Residents can fill out an anonymous online survey to register their opinions on proposed improvements at the Florida club, which makes all of its facilities open to the public. The village council has approved a master plan for a project that it hopes to start next year and complete by the end of 2017.
Residents in North Palm Beach, Fla. have two more weeks to register their opinions online on the future of the North Palm Beach Country Club, the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post reported.
Demolishing the 50-year-old building that houses the club’s golf shop and Village Tavern restaurant is being considered, the Post reported. Changes to the swimming pool, located adjacent to the building, are also under consideration.
All facilities at the country club, including the golf course, are open to the public.
Officials in the village of North Palm Beach hope to start the project next year and complete it by the end of 2017, the Post reported. The village council has approved a master plan for the project, and plans have been submitted for consideration.
“It’s absolutely necessary we get as broad of a response from the public as possible,” said Robert Gebbia, North Palm Beach’s Mayor.
A cost for the plan for the new building at the country club, located on the west side of U.S. 1, has not been determined, the Post reported. The final cost and schedule will be determined after the survey is completed, Gebbia said.
The village has been making updates to the country club for the last decade, the Post noted. The par-71 Jack Nicklaus Signature course was redesigned and opened to the public for play in the fall of 2006. The course was lengthened to more than 7,000 yards from the back tees as part of the project
In 2009, the village installed clay courts, a new 2,000-sq.-ft. clubhouse, new lighting, irrigation, and landscaping as part of $500,000 in improvements to the tennis center, located on the north side of the country club. The new clubhouse has showers, a small kitchen and a meeting room. The tennis center is also open to the public.
