Updates to the 5,600-sq. ft. event space include a new 800-sq. ft. Pavilion Suite, a 25,000-sq. ft. Event Lawn, expanded patio, vestibule, 22 date palm trees wrapped in LED lights, and pull-down screens to cut back on glare.
Indian Wells (Calif.) Golf Resort recently completed a renovation and expansion project on its 5,600-sq. ft. Event Pavilion.
Owned by the City of Indian Wells and managed by Troon Golf, the resort hosts between 50 and 75 events in the pavilion each year. With the renovation and expansion, the club expects that number to increase in the years to come.
The Event Pavilion, which originally opened in January 2014 and has been a popular venue for weddings, receptions and corporate meetings, received numerous additions and upgrades during the renovation process, including:
- Added an 800-sq. ft. Pavilion Suite directly behind the Pavilion. The Pavilion Suite was designed with input from wedding planners and can be used as a bridal salon, a bridal party suite, a green room or a private room for executive meetings
- A 25,000-sq. ft. Event Lawn has been added directly east of the Pavilion with easy walkout access. The Event Lawn can host 700 for al fresco dining or more than 1,000 for a reception
- More than 850 sq. ft. has been added to the existing south-facing front patio. The larger patio presents views of the surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains and the Indian Wells Golf Resort clubhouse
- A new vestibule has been added to the west entrance of the Pavilion
- 22 date palm trees wrapped in LED lights were added to the surrounding space to provide ambient light for twilight and evening events
- Inside the Event Pavilion, pull-down screens have been added on all three windowed sides to cut natural-light glare during daytime meetings.
“The improvements to our Event Pavilion go directly to enhancing our core goal of providing the best possible experience to our guests on a daily basis,” said General Manager Steve Rosen. “We’re excited with how the renovation and expansion turned out and look forward to hosting many spectacular weddings and events.”
Indian Wells Golf Resort offers 36 holes of golf on the Celebrity and Players courses and a 53,000-sq. ft. clubhouse.
