Gleneagles Country Club in Delray Beach, Fla., is celebrating the completion of a 16,000-sq. ft. $10 million new construction Healthy Lifestyle Center and resort-style pool.
The ribbon cutting and opening celebration took place on March 23 with more than 500 members in attendance.
The Healthy Lifestyle Center includes a resort-style outdoor pool and a two-story, 16,000-sq. ft. fitness center that connects with the existing clubhouse. The resort-style outdoor pool features an expansive pool deck for outdoor dining and socialization in addition to a hot tub and children’s wading pool. The Healthy Lifestyle Center includes cardio and strength training equipment; a large group exercise room; spa facility with three treatment rooms and two quiet relaxation rooms; physical therapy area; men’s and ladies’ locker rooms and a multi-purpose room to accommodate fitness and social events.
The project also involved modifying the club’s existing Grille Room and Glen Bar to fit the new pool deck footprint.
“The opening of the Healthy Lifestyle Center is a great addition to the many state of the art facilities that makes Gleneagles stand out,” said General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Kraig Spina. “It has been the pinnacle of a strategic capital improvement plan that began in 2008 and included the $6 million Legends Course renovation in 2011, $10 million clubhouse renovation in 2014 and a $3 million Atlantic Avenue main entrance and security guard house project in 2015.”
Since 2014, the Board of Governors, staff and select committees have been working with the membership through the use of focus groups, surveys, round tables and town hall meetings to address the membership needs for an update to our club with an emphasis on our Fitness Center, Pool, and creating a healthy lifestyle community.
In addition to the new Healthy Lifestyle Center amenities and programs, the golf, tennis, and pickleball activities and programs remain important and desirable to new members, with 100% of all new members selecting a membership package with either a golf or tennis offering, or both.
