Press Release: Grand Opening
The Forest Country Club Celebrates 40 Years with Grand Opening of New Clubhouse
Unveiling the $10 Million Expansion and Remodel Project
FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 14, 2019) – As part of its mission to provide exceptional golf, world-class dining, remarkable fitness and expand its presence in the community, The Forest Country Club celebrates its 40th Anniversary with the grand opening of its newly designed 40,000 square foot clubhouse. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on March 30 at 6 pm in front of the country club main entrance located at 6100 Club Boulevard SW Fort Myers, Fl, 33908.
The 10 million expansion and remodel project, designed by Humphrey Rosal Architects and furnished by Club Design Group, features a transitional, contemporary design with $200,000 in new landscaping throughout the front and back of the clubhouse. The custom-built clubhouse spares no details with an upgraded bar and grille, new state-of-the-art kitchen, expanded indoor and outdoor dining area, and additional meeting rooms for community events.
Upon entering the clubhouse, one's eye is immediately drawn to the new cupola style roof and grand views of the award-winning golf course. The dining room will seat 208 for dinner with a 32-seat rectangular bar. Lunch and dinner service as well as large club events will be held in this room, with the adjacent Member Lounge being used as the dance floor for large parties and weddings. The new open concept will allow conversation and company to flow freely between the dining room and the member’s lounge, located just past the lobby. Members and guests will dine and socialize on resort-style seating on new covered and sun terraces. Firepits add ambiance and a bit of warmth as members take in the beautiful Southwest Florida sunsets.
The renovation also boasts modern guest amenities such as the Hydro Tennis courts, Fitness Center and Wellness Studio featuring advanced workout equipment, dynamic group fitness classes and OnDemand Fitness.
“This has been an incredibly transformative remodel project for our club. We have completely stripped everything down to the studs and started from scratch so every part of this building will be an entirely new experience for our members and their guests,” said Matt Gaudet, General Manager.
