Construction was set to begin Nov. 20 on Splendor Pointe Resort, Yacht Club & Spa on Table Rock Lake. The project will cost $5.2 million when complete.

KLR Enterprises Inc. is building the resort south of Branson at the Highway 86 bridge near Long Creek. Larry Burns, of Burns & Associates, is the architect and Zarcon Inc. is the general contractor.

KLR Chief Executive Officer Karen Patton said the yacht club will be open in April or May 1999. Private memberships will be sold for the use of boats. Charter memberships are being sold now, Patton said.

Patton, who bought Branson's Coachlight Inn in August, said the hotel will initially have 34 rooms and suites. The hotel is projected to open in July.

The resort's spa is estimated to open in August and will feature week-long programs of massages, whirlpools, saunas, wraps and beauty care.

Patton said about 600 members are expected for the yacht club. KLR will partner with Gage's Long Creek Marina for the club's selection of cruisers, deck and sport boats. Gage will maintain and store the boats available to members, Patton said. She said the club will offer an alternative to individuals who wish to use the lake but are daunted by the high cost of boats.

The hotel will feature conference rooms, restaurants and exercise equipment. Speakers and lectures will be offered in the winter months, Patton said. The hotel will have suites and rooms added in succeeding phases, with a full complement of up to 120 rooms possible.

She said the Coachlight Inn was purchased to provide experience for the Splendor Pointe development.

"We had really planned to sell it," Patton said, but strong bookings will keep the hotel open this winter during months which it has been closed in the past. Interest in the upcoming Miss America pageant in Branson is part of the reason for the off-season bookings, she said.

Patton is the former chairman of Bi-Rite Directories Inc. in Springfield. The company earlier this year sold to McLeod USA for more than $3.5 million.
