The Forest Country Club Completes Clubhouse Makeover

Online PR News – 07-March-2013 – Fort Myers, FL – (Fort Myers, FLA –March 5, 2013) - The clubhouse at the Forest Country Club in South Fort Myers received a makeover recently. Completed just in time for the 2013 season, the renovation of the 45,000-sqare-foot building features updated furnishings with a fresh, coastal look. Spaces have also been improved for functional flexibility and energy-efficiency.

“Our clubhouse wasn’t in need of a total overhaul, but the architectural tweaks and updated furnishings have made a world of difference.” said Scott Bertrand, General Manager of the Forest Country Club. “We can now seat up to 300 in our main dining room and our pre-function area has been opened up to accommodate larger groups of members and guests for weddings, parties and meetings.”

Lauren McGarvey of Noller Design Group oversaw the project, working with a core group of members including design committee chair Lorraine Guile. “We freshened up the spaces with light and bright colors including carpet, paint, fabric and furniture,” said Guile. “Brighter, energy-efficient LED lighting has given the club an uplifting feel.”

Better views of the surrounding golf courses are reflected in the freshened décor. While the courses have long been the club’s gems, the renovation of the interior has resulted in improved experience with the outdoors, according to Guile.

“The clubhouse makeover is just part of our ongoing effort to update and enhance the amenities at our club based on the feedback from our members,” said Bertand. “We recently added a 1,500 square foot state-of-the-art fitness center and renovated our eighteen-hole Bear course .“

Built in 1979, the Forest Country Club continues to impress players with the natural beauty of wooded areas and sparkling lakes. The Forest is member-owned and home to two championship eighteen-hole golf courses, the Bobcat and the Bear, six Har-Tru tennis courts, and a 1,500 square foot state-of-the art fitness center. The 45,000 square foot clubhouse offers three venues for creative dining, parties and activities for a membership that resides both inside and outside the community gates. The clubhouse is also available for private parties, weddings and corporate events. The Forest is conveniently located in South Fort Myers and a short drive to the international airport, shopping and the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel.
