The clubhouse enhanced and enlarged what was already one of the best outdoor dining spaces in New Jersey, sitting immediately adjacent to the 18th green complex. It has become an amazing lunch spot to enjoy a meal and watch players approaching the 18th green. The interior has been completely updated to maintain a timeless aesthetic while capturing the transitional feel of a today’s clubhouse. An open atrium was added to the center of the main dining room to connect the space to the new second floor dining room, ensuring that the membership never feels divided. A second bar was added to the upper-level dining room and a wine wall was added to be a central design element of the building. Both locker rooms were completely updated to compliment the work done on the to the other member areas of the Clubhouse.
The distinctive exterior design of the clubhouse successfully maintained the heritage of the building while establishing a distinct architectural identity.
Echo Lake Country Club's Clubhouse was successfully updated to maintain the history of our 100-year-old building while updating every space to optimally appeal to and serve the diverse membership of today, a fitting centerpiece for a premier family friendly country club.
Club House HistoryEcho Lake Country Club's Clubhouse was built in 1918 high on a bluff overlooking Echo Lake. It was constructed to serve as the social hub for the golf course famed golf course architect, Donald Ross completed on the current site in 1913. With the original Clubhouse serving as the core of the structure, there were numerous somewhat disconnected additions over the next 100 years.
After completing a renovation of the golf course led by Reese Jones, the Club turned its attention to the Clubhouse. With more than 80% of our membership living within 2 miles of the Club, the Clubhouse is a vibrant hub of social activity. To support that community usage, the Club embarked upon a full renovation of every aspect of the Clubhouse. It was important to maintain the heritage of the building while updating it for today's members, cohesively establishing a shingle style architecture for the building, and updating the Clubhouse to serve our members for decades to come. Among the many improvements, a second-floor dining room was added with an outdoor deck featuring the spectacular view of both the Manhattan skyline and our Donald Ross golf course.
The renovation has made the Clubhouse the true centerpiece of our campus.
