No matter the business, you must evolve to meet the changing needs of customers. No one knows this better than Quail Creek Country Club, where a program of renewal is currently underway. With facility buildouts and renovations in progress, the Club is committed to elevating the country club lifestyle for its membership.
A renewed golfing experience
Quail Creek Country Club is a full-service country club, combining 36 holes of championship golf with all the privileges of the private club lifestyle. Built in 1981, the Club’s Creek and Quail Courses were designed by Arthur Hills. Throughout the past 32 years of operation, the golf courses experienced no major changes. In May 2013, the membership agreed that it was time to renovate the courses. Work began immediately on the Creek Course. The project included:
• A completely updated irrigation system;
• TifEagle Bermuda grass for greens;
• An increase in playable, native areas throughout the Course that reduce the amount of water, fertilizer and maintenance required;
• Greens restored to their original sizes; and
• Bunkers restored to their original sizes.
Arthur Hills, who participated extensively in the renovation, praised the project:
“…To summarize, the results are what we are seeking. I’m confident that the members will be pleased and that potential new members will like what they see.”
The club’s Quail Course will enjoy a similar transformation beginning in April, with all 18 holes scheduled for completion by November 1, 2014.
While the club’s 53,000 square foot clubhouse features both formal and casual dining experiences, Quail Creek Country Club has redefined “country club casual” with a renovation and expansion of its Greenside Grille and Bar. The innovative design features indoor/outdoor dining with a 12-foot fire pit, peninsula bar and plenty of casual seating for groups of any size to lounge and linger. Members and their guests now enjoy a fresh menu, a new selection of draft beers and the club’s trademark, exceptional service in the new open-air setting.
A redefined approach to sports and fitness
Members want more than golf these days. They want robust club offerings that support an active lifestyle. Quail Creek Country Club is heeding this call and creating a world-class fitness, wellness and spa center. The renovation, beginning in late April, will result in a multi-level complex that offers the activities and services today’s members desire. From a luxurious massage in a tranquil setting to a spin class overlooking the club’s beautiful greens and waterfall, members will be treated to top fitness technologies, top professionals and a modern approach to wellness. The club’s sports offerings also now include bocce, with the opening in January of a new court complex where members enjoy open and league play.
Quail Creek Country Club’s members know what an exceptional club experience should be. These successful, friendly people come from neighborhoods throughout Southwest Florida to relax, have fun and socialize. Now, more than ever, their re-energized Quail Creek Country Club is everything a country club should be.
