With the installation of a bridal suite, a new outdoor events lawn, and a flagstone patio with fire pit, the club is working through a renovation project, and will add a porte-cochere before another phase begins in 2015.
Parts of the golf greens at Brentwood (Tenn.) Country Club may be looking brown now, but after work is complete, members will be able to play on newly laid sod, say their wedding vows on a lush green lawn and enter the clubhouse without getting rained on, the Nashville-based Tennessean reported.
Extensive renovations will increase member satisfaction with the club’s amenities and possibly attract new members in the process, said General Manager Todd Hendrix. “We’ve installed over 200 tons of stone walls and laid over 4,000 pieces of cut bluestone,” he said.
So far, a bridal suite has been added to the 1829-built Midway mansion that serves as the clubhouse, a new outdoor events lawn has been built and a flagstone back patio and fire pit have been set, the Tennessean reported.
Some of the work that is still under construction includes redoing the parking lot by adding more spaces and improving the flow for automobiles and golf carts by installing a cart staging area behind the clubhouse. New landscaping also will be installed, the Tennessean reported.
The golf greens will see a renovation to Hole No. 1 as well as to the lake on Hole No. 18 and tee boxes on Hole No. 10. A renovated practice facility with added practice greens and a short game putting area that includes three new putting greens also are in the works. The first phase of a new irrigation system will be installed but finished off next year, the Tennessean reported.
A new covered porte-cochere entrance on the clubhouse, which should be done in July, will be the last item to complete the project, the Tennessean reported.
Another phase, which probably will kick off in 2015, will concentrate on amenities across the street from the clubhouse, such as redoing the parking lot there and building a family fitness center on the back of the pool deck, the Tennessean reported.
The private club, which has 627 members, sits on 215 acres and includes an 18-hole, par-71 golf course, large swimming pool, multiple meeting and banquet rooms, a pro shop and fitness facility, the Tennessean reported.
