The Springfield, Ohio property plans to start with lunch business in the next few weeks while adding a commercial kitchen and getting up to speed with a dinner menu. The club is also in the process of doubling the size of its banquet facility to handle up to 250 people.
Windy Knoll Golf Club in Springfield, Ohio is adding a year-round restaurant in the next few months, the Dayton (Ohio) Business Journal reported.
General Manager Dave Duffey said the plan is to start with lunch business in a few weeks while adding a commercial kitchen and getting up to speed with a dinner menu that will feature items such as steak and seafood, the Business Journal reported.
The new restaurant will seat 60 to 80 people and be open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday. “It will be a nice casual bar and grill,” Duffey said.
Until now, the course only served a light menu geared at golfers. The club also is in the process of doubling size of banquet facility to handle up to 250 people, the Business Journal reported.
Windy Knoll stirred up interest around the country last year when it bought two Neoteric Golf hovercrafts for use as golf carts. The hovercraft—in which golfers get chauffeured by club staff—are in big demand for upcoming outings and VIP packages. Golfers are not be able to drive the craft because of they are difficult to operate, even with training, and cost nearly $60,000 each, the Business Journal reported.
