Construction on the new 25,000 sq. ft. “Villa Ravenna” began in July 2020. The wine cellar features an extensive collection from around the world, while the adjoining wine grotto features a hand-built, barrel-vaulted masonry ceiling, reminiscent of Italian architecture.
The Club at Ravenna in Littleton, Colo. has opened its new 25,000 sq. ft. “Villa Ravenna” clubhouse, capping an eight-year program of improvements.
“Villa Ravenna is our crown jewel – the fulfillment of our multi-year plan to transform Ravenna into a full-service, top-tier private golf club ranked among the best private clubs in Colorado and across America,” said Kevin Collins, owner, president and CEO.
Construction began in July 2020. The clubhouse blends Italian old-world-style, casual elegance and cutting-edge technology. It opened to members in July 2022.
While meeting all of Ravenna’s practical needs, the new building also generates an elegant, unpretentious and friendly ambience. By design, its interior is bathed in rich textures and colors, accented by iron and crystal fixtures, imported marble, commissioned mosaics and frescoes. The frescoes adorn the main dining room while the mosaic, in the style of sixth-century Ravenna, is displayed in the wine cellar.
The cellar features an extensive collection from around the world curated by the club’s European-trained sommelier. Next to the wine cellar, the wine grotto features a hand-built, barrel-vaulted masonry ceiling, reminiscent of Italian architecture — a memorable setting for any special occasion.
The clubhouse sports the latest in digital technology. Ravenna’s own app enables members to book weekend tee times and head to the greens. Outside, Toptracer Range technology revolutionizes the driving range experience.
“In short, Villa Ravenna cultivates an enriched private club membership experience worthy of attracting new members, hosting prestigious events and creating lifelong memories,” said Collins.
