By Tom Bedell Some golfers love pounding out balls on the driving range. Others liken it to donkeywork, and therefore don’t practice as much as they should if they really hope to improve their games. Boca West Country Club has handily removed the obstacle of drudgery by installing Inrange radar technology at its south driving range. Members can now play target games with the new system, or measure their golf swing mechanics through a matching phone app. With its four championship golf courses, an award-winning USTA tennis facility, a luxurious spa and fitness facility and seven restaurants, all spread out on 1,400 acres of tropical landscaping, Boca West has received a 5-Star Private Club ranking by Platinum Clubs of America every year since 1997. It was hardly lacking for amenities before installing the new radar system in December, a first for a private club in the country. “As the first country club to offer this radar technology, we are further enhancing our reputation as a world-class destination for golfers of all skill levels and abilities,” says Matthew Linderman, president, chief operating officer and general manager of Boca West. In other words, who can resist a new toy, especially one as dazzling as the Inrange? “I was super excited to try it,” says member Ellen Shapiro, who has a 10.5 handicap—in short, a player. “The first thing I did was to take my whole bag and just start hitting balls to see if I was truly carrying them as far as I thought I was. It was fascinating.” With the app, players can see their shot tracing, just like watching the pros on televised tournaments. “The target practice is mind-blowing, too,” Shapiro says. “I tried practicing my pitching wedge—one of my issues—and I think at first I missed 15 to 20 in a row. For practice, the bottom line is it’s very fun, very valuable and a very cool thing they’ve offered here.”

Tucked away from the bar and club scene of Fort Lauderdale Beach sits a gem of a Mediterranean restaurant still capable of offering scenic ocean views to produce the ideal setting for a luxurious waterfront dining experience. Morèa's indoor dining room with 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows ensures that all 275 seats and the spacious bar/lounge deliver something of a Greek island quality (the giant murals of Greek goddesses add to the effect). The gorgeous waterfront patio and bar anchored by a fire pit perfectly complements this more serene stretch of the beach, while Morèa's small plate offerings, wood-grilled meats and seafood, handcrafted cocktails and fine-wine selection encompass the restaurant's prime attraction. The company behind Moréa, the North Carolina-based LM Restaurants, is run by Lou Moshakos, his wife, Joy, and their daughter, Amber. It's not a coincidence that the family-led restaurant has perfected communal dining by creating a group-friendly flow and setting for diners to come together to share the experience as one. Moréa's extensive selection of shared plates allow couples, families or business executives to enjoy an eclectic mix of Mediterranean delights. The exquisite menu is divided into five categories: Share, From the Land, From the Sea, From the Garden and Flatbreads. Our waiter's first recommendation was the bacon-wrapped dates with piquillo sauce and Marcona almonds. It's easy to see why the dish has become a go-to for patrons since the restaurant opened in January. Another sharable recommendation is the crowd-pleasing burrata with grilled country bread, balsamic vinegar, heirloom tomatoes, prosciutto crisps, pesto and arugula. After the appetizers awakened our senses and teased our appetite, we segued to the From the Land menu to taste the grilled rack of lamb with salmoriglio (a southern Italian condiment composed of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and herbs) and Peruvian chili sauce, which was truly the evening’s highlight. The lamb was juicy and seasoned to perfection. Another highly recommended dish featured in the From the Sea genre is the clams linguine, with middleneck clams, white wine, garlic and butter. The pasta and clam mix may be an Italian staple, but Moréa's version surpasses expectations because of its especially bright, fresh sauce.
