Lago Mar Country Club, already one of South Florida’s finest private country clubs, is now the most desirable, due to a $7.5 million renovation showcasing a breathtaking 18-hole golf course, the newest in Broward County. The course is the masterpiece of Kipp Schulties, one of the most admired up-and-coming architects in the industry.
Adding contour to the otherwise flat terrain typical of Florida, Schulties created cascading rolls and hills reminiscent of the Carolinas. “The elevations we added make for beautiful vistas and a more interesting framework that can be enjoyed for the next 30 to 40 years,” said the famed architect. Live oaks and classic palms such as Royals and Coconuts pepper the grounds, providing further visual splash.
Members will relish the variety of distances characterizing the new course. “Through this operation, we were able to stretch the course so that it competes with the best in South Florida,” said Schulties, explaining that the re-design simultaneously challenges the better golfers while treating high handicappers to larger playable spaces.
The newly renovated course leaves no turf unturned, as Lago Mar will feature all new greens, tees, fairways, landscaping, putting greens, and bunkers. New irrigation, roughs, cart paths, and driving range, round out the restoration.
The Schulties’ family-friendly course will play host to Club tournaments, couples golf events, men and women’s leagues, junior programs and camps.
The multi-million dollar makeover will be revealed at the much anticipated Lago Mar Grand Re-opening projected for January 2010.
