The $1.3 million renovation features a zero-depth entry pool, a mushroom fountain, resort-style water slide, and a separate new splash wading pool. The building also houses a full-service poolside café and bar, new locker facilities, and a breezeway connecting the center with the tennis facilities.
On March 28, the property’s Grille Room will showcase its new modern decor, full service dine-at bar, wine lockers, and contemporary menus. The club has also named Michael Meffe as Executive Chef in conjunction with the opening.
Palo Alto Hills Golf & Country Club in Palo Alto, Calif., will remove diseased Monterey pines before moving on to a comprehensive renovation. Sylvania (Ohio) Country Club and Kenosha (Wis.) Country Club will both be restored with the aid of aerial photography.
The club is aiming to transform into a spot for the whole family, with plans for an aquatic center with pool house, remodeled basketball and tennis courts, and a golf course redesign.
