Fort Lauderdale Country Club Renovations Nearly Complete
After several months of work, Fort Lauderdale Country Club is nearing completion of the first phase of a three-phase beautification project. Phase 1, which began in May and will end in November in time for South Florida’s busy winter season, has undergone a complete renovation of the practice facilities and South Course.
South has been re-turfed with Tiffeagle grass on the greens and its practice green. Paspalum, a new breed of grass, was planted on the range tees and fairway. These grasses improve the golf experience by adding speed, consistency and overall playability. The new grass also reacts well to all weather conditions and is disease-resistant.
Commencing next spring is Phase 2 of the project, which will focus on the clubhouse. Refurbishments include expanding the outdoor dining areas and general enhancements to the main dining room. In the third and final phase of renovations, the North Course will undergo major upgrades to the bunkers, tees and greens.
Established in 1926, the Fort Lauderdale Country Club is a private equity club located in the heart of Broward County. It is one of the county’s few private clubs with two championship 18-hole golf courses. Superior drainage, considerable variety and friendly members are among the club's outstanding features. Membership categories range from Social to Equity memberships; an Executive Program is designed for adults 40 and younger.
To coincide with the completion of Phase I, the Fort Lauderdale Country Club has decided to offer a special seasonal membership program to attract winter residents to the club. For a fraction of the cost, seasonal members are invited to join FLCC for six months and enjoy amenities normally offered only to year-round members. In addition to the club’s two 18-hole golf courses and its fine dining, seasonal members can serve on committees, participate in the seasonal golf cart program and add significant others to their membership.
As downtown Fort Lauderdale experiences its own renaissance, the Fort Lauderdale Country Club recognizes its need to change alongside that growth. “Our courses were already in terrific condition, but we chose to make this investment to offer our membership an even better place to play golf. These improvements will increase the caliber of golf at FLCC,” said general manager Michael O’Brien. “We’re excited for the completion of this project.”
