Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa in Lexington, Ky., has completed the final stage of a multi-year improvement project that includes decor updates for The 19th Hole. Greencastle (Pa.) Golf Club opened its Fireside Pub on April 1, expanding seating and updating the menu.
Completing the final stage of a multi-year golf course improvement project, The 19th Hole at Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa in Lexington, Ky., is now open following a major makeover of the pre-existing golf lounge space.
Guests will find a refreshed and modernized atmosphere with updated furnishings, new bar and the addition of an outdoor patio.
“We are excited to bring an updated style to guests for socializing and relaxing before or after a round of golf or as another dining option for resort guests,” said Colin Gooch, PGA, Director of Golf. “The 19th Hole is more exciting and energetic than it was before, and the addition of outdoor seating adds to the new vibe.”
The $200,000 remodel features new decor throughout the club, golf shop, and locker rooms including new furniture, carpet, and flooring. The golf shop has been brightened with new energy efficient lighting. Additionally, new carpet and wallpaper have been installed throughout the entire golf shop and The 19th Hole. Golfers will also enjoy new tables and chairs for the guest seating area inside or outside, and refreshed locker rooms.
Open to the public as well as resort guests, The 19th Hole bar and grill serves casual fare and beverages. A spring menu is now available featuring local Kentucky fare. A new back bar design provides added functionality for service efficiency.
The Greencastle (Pa.) Golf Club opened its Fireside Pub on April 1, the Waynesboro, Pa., Record Herald reported.
“It’s not the same as it was years ago,” said General Manager Mike Porter. “This is the first of many phases.”
The newly renovated facility has the potential to have close to 50 people seated at a time. The Fireside Pub has an updated menu that carries items for each member of the family, the Record Herald reported.
“Even if you’re not a golfer, we want to cater to your needs,” said Porter. “We have a great atmosphere up here and views that you can’t beat to sit and have lunch.”
Also, Greencastle Golf Club can host a variety of larger groups in the downstairs facility, the Record Herald reported.
“We have had corporate companies come in, have breakfast, talk for a hour or so and then go out and play 18 holes of golf and then come back in and enjoy a bite to eat,” said Porter. ” In the past we have had birthday parties, baby showers and even retirement parties.”
In October 2015, Greencastle Golf Club acquired a liquor license. “Having this license has opened the door to a lot of options for us,” said Porter. “Golfers don’t have to worry about trying to bring beverages to the course now, we can supply their need here.”
With the opening of the Fireside Pub completed, Porter has his sights set on future plans, the Record Herald reported.
“If people support this project, we can expand,” Porter said. “We would like to put high-top tables and outdoor seating around the wrap-around porch and have live music in the evening times.”
With dining options always being a topic of discussion in Greencastle, Porter is hopeful that the Fireside Pub will become a popular destination, the Record Herald reported.
“We are trying to market to everyone and become on of the choices people think about when choosing a restaurant to eat at,” he said.
