Reimagined Golf Shop at The Club at Olde Cypress Ranked Among the Best in the U.S by Club + Resort Business
Enhancements follow major clubhouse renovation and golf course enhancement
By Shane Sharp
The Club at Olde Cypress, one of the most vibrant, active and welcoming private clubs in Southwest Fla., announces its reimagined golf shop was named one of the "Top Ranked Private Club and Resort Pro Shops Across the U.S." by Club + Resort Business, coming in at No. 39.
Olde Cypress' 34,000-square-foot clubhouse reopened in September following a full-scale interior renovation by Winter Park-based Soco Interiors. The clubhouse updates are part of a multi-million-dollar investment in Olde Cypress by owner STOCK Development. In 2021, the club's P.B. Dye-designed golf course underwent a full agronomic remastering including resurfacing of all 18 greens, practice green and chipping area with TifEagle Bermuda.
The golf shop (along with the welcome area and offices) was recast in a contemporary palette of crisp whites, sophisticated grays and layered neutrals with accents of deep blue. The woodwork was painted a cool gray, blending seamlessly with new silver and wood-accented pendant lighting and a modern sphere-shaped chandelier. Countertops were finished with Calacatta stone tops, and revamped display areas for clothing and shoes create a neutral backdrop for displaying the latest fashion trends.
"Club + Resort Business is one of the most respected trade publications in our industry, and we're grateful for, and humbled by, this national recognition," says Olde Cypress General Manager Ken Lanigan. "STOCK Development is committed to creating the best private club experience in the market, and this recognition is yet another validation of this effort."
A leading trade publication based in Cleveland, Club + Resort Business covers the operations and management staff at country clubs, city clubs, yacht clubs and resorts that operate club-like facilities. Its "Top Ranked" initiative for private clubs and resorts highlights properties with top facilities and programs as judged independently by a panel of general managers from several top clubs.
The Club at Olde Cypress is owned by STOCK Development, Southwest Florida's preeminent residential developer and builder since 2001, and operated by STOCK Hospitality, which provides innovative solutions uniquely tailored to club communities. Creating exceptional member experiences is the cornerstone of all Stock Hospitality services, which range from club operations and golf course maintenance to membership marketing and programming. New members can choose from three categories of membership carefully crafted to offer something for everyone.
Widely considered one of the most vibrant, active and welcoming clubs in Southwest Florida, Olde Cypress is home to the first P.B. Dye golf course in Collier County. Other amenities include tennis and pickleball courts, fitness center and pool and a 34,000-square-foot clubhouse featuring both casual and fine dining. The club and surrounding 540-acre gated community are just minutes from Naples' famous beaches, world-class shopping on 5th Avenue, and the Southwest Florida International Airport.
