The existing low roof over the central portion of the building was removed and replaced with a twenty-six-foot vaulted ceiling for the new Gumbo Limbo Grille. An additional 31 feet of space was added along the south side of the building overlooking the golf course to expand casual outdoor and indoor dining, Men's card room, and Fitness center. The entire clubhouse interior, including new construction, remodeled, and existing spaces, received new custom carpet, luxury vinyl wood look plank flooring, and fresh paint on all walls, ceilings, doors, and trim. Ledger stone was applied in the existing lobby to add texture and interest and the central Banyan Room received multicolored herringbone pattern flooring inserts and river rock stone niches up the walls to break up the passageway feeling of the old space. The new Member's Lounge features a custom built-in illuminated wine display with water wall and repeats the multicolored herringbone pattern flooring found in the Banyan Room. Intricate ceiling details, architectural wood moldings, and unique decorative lighting crown each space.

A variety of seating group options were used in the dining and lounge areas for unique socialization experiences.
