Forest Country Club approves plans for $7.9 million clubhouse renovation

Construction plans have been approved at The Forest Country Club for an upcoming $7.9 million renovation and expansion of the main clubhouse. The clubhouse currently provides members with three dining areas including a banquet facility, in addition to a full golf pro shop, fitness center and bocce courts with expansive views of the two championship golf courses.

The renovation project was approved by club members and its board of directors. The club has also selected architectural firm, Humphrey Rosal Architects out of Naples. Humphrey Rosal’s portfolio includes many high-profile clubhouse renovations.

In addition to renovating the main club facility, the project will expand the current clubhouse by 6,000 square feet to include resort-style outdoor dining areas and aerobics/wellness room adjacent to the fitness center. The club’s six Har-Tru tennis courts will be resurfaced.

“The renovation plan demonstrates our members’ dedication to providing an exceptional private club experience which is considered among the best in Southwest, Florida,” said Matt Gaudet, general manager. “We want The Forest Country Club to continue to be the first choice for those seeking 36 holes and an all-inclusive club lifestyle in our area.”

The renovation is slated to start April 2018, and be completed by the beginning of 2019.

“Golf play will not be disrupted and the staff is planning fun and unique dining experiences for our members during the renovation period,” added Mr. Gaudet. ¦
