all of Boca Raton's private golf courses, our course is both challenging yet enjoyable. Learn more about our yacht and country club membership or take a virtual tour of our private golf course.

Some Members of our Men's Club Committee with Coach Schnellenberger.


Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club is striving to be recognized as a Platinum Club by Club Leaders Forum. Platinum Clubs are regarded as America's 200 most highly admired private clubs.

What Makes a Club Platinum?

1. A History of Excellence

The top private clubs have been around for a long time. Many were founded over a century ago. Some, from their inception, and many others through accumulated passage of time, have been recognized by all who know them as being domiciles of excellence. Whether this heritage is perpetuated in a formal mission statement or informally passed along within its membership and staff, it is deeply imbued in the fortunate who belong or work there. The membership and staff alike consider the perpetuation of this history of excellence as a mission.

2. The Quality of Membership
No club can be great without having great members. This means a membership that represents the best qualities of those communities in which the club exists. Acceptance and compatibility transcend all discriminating issues. Members like each other and the staff that serves them. They are knowledgeable about matters that affect the club and treat the facilities as though they were their own - which, in a real sense, they are. Great members care so much about their club that they work hard to attract prospective new members who are equally great.

3. The Condition of its Facilities
A celebrated golf course or magnificent clubhouse by themselves do not make a club great. Rather it is the total array of facilities, their general excellence and fulfillment of member needs in every area of function and activity. These clubs invest on a regular and planned basis in the maintenance, supervision, and replacement of grounds, plant and equipment. They ensure that each piece of equipment and every facility is well maintained. They do not have to be brand new.

4. The Caliber of its Professional Staff
Many is the club with rich heritage and renowned amenities that does not qualify as a great club. Without a staff of equally high quality, such a club is missing on its most important cylinders. This excellence must be as well exhibited by the newest dishwasher or waiter as it is by the club's longest tenured staff. The club will be recognized in its community as a good place to work, where the pay, benefits, environment of work, and job security are attested to as excellent year after year. Ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen is a maxim of the finest clubs.

5. Enlightenment and Consistent Governance
Great clubs are led by presidents, owners, and directors who understand that their roles are strategic and policy setting. It is the professional staff that carries out the policies and day-to-day operations. Boards of this caliber work hard at ensuring that there is continuity of effort and direction, term after term. The nominating committee or owner takes their work seriously, ensuring that the best qualified members serve on the board - and that the board itself is broadly representative of the club membership as a whole.

6. Adaptable to Changing Times
As social institutions, clubs themselves undergo change - gradual as they will be. A club that resists this, sometimes because of restrictive bylaws or the resistance of elements on the board or in the membership, will slowly wither and eventually perish as members join more vital clubs or quit. Great clubs work at anticipating their members' - and prospective new members' - needs and interests. Such clubs have a mission statement that says who they are and a strategic plan that says where they want to be. Great clubs view this plan not simply as a document to put on the shelf and refer to periodically but as a road map that they are now moving along.

7. Member Devotion to their Club's Distinctive Culture
Great clubs celebrate their heritage and religiously observe their time-honored traditions. They know that the member/guest golf event is always the third weekend in June, that the general manager gets dunked at the year-end pool party, and that all the ladies at the annual president's ball must be wearing yellow rose corsages. There is pride and togetherness in observing traditions and practices handed down through generations of members - oftentimes the older and more non-sensical they seem, the better. There is a true cult of culture in great clubs and it is stringently observed.

8. A Spirit of Generosity in its Community
Many of America's premier private clubs were founded around a spirit of giving to its community or the nation. This is particularly true of great clubs such as the Union League of Chicago and the Union League of Philadelphia. Others have developed their philanthropic and participatory relationships with cause and community through the caring nature of members and over the passage of time. Their motivations for acts of generosity are not done to generate overt publicity for themselves but in the spirit of genuine care - with as little publicity as possible.

9. Prudent Fiscal Management
No institution of any kind can go through decades and generations without, from time to time, encountering serious financial challenges. Many a great club barely survived the Great Depression or the dues deductibility issue of the late 1980's. Great clubs have had the wisdom to plan well and invest well. Initiation fees go into a capital, not operating fund. Dues and other costs are set to fund operations, improvements, and depreciation, so that member services and facilities are maintained at an affordable and exceptional level. Their boards understand the need for regular dues increases and occasional assessments.

10. Universal Acknowledgement of Greatness
Great clubs are widely known as such by the strata of American society that frequent private clubs and are well traveled. They tout them universally. This perception extends well beyond a club's community or the venue (i.e., a great golf course, etc.) for which it is best known. From time to time a great club will have a poor leader board - or even a bad apple or two in the membership - but the truly great clubs are like great families. They possess the wisdom to progress, cope, and have fun being together. The future for any great club is what it always has been: The ability to attract and retain the greatest new members it possibly can.

Dockage Fees Reimbursement Policy

Many of our boats will have to find alternate dockage during the construction of the new marina. In order to ensure a slip in the new marina, Members will continue to be billed the regular dockage fees pursuant to the terms of their Dockage License Agreement. 

If the member is required to pay for dockage elsewhere as a direct result of having to relocate during the construction, the Club will credit the Member’s account for dockage fees up to $13.50 per foot per month. In order to receive a credit, the Member must provide a receipt showing proof of payment for outside dockage. Credit will not be given to Members who do not have to pay for alternate dockage as a direct result of having to relocate. Credit will not be given to Members whose boats ordinarily travel during the summer months and would vacate the Royal Palm Marina as part of their ordinary annual schedule.

February 14, 2015

As you know, we are performing a complete renovation of the North Dock, East Dock and South Dock of our Marina. Our old concrete docks will be replaced with new, state of the art, floating docks with all new power pedestals. This project is anticipated to begin in mid April and is expected to be completed in November. 

All permits for the Marina renovation are in to the proper State and Federal agencies. We have received approval from the State and the review by the Army Corps of Engineers and other Federal agencies is progressing as anticipated.

We have applied for a grant from the State of Florida to help fund a new stationary waste pump-out system. The Clean Vessel Act Grant Program, through the Department of Environmental Protection, will reimburse the club for 75% of the costs for installing and operating a centralized pump-out station that will be accessible directly from the boat slips.

We are currently in the process of helping our boating Members find alternate dockage during the construction. Several outside marinas have advised that they will have availability. Some have offered discounted group rates for 5 or more boats.
Our new floating docks for the Marina project have been manufactured and will be delivered in the coming weeks. At this time, we are working on a staging area on the west side of the Dock Office to accommodate our new docks until they are installed.

Our Marina Planning Committee is continuing to meet regularly to discuss the planning and preparation of our Marina Renovation. If you have any questions regarding the project, please feel free to contact me at 561-289-3680 or You may also contact our Fleet Captain, Charlie Zumkehr.
