Last weekend, Jeff and I had the opportunity to get away from the kids and enjoy a fun date night out at Gleneagles Country Club. We had been invited to explore their multimillion-dollar renovations by way of their Grand Opening Club Crawl and it was a night we were definitely looking forward to!
As a kid who grew up going to the country club, I’m familiar with the perks and I couldn’t wait to see what the Gleneagles renovations entailed. Even Jeff, who actually worked there in high school, was intrigued with the updates, as well.
Gleneagles Country Club is located in the heart of Plano, where it has been a proud member of the community for 25 years. Of course, country clubs have been traditionally known for their golf courses and Gleneagles offers 36 holes of championship golf. In addition, the club features a TaylorMade Performance Lab, with a state-of-the-art fitting experience that uses 3D motion capture technology to record player data. It was also a nice surprise to learn this TaylorMade Performance Lab is open to the public!
If you’re more of the tennis type, like me, you will like hearing the club also features 18 lighted outdoor hard tennis courts!
GlenEagles Renovation Refreshed Its Designs and Amenities
They recently added a new restaurant and grill where members can dine in style on fresh and innovative cuisine.
With plenty of seating available, t’s the perfect place to enjoy a quaint meal or to sit back and watch the wall full of large flatscreen tvs.
Just a short step outside of this grill, you will find the new outdoor terrace that’s the perfect al fresco setting with a gorgeous golf course view. As nice as the weather was on the night of the Club Crawl, Jeff and I spent a lot of time enjoying the terrace and can definitely see how this would be a serene resting place for anyone.
Gleneagles has also added a new wine cellar with rich tones, elegant seating, and a wide selection of favorites. I loved the decor in this room and my first impression was how swanky it looked. I can picture a lot of fun girls nights taking place in this room.
In addition, Gleneagles has added a new fitness club center with state-of-the-art equipment and a variety of classes to energize body and mind. I know this would be somewhere I would spend a lot of time as a country club member and I love knowing the exercise classes are available for women like me who thrive in that type of exercise environment.
But What About the Kids?
Country club members have a decreasing average age. You’re likely to find many members in their 30s and 40s, but with members in that age bracket, you’re also likely to find lots of kids.
As a mom, I’m not only interested in what’s available for me to enjoy in the country club environment but I also want to know what’s in it for my kids. Fortunately, Gleneagles recognized the need for kids spaces and introduced their new kids’ club!
This precious space is a supervised playroom that allows parents to enjoy the club while their children have their own fun! I know our younger kids would love a room like this!
In addition to the kids’ club, Gleneagles made sure to take care of their younger members outside, as well.
In the pool area, you will find 4 swimming pools, a large slide, and a playground area. This year, Gleneagles offered games daily, weekly children’s crafts, snow cone day, family movies every Friday night and Family Fun Sundays, which even allowed free guests for children under 12! How fun!
But if you’re not looking for kid fun by the pool, you can still take advantage of the beautiful adult pool area and take advantage of full poolside service.
To say we were blown away by all of the renovations at Gleneagles Country Club would be an understatement! They’ve done so much to ensure it’s a home away from home for any of their members and their family.
