The York, Pa. club cut the ribbon for a reopening of its 19th Hole dining venue, which has been renamed “Bistro of the Green” and given a full-service kitchen. An irrigation system upgrade and new practice green were also part of phase one. The project’s second phase will improve greens and introduce a year-round practice facility.
Out Door Country Club in York, Pa., held a ribbon-cutting on June 11 to reveal part of its new facelift, the York Dispatch reported.
The private course is undergoing a two-phase, $2.35 million project to bring some of the club’s amenities up to date and create a more family-friendly atmosphere, the Dispatch reported.
“The ribbon cutting is to introduce the renovation of our 19th Hole, renamed to the ‘Bistro on the Green,’ ” club President Michael Zambito told the Dispatch prior to the ceremony. “That included a full infrastructure and addition of a full-service kitchen in that area.”
Out Door CC also upgraded its irrigation system on the golf course and installed a new practice green as part of the first phase, the Dispatch reported.
The second phase of the club makeover will include improvements to the greens on the golf course, as well as introducing a brand-new, state-of-the-art practice facility, the Dispatch reported. The new practice facility will allow members to practice their golf game in any conditions and during any season, and also give teaching pro Jason Gebhart the chance to give lessons year-round.
“It is a building that has open bays that the doors will open up,” Zambito said. “It will enable people to practice their golf no matter what the weather is—inclement weather, winter time, or rain.”
The money for the renovations came from reserves at the club and received an 87 percent approval by the membership, according to Zambito.
A grand reopening event is planned at the club for June 19, the Dispatch reported.
