Shell Point Retirement Community recently celebrated a major construction milestone during a traditional “topping off” ceremony for its two-story, 35,000-square-foot clubhouse located at Shell Point Golf Course. Wright Construction Group is building the $14 million facility.
As hot, rainy summer months approach, interior construction will address remaining mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Installation of final equipment, interior décor, staff training, and other finishing touches are underway; amenities will include premium audio/visual equipment for small-scale concerts and speaking events, supportive aids for the hearing impaired, and full Wi-Fi.
Early estimates indicate that The Shell Point Clubhouse will be ready for use in fall 2016.
Club memberships will be offered on a limited basis to the local Fort Myers community, who will share the facility with Shell Point residents. Shell Point Clubhouse members will have access to a fully equipped exercise room offering popular fitness and aerobics classes.
Located at Shell Point’s 18-hole championship golf course, The Shell Point Clubhouse will also house the Shell Point Golf Pro Shop, as well as two restaurants, salon and spa services, plus additional resort-style amenities. Details about membership fees and booking the clubhouse for special events will be confirmed soon, and posted on a dedicated website.
Shell Point Golf Club’s par-71, Audubon-certified course offers a grass driving range, chipping, and practice green; lessons coordinated by PGA golf professional Gary Keating; and a well-stocked sports retail store. 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.
