The Fort Myers, Fla., property’s Heron course will close in June for updates to nine putting greens, including collars and green surrounds. The clubhouse will see the addition of a new indoor/outdoor covered patio, a banquet room, and fitness center with spa treatment rooms.
WCI Communities has begun renovations to the 27-hole championship golf course and Golf Clubhouse at Pelican Preserve in Fort Myers, Fla.
The Heron course is scheduled to close in June for a complete renovation of its nine putting greens, including collars and green surrounds. The Egret and Ibis courses will be subject to brief, scheduled closures for regular summer maintenance.
Members and players returning in the fall will find Pelican Preserve’s Chip Powell-designed course ready for a new season and a newly renovated Golf Clubhouse.
Renovations to the 24,485-sq. ft. clubhouse will include a new indoor/outdoor covered patio for alfresco dining on the lower level. Enclosing the patio off the second level will double seating in the full-service, members-only dining room. Pelican Preserve’s Golf Clubhouse amenities also include a banquet room and a state-of-the-art fitness center with spa treatment rooms.
“With our summer renovations, our goal is to provide our members improved playability and a great casual yet contemporary after-golf experience,” said General Manager Joe Smith.
Pelican Preserve’s 70,000-sq. ft. Town Center, Plaza del Sol, offers indoor fitness and swimming, to arts and crafts studios and a 99-seat theater. Dining options include the casually elegant Destinations restaurant and Flip Flops, the new poolside bar. Outdoor amenities include a resort-style pool, a new lap pool, tennis, softball and pickleball.
