Frenchman’s Reserve Country Club
Frenchman’s Reserve Country Club is a prestigious and sophisticated golf course community situated in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The community wanted to enlarge and elevate their clubhouse, while enhancing the interiors with an infusion of color, rich textures, luxurious finishes and an abundance of natural light.
J. Banks Design Group worked with the Troon Privé-managed design committee to create a new vernacular for the traditional aesthetic while maintaining the club’s identity. A nod to European heritage, certain iconic elements of the clubhouse, such as the chandelier in the grand stairwell, were repurposed. Golf Inc. awarded Frenchman’s Reserve Country Club an Honorable Mention for Clubhouse of the Year. We are so pleased to have this project, among other clubhouse projects, recognized by this publication.
Throughout the entire design process, we kept the lush surroundings and the club’s many amenities top of mind. The board and developers sought after a relaxed private club atmosphere that would measure up to the property’s spectacular Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course, and that is exactly the experience we delivered – casual elegance and relaxed luxury.
“Live life to the fullest through golfing, dining, fitness, spa, tennis and a social calendar filled with exciting activities for everyone,” the property’s organizers encourage. Frenchman’s Reserve Country Club has recently been recognized as a Platinum Club of America for 2016-18, in the category of top 150 Country Clubs, out of 4000+ private clubs. The Palm Beach Gardens Golf Club made its debut on this list at number 98.
“To be named one of Golf Inc.’s top Clubhouses of the Year is a tremendous honor,” said Jay Walkinshaw, general manager of Frenchman’s Reserve Country Club. “We can’t thank the architects at GliddenSpina & Partners, the interior designers at J. Banks Design Group and the contractor Carrere General Contractors enough for their outstanding efforts put forth at Frenchman’s Reserve. The clubhouse is spectacular and is being enjoyed by members and guests alike.”
