The Michigan club completely redesigned and redecorated the interior of the clubhouse and lake house, expanded the terrace and pool deck, added a new pro shop and purchased new sailboats and gym equipment, including Peloton bikes. The facilities reconstruction follows a complete revamp of the golf course in 2012.
Orchard Lake (Mich.) Country Club completed a $7.1 million renovation of a 59,000 sq.-ft. clubhouse and nearby 6,000 sq.-ft. lake house. This project represents the first Michigan country club facility redesigned by C2 Limited Design Associates.
The transformation is intended to enhance the member experience and create a more fluid connection between the indoor amenities and the shores of Orchard Lake, while restoring the original intent of the architects’ vision for the club.
Among the upgrades are a completely redesigned and redecorated interior of the clubhouse and lake house, an expanded terrace and pool deck, a new pro shop and the purchase of new sailboats and new gym equipment, including Peloton bikes.
“Orchard Lake Country Club is squarely focused on creating a destination space for family experiences. The renovation will provide new opportunities for members to take full advantage of our grounds … from golf, sailing and paddle boarding to gathering around a bonfire or enjoying cuisine created by our exceptional chefs. Members have invested in the club experience to benefit the future of a growing membership,” said Peter Swick, COO and General Manager of Orchard Lake Country Club.
The facilities reconstruction follows a complete revamp of the golf course in 2012.
“The renovated spaces and amenities are transforming the membership experience at Orchard Lake Country Club,” said Nick Nicolay, President, Orchard Lake Country Club Board of Directors. “We are consistently focused on providing opportunities for members to create truly distinctive memories and our new clubhouse and lake house offer an impeccable foundation. We continue to invest in projects that position the club as an unparalleled space for fun and leisure, now and into the future.”
“Orchard Lake Country Club was C2 Limited’s first project in Michigan,” said Craig Smith, Founding Partner & Co-Creative Director, C2 Limited Design Associates. “We have built and renovated private clubs, hotels and resorts all over the world. Orchard Lake Country Club is unlike any club we’ve collaborated with. The natural beauty, coupled by an open, fluid design appointed with the finest details, will offer members an exclusive experience that joins luxury and comfort.”
The project was managed by Ronnisch Construction based in Royal Oak, Mich. C2 Limited Design Associates, which has designed private clubs across the world including Greenbrier Sporting Club (White Sulphur Springs, W.V.), Westchester Country Club (Rye, N.Y.) and Congressional Country Club (Bethesda, Md.), served as the conceptual master planner and interior designers on the project.
