How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?
In the beginning of COVID-19 we did have this concept for an outdoor fitness option, as our Athletic Center was closed for a few months. We have fine tuned and designed a parcourse that is visually appealing and easily accessible to all members. This course is set up on the back nine of our award-winning golf course and available to ALL members seven days a week before 8:30 am and all day on Mondays. At The Fountaingrove Club, our motto states that we are "One Club, One Community" and this parcourse concept and addition to the Club has provided members with different membership types to access more of the campus and enjoy the wonderful views provided by mother nature. This parcourse give Athletic members a chance to enhance their workouts by incorporating fitness challenges while they work on their cardio, as well as give golf members a chance to workout while they play! This parcourse has joined our club so our members all truly embrace their chosen community.
How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?
We are happy to announce that our parcourse is up and running as of last week, and ALL members are thoroughly enjoying it. Our members are encouraged to bring their families and pets out to the course when we are closed to enjoy a wonderfully brisk walk. The back nine of our course is about 2.5 miles long and adding a parcourse into the mix only makes the walk more exciting! It encourages Athletic and Golf members to co-mingle out on the course all while getting a sufficient workout in, all they need is their own body weight and some motivation. Soon, we will do a Tips & Tricks on our official Instagram account to introduce more ways to use the course, other than playing golf!
