Project Spotlight: Woodfield Country Club
By closely working with the club manager, board members, and club staff, WGI’s Landscape Architecture Team lead the redevelopment of the club’s 20.34-acre parcel, by expanding the parcel to 23.45 acres in order to provide the best in class experience that their members are accustomed to.
Following the success of WGI’s collaboration with Leo A. Daily Architects for the club’s 2016 redesign of their pool complex, clubhouse, and Cascades fitness facility, WGI continued to upgrade the club’s state of the art fitness and wellness options by further expanding their sports complex.
The success of the pool complex and clubhouse expansions left the club in need of additional parking for the upgraded facilities. By filling a portion of the existing retention pond, WGI helped solve the lack of parking issue, while expanding the outdoor sports amenities.
Directly next to the expanded pool complex, WGI picked up where the previous expansion left off and provided four brand new pickleball courts and four multipurpose courts that can be used for field hockey or volleyball.
In addition to the eight new courts, a new basketball court was provided alongside a 1,500 sf pavilion that houses ping pong and foosball tables while offering plenty of space to sit in the shade and rest between sets or watch the activities that take place within the 1.25-acre grass sports field.
The sports field has the capability to host a variety of events from flag football games to tournaments and other special events. WGI also redesigned and modernized the landscape at the main entrance of the club to complement the other improvements.
WGI lead the club through all phases of the project. From conceptual development, site plan approval, construction documents and permitting, to construction administration, ensuring project success, and client satisfaction.
