CCM, Boca Grove Golf & Tennis Club

Moving up the ladder of success has been a seamless journey for Jennifer M. Jolly, CCM, general manager of the Boca Grove Golf & Tennis Club.

She started her career in the club industry at Harbor Ridge Yacht and Country Club in 2002, having previously owned a thriving software company, and continued on to Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart and Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach.

As Jennifer’s experience and relationships grew, she brought her skills—and her designation of certified club manager—one of only 61 female general managers in the country to do so—to Boca Grove Golf & Tennis Club in June 2018 where she is responsible for both the club and the property owners’ association—and the teams that run them.

“I came to the business in a nontraditional way, from a cutthroat tech business,” Jennifer explains. “I found a welcoming and genuinely helpful network in the Club Managers Association of America; any success I’ve had comes from this organization and the colleagues I’ve met through it—they are an amazing network.”

From her passion for the Navy SEALs Fund to her love and adoption of thoroughbred racehorses to her fascination and knowledge of wine as a certified sommelier, Jennifer Jolly lives her well-rounded life to the fullest.

“I’m very lucky at the end of the day,” she acknowledges.
