The Riviera’s New Sparkle

The Venerable Country Club Gets a Major Facelift

After a year and a half, the construction of the Riviera Country Club clubhouse has finally been completed. The $37 million dollar project consists of a 60,000 square-foot building and a 17,000 square-foot patio and dining terrace. Aside from sporadic additions to the facilities over the years, this is the first large-scale improvement since 1945. “[The project] just brought it up to the expectations of a clubhouse in 2019,” says Mark Snure, the club’s general manager. “The members are just over the moon…” Meeting the changing demands of its membership, the new clubhouse also includes an 8,000 square-foot state of the art fitness center and lap pool. To join the club, however, is tougher than a high-intensity workout. Located at 1155 Blue Rd., the club is currently capped at 1,000 members, with a two-year waitlist for a social membership and a one-year waitlist for a golf membership.
