In August 2020, The Venice Golf and Country Club broke ground on a $6.1 million capital expansion plan, named Project 2020.

Peacock + Lewis Architects, a Clubs of Distinction architect and interior design planning firm in Naples, Florida, worked closely with VGCC committee members to bring their design vision to life, and Gates Construction is partnering on the construction process.

The expansion includes a new covered outdoor dining area and gathering bar as well as an expanded kitchen. The Wellness Center will triple in size, with expanded floor exercise rooms, the addition of two spa treatment rooms, and new cardio and weight room with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment.

“Our community is very social, and our Clubhouse has always been a favorite gathering spot,” says Chris Madigan, VGCC Board Vice President and Chair of the Long Range Planning Committee. “It will be stunning, and no one will want to leave!”

VGCC is the only private, member-owned equity club in Venice, FL. It is an award-winning Audubon Geo Certified Sanctuary with 587 properties, set among 460 acres of lush tropical landscapes, 26 lakes and 13 natural preserves. The VGCC lifestyle is centered around the newly renovated 18-hole golf course, tennis, pickleball, swimming, the Wellness Center, and dining. Members also enjoy an active social calendar.
