After $8 million in renovations at its Drysdale Sports Center, officials with the Country Club of Landfall are marking the project's completion and preparing for the start of more changes.
The center encompasses the club's workout facility, tennis courts, pool and cafe, and among the changes, the renovations added features to the workout center, including a movement/yoga room, spinning classroom, golf plaza, tennis pro shop, youth ace tennis center, gym with pressweights and aerobics room.
The pool area was also redone.
"It's a really beautiful facility," said Amy Neathery, a resident of Landfall and broker with Landfall Realty. "I think it's going to be wonderful for Landfall and our community, for all ages."
The Country Club of Landfall has just under 1,300 members, said Kristin Wilson, membership director of the club.
She said the 20-year-old sports center was in need of changes. With the renovations, officials are hoping to "have our members be really proud of what we can offer and then of course having these new amenities attract new members," Wilson said.
Drysdale Sports Center General Manager Jessi Reutter said in a news release, "It will significantly enhance our current members' enjoyment and offer tremendous support for each member's health journey. This facility is also already proving to be a major attraction for new members. The Country Club of Landfall has a renewed focus on providing new and relevant facilities and services to all our members and the Drysdale Sports Center renovation is only the beginning of our facility enhancements.”
The second phase of facility improvements is scheduled to start this summer, with renovations to the Landfall Clubhouse, according to the release. The $5 million renovation will be focused on the main dining facilities and expanding the outdoor social gathering areas, the release said.
On Tuesday, January 16 at 4pm, the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce will be onsite for an official ribbon cutting. The public is welcome to attend and tour the facility.
The club’s amenities are only available for use by the members of the Country Club of Landfall and their guests, though people do not have to live in Landfall to become members.
At 4 p.m. Jan. 16, Wilmington Chamber of Commerce officials are scheduled to be at the Drysdale Sports Center for an official ribbon-cutting to mark the completion of the renovation project, and the public is welcome to attend and tour the facility at that time.
