Charlotte, N.C. – With the addition of a state-of-the-art fitness center & pro-shop, Myers Park Country Club (one of Charlotte’s oldest and finest private clubs) nears the completion of the second phase of their Centennial Plan. The Centennial Plan is their comprehensive plan for additions, renovations, and improvements that positions the Club at the forefront of area private clubs.
Edifice recently completed Phase II with construction of the 24,000 square foot sports complex.
Club President Tim Garrison remarked, “Our contractor and designer have done an incredible job of making our new sports complex fit in with our existing clubhouse and grounds. The facility appears as though it has been on campus since our early beginnings, and the views the facility provides of our practice range and the golf course are stunning.”
Whether you are 18 or 80, there is something for everyone in this well-appointed facility, making this a place their membership will want to visit each day.
The first floor offers a remarkable golf and pro shop, expanded ladies locker room, showers, steam room and lounge areas. High-end finishes abound making this area feel like a luxury spa with travertine marble and abundant casework throughout. There’s also a spacious locker room for guests of the club to enjoy on the main level.
The second floor offers over 5,600 square feet of space dedicated exclusively to fitness including cardio & strength training. A large exercise room and three (3) separate workout areas allow the club to offer expertise from coaches, trainers and therapists through a menu of programs.
The lower level contains the golf training area and houses bag storage, cart parking, restrooms and a club fitting shop.
The exterior of the fitness building is the same architectural style and masonry construction as the original clubhouse that is nearing its one-hundredth birthday. Carefully situated in the location of the original tennis facility and adjacent to the driving range, the building indeed looks as if it has existed since the founding of the club.
David Stanford, Edifice project executive noted “Our continued success at Myers Park is a direct result of the collaborative effort between the building committee, designers and the Edifice construction team.” Stanford added, “We are also excited to begin the third phase which will include a men’s grill and family pub in the former pro shop area. In addition, extensive renovations will be made to the formal and informal dining rooms, as well as the kitchen areas.” Construction of Phase III is anticipated to begin in January 2015.
As the Centennial Plan comes to fruition, the membership continues to be impressed by the improvements at every level.
