The Fort Myers, Fla., property’s 40,000-sq. ft. clubhouse will feature a contemporary design throughout, with an upgraded bar and grille, expanded indoor and outdoor dining area, state-of-the-art kitchen, additional meeting rooms, fitness center, and aerobics studio.
The Forest Country Club in Fort Myers, Fla., has announced groundbreaking on the $7.9 million clubhouse renovation and expansion project which will coincide with the club’s 40th anniversary.
The newly designed 40,000-sq. ft. clubhouse will feature a transitional, contemporary design throughout, with an upgraded bar and grille, expanded indoor and outdoor dining area equipped with resort style seating and firepits for members’ enjoyment. The project will also include a new state-of-the-art kitchen, fitness center, and aerobics studio with expanded views of the golf course, and additional meeting rooms.
The project follows a complete renovation of the club’s two championship golf courses. The renovation is slated for completion in December 2018.
“The renovation plan demonstrates our members’ dedication to providing an exceptional private club experience which is considered among the best in Southwest Florida,” General Manager Matt Gaudet said. “The features of the new clubhouse uphold the rich legacy and tradition of our club, while continuing to be the first choice for those seeking 36 holes and an all-inclusive club lifestyle in our area.”
The club features two 18-hole championship courses, The Bear Course and the recently renovated Bobcat Course, as well as six Hydro tennis courts and four pickleball courts.
The club has partnered with architectural firm Humphrey Rosal Architects out of Naples, Fla., and D. Garrett Construction Inc. will provide construction management services for the project.
