Stonebridge Country Club traces its history back to land that was originally part of a 400-acre vegetable farm bordering the everglades. The farm was subsequently converted to a racetrack that boarded and trained horses. In 1979, it was transformed into Southern Manor Golf Course. Not long after, a developer had the vision to combine individual estate homes with the natural surroundings of a championship golf and country club.
In 1983, construction began on the site. By 1984, a new Clubhouse was built, as were the first model homes. Unlike many home developments where there is only a single builder, the developer brought in well-known custom home builders who were known for quality construction and innovative architecture. This resulted in a variety of designs from these premier builders.
The 18-hole championship golf course was originally designed by world-renowned golf course architect Karl Litten. In its early years, Stonebridge hosted the LPGA Mazda Classic tour event for two consecutive seasons. In 1998, the Clubhouse was renovated and expanded to 27,000 square feet. At the same time a new Fitness Center was created. In 2009, Stonebridge undertook a $12 million project that included a complete renovation and expansion of the Clubhouse to over 40,000 square feet. It also increased the Fitness Center to 6,000 square feet, adding new locker rooms with massage and spa services, all overlooking an upgraded resort-style pool with outdoor bar and grill patios.
In keeping with its strong heritage of championship quality golf, in 2015 Stonebridge celebrated the opening of its newly renovated golf course. The golf course was designed to preserve the unique layout of the original design by Karl Litten while addressing a continuing trend to make golf more enjoyable for golfers at every level. Designer Kipp Shulties fulfilled these goals, enhancing the playability for all golfers while improving the environmental impact with more natural landscapes and a golf course that requires fewer chemicals and less water to create greater harmony and balance with nature and our surrounding areas.
Today, and throughout its history, Stonebridge Country Club continues to provide a premier country club lifestyle in a highly desirable upscale Boca Raton community.
