Village wants your ideas on North Palm Beach Country Club


Village residents have two more weeks to register their opinions online on the future of the North Palm Beach Country Club.

The anonymous survey by the village, which is free and takes about five minutes to complete, is available at village-npb.org.

Demolishing the 50-year-old building that houses the golf shop and Village Tavern restaurant is being considered. Changes to the swimming pool, located adjacent to the building, are also under consideration.

All facilities at the country club, including the golf course, are open to the public.

Village officials hope to start the project next year and complete it by the end of 2017. The village council has approved a master plan for the project. Plans have been submitted for consideration.

“It’s absolutely necessary we get as broad of a response from the public as possible,” said North Palm Beach Mayor Robert Gebbia.

A cost for the plan for the new building at the country club, located on the west side of U.S. 1 between Northlake Boulevard and the Parker Bridge, has not been determined. The final cost and schedule will be determined after the survey is complete, said Gebbia.

The village has been making updates to the country club for the last decade.

The par-71 Jack Nicklaus Signature course was redesigned and opened to the public for play in the fall of 2006. The course was lengthened to more than 7,000 yards from the back tees.

In 2009, the village installed clay courts, a new 2,000-square-foot clubhouse, new lighting, irrigation, and landscaping as part of $500,000 in improvements to the tennis center, located on the north side of the country club. The new clubhouse has showers, a small kitchen and a meeting room. The tennis center is open to the public.
