We launch our “What It Costs” feature with a look at pricing for the Boca Resort.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Do you ever drive by a country club, a resort or other Boca-esque place and ask yourself, “I wonder what it costs to live/play/eat there?” We know you do. We do as well. So BocaNewsNow.com is launching a new feature. We’re calling it “What It Costs” and we will publish the often confidential costs associated with living and playing in Boca Raton.

We’re starting with the “Premiere Club” at The Boca Resort.

Ever wonder how much your friends are paying to causally say things like, “I can’t have a parent-teacher conference at 10A. I’ll miss my massage at the Boca Resort?”

We have the answer…

In its latest offering, The Boca Resort is charging a membership fee of $45,000. Social dues for the membership year of October through September are $6,375 for a family or $6,075 for an individual.

But that doesn’t buy you a free ride, so to speak. From printed material obtained by BocaNewsNow.com:

“Social members may use all facilities of the Premier Club by PAYING daily user fees, where applicable, or may add the Golf Option to their Social Membership. The Club, in its sole discretion, has the right to limit the number of Golf Options accepted during the club year.”

Here are additional fees:

Golf club storage: $410.

Want to access the Waldorf Astoria Spa? Reduced entrance fee is $22.

Locker use: $585 at the Resort Golf Clubhouse, $525 at the Boca Beach Club and $250 at the Main Resort.

Working out will cost you $20 per entry, cabanas run from $200 to $450 a day, and if you want to dock your yacht — ’cause who doesn’t? — you’ll pay between $2.25 and $5 per foot.

Let’s talk golf:

Golf memberships run from $3100 to $7140 and bring with them a guest fee of $107 for 18 holes all the way down to $10 for 9 holes between June and September.

From marketing material:

“Epic events such as the Rock the Block New Year’s Eve party and the themed Lobster Bashes remain as highlights on the social calendar.”
