Fort Myers, Fla. (March 9, 2023) – Colonial Country Club in Fort Myers, Fla. has been named one of ‘America’s Healthiest Clubs’ by Prevo Health Solutions. Prevo Health Solutions is the premier wellness solutions provider in the club industry, offering online, onsite and on-target wellness programming to help clubs increase member usage and reduce health care costs.
To qualify as one of America’s Healthiest Clubs, Colonial Country Club underwent an onsite evaluation and extensive interviews with key department heads. Colonial Country Club received high scores across every department where “strategy” ranked the highest, thanks to the club’s ongoing commitment to providing the ultimate member experience. With its eight tennis courts, eight pickle ball courts, bocce courts, horseshoe pits, a championship golf course, a wellness center, spa, aquatics programming, bike and walker-friendly streets, accommodative culinary operations and 160-acre preserve with boardwalk, the Colonial Country Club community was a natural fit for the ‘Healthiest Clubs’ designation.
“For Colonial Country Club to be recognized as one of America’s Healthiest Clubs is an honor and speaks to our incredible facilities, purpose and club culture,” said Robert Podley, Colonial Country Club’s general manager. “Our team continues to work hard to engage residents and members and truly live our motto of Be Great, Have Fun, Practice Kindness.”
Prevo Health is dedicated to recognizing private clubs and their management team for their passion, vision and commitment to enriching the lives of the members and staff through effective health and wellness programming and by leveraging available resources and amenities. America’s Healthiest Club certification and accompanying Health Report helps clubs and private communities improve their marketability to an expanded market base, increase member usage and reduce attrition and member downgrades that may be caused by lack of use associated with health-related issues. In addition, the certification and accompanying Health Report provides recommendations and best-practices that help clubs design and deploy employee wellness strategies that help improve the health and well-being of the employees and their families, with the goal of lowering health care costs, increasing productivity, reducing absenteeism, and most importantly, improving the member experience.
Colonial Country Club’s commitment to enhancing the member experience includes new and upgraded amenities for members to enjoy. In 2021, the club completed a $6.5 million dollar clubhouse project focused on expanding the functionality of the clubhouse, creating more flexible open space and elevating the member dining experience.
