The final phase of a $25 million improvement plan is underway at St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla., and includes $4 million in enhancements and floor plan redesign of the free-standing Tennis and Fitness Center. Construction is expected to be completed November 2018.
Originally built in 2007, the 20,000 sq. ft. tennis facility will receive a brand new design to allow for improved efficiencies to better handle high volume, and an update to the décor and furnishings.
The new Tennis and Fitness Center includes increased square footage of the Pilates® studio, a brand new mind-body studio and a virtual reality spin room. The men’s and ladies’ locker rooms will be expanded and fully equipped with updated showers, steam room and sauna. Also being added is 770 sq. ft. on the gym floor to accommodate additional cardio equipment and stretching tables.
A brand new, expansive tennis shop, and professional offices are part of many practical improvements to the building. A brand new, spacious tennis lounge and two brand new pickle ball courts will further expand the tennis facility.
St. Andrews Country Club offers 14 clay tennis courts, five of which include lighting convenient for members who prefer to play in the evenings.
Phase I of the three-phase plan was completed in December 2016 and included the renovation and redesign of the 18-hole Olde course and practice facilities by golf course designer, Tom Fazio II, along with substantial improvements to the ballroom and ladies’ card room. Also recently added was a multi-use sports field and a full-size basketball court to accommodate our young members.
Phase II involved the construction of a new 11,000-sq. ft. spa expected to open in July 2018. Some of the new features include a salt room, steam room and sauna, more massage and treatment rooms, manicure and pedicure stations, and a new private make-up and hair area for special events. Private men’s and ladies’ facilities feature Jacuzzis, a lounge area and Zen garden.
“We are excited to embark on this next and final phase of our club improvement plan,” said Craig D. Martin C.C.M., COO/GM. “Our goal is to protect our members’ real estate interests and investments while attracting new members who appreciate the highest quality of facilities and service. St. Andrews continues to be a leader in the south Florida market for setting benchmarks on standards of excellence and upgraded facilities.”
