Watersound Club Expansion At Camp Creek Now Complete
April 11, 2023 by SoWal Staff
Watersound Club, The St. Joe Company’s private membership club, has now opened expansive amenity additions next to the Camp Creek Golf Course, just north of Scenic 30A on SoWal's east end.
The new amenities compliment existing Watersound Club facilities, including the Watersound Club Beach Club, Camp Creek Golf Course and Shark’s Tooth Golf Course, and include a health and wellness center with additional swimming pools, a new dining venue, tennis and pickleball courts, and recreation areas.
The wellness and recreation complex includes a 12,000 square foot Wellness Center, complete with 3 group exercise rooms, a cardio and strength training area, men’s and women’s steam rooms and saunas, a hot tub and a 19-meter adults-only lap pool. Its design incorporates colors that celebrate the richness of Watersound’s natural setting to provide a luxurious space that sooths and invigorates guests.
Adjacent to the Wellness Center, additional new amenities include a huge, family-friendly resort-style pool, complete with a lazy-river, slide, and a poolside dining venue named Bark N’ Brine, which will serve Southern barbecue with a health-conscious twist as the perfect accompaniment to the new wellness and recreational complex. The extensive recreational facilities also offer a full-service Tennis and Pickleball Pro Shop, 8 lighted tennis courts, and 8 pickleball courts. Grass fields for sports and recreation, a half basketball court and a teens’ game room are also available.
The final phase of this amenity expansion project is expected to open in the second half of 2023 and will offer Members and guests a world-class clubhouse within a new boutique inn named Camp Creek Inn, along with two additional dining venues. At the upscale ANR dining venue and the historically named lounge and dining venue, 1936, Members will enjoy pairing beautiful views with the chef’s elevated takes on local cuisine.
Guests of the Camp Creek Inn and Watersound Inn are granted a “Member for the Day” experience, allowing access to Watersound Club Membership amenities including the new health and wellness facilities, the Watersound Beach Club, and two private golf courses (Camp Creek Golf Course and Shark’s Tooth Golf Course).
“I am confident these amenities are going to amaze our Membership and offer a completely new way to enjoy being a part of Watersound Club. We’re well known for our world-class golf courses, but previously most of the activity off the course has been centered around our beach club and the draw of the area’s white sand beaches,” says Vicki Burris, Director of Membership for Watersound Club. “The size, scale, and quality of the new health and wellness offerings will make this new amenity center a destination unto itself and provide the opportunity for guests of Camp Creek Inn to experience a taste of the Watersound Club lifestyle during their stay.”
