La Cita Country Club's legendary Ron Garl/Lee Trevino-designed, 18-hole golf course was built in 1982 by founding owner EKS Development. It provides 6,670 yards of challenges for golfers of all capabilities. Its manicured fairways and greens are complimented by small lakes and wooded areas that together paint a pastoral picture.
The 24,000-square-foot, Mediterranean-inspired clubhouse was designed by architect David M. Putnam and completed in 1985 to include an on-site golf pro shop, fitness center, pool, banquet facilities, lounge and dining rooms. The tennis complex that followed is considered the best clay-court facility in Brevard County.
Ownership transitioned from EKS Development to Club Corp to Jim Musick.
Present owner Vivian Dimond purchased La Cita Country Club in December 2016, engaged new management and began the work of returning the venerable club to its glory days. A Real Estate broker, investor and developer with personal passions for design, entertaining and gourmet cooking, Ms. Dimond has authored a renaissance that began with a new fleet of golf carts and restoration of the storied course. Enhancements to the clubhouse, tennis courts and dining venues followed.
Completion of the 3-phase renovation is anticipated in 2018.
