NAPLES — Quail Creek Country Club has completed a two-year, $18.5 million amenity improvements project.
The project at the Naples club includes a new 33,000-square-foot Sports Center & Spa that connects the club’s Blue Zones-certified fitness center and wellness offerings with its sports programs, according to a statement.
“This project presented an opportunity to be truly forward-thinking about how we wanted to create our member experience,” Quail Creek Board President Hedy Whitney says in the statement. “Physically and philosophically connecting our fitness and sports offerings helps increase engagement as members try new activities.”
D. Garrett Construction began work in summer 2018 on the new facility, designed by clubhouse architecture firm Peacock + Lewis. Features include a rotunda with 180-degree views of the driving range and enhanced golf instruction and practice facilities, as well as new tennis and pickleball courts designed and built by Ritzman Courts, the release states.
The new Sports Center & Spa also integrates health-centered socializing, group training and fitness combined with technology — among the most popular new concepts identified in National Club Association’s Winter 2019 issue of Club Trends. By locating fitness and wellness facilities front and center and bringing golf and racquets operations closer together, the club aims to encourage member interaction and access to services from Quail Creek’s team of trainers and personnel.
“Quail Creek’s leading-edge, integrated approach is unique in Southwest Florida,” Quail Creek Director of Membership Ian Coleman says in the release. “By offering our members tailored services for conditioning and skills enhancement, we are elevating our level of professionalism and service as they work to achieve their goals in the gym and on the course or courts.”
A grand celebration event in January will welcome returning club members and showcase both the new Sports Center & Spa and improvements to the 56,000-square-foot clubhouse.
