Bay Harbor Yacht Club (BHYC) is known as a summer paradise,

and the club leadership wanted to provide more amenities to its

members to enjoy in the shoulder seasons and during the winter

months. Previously, BHYC had an unstaffed Fitness Room with

tightly spaced equipment that was generally unused by most of its


To fulfill its mission to serve its members as the social center of the

Bay Harbor Community with exceptional services, programs and

facilities, the leadership of BHYC engaged Peacock + Lewis to

create a multi-, phased-in master plan of renovations and expansions

for clubhouse amenities, placing the emphasis on fitness and

wellness for the well-being of current members and to attract and

engage future generations of members.

A generally unused space in the Assembly Building called the

Lang Center, which has great views to the marina and Lake Michigan

beyond, was transformed into the largest, best-equipped club

health and wellness center in Northern Michigan.

Since the remodeling, 40% of the members have become regular

users, and the expectation is that percentage will increase to 65%

when pandemic restrictions are fully lifted. In addition to this

unprecedented member activity for fitness, statistics show that the

golf simulator has been booked 10 hours per day.

In a typical year, Bay Harbor Yacht Club will take in an average of

28 new members. Since the new Wellness Center was completed in

November 2020, 70 new families have joined the club.
