The renovation focused on enhancing the outdoor spaces of the Flagstaff, Ariz., property’s two clubhouses, and modernized dining rooms, added a new children’s center, expanded the family recreation areas, upgraded the fitness center, and updated the locker room area.
Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz., recently completed a $6.75 million renovation to both its clubhouses, which are adjacent to the property’s Tom Weiskopf-designed golf courses, the Phoenix-based AZ Big Media reported.
“Our members trusted us with a nearly $7 million investment in the future of our community,” said General Manager Bill Griffon. “These renovations and the expansion of our facilities provide for Forest Highlands remaining one of the top private golf communities, not only in Arizona but in the United States.”
The renovations significantly enhanced the outdoor spaces of the clubhouses to take advantage of the dramatic views, Media reported.
“The renovation and expansion of Forest Highlands’ Clubhouses offered a great opportunity not only to update the facilities, but to continue to evolve the community’s lifestyle to be enjoyed not only for golf, but for life aprés golf,” said John Sather, Senior Partner at Swaback Partners, which designed the project. “The completed collection evolved the Meadow and Canyon Clubhouses into true community gathering places for every member of the Forest Highlands community.”
The design focused on creating more outdoor experiences with expanded dining and lounge locations on the wraparound decks. The dining rooms were also enhanced and modernized with a new luxury look and feel. A new children’s center was added to the clubhouse, and the family recreation areas were expanded with upgraded amenities added for adults and children to enjoy, Media reported.
More traditional club offerings were also upgraded including new fitness equipment, massage rooms, steam rooms, exercise room, an updated locker area and a new flex space exercise room, Media reported.
“We are so pleased with our latest renovations,” said member Mary Robinson. “Our membership came together to identify what it takes to keep Forest Highlands current in appealing to golfers, non-golfers, retirees, families and kids. This promotes a strong and balanced community interested in its quality of life and protection of property values.”
Forest Highlands Golf Club has continued to see strong sales in the community. Sales in 2016 have hit an all-time high with nearly $23 million sold as of mid-August. “We’ve had a great 2016 thus far,” said Griffon. “Buyers come here and see how homeowners and members enjoy world-class golf, tennis, kid’s programming, pools, cycling and so much more at Forest Highlands. It’s more than just a home, it’s a way of life.”
