Gleneagles Country Club, a private club established in Plano in 1985 and a member of the ClubCorp family of clubs, has completed its six-year $8,248,000 improvement project, which entailed upgrades to its two championship golf courses, driving range, tennis courts, pool facilities, fitness club and kids club. The project also included the construction of a new restaurant and grill area, outdoor terrace, bar and wine cellar and women’s locker room.
Gleneagles now offers its members a new and improved King’s Course, complete with the installation of MiniVerde grass on the greens, redesigned square tee boxes, premium white sand bunkers and water features.
Renovations were also made to the Queen’s Course, improving the bent grass greens and adding premium white sand bunkers. A 2,220-square-foot outdoor terrace for al fresco dining was added, overlooking this course.
The club also enhanced the driving range experience by doubling the size of the previous hitting deck and adding a new outdoor lounge area with many amenities such as fire pits, grills and a state-of-the-art entertainment system.
The tennis facilities were updated adding pickleball lines to the courts and adding an observatory tennis deck. In addition to the tennis court improvements, Gleneagles also added new cabanas, lounge chairs, a waterslide and a playground to the pool area at the club. The fitness center and ladies’ locker room were both revamped, complete with luxury amenities.
The private event space now has an upgraded bar, a premiere audio/visual system and new design features such as darkened wood, contemporary artwork and modern lighting.
5401 Grille is the new restaurant at the country club offering award-winning cuisine and excellent views of the golf course. Additionally, The Cellar, the new wine bar, was added providing handcrafted cocktails, high-end collections and an extensive wine cellar with more than 125 selections to choose from.
“We are thrilled with the upgrades made to Gleneagles,” said Lisa Neel, the club’s general manager. “Although it’s been a journey, the renovations made to the club will better serve our members, giving them a contemporary, comfortable space to enjoy all of Gleneagles’ amenities. This renovation project not only emphasizes our dedication to the future of Gleneagles, but also upholds the club’s 33-year tradition of excellence.”Gleneagles Country Club >
