The Club at Mediterra
The Club at Mediterra has completed nearly $17 million in renovations to its two championship golf courses, an expansion at The Sports Club and the addition of new tennis and bocce courts.
The projects were designed to enhance the membership experience and the active lifestyle at Mediterra, the only Naples country club recently named among the Platinum Club’s 2016-2018 top 50 private clubs in the country.
Additional social and meeting space and a larger fitness center were among the top priorities identified by Sports Club members. The $1.5 million project doubled the size of the existing fitness center and introduced all new equipment, including a Life Fitness Synrgy system, which incorporates multiple workout options and configurations and MyZone, a monitor used for group exercise and personal training to track heart rate and optimize workout efficiency.
Mediterra’s commitment to providing an extraordinary golf experience necessitated improvements to the Tom Fazio-designed North and South courses.
The two-year project started in 2015 and was completed in phases during the slower summer months. Enhancements included replacing irrigation, bunkers and re-grassing with Platinum TE seashore paspalum. Practice facilities and ranges were also renovated.
Work on the South Course was completed in December 2015; the North Course this December.
“From the tee box to the out-of-bounds area and each grain of sand, everything is brand new,” said Carmen Mauceri, club general manager and chief operating officer. “The only thing we didn’t touch were the greens.”
“The grass was chosen for its color, cold-weather and low-light tolerance, playability and performance,” said Tim Hiers, director of agronomy for The Club at Mediterra. “It has very deep roots and is the best on the market. We now have 200 acres of new grass on 36 holes.”
Named a 10-time Community of the Year winner by the Collier Building Industry Association, Mediterra offers luxury estates and single-family maintenance-free villas by London Bay Homes, priced from $1 million to over $7 million.
