The Club at Olde Cypress a private golf club in Southwest Florida has just reopened its 34,000-square-foot clubhouse following the final phase of a major renovation of its interior and on the heels of a full-scale agronomic remastering of its golf course in 2021.

Inside The Club at Olde Cypress’ clubhouse

The Winter Park-based Soco Interiors has transformed the golf shop, welcome area, and offices with a contemporary palette of crisp whites, sophisticated grays, and layered neutrals with accents of deep blue.

The woodwork is painted a cool gray and blends perfectly with new silver and wood-accented pendant lighting and a modern sphere-shaped chandelier.

Countertops are adorned with sleek Calacatta stone tops, and display areas for clothing and shoes create a neutral backdrop for displaying the latest fashion trends.

As part of the final phase, new custom mahogany doors were installed to welcome members into the new-look clubhouse. Oversized marble-look flooring and a palette of soft grays, blues, and white set the tone in the clubhouse’s bright, open spaces.

Two gold-leafed glass chandeliers in the main hall serve as dramatic focal points, while new upholstered seating and fresh artwork add a contemporary touch.

The lighter color scheme continues into the gallery and back hall with gray-toned luxury vinyl-wood plank flooring. New valances in a shimmery fabric contrast these light, sunny spaces.

The Club at Olde Cypress – Golf course renovation

The clubhouse renovation is part of a multi-million-dollar investment in Olde Cypress by owner STOCK Development. In 2021, the club’s P.B. Dye-designed golf course underwent a full agronomic remastering including resurfacing of all 18 greens, practice green and chipping area with TifEagle Bermuda.

Tee boxes were also enlarged, leveled, and re-grassing with Bimini Bermuda. The installation of a new subsurface drainage system allows for the rapid expulsion of excess water. To complete the project, the course’s 98 bunkers were refreshed with new edging, contouring, and visually-stunning sand.

My conclusion

It would be advisable for The Club at Olde Cypress to invest in gaining a 360-degree view of golf club members and guests across all channels and interactions, so that they may better understand consumer behavior and map customer journeys.

This will help them to personalize on the highest level their services and offers too.

This renovation project should include a rethinking employee experience available in the club. The club management should think about how they can create a healthy and positive workplace environment where employees want to work and not just need to.
