An exclusive feature within the Café is the Fit Studio with a rotating fit platform that is located inside a re-purposed shipping container.
Pelican Marsh Golf Club underwent an extensive renovation and expansion while remaining operational, the kitchen and grill room were utilized for the members as they were renovated by BUILD the year prior. This bespoke change started with the outside where a complete remodel was done to the façade with paint, natural stone accents, and custom-made aluminum shutters and railings. The outdoor terraces were refurbished and modernized to maintain consistency with the interior renovation. The interior included the lobby, locker rooms, lounge, main and private dining rooms.
The Sand Dollar Awards, the highest accolades given by the Sales and Marketing Council of the CBIA, are presented annually to members who have demonstrated building, design and marketing excellence in the Collier County area.
