Previously unused space just steps from the main clubhouse has been transformed into a 2,400-sq. ft. recreational building that includes a multipurpose function space and comfortable lounge. Outside, amenities include a sports “green space,” regulation basketball court, gazebo, fully equipped playground and hard-surface tennis court.
The Country Club at Mirasol in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. recently cut the ribbon to officially open its new state-of-the-art Sports Complex, which renovated formerly unused space just steps from the main clubhouse into an indoor-outdoor facility that members of all ages can enjoy.
The new amenity features a 2,400 sq.-ft. recreational building that will provide a foundation for the ongoing expansion of programming for the Mirasol community’s children and grandchildren. The building includes a multipurpose function space that will be made available for activities, events, and summer camps, and a comfortable lounge with televisions, video games, and a computer station.
Outside of the building is a green space for sports and other activities that is equipped with functional synthetic turf that will not require the application of pesticides or other chemicals. Other features of the Sports Complex include a regulation-size basketball court, a fully-equipped playground with a forgiving “fall zone” surface, a gazebo, and a hard-surface tennis court that conforms to United States Tennis Association regulations for juniors, to offer more desirable conditions for tournament preparation.
“We were thrilled to have our members’ emphatic support of this unique country club amenity, and the approval of this project shows that our community believes in consistent, responsible investments into our facilities,” said Matt Lambert, Mirasol’s General Manager and Chief Operating Officer, when opening the Sports Complex. “We feel that [the new facility] will not only solidify Mirasol as the most desired community in northern Palm Beach County, but will also build on one of our strengths—our young families—to help differentiate us from our competition.
“We were fortunate to have been in the financial position to fund this entire project without member assessment or financing,” Lambert added.
