WGI provided planning, landscape architecture, traffic engineering, and representation services for Pulte Group at the Boca Lago Country Club to convert a portion of an inactive golf course to residential use. WGI processed a Development Order Amendment to reconfigure the master plan and add 130 multi-family units. Under this application, the 36-hole golf course was reduced to a 27-hole executive course and a portion of the former golf course was converted to residential use for the Boca Flores development. Boca Flores is a 55+ active adult community featuring walking trails, a clubhouse, pool, and access to Boca Lago County Club golf and tennis amenities. The design also features a 2.32-acre conservation area, one of over twenty preservation areas which were maintained throughout the larger community.
In addition, 24 acres of the former golf course were set aside to create a passive park adjacent to Boca Flores. Designed by WGI for the enjoyment of all club residents, this park retrofits two holes of the abandoned golf course into a community amenity with trails, native vegetation, and sitting areas. The golf club is committed to environmentally friendly maintenance practices and has been a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program since 1993.
