The Duluth, Ga., property is expanding its clubhouse restaurant, adding an outdoor patio, modernizing the Sports Center, adding a full-service healthy cafe, and adding poolside furniture and cabanas. The property will be renovating each of the three nine-hole courses at a time, so members will have access to 18 holes at all times.
TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, Ga., is launching an improvement project with the overarching goal of modernizing amenities to improve member experiences.
The scope of work, which is scheduled to span three years, will include:
- Golf Course
- Resurfaced greens, tees, fairways and rebuilt bunkers
- New state-of-the-art irrigation system for better coverage and turf health
- New and resurfaced cart paths
- Expansion of a club restaurant, the Golfer’s Grill, with construction of a covered outdoor patio overlooking the 18th green
- Sports Center
- Complete modernization of the Sports Center, updating interiors and finishes and upgrading existing locker rooms, while restructuring the 16,000-sq. ft. space to allow for more open cardio, strength and group exercise
- Addition of a full-service “healthy café,” offering a variety of organic, farm-fresh dining options after workouts
- Additions to the pool area including new poolside furniture with umbrellas, new poolside “resort style” cabanas and a new pool deck surface
“Everyone at TPC Sugarloaf is looking forward to the enhancements,” said General Manager Mike Maloney. “The clubhouse has always been at the heart of the community, and we want to make sure it stays that way. Additionally, we’re excited for our members to experience the enhanced playing conditions that the course improvements will provide to our existing championship layout. We believe that the commitment to invest in this club is a demonstration of our commitment to the members, the Sugarloaf development, and the Atlanta area.”
As with most major renovations, scheduling will be strategically coordinated to minimize disruption to membership, renovating each of the three nine-hole courses at a time so that members will have access to 18 championship holes of golf at all times. The course work is also being scheduled so that there will be minimal impact on the PGA TOUR Champions’ annual Mitsubishi Electric Classic.
The enhancement project is designed to pay homage to the property’s rich history without losing the “farmhouse” feel members have celebrated.
