West Palm Beach, FL (Oct. 16, 2013) - West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and District Commissioner Keith James officially broke ground with members of Ibis Golf & Country Club on their $33M Capital Improvement Project.

In January, members of the Club overwhelmingly approved plans for an expansion and enhancement to their existing Clubhouse and the addition of a new Ibis Sports Village, consisting 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 by the Club.

“I’m so happy to be a part of this; it’s going to be beautiful,” said Mayor Muoio. “You couldn’t have a better group of people building this project, and I look forward to the ribbon cutting.” 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. "We’re extremely appreciative that Mayor Muoio and Commissioner James were able to attend this important day. 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. Member services will be available throughout each phase.
