Clubhouse improvements underway at The Colony Golf & Country Club
June 13, 2016
BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (June 13, 2016) â€“ Members returning to The Colony Golf & Country Club this fall will be greeted by a clubhouse refreshed with a new, stylishly timeless design.
WCI Communities selected Clive Daniel Hospitality of Naples to oversee updates that began this month in The Colonyâ€™s stately 28,000-square-foot clubhouse. In the planning phase, the Clive Daniel Hospitality design team of Beth Kafka and Nancy Woodhouse sought to implement improvements both aesthetic and functional.
â€œThe team studied the clubhouseâ€™s existing architectural details and assessed natural light patterns,â€ said Club Manager Jim Iacovino. â€œTheir thoughtful design will redefine spaces to enhance functionality and optimize views of our beautiful water and greens.â€
Additional updates include employing a lighter color palette balanced by rich, warm wood finishes, along with new furniture, draperies, lighting fixtures and artwork.
Later this summer, plans include updating the lounges at The Sports Club, which features six Har-Tru tennis courts, tennis shop, fitness equipment, aerobics studio, three spa treatment rooms and a 65-foot pool and spa. A new awning, additional seating and a juice bar will create an improved emphasis on hospitality.
Access to areas of the Clubhouse is limited while work is underway, with an estimated completion date scheduled for the beginning of September. The Clubhouse redesign is coordinated with renovations to The Colonyâ€™s Jerry Pate-designed championship golf course that introduces Platinum Paspalum grass on 18 rebuilt greens and three putting and chipping greens. Project plans also include re-grassing surrounds and restoring bunkers to their original size and scope.
Residents of The Colony Golf & Bay Club have access to Pelican Landing amenities, including a 34-acre island beach park, canoe park, tennis courts, fitness center and community center. The Colonyâ€™s concierge program can arrange everything from key-holding and housekeeping services to dry cleaning, domestic and international travel, and at-home massages or yoga instruction.
At The Colony Golf & Bay Club, construction continues on Altaira®, WCIâ€™s tower of 75 Sky HomesSM. WCI also offers luxury penthouse-inspired residences in four-story mid-rise buildings at Cielo in The Colony. Dream Ready Homes available for immediate move-in start from the mid-$700,000s.
