Jan. 9, 2019 – Furthering Broken Sound Club’s mission as a premier, forward-thinking community in South Florida, the 5-Star Platinum Club has unveiled plans for a $30 million transformation of its clubhouse and expansion of member amenities. With more dining options, increased capacity for its growing membership and “a lot more sizzle” planned for the “club destination of choice,” the enhanced vibrancy and amenities encourage members to “live young” through every stage of their lives. The clubhouse reimagination is designed by the nationally acclaimed architecture and interior design firm, Peacock + Lewis, with anticipated completion by late 2020.
According to BSC Chief Operating Officer/General Manager John Crean, the new clubhouse plans reflect and enhance the distinctive Broken Sound Club member experience of “enjoying a life well lived and a game well played.” Set amidst 27 intimate residential villages and one of BSC’s two award-winning Audubon Sanctuary Certified golf courses – this transformation offers a varied choice of dining, entertainment and shopping amenities, expanded card rooms, breathtaking views and a contemporary look and feel.
President of the BSC Board of Governors Eric Bershad added that “With this exciting reimagination coupled with our special ‘home builders’ program for prospective buyers and flexible membership plans, it is an ideal time to call Broken Sound Club ‘home’.”
While celebrating its tradition of Mizner-inspired architecture, the new clubhouse design plans boast sophistication ‘inside and out.’ With newly designed furniture and finishes, the new amenities will elicit an exciting and fresh vibe. More casual, alfresco and fine dining options with varied menus and flexible hours and expansion of member amenities will highlight changes.
AN EXCITING, ELEGANT ARRIVAL
The lushly landscaped arrival drive will lead to a grand motor court with a sculptural fountain. A glass-covered porte-cochere will provide a large, covered gathering space for drop off and pick up with the remodeled clubhouse as a dramatic backdrop. A sky-lit loggia leads to a new two-story arrival pavilion for meeting and greeting members, family and friends. Surrounded by glass walls with views to the surrounding gardens, fountains and signature palms, the area will feature elegant soft seating.
The remodeled entry to the clubhouse will provide an unobstructed vista down a main gallery to the landscaped backyard patio. The gallery includes a new concierge station and access to dining venues and the women’s card room. Soft seating grouping provides additional gathering areas before entering the new food and beverage venues.
MEMBERS CHOICE DINING:
INDOOR, ALFRESCO, ROOFTOP, CASUAL, ELEGANT, FLEXIBLE
The clubhouse will provide more indoor and outdoor food and beverage venues where members and their guests can enjoy relaxing after-golf experiences at the patio level or in the rooftop bar over the dining room.
- Raising the Roof
Taking advantage of elevated views of the golf course, the clubhouse will feature a rooftop bar (accessible by glass elevator) that offers a unique perspective of the final golf hole and water feature around the island green.
- “All New” Grill Room Atrium Bar
The new Grill Room Atrium Bar with panoramic views of golf by day becomes an illuminated sculptural feature on the back patio in the evening.
- “Sports Watching”
A Sports Bar will provide a casually elegant environment for daily indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the island green and #18 fairway. A central gathering bar with a wall of 16 televisions promotes great after-sports camaraderie with a variety of family-friendly food and beverage options.
- New Main Dining Room: Great for Star-Gazing, Offers Private Dining
Seating up to 350, the dining room provides an elegant Epicurean experience. The exterior retractable floor-to-ceiling glass wall opens to a landscaped outdoor patio for an elegant al fresco experience. An illuminated wall of temperature-controlled wine provides a decorative separation from two private dining rooms.
- “Together” Is the Charm
The dining venues are designed to allow the main dining room and sports bar to combine for large group entertainment events and functions.
- “Small Plates” Rate
The Thirsty Palm, a “small plates” restaurant and bar, will be serving inside and outdoors. Its outdoor terrace is covered with a modulating louvered trellis system provides sunlight during the day and views of the starlit sky at night.
- Ladies Card Room: Takes on a New Wing
A new wing of the clubhouse will expand the Ladies Card Room by 2,300 square feet, providing an inviting contemporary atmosphere for women to gather for a variety of card and board games.
- Men’s Card Room: The Ultimate “Man Cave”
A greatly expanded men’s card/game room and remodeled men’s locker room, nearly doubling its current capacity, will separate the loud and quiet activities from each other.
- Golf Pro Shop Expands
A boutique shopping experience for golf equipment, apparel and gifts will be created at the new Club Logo/Retail shop that leads to the remodeled locker rooms.
- For the Youngest Set: A New Playground
Building on its success in attracting younger members into the community, a new dry playground will be located behind the poolside bistro with expanded and shaded amenities for the enjoyment of the youngest members of Broken Sound.
