JBD JGA and Peacock + Lewis Spearhead Long-Range Property Planning Services for Fiddler’s Elbow

Pawtucket, RI – November 15, 2023 – JBD JGA Design and Architecture and Peacock + Lewis Architects and Planners, both members of the ClubWorks Network of Excellence, have been chosen by Fiddlers Elbow in Bedminster, NJ, to work together to provide facility planning, design, and architectural services for their upcoming club amenity improvements.

The two firms will work together to create a comprehensive facility program for various site elements that may be developed in phases. This includes overnight accommodations, a conference center with meeting facilities, an event space, a wellness center with spa and fitness facilities, an expansion of the aquatics complex, relocation of cart storage, and coordinating with the proposed golf course relocation and expansion. The project will also explore expanding golf performance facilities, relocating and expanding golf course support outbuildings, expanding racquet facilities for sports like pickleball, both indoor and outdoor, and determining the best use of existing onsite residential properties.

“Our members call Fiddler’s Elbow an escape, a resort, and their home away from home. We look forward to bringing even more amenities to them to enhance the lifestyle we provide,” said Ken Donovan, President of Fiddler’s Elbow. “And what truly makes this special is the opportunity for us to work with two of the top firms in the industry on this project who each bring their unique skills, experiences, and perspectives. For a project of this undertaking, it benefits us to have both of them assisting us.”

“JBD JGA has had the pleasure of working with Fiddler’s Elbow for a number of years, and we are honored they have chosen us to assist them in the very important planning for this next phase in their club’s continued improvements,” said Steve McMahon, Executive Vice President of JBD JGA. “We are also excited to be able to work with Peacock + Lewis to complement each other on this job.”

“We are thrilled to embark on this journey of crafting a visionary plan for Fiddler’s Elbow with JBD JGA,” said Brian Idle, CEO of Peacock + Lewis. “Our passion for creating amenities that inspire and elevate members’ experiences will guide us in shaping a future that reflects the club’s unique character and aspirations on this special property.”
