The Estero, Fla. club’s 9,000-sq.-ft. indoor-outdoor Golfside Grill offers a sushi bar, pizza oven and a built-in soup and garden salad buffet, along with locally-brewed Shadow Wood craft beer and an orange hard seltzer on tap. The seven-month project was funded without bank loans or debt and added a 260-seat dining space with a large octangular bar and a second kitchen.
Shadow Wood Country Club in Estero, Fla. has opened its new $5.2 million, 9,000 sq.-ft. indoor-outdoor casual dining venue that features a folding glass door system for all-weather enjoyment of expansive sunset and golf course views.
Designed by country club architect and design firm Peacock + Lewis and constructed by DeAngelis Diamond, the seven-month project added a 260-seat dining space with a large octangular bar and a second kitchen.
Golfside Grill—named through a member contest—offers a sushi bar, pizza oven and a built-in soup and garden salad buffet, along with locally-brewed Shadow Wood craft beer and an orange hard seltzer on tap. A wall of nine 55-inch monitors together form one giant TV screen, in addition to 16 big screen televisions positioned throughout the space.
Enhancing the club’s before- and after-dinner cocktail space, the renovation added two fire pits and lounge seating to the existing five positioned around the clubhouse. Golfside Grill is open daily for lunch, dinner and happy hours.
Shadow Wood Country Club President Rich Celiberti said Golfside Grill was completed on time and was funded without bank loans or debt.
“Our members are excited to return for season and experience this amazing addition to our club amenities,” said Celiberti. “We were also pleased it was completed with no disruption in service to our regular hours of operation this summer.”
“Golfside Grill illustrates Shadow Wood’s continuing commitment to providing the ultimate member experience,” said Shadow Wood General Manager, Brian Bartolec. “Our dedication to keeping ahead of trends and enhancing our amenities makes us one of the most desirable clubs in Southwest Florida.”
Shadow Wood Country Club includes three distinctly different championship golf courses, including Bob Cupp-designed and Rees Jones renovated Shadow Wood North and South, and the Arthur Hills-designed course at Shadow Wood Preserve. Members also have access to a nine-court tennis complex, two bocce courts, a 53,000-sq.-ft. main clubhouse, and a 16,000-sq.-ft. clubhouse at Shadow Wood Preserve.
