The project included the addition of a second floor to expand the facility from 2,500 to 7,300 sq. ft. A “Club Course Café” was added offering smoothies, fresh fruit, artisan sandwiches and other grab-and-go fare, along with a full-service liquor bar with specialty cocktails. Locker rooms were more than doubled in size, to accommodate the addition of infrared saunas.
Sea Pines Country Club (SPCC) in Hilton Head, S.C. recently debuted its $2.55 million fitness center renovation and expansion, while also adding a grab-and-go café, infrared saunas, state-of-the-art equipment and other amenities.
The project includes the addition of a second floor, growing the facility from 2,500 sq. ft. to 7,300 sq. ft. The first floor now offers the latest cardio and strength training equipment, while the second floor features a new multi-purpose room for group classes and gatherings. The locker rooms have also more than doubled in size, to accommodate the addition of infrared saunas, a highly popular post-workout amenity.
The new “Club Course Café” serves up a wide array of healthy fare to enjoy both pre- and post-workout. Offerings include smoothies, fresh fruit and artisan sandwiches crafted by the SPCC culinary team led by Executive Chef Brian Coseo.
The new café also features a full-service liquor bar with specialty cocktails to sip on while taking in the expansive views of the club’s tennis courts and golf driving range. For golfers, this new dining option enables them to place an order with the café by phone on the 9th tee or via golf cart touchscreen.
SPCC’s fitness center renovation and expansion was the result of members placing a greater emphasis on wellness and requesting additional fitness-program offerings. Three new certified instructors have been added to accommodate the expansive group fitness lineup, including yoga, Pilates, spin, full-body strength training, TRX, water aerobics and more. Physical and massage therapy also round out the club’s wellness enhancements.
“We always strive to enhance the member experience and add value to their lifestyle pursuits,” says Robbie Ames, Sea Pines’ GM/COO. “The treatment rooms and infrared saunas help rehabilitate injured members. New locker rooms are more convenient for pool goers, tennis players, fitness enthusiasts and golfers, and the café will offer healthy food options that everyone will love.”
In 2017, Sea Pines completed a $2.7 million refresh of its clubhouse—including the creation of an entirely new Blue Heron Pub and Grille, modernizing its 24-meter outdoor pool, existing saline indoor pool and building a brand-new children’s splash pool.
“Sea Pines Country Club was awarded an 88 percent on America’s Healthiest Club’s Health Report, making us one of the country’s healthiest private clubs,” continues Ames. “Wellness is an integral part of our lifestyle offerings, and we’re thrilled to begin this final health-focused renovation.”
Sea Pines CC also earned Distinguished Club status in 2018.
