The PGA Tour Spa Laterra, which will open to the public this month, celebrated its grand opening with its founding members, honorary members, World Golf Hall of Fame members, residents and guests last month.
The celebration took place at the spa with a reception and tours of the facility and culminated with the unveiling of the membership plaques.
Approximately 250 guests attended, including PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem, LPGA player Jackie Gallagher-Smith, World Golf Hall of Fame member Carol Mann and spa architect Robert D. Henry. Many of the guests also attended the World Golf Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Nov. 15.
“The Tour is pleased to attach its name to this beautiful facility and further enhance the image of the World Golf Village,” said Vernon Kelly, president of PGA Tour Golf Course Properties. “The affiliation with the Tour is further strengthened by the incorporation of golf-related programs that have been developed in association with the physical therapists who work with our athletes every week at our tournaments. The PGA Tour Spa Laterra is a wonderful addition to this premier golf destination.”
The PGA Tour Spa Laterra is open to the public and memberships are available which give full access to the spa, fitness center and pool and other exclusive benefits and privileges. The spa is the first such facility to bear the PGA Tour name and features special golf-enhancement services and fitness programs comparable to those used on the PGA Tour.
“The spa has always been an integral part of our plans for World Golf Village and we believe we found the right mix with our development company, the PGA Tour and Playground Destination Properties,” said Vaughan Blaxter, Chairman of Hillman Properties. “Together, we feel that we have created a grand experience for our residents and our guests.”
The 15,900 square-foot facility includes a 12,900 square-foot spa and 2,420 square-foot fitness center.
The spa has 11 treatment rooms including the Garden Sanctuary, a couple’s treatment area, two facial rooms, two body treatment rooms, four massage rooms and a hydro-therapy room. Treatments range from soothing aromatherapy and invigorating deep tissue massages to signature skincare services and rejuvenating body treatments.
Created through a partnership between the PGA Tour and Laterra’s developer Hillman Properties, Inc., the PGA Tour Spa Laterra is the central amenity of the 149 resort and spa residences of Laterra.
