Delaire County Club has been awarded the prestigious 2010 “Excellence in Design” Award by the Delray Beach Site Plan Review and Appearance Board. The community won for the design of its new Fitness and Tennis Center, part of a larger $18 million amenity improvement project at the Club.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment for Delaire,” said Buddy Magod, ex-officio president of Delaire Country Club, who was instrumental in obtaining approval of the community for the new amenities. “Being recognized by the City for the design of our beautiful new facilities is a great honor.”

The seven-member Site Plan Review and Appearance Board, responsible for reviewing applications for new and existing buildings in the City of Delray Beach, as well as signs and landscaping, gives the annual award to building projects that are completed and receive a certificate of occupancy each year.

“The design works quite well with the functionality of the Club, and the materials and colors really work with the Delaire theme,” said Shane Ames, an architect and chairman of the Site Plan Review and Appearance Board. “We liked the unique nature of the design.”

The award-winning Fitness and Tennis Center, which opened in October to rave reviews, includes a 16,000-square-foot Fitness Center, offering the latest in equipment and technology; an all-new Tennis Center, complete with eight Har-Tru courts, an observation deck, a stadium court and Pro Shop; a spectacular resort-style pool; and a children’s playground.

Presently under construction at Delaire is a 43,000-square-foot Clubhouse, slated to open in the fall of 2011. The Mid-Atlantic Traditional style building, which will be a focal point in the community, features a central rotunda, lavish main dining room, cocktail lounge, members grill, golf pro shop, card rooms and an outdoor dining area overlooking the lush golf course. With Old World features, the new clubhouse will have extensive stonework, a slate-style roof, copper accents and “green” design elements throughout.

The community’s entry guardhouse was also given a facelift, with stone walls, and with all-new entry signage and landscaping, plus the addition of stone details on the perimeter wall, the “face” of Delaire has a fresh new look to complement the rest of the club.
