A company run by the developer Lon Tabatchnick, of the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort has a contract to purchase the Weston Hills Country Club and plans to renovate it.
Weston Hills Country Club includes a 36-hole golf course and the 50,000-square-foot clubhouse with restaurants and social halls was built by Arvida 30 years ago, and is now going to be revitalized. Tabatchnick is planning to make improvements to the 36-hole golf course and 50,000-square-foot clubhouse at 2600 Country Club Way. His plan also includes building a new pool with a bar and restaurant, five new tennis courts and a fitness center
The owner, CF Weston Hills Arcis, an arm of Fortune Investment Group, bought the Weston Hills Country Club in 2014 for $14 million.
The South Florida Business Journal also reported that the current members of the Weston Hills Country Club, ranging over 1,000 individuals, learned in a January 20th email that Tabatchnick’s company would renovate the property at 18300 Country Club Way in Weston, would honor existing club memberships and would retain Century Golf Partners as the manager of the club.
Tabatchnick plans to build Country Club to build 274 rental units five stories high. The monthly rents at the apartment complex, called the Lodge at Weston Hills, probably would range from $1,800 to $2,800 on the property.
There would be no downsizing the golf course, which he plans to upgrade along with the clubhouse. He also wants to add cabanas, a pool bar and a play area for children. The renovation would include the country club’s two golf courses, upgrading the 50,000-square-foot clubhouse facility, and building a new resort-style swimming pool, poolside bar and restaurant, five new tennis courts and two pickle ball courts, plus a fitness center and a play area for kids.
Tabatchnick told the newspaper. Adache Group will handle the redesign of the country club.
