Boca Greens Country Club is like most Florida golf courses in that it has a rather flat landscape with plenty of water, but it stand out for its scenic views and challenging but player-friendly layout designed by Joe Lee. Water is a prominent presence throughout the course and there are also numerous strategically placed bunkers to contend with, but these difficult elements are nicely balanced by ample room off of the fairways. One of the trickier holes is the par-5 17th, which is almost completely surrounded by water. The layout has a few challenging holes but overall a range of skill levels can play the golf course. There are also five sets of tees to make it even more approachable. Boca Greens C.C. boasts an enjoyable and fair round that is one of the area's best values.

Very good course outlay. Greens in good shape. Fairways need more consistency with grass. Sand traps have very little sand. If this course had money put into it it would be very good.

This is a challenging course with multiple tee boxes for

all level of players. The track gives each hole its unique identity.. Each hole is defined by an array of trees and water..

Most greens are guarded by an array of bunkers. Greens were in good shape but on the slower side today.

Bunkers need more quality sand to allow the golfer the chance to splash their shot to the green.

Too many weeds in the fairway and on the approaches to the putting surface. Great course for a match play game.

I played this course today as I have probably half a dozen times before. The difference is that my past experiences have been pleasant enough to ignore the condition of the course and just be happy that I’m playing golf. Today however, was an entirely different experience. I have never experienced such rudeness from the staff here at Boca Greens. I’ll start by saying that I bought a round of golf for myself and three friends that have never played this course before and left feeling embarrassed that I paid for them to be treated like a second rate citizen. We were rushed on three different occasions which as anyone who plays golf knows that when you get into a bad space mentally it can negatively affect your game. Full disclosure we got off to a little bit of a late start, no more than a few minutes, but I guess that’s enough to follow someone around the course and rush the pace of play through the next 16 holes. We finished with a 4:20 play time for 18 holes but the level of anger from the staff was uncalled for when at one point we were told that we were ruining 60 other people’s games behind us to intimidate us to rush our game, yeah no pressure right?. There’s no time to grab a quick hot dog for the road after the front 9 either. We were approached at that point as well. I guess you are also forced to play for 4 hours with no food either. Do yourself a favor and play anywhere else in the world for a proper golf experience. Boca Greens has no time for their customers but were so happy to take my money for the round. Consider this a loss of business from myself and three friends and any other human being I can possibly convince to enjoy their game somewhere else.

A very good layout, good variety of tees to fit all golfers. With some care on the tees and fairways would be a very good golf course. Greens average but roll well.

Enjoyed the round, and it's all right there in the stars. Pace was decent (4h) even though it felt like we were waiting on shots. Course had been aerated but was sufficiently recovered - no problems with greens. Some of the tee boxes were mostly sand, those need to be shored up. Staff was extremely helpful and patient to first timers. I could put Boca Greens in the summer rotation.

The course had just aerated the greens that were in terrible condition. There should have been a discount for this reason alone. The tee boxes were more like sand traps. They charge for water, normally there are cups, ice and water free for paying golfers at most courses. Yardage markers are few and far between and you would think for the price they charge the carts would have GPS range finders on them.

We played this course today - end of April - greens were aerated very recently so if that’s important to you, you should know. I love the layout of this course. Can’t complain about the pace at all. The course was dry and not in great shape. Still, our round was enjoyable!

First time playing here. Not a bad layout, lots of doglegs. Fairways could use better grass. Too many bad lies after a well placed shot. Greens were in very good condition and some tricky pin placements added to the challenge. Pace was slow, 2 1/2 hr front, but ranger finally got groups moving on back nine. Staff were all friendly. Add extra time to get there as getting through the entry gate can be quite backed up.

Got a great Hot Deal from Golf Now, course not worth their everyday price. Greens in great shape, rolled fast, fairways starting to get junkie. Wouldn't pay more than $45 for this course.
