Stonebridge is Special
Amid the many luxury gated communities throughout Boca Raton and Palm Beach County,
this boutique Club is set apart, a rare diamond in a field of jewels. With most of the
advantages of the larger communities and none of the disadvantages of the smaller ones, it
pleases the discriminating and satisfies the discerning.
Stonebridge is Serene
Lush landscaping and a sprawling golf course layout give Stonebridge residents unmatched
views and the sense of living in a natural environment. With our West Boca location, we have
less traffic and congestion, yet downtown excitement is only minutes away.
Stonebridge is Social
A full schedule of social activities can keep members busy, day and night, throughout the
year. New members are quickly welcomed into sporting and gaming, with no long waits for a
tee time, tennis court or fitness equipment.
Stonebridge is Satisfying
Anything anyone could ever want in a country club can be found here. Members can order
special meals at the Club or pick-up to enjoy at home. Opportunities to socialize include
cards, games, rooting for sporting events, cultural activities, gourmet dinners, lively dancing,
top-level entertainment, and a wide variety of special events year-round. And, of course,
Stonebridge is home to a challenging, newly redesigned golf course.
Stonebridge is Secure
Professional guards monitor the entrance and circulate throughout the community 24 hours
a day. Every home is protected by a security alarm system with central monitoring. The
entrance, Clubhouse and grounds are protected by security cameras and alarms, and the
security vehicle is equipped with emergency medical equipment. A Palm Beach sheriff’s
headquarters is located adjacent to the property.
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
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.
