Seagate Golf Club: Improving the World-Class Facilities
The Seagate Golf Club in Delray Beach, FL., has reopened its course after a major renovation by architect J. Drew Rogers, who oversaw the renovation of the original Joe Lee design.
The 18-hole course – part of the Seagate Hotel & Spa – winds through 300 acres of Bimini Bermuda grass and tree-lined fairways. The practice facility offers a fully outfitted driving range, pitching, and bunker areas.
The renovation features improvements to the greens, fairways, tees, bunkers, irrigation, drainage, turfgrasses, landscaping, as well as the driving range and practice facilities.
“Recognized as one of the best golf courses in the region, this full renovation continues to provide our members with the world-class facilities they’ve come to expect,” said Alex Schnoeller, managing director of The Seagate.
“Our architect carefully analyzed our course and designed the plans for the full renovation of the entirety of our golf facilities,’’ said Seagate Director of Agronomy Alan Fike. “Throughout the renovation, I was on the course each day, ensuring that the myriad of intricate design details was executed to plan. We know our members will be very pleased with the results.”
The Seagate also renovated its 41,064 square foot golf clubhouse, which includes a dining room serving lunch, brunch, and dinner with indoor and outdoor seating and a Grand Ballroom, Dining Room, Grille Room, and Courtyard. The clubhouse renovation included architectural finishes in the lobby, meeting rooms and event spaces, locker rooms, corridors, and the outdoor patio.
The new design, Schnoeller said, is inspired by the serene and tailored aesthetic of the clubhouse and the history of the greater Palm Beach area. Historic colorways and jute wallcovering in the architecture paired with soft neutrals and sage greens in the upholstery define the relaxed color palette of the refreshed space. Touches include leather tufted couches in intimate seating areas, a custom reception desk detailed in burl wood and accented with a leather top, and new brass glowing alabaster light fixtures. The clubhouse also contains a new curated art collection displayed throughout, blending a mixture of painterly abstract pieces with vintage photos by Slim Aarons of Palm Beach and the surrounding area. In a relaxed nod to Hollywood regency glamour, the patio showcases marble dining tables and rattan furniture on the patio.
The Seagate CC community also has a Racquets Center and fitness. The club also offers a range of dining options, from casual lunches at the 19th Hole Café to formal dinners in the center dining room.
