Woodfield Country Club Announces Major Renovations

Woodfield Country Club, one of the area’s premier residential communities with world-class resort amenities, has announced a $23.75 million renovation plan that will begin in 2015 and continue for approximately two-three years.

Architectural plans and timetables will be finalized this year with construction to begin in early 2015.

“We have been successful in bringing an attractive and affordable plan to the membership that will  enhance the resort-style experience,” said Eben Molloy, General Manager of Woodfield Country Club. “Maintaining our position as the premier family country club in the fiercely competitive local marketplace involves continually investing in our club and evolving to meet the needs of current and future members.”

Woodfield’s home sales have increased annually in recent years, a trend indicating that the community is meeting the needs of home buyers seeking year-round, family-oriented lifestyles, according to Molloy.

“Our ability to attract families and those seeking a vibrant lifestyle sets us apart from many other country club communities,” added Molloy. “The planned improvements are the direct result of input from our members. There is a combination of renovations that appeal to children as well as adults.

“This diversity is what has established Woodfield as the premier family country club in Boca Raton.”

The Long Range Plan was developed in 2011 after surveying members and ranking projects by importance. It was approved by the members in December 2013.

“Our goal was to get support from our members,” said Molloy. “We accomplished this by asking for their input and incorporating their suggestions into the plan. As a result, our members understand the financial aspects as well as the timeframes for this ambitious plan that will enhance the country club experience at Woodfield.”

The plan involves new and expanded card rooms, an interior design refresh in the main clubhouse and dining areas, along with an overhaul of the fitness, aquatics, poolside dining and child care areas. A major addition is a new building and play area for the exclusive use of younger members.

“So many of our members have children,” said Molloy. “We are improving an already outstanding and safe amenity for young children and teenagers.”

The outdoor playground and kids pools with such interactive features as splash pad and aquatic playground, will be centrally located in one area next to the new Kids Korner building. The Kids Korner building will include a child care area for younger children as well as a dedicated teen area with pool tables, video games, air hockey, and much more.

Other significant improvements include the addition of a lap pool, a zero entry resort-like swimming pool, and new a poolside dining venue. The renovation will also feature an expanded workout facility and larger high end salon. Additionally, the golf practice area will receive improvements such as an enhanced practice area and teaching facilities.

“Woodfield is a young, vibrant community,” added Molloy, “and it’s refreshing and encouraging to see that the members support a well-planned future for their club and are enthusiastic about re-investing in their community.”
