Projects currently being considered include renovating and expanding the restaurant and patio space, new on-course cart paths, golf course bunker renovations, remodeling of locker rooms, ballroom and meeting space renovations, and the addition of a fitness center.
Westmoreland Country Club in Export, Pa., is exploring a number of golf course restoration and club improvement projects, following the sale of 65 acres of the club’s land.
“The land sale and upcoming improvements are part of our long-term plan to grow membership and be a healthy and sustainable club,” said General Manager Aaron Green. “We will soon be meeting with our Board and communicating to the membership our plans for implementing improvement projects.”
Added club President Randy Galm: “This is an exciting time to be a member of Westmoreland Country Club. The recent land sale will enable the club to make a number of major improvements to the clubhouse and continue to improve the Dick Wilson-designed golf course. We are looking at updating and expanding a number of club amenities aimed at further enhancing the member experience.”
Club improvement projects currently being considered at Westmoreland include, but are not limited to, these initiatives:
- Renovating and expanding the restaurant and patio space
- New on-course cart paths
- Golf course bunker renovations
- Remodeling of locker rooms
- Ballroom and meeting space renovations
- The addition of a fitness center
In addition to its 18-hole, Dick Wilson-designed championship golf course, the property includes an expansive practice facility, three Har-Tru tennis courts, two pickleball courts, a heated swimming pool with designated lap lanes, a bar & grill, a banquet room with seating for up to 350 guests, and a large outdoor patio.
Westmoreland’s clubhouse and grounds are open to the public for limited golf outings, weddings, corporate events, private parties, and more.
The former 27-hole facility became an 18-hole course over five years ago, when the former Blue 9 course was closed.
Originally built in 1954, Westmoreland Country Club has hosted US Open qualifiers and numerous Western Pennsylvania and Tri-State PGA events.
The club announced that it would be managed by Troon Privé, the private club division of Troon, in February 2016 (http://clubandresortbusiness.com/2016/02/troon-manage-westmoreland-cc/).
