Members of the Boca Raton, Fla., property voted in favor of building a two-story fitness center and spa situated above a first-level golf cart storage site. The remodel includes a new porte cochere, main lobby, meeting rooms, offices, and member activity areas, with work expected to take place over three years.
The membership of Boca Woods Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla., has approved a major facilities enhancement project, with 82% voting in favor of the $14.5 million plan.
The program includes new construction, along with significant renovation and repurposing of existing clubhouse space. Central to the project is a ground-up, two-story fitness center and spa, which will be situated above a first level golf cart storage site.
“This makes maximum use of our valuable real estate, enabling us to double the size of our existing fitness center to approximately 12,000 sq. ft., without compromising any of our other outstanding assets, such as tennis courts, golf practice area, and beautiful landscaping,” said General Manager David Gourlay, CCM, CCE, CAM.
The conceptual plan was created by board leaders and a planning committee. Proposals are being accepted as the club seeks to identify an architect who will take the Boca Woods vision to specific design and implementation. The entire renovation is expected to take three years, during which all club services and activities will remain ongoing.
The clubhouse remodel includes a new porte cochere, main lobby, connecting corridors, restrooms, meeting rooms, executive offices, and multi-use member activity areas.
“These brick-and-mortar improvements will bring our facilities up to the level of our club’s two magnificent, 18-hole golf courses and eight championship tennis courts,” said Gourlay.
