BOCA RATON, Fla., April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A $15 million club construction improvement plan commences at St. Andrews Country Club with the redesign of multiple areas including the clubhouse, two restaurants, main entry features and landscaping, and the recreation and aquatic center. The construction improvement plan is expected to take three phases of development with a target completion date of November 2014. A video of the club construction improvement plan is available at www.standrewscc.com.
Phase I of the construction improvement plan encompasses the clubhouse front entry landscaping and lighting, Olde Course bunkers, the men's card room and both men's and ladies' locker rooms and will start this summer. Phase II will begin in April 2013 and includes the recreation and aquatic center and extensive clubhouse enhancements and updates to the dining and lounge areas. Phase III will begin June 2014 with functional and practical improvements to Lakeside, a free-standing dining and entertainment facility.
Michael Goldman, President, St. Andrews Country Club Board of Governors stated, "We are pleased that the members and Board of Governors are fully committed to the new strategic direction the club is taking over the next few years. The end result will be to attract younger members to the community and the club strategic improvement plan is a major step forward in accomplishing this goal."
When asked about the financing of the plan, Goldman responded, "By taking advantage of today's low interest rates, St. Andrews Country Club members were able to finance the $15 million project with no increase in fees and no additional assessment. It is important that we continue to improve the club and facilities while being mindful of current economic conditions and the importance of not placing additional monetary burdens on the membership."
Many prospective members seeking real estate in private residential communities are attracted to those clubs offering great upgraded facilities, reputable service and family-oriented amenities. The 3-year strategic improvement plan provides a roadmap for the club and facility upgrades, replacements or expansion that meets the needs of current and future members.
"The most important enhancements from the construction improvement plan are to the recreation and dining areas that will encourage and promote spaces for families of all ages to enjoy," added Craig D. Martin C.C.M., St. Andrews Country Club Chief Operating Officer and General Manager. "St. Andrews Country Club has been the leader in the Boca Raton market for setting the benchmark on standards of excellence. 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."
Over the past four years, the private country club has embarked on a project by project improvement plan including a new roof, new greens on the Olde Course, reclaimed water irrigation system and most recently a new air conditioning system.
