The city-owned property in Goose Creek, S.C., has expanded its dining capacity inside and outside, while refurbishing floors, adding a grab-and-go area, and displaying historically significant images. Residents are invited to see the improvements at an open house on December 2.
A unique renovation project is nearing completion at the public Crowfield Golf Club in Goose Creek, S.C., the Berkeley (S.C.) Independent reported.
The bar area of the club, including its patio, has received a facelift. City residents can see the improvements firsthand at an open house on December 2, the Independent reported.
Goose Creek City Council authorized the improvements, and asked designer Stacey Quinn Williams to draw on the city’s history in the redecoration, the Independent reported.
“We wanted to play up the history of Crowfield Plantation and the entire area,” Williams said. “We wanted to give the clubhouse a more historic feel and character.”
New tables with tufted faux leather chairs are improvements that also bring an increased seating capacity. The bar and dining area’s capacity increased from 49 to 65 inside, and from 16 to 50 outside, the Independent reported.
The restrooms that connect to the bar received new faux wooden floors, and fresh carpeting was installed throughout the bar and dining area. A freestanding brick wall creates space for the clubhouse’s “grab and go” area for golfers, and new granite bars and tables were placed outside. More space was created by turning a closet area separating the bar from the golf clubhouse into a dining nook where buffet spreads can be placed, the Independent reported.
Williams turned to Goose Creek Mayor Michael Heitzler for historical images that are now displayed in frames on the clubhouse walls. The images, coupled with brick and rough-hewn cedar walls, drop leaf tables and lanterns, have brought a sense of history to the interior, the Independent reported.
In addition to a historical map, the images include the Crowfield ruins, Oaks Plantation, and the Goose Creek Bridge. The renovations are not all historical in nature: Two new 55-inch televisions were added to the dining area, and new ceiling fans inside and outside were also added, the Independent reported.
City of Goose Creek Golf Director Troy Sanders said the project has been well received. “City Council wanted to refresh an aging facility due to the amount of people we have here,” he said. “A lot of people don’t realize the amount of traveling golfers we receive every month…we see everything from summer vacationers to package groups in the fall and winter from cities with colder climates.”
