BONITA SPRINGS — The Vasari Country Club in Bonita Springs has kicked off a $6.1 million renovation and expansion project.
Called the Renaissance Project, it will consist of expansive additions to the upper and lower levels of the clubhouse, including an outdoor covered dining area, according to a statement. It’s the first clubhouse renovation since the club’s grand opening in 2004, the release adds. Bonita Springs-based Gates Construction is overseeing the project.
The club’s upstairs Grill & Bar Room will be expanded to about 2,500 square feet, which will include 43 more seats and a large oval bar with multiple TVs. About 1,000 square feet will be added to the upstairs kitchen, which will enable the staff to elevate the member experience during lunch and dinner services, the release states.
The new focal point for the club’s lower level will be the creation of the Piazza. The Piazza will include a 3,750-square-foot kitchen, covered outdoor bar and dining with resort-style space for casual eating. To create the Piazza, the Golf Shop will be relocated to a new 1,800-square-foot building in front of the existing fitness center, the release states.
A groundbreaking was scheduled for March 3. Renovations are expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
