In addition to turning the old pro shop into a multifunction room called the Sunrise Room, the Estero, Fla. club remodeled the ladies’ card room, locker room and vanities, renovated the men’s card room and grill/lounge, and added a new 3,500-sq. ft. pro shop building.
Members of Shadow Wood Country Club in Estero, Fla. began 2022 with a one-of-a-kind New Year’s celebration on January 9 as a nine-month, $7 million building and design project by AM Design Group was completed.
The most visible pieces of the renovation and addition project consisted of turning the old pro shop into a multifunction room called the Sunrise Room. The other key elements were the remodeling of the lady’s card room, locker room and vanities, a renovation and addition of the men’s card room and grill/lounge, and a completely new 3,500-sq. ft. pro shop building that looks over the expansive practice greens and features unique retail opportunities.
“The membership at Shadow Wood C.C. is ecstatic about our new buildings as well as our redesigned areas,” said Brian Bartolec, General Manager/Chief Operating Officer. “Watching the project unfold into what we had envisioned all along is so rewarding. AM Design Group delivered perfectly on all aspects of the project.”
All furnishings, decorative fixtures and accessories of the project were provided by AM Design Group.
“Our intent was not to design just another club, but to transform the culture of the club by completely updating, not only the appearance of the club, but its functions as well,” said AM Design Group principal architect/owner Adrian Karapici. “The leadership at Shadow Wood has been amazing. By them putting the trust into the design professionals, we were able to really shine at what we do and think creatively.”
AM Design partnered with DeAngelis Diamond of Naples, Fla. as the general contractor for this project.
“We always like to create an ‘A Team’ that acts and works as a family,” Karapici said. “Communicating and working very closely with each other is the only way to complete a successful project, especially in today’s world environment.”
