Country club completes $7M renovation

A multiyear project to upgrade the facilities at the Forsyth Country Club in Winston-Salem is complete. The second phase of the $7 million renovation is a $5.2 million wellness and fitness facility. Lee Smith, chief operating officer, says the country club is more like a spa resort. The contractor was Winston-Salem-based I. L. Long Construction Co. Inc.

The new facility features cardiovascular equipment that can be used by anyone from members with limited mobility to members with excellent athletic ability. Cable weight systems and free weights also are available in the center.

Smith says the two-level center also has a personal training area and three exercise studios, where boot camps, high-intensity mind and body classes (think yoga or barre) and cycle classes will be held. About 60 cycle classes per week already are being held.

There’s also golf-specific equipment and training to help those looking to improve their game.
