-- Boca Raton’s Broken Sound Club Announces $13.2 Million Expansion; Investment Will Complete Golf and Country Club’s Transformation
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Broken Sound Club will launch a $13.2 million expansion this spring, adding active lifestyle facilities that complete the transformation of the 100,000-square-
foot country club, according to General Manager John Crean, CCM,CEE. The project comes on the heels of a $10.5 million first phase expansion and renovation program last summer at Broken Sound Club, a Five-star Platinum Club of America.
“Broken Sound Club has made a tradition of looking to the future. Our members’ investment in their Club, totaling nearly $24 million over three years, is an example of that commitment,”
said Crean. Broken Sound Club has engaged Peacock + Lewis to design the new facilities and the Weitz Company as general contractor. Work is slated to begin in May, with completion projected in November 2012.
Phase II will create a complete Wellness Center and Spa Café, expanding the existing Fitness Center and Spa with additional aerobics rooms, a spinning room with an interactive picture wall, and a teen lounge and cyber café. The Club’s Aquatic Center will double in size, taking on a tropical feel and adding water features, bridges, a water park-style children’s pool and environmentally-
friendly geothermal pool heating. A new Bistro Grill will be added with a contemporary open kitchen design and indoor/outdoor seating for over 150.
In line with Broken Sound Club’s leadership in green initiatives, the new facilities are being designed to meet LEED building criteria. Broken Sound Club, which employs more than 350 people, is only the second golf facility in the U.S. to be GEO Certified™ — the sustainability assurance of the international non-profit Golf Environment Organization (GEO). The Old Course at Broken Sound is host to the PGA Champions Tour Allianz Championship, which kicks off February 6, 2012 as one of America’s “greenest”
Overall, Broken Sound Club, home to 1600 families, spans 1,000 acres and includes two championship golf courses, a 23-court tennis center, and 27 neighborhoods ranging from estate homes to villas and condominiums.
