Ed Rice, President, St. Andrews CC Board of Governors stated, "We are pleased with the positive feedback from our members after completing Phases I and II and know Phase III will be equally impressive. When beginning this project, the goal was to attract younger members to the community and club which is exactly what we have been seeing these past few years."

Phase II included a complete redesign of the clubhouse, Gallery restaurant and lounge/bar, main entry features, landscaping, recreation and aquatic center and addition of two new dining venues.
