The Club at the Dunes, a private club in The Dunes of Naples residential community, has been certified as one of America’s Healthiest Clubs, recognizing its culture of well-being for both members and staff.

Each year, industry wellness expert Prevo Health Solutions conducts surveys, research, interviews and on-site evaluations to determine the club industry’s most complete library of best practices, including activities, events, workshops, classes, programming, lecture series, challenges, incentive programs and management systems. The private club industry is very influential in continuing members’ health.

America’s Healthiest Clubs is the club industry’s only wellness rating system, providing a third-party validation and recognition for a healthy environment. Certification is key for member recruitment, retention and experience. Recruiting and retaining healthy members and staff increases usage and revenues while lowering employee related costs, both of which help to improve member experience.

Only a small percentage of the nation’s private clubs has been recognized among America’s Healthiest Clubs. Once a club has been properly vetted, they can proudly display the service marks on the club’s web site, as part of marketing collateral material, and within member communications/newsletters.

“We are delighted to earn this important industry certification,” said Arell Harris, general manager for The Dunes of Naples. “Being named among America’s Healthiest Clubs is validation of our wellness strategies to address the health and wellness needs of not only current members, but future members.”

In 2019, The Club at the Dunes completed a $9.2 million renovation and expansion project. The new coastal-themed amenities center features a 25,000-square-foot clubhouse with a new Royal Palm Room restaurant; SandBar indoor/outdoor bar; and a flexible club room for events. In addition, a new Tiki Bar was added as a popular poolside destination for residents of The Dunes of Naples and their guests.

As part of the renovation and expansion, the entire pool area was renovated and now includes fire pit tables and a lounge area in a new courtyard. The wellness and fitness center also was expanded, adding a group exercise room, two rooms dedicated to massages or physical therapy, a new tennis office and pro shop, and a recreational game room equipped with pool table, ping pong tables and shuffle board.

Located just steps from Vanderbilt Beach, The Dunes of Naples is comprised of seven high-rise towers of high-end luxury condominiums and 40 luxury coach homes. The Dunes of Naples is managed by Troon, the world’s largest golf and club management company providing services at more than 440 locations around the globe.
