West Palm Beach, FL (October 23, 2013) — Ibis Golf & Country Club has begun a $33 million capital improvement project that will expand and enhance the existing clubhouse and add a new Ibis Sports Village.

West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and District Commissioner Keith James officially broke ground with members of Ibis.

In January, members of the club overwhelmingly approved plans for the project.

The Ibis Sports Village will consist of a two-story fitness complex, poolside Bistro, full-service spa, and a resort-style aquatic center. Local construction and architectural firms The Weitz Company and Leo A Daly have been retained to build the projects.

“I’m so happy to be a part of this; it’s going to be beautiful,” Mayor Muoio said in a statement. “You couldn’t have a better group of people building this project, and I look forward to the ribbon cutting.” In the statement, Commissioner James added, “This is a very exciting day, and this is good news for the entire city and residents of Ibis.”

“We’re confident the new facilities will create extraordinary amenities for our active membership to enjoy,” said Stephen J. LoGiudice, general manager, adding, “The project will create many local jobs within our city.” The overall project will involve several phases of construction with the full project scheduled to be completed in late 2015.

Ibis Golf & Country Club is an West Palm Beach country club community of 33 neighborhoods and 54 holes of golf on three Nicklaus-family golf courses. Ibis is on the edge of northern West Palm Beach.
