Following years of discussions, the Village of North Palm Beach will finally get a new clubhouse at its country club.
The Weitz Company has begun demolition of the existing 55-year-old clubhouse to make way for the new 38,708-square-foot, two-story facility that will feature a new main entry drive; indoor community multi-purpose/banquet facility; large outdoor seating area; locker rooms; restrooms; splash pad; pro shop; and golf cart storage area.
“We look forward to successfully delivering the new community gathering space for Village residents to enjoy over the next 55 years,” said The Weitz Company Executive Vice President and General Manager Dennis Gallagher.
First opened in 1963, the North Palm Beach Country Club is a Village-owned recreational facility that features the second municipal golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. The most common gathering place for the 13,000 Village residents is the pool. It had to be temporarily closed at the start of demolition, but it will reopen in a limited capacity on July 27 with a reopening ceremony for the community.
The Village intends to keep the tennis complex and driving range open to the public during construction with minimal interruption to regular activities and available parking. Project completion is scheduled for late summer in 2019.
