The final phase of a $25 million club improvement plan is underway at St. Andrews Country Club and includes $4 million in enhancements and floor plan redesign of the free standing, Tennis and Fitness Center. Construction is expected to be completed November 2018.
As one of America’s Top 10 Healthiest Club’s for four years running, the Tennis and Fitness Center is an essential facility to the active membership at St. Andrews Country Club. Originally built in 2007, the 20,000 sq. ft. building will receive a brand new design to allow for improved efficiencies to better handle the high volume it regularly receives and an update to the décor and furnishings.
The new Tennis and Fitness Center includes increased square footage of the Pilates® studio, a brand new mind-body studio and a virtual reality spin room. The men’s and ladies’ locker rooms will be expanded and fully equipped with updated showers, steam room and sauna. Also being added is 770 sq. ft. on the gym floor to accommodate additional cardio equipment and stretching tables. A brand new, expansive tennis shop, and professional offices are part of many practical improvements to the building. A brand new, spacious tennis lounge and two brand new pickle ball courts will further expand the tennis facility.
“Our Tennis Program has certainly flourished over the past 16 years,” said Aaron Krickstein Director of Tennis and former World #6. “We have numerous men’s and women’s leagues that range from just playing for fun to fairly competitive. Our Aaron Krickstein Junior Tennis Academy has grown rapidly within the last few years with 20-30 active Junior Tennis players who participate in our program. The new tennis facilities redesign reinforces our commitment to the tennis program at St. Andrews. ” concluded Krickstein.
The Tennis program at St. Andrews Country Club attracts a younger demographic seeking quality tennis amenities and facilities. St. Andrews Country Club offers 14 clay tennis courts, five of which include lighting convenient for members who prefer to play in the evenings. Center Court’s stadium seating is the perfect venue for Aaron Krickstein’s Annual Tennis Exhibition, complimentary for all members.
“Prospective members seeking real estate in private residential communities are attracted to clubs offering upgraded facilities, reputable service and family-oriented amenities,” said Steve Irwin, President, St. Andrews CC Board of Governors. “Our 3-year club improvement plan provides a roadmap for the club and facility upgrades, replacements and expansions that meets the needs of current and future members.”
Phase I of the three phase $25 Million Club Improvement Plan was completed in December of 2016 and included the renovation and redesign of the 18-hole Olde course and practice facilities by golf course designer, Tom Fazio II, along with substantial improvements to the ballroom and ladies’ card room. Also recently added was a multi-use sports field and a full-size basketball court to accommodate our young members.
Phase II involved the construction of a brand new, 11,000 sq. ft. world-class spa expected to open in July 2018. Some of the new features include a salt room, steam room and sauna, more massage and treatment rooms, manicure and pedicure stations, and a new private make-up and hair area for special events. Private men’s and ladies’ facilities feature Jacuzzis, a lounge area and Zen garden.
“We are excited to embark on this next and final phase of our club improvement plan,” added Craig D. Martin C.C.M., COO/GM. “Our goal is to protect our members’ real estate interests and investments while attracting new members who appreciate the highest quality of facilities and service. St. Andrews continues to be a leader in the south Florida market for setting benchmarks on standards of excellence and upgraded facilities,” Martin concluded.
