Shell Point Retirement Community has broken ground on a two-story, 35,000-square-foot clubhouse that will house Shell Point Golf Club, as well as two restaurants, fitness and aerobics center, salon and spa services, and additional resort-style amenities. Club memberships will be offered on a limited basis to the local Fort Myers community, who will share the facility with Shell Point residents.
Located at Shell Point’s 18-hole championship course, The Shell Point Clubhouse will center around a fully equipped pro shop, climate-controlled cart barn, and locker rooms with lounge area. “The $14 million clubhouse is designed to provide a comfortable place to gather and relax, with formal and casual dining options, professional salon and spa services, and spacious meeting spaces available for booking, among other luxury amenities.” said Scott Moore, vice president of operations at Shell Point.
Shell Point Club members will have access to a fully equipped exercise room and popular fitness and aerobics classes. Plans also include expanded tennis facilities in the nearby Woodlands neighborhood on the Shell Point campus.
Site work is underway with vertical construction expected to commence this month, according to Wright Construction Group, the construction management firm hired to oversee the building of the clubhouse.
Early estimates indicate that The Shell Point Clubhouse will be ready for use in fall 2016. “Wright Construction is thrilled to continue our 28-year relationship with Shell Point by managing the construction of the much anticipated clubhouse,” said Scott Loiacano, project manager.
Shell Point Golf Club’s 18-hole, par-71 championship golf course offers a grass driving range and practice green, lessons coordinated by PGA golf pro Gary Keating, plus a fully stocked pro shop. The semi-private course is located near the entrance to Shell Point Retirement Community at 17401 On Par Boulevard, Fort Myers, Florida, two miles before the Sanibel Causeway.
