Injecting energy into its facilities, amenities and membership mix has kept 122-year-old Greenville (S.C.) CC in step with the transformation of its namesake city.
The 44,000-sq. ft. structure will replace the current clubhouse, and is slated for completion in early 2017. The two-story, Southern-style building will include banquet and meeting facilities, a pub, dining areas, locker rooms, fitness facility, pro shop, and outdoor and terrace space.
An unidentified “new entity” plans to buy the club’s shares and reopen the property as the Country Club of Greenville. The club closed at the end of December 2014 for financial reasons.
The 90-year-old Brook Valley property in Greenville, N.C. will become the ninth Carolina property in Raleigh-based McConnell’s portfolio, and the new owner has pledged to make $2 million in improvements in the next two years. Hoakalei CC, in West Oahu, Hawaii, has an Ernie Els-designed golf course; it is being sold to the Hirakawa Shoji Group, which plans to start building a new permanent clubhouse within two years.
The existing structure will be torn down and replaced with a new 40,000-sq. ft. clubhouse that will include a kitchen, flexible event spaces, outdoor dining and family activities.
The second annual Club Holiday Drop-In and the first annual Reindeer Run resulted in more than $1,000 in cash, $450 in gift cards, and several boxes of Christmas and winter items donated to Safe Harbor by the club’s members and staff. Safe Harbor is an organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence in South Carolina through prevention, intervention and transformation.
