South Florida Country Club Communities


Life in a South Florida Country Club grants exclusivity, intimacy, and a lush lifestyle found nowhere else.  Most communities are private and often associated with top-tiered golf courses.  Some require sponsorship from a current resident or a specific invitation to join or live in the community.  In addition to HOA or condo association dues, most communities have mandatory country club membership costs.  The combination of these two affords residents an effortless, no-maintenance, carefree way of living, with all-inclusive services and amenities.  While looking through homes for sale throughout South Florida Country Club Communities, find out specifics and details about each neighborhood by scrolling down and clicking on the “Association Information” and “Neighborhood Amenities.”  At Real-ativity, we have all the hard-to-find specifics in one spot.  Questions?  We’ve got answers – contact us today!

Merriam-Webster defines a country club as “a suburban club for social life and recreation.”  Considered an attribute to American elitism, the inspiration for the modern country club came from the English country house, a large estate in the countryside.  Often a country house served as a second residency for affluent families who had had a townhome in the city.  The country club community we know today originated in the late 1800s, as wealth grew in the United States after the Civil War.  The number of country club communities grew alongside city expansion and increased income stemming from the continuation of the industrial revolution.  Into the roaring 20s, country club communities became the epitome of American wealth and the spot for social events.  By the end of the 1930s, the losses from the great depression caused many country clubs to shut down from a lack of membership funding.  From there on, the number of country club communities slowly came back, and today there are thousands throughout the country, many in South Florida.

Filled with condos, villas, and single-family homes, South Florida country club communities exhibit a variety of styles, designs, and architecture.  Here are a few examples of home styles: S-tile roofed Mediterranean-inspired two-story dwellings with enormous fenced outdoor sanctuaries, single-story mid-century homes with a vintage flair, or traditional ranch pool homes.  Some homes carry a seaside air with a Key West, cottage-influenced design, sporting features like a wrap-around balcony, cheery colors, and ornamented shutters.  The architecture diversity in each micro South Florida country club community is astounding, using different materials such as concrete block structures, frames, stucco, and more.  There is a neighborhood to fit every unique taste, style, and design.
