Sawgrass Country Club Health and Fitness Center


Recognizing the need to replace an outdated and inadequate Fitness Center, ELM worked with the membership and staff at Sawgrass Country Club to master plan, program, and design a health-and-fitness facility that is consistent with the Club’s reputation as one of the finest private country clubs in the southeast.

Originally founded in the early 1970s, Sawgrass Country Club’s member amenities include a championship golf course, clubhouse, tennis club, beach club, and fitness center.  Despite the club’s impressive reputation, the Health and Fitness Center was never consistent with the club’s other amenities.

ELM was asked to develop a refined project program and plan for the Health and Fitness Center consisting of cardio and group fitness, a pool for lap swimming and aqua-aerobics, spa treatment room, kids care, restrooms, parking, and outdoor play space.
