The Reserve Club Undergoes $11.5M Project

To commemorate its 20th anniversary, the Indian Wells, Calif., property will begin a $10 million clubhouse renovation in mid-May that will expand outdoor terraces, while adding a multipurpose al fresco kitchen, new bar, and improved special event areas. Work on the golf course’s irrigation system is already underway.

To commemorate its 20th anniversary, The Reserve Club in Indian Wells, Calif., is undergoing an $11.5 million renovation campaign that includes a total restyling of the clubhouse and modernizing the infrastructure of the award-winning Tom Weiskopf-Jay Morrish golf course.

While initial work on the golf course is underway, the $10 million clubhouse renovation starts in mid-May. A gala re-opening celebration is planned for December.

“The goal for our enhancement of the clubhouse is to preserve the appealing lifestyle at The Reserve,” said Robert J. Lowe, co-founder of The Reserve Club. “We have a culture centered upon the feeling of community. It is important to ensure the club be viewed as an extension of a member’s home.”

The transformation of the clubhouse includes a complete enhancement of its interiors, new dining and entertainment experiences including expanded outdoor terraces, multipurpose al fresco kitchen, extensive new bar and casual spaces, improved special event areas, all which provide for more gathering and socializing opportunities. This enhancement concept was designed to take advantage and highlight the club’s views of the surrounding mountain ranges and golf course.

The existing Tuscan-style architecture will be maintained throughout the new design, while updating the aesthetics and functionality of the facility. That includes replacing furniture with a mix of modern and traditional pieces, timeless flooring, fixtures, and unique artwork.

The golf course project is of equal importance with a goal of preserving premium fairway turf conditions and the quality of the bentgrass greens. The focus will be on irrigation and water distribution, as well as reducing the amount of water used. No alterations are planned for the unique “21-hole” Weiskopf-Morrish design—an 18-hole championship routing plus a loop of three “Trophy Holes” for play and practice.                             

Both the clubhouse and golf course projects are being supervised by General Manager Michael P. Kelly, in conjunction with project manager Kevin Bearie of Bearie Construction, Inc., based in Yucaipa.

The club offers golf and social memberships for both residents of The Reserve Club and non-residents seeking to enjoy the amenities, events and activities, personalized service and genuine camaraderie the members admire and value.
