The St. Augustine, Fla. property will add a reception hall, grand event lawn, fire pit and social area, outdoor patio bar and deck overlooking the water. In addition, the existing restaurant and dining room will be completely renovated and the kitchen will be expanded. Completion of the project at the Billy Casper Golf-owned club is expected by the end of 2018.
St. Johns Golf & Country Club in St. Augustine, Fla. will undergo a $2.5 million clubhouse renovation and expansion, to be completed before the end of 2019, according to Billy Casper Golf, which owns the club.
The project includes the addition of a reception hall, grand event lawn, fire pit and social area, outdoor patio bar and deck overlooking the water. In addition, the existing restaurant and dining room will be completely renovated, and the kitchen will be expanded.
“We must keep learning and evolving to attract new members, all while instilling the faith our current members have in us,” said General Manager Ben Pasquith. “The renovation and expansion show we are serious about remaining a premier golf and special events destination in northeast Florida.”
The “Farmhouse Industrial” design of the planned renovation will tie in nicely with the club’s existing facilities, said Michele Brown, Principal & Director of Micamy Design Studio.
“Our goal is to transform the facility into a fun and exciting space that can be enjoyed by all,” said Brown. “The contemporary feel of the banquet hall and restaurant, combined with the open and fun event lawn and outdoor social spaces, will make it the perfect place to host a wedding, enjoy a dinner out, or relax after a round of golf.”
In November 2018, St. Johns G&CC completed a $300,000 renovation of its 18-hole, Clyde Johnston-designed golf course that included improvement of bunkers and the putting green and the addition of a new short-game practice facility.
Built in 2001, the golf course offers a playing experience centered around Florida wetlands, lakes, and towering pine trees.
“The renovations and expansion demonstrate our commitment to remaining the top golf and special-events destination in northeast Florida.” said Dan Zimmer, Vice President of Operations at Billy Casper Golf. “There is no other facility like it in the area.”
