Originally built in 1963 for $400,000, the original North Palm Beach Country Club has since been demolished in lieu of a $19 million overhaul.
Sitting atop stunning views of the Jack-Nicklaus designed golf course on the intracoastal waterway, the new 37,000 square foot clubhouse includes a lavish main dining room seating 166 guests, with a full bar and a 100-inch TV in the center. An outdoor terrace will have a putting green, and the remodeled “resort-style” pool will be complimented by a splash pool for children. Additionally, there will also be a sports bar and happy hour area, outdoor firepits, and a grill room with captain’s chairs and lounges.
The new clubhouse will showcase Chef Joey Giannuzzi from Farmer’s Table, who will bring his “fresh-healthy-delicious” mantra and eco-friendly standards to the club. Live music will set the tone seven nights a week, and a luxurious brunch will include a four-piece jazz quartet.
Retired Australian tennis champion Johan Kriek is bringing a junior academy to the new pro shop, featuring both local and international students, and the facility also features 10 lighted tennis courts.
In the final stages of construction, the newly rebuilt North Palm Beach Country Club will soon be the central hub of the social life for Village residents once again.
Beth Davis, the club's new general manager, said in a statement, "We want to over-communicate we are a municipal facility, open to the public. I don't think you'll find anything like this anywhere in the country."
The opening date of the Country Club and Farmer's Table restaurant has not been set. However, the golf course, pro shop, driving range and Tennis Center are now open.
