Season is here, Members are back and the excitement continues as all eyes are on the Club renovation project. The new resort style pool is progressing nicely and now you can really see how enormous it will be and imagine yourself having a tropical drink at the pool bar with friends! What a great addition to the Club… beach entry, water features, dedicated lap lanes, 16-seat outdoor bar with TV’s offering specialty beverages and poolside entertainment for Club Members.
A variety of water aerobics classes will also be provided for Members as part of the Club’s new fitness program. All categories of memberships (except Tennis Only) can participate in the water aerobics and fitness classes. Once the Fitness Center is completed, a large array of fitness classes will be offered in addition to the current fitness classes. The Fitness Center will be built complete with separate spinning and aerobics rooms, as well as, new cardio, weight and TRX training equipment.
After all that exercise, it will be time to enjoy one of Chef Dan’s specialty pizzas made in his new wood burning oven. Chef Dan has perfected his dough recipe and combined it with the freshest ingredients from Italy and toppings for every palette. Everyone is looking forward to eating the best pizza around!
Moving upwards, windows have been installed, drywall is up and members are anxious to see the dining room completed so they can start enjoying all that it has to offer.
Another first class feature will be a 1,600 bottle glass wine cellar in the lobby area and a private wine room for dining and entertaining. Club amenities, tennis, pickleball, bocce, fitness center and pool including dining in the Grille Room remain open for Member enjoyment during the renovations.
