Club at Olde Cypress Getting a Clubhouse Renovation

by | Feb 15, 2024 | News

The Club at Olde Cypress in Naples., FL, one of the more vibrant private clubs in Southwest Florida, will undergo a transformative clubhouse renovation project beginning in the spring of 2025, club owner STOCK Development announced.

When the multi-million-dollar endeavor concludes in January 2026, the 34,000-square-foot clubhouse, one of the private club’s centerpiece amenities, will have an additional 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, redefining the dining and social scene for members.

“The clubhouse is the social pulse of our community, and this project will ensure it continues to be the place for our members to gather – whether they are having drink on the patio or they want to enjoy a fine dining experience – long into the future,” said Claudine Léger-Wetzel, STOCK Development’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The project reflects STOCK Development’s dedication to maintaining the exceptional standards members of The Club at Olde Cypress have long enjoyed.”

Among the many highlights of the project are:

  • Adding a 2,500-square-foot covered bar and dining area on the first floor will allow members to enjoy the beautiful Naples weather throughout the year.
  • A new 2,000-square-foot kitchen to support the casual and fine dining options Executive Chef Caesar Fernandez and his team serve daily.
  • The clubhouse’s second floor will receive a dramatic expansion of its covered terrace and sun deck, highlighted by a new bar area.
  • A new Wine Cave and Private Dining area featuring a redesigned kitchen entrance.
  • The addition of a golf simulator and movie theatre experience.

Olde Cypress’ stunning P.B. Dye-designed golf course will remain open throughout the project, as will the racquet sports and various social activities that are at the heart of the club’s popularity.

The clubhouse project will come on the heels of a 2021 golf course renovation that earned rave reviews. Among the highlights of the golf course project were the resurfacing of each of its18 greens, practice green, and chipping area with TifEagle Bermuda; enlarging, leveling, and re-grassing tee boxes; installation of a new subsurface drainage system for rapid expulsion of excess water and new high-performance, artificial turf stations on the driving range for use when the grass tees are closed.
