A $20 million renovation project is in progress at the 27-hole Addison Reserve Country Club in Delray Beach, Florida.

Golf course architect Rees Jones and his design associate Steve Weisser are overseeing work on the three nines, which were originally designed by Arthur Hills. New practice facilities featuring training and fitting bays will also be constructed, along with a lit driving range.

“Known in the industry for innovation, Rees has created and overseen many wonderful course renovations and we are honoured that he has chosen to work with us here at Addison Reserve to elevate our golfing experience,” said Michael J. McCarthy, CEO and general manager of the club. “The influx of younger members to the club and the resurgence of interest in premier country club golf facilities led the board and management to view the golf course renovation as a top priority.”

The project began in May 2023, focusing on the Trepidation nine, as well as the practice facilities. The club expects this phase to be completed by December 2023.

“The bulkheading and littorals we are installing are going to be great complements to the Platinum Paspalum,” said Josh Fleisher, the club’s director of golf course maintenance. “It is such an honour to be able to work alongside Rees Jones and witness his passion and creativity for golf and Addison Reserve. The changes that we are making are really going to change the way you have played holes for many years.”

The Redemption and Salvation nines will be renovated in 2024.
