The tennis facility at the Charlotte, N.C., club received the award from the United States Tennis Association at a reception on September 1.

The tennis facility at Carmel Country Club in Charlotte, N.C., has been presented with the 2013 United States Tennis Association (USTA) Outstanding Facility Award.
Timmons Group, an ENR 500 Design Firm specializing in multi-discipline civil engineering, environmental and geospatial consulting services, was responsible for the design of a total renovation utilizing the club’s existing facility, with long-term maintenance in mind. Specific features included ten new clay courts, two asphalt courts as well as shade structures, spectator viewing areas, and landscape and hardscape features.
Facilities were judged on their overall layout and adaptation to site; excellence of court surface and lights; ease of maintenance; accommodations for players, spectators and press/officials; aesthetics; signage; landscape and hardscape; amenities such as casual seating for spectators, food services and social areas; and the facilities’ participation in USTA programs.
The Outstanding Facility Award was presented to the Carmel Country Club Tennis Facility on September 1, 2013 during a reception at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.
“We would like to congratulate Carmel Country Club on being a 2013 Outstanding Facility Award Recipient,” said Brian Crutchfield, Principal for Timmons Group’s North Carolina operations. “It was a pleasure to work with the club in achieving their vision for a first class tennis facility to serve their membership. Their commitment to quality as well as their attention to the small details will ensure that they have a premier tennis facility.”
