Clubhouse Development

Published: 11th February 2013

As recorded in the recent minutes of the Management Committee meetings on January 11th and January 24th the focus on clubhouse development has now reverted to upgrading the existing clubhouse, without any new major changes to the floor plan of the building. After considerable review of member feedback it is apparent there is no singular plan that is universally accepted. The Committee has now come to the conclusion that taking care of the existing clubhouse should be their primary focus.

By way of background, having examined and collated member feedback – both written and verbal – the committee assessed:

  • What the Majority of Members Do NOT Want
      Spike Bar
      Dining Room Extension
      Staircase partially blocking view of the course

  • What Members Do Want
      Retention of the existing feel of the clubhouse
      Brighter décor
      Changing Room upgrades
      Structural Survey
      Member input in upgrades

  • What Members Wanted/Suggested but Cannot be Accommodated for Financial or Practical Reasons
      Upstairs Bar


Changing Room Upgrades
  New/additional lockers
  Upgrade of shower and toilet facilities
  New carpet/tile flooring
  Painting & decoration

Bar Area
  New flooring – carpet and hardwood floors
  Paint and decorate in brighter colours
  New ceilings & lighting
  Remove trophy cabinet and replace with sliding partition wall
  New furniture – to be phased in with existing furniture
  New Bar
  TV cabinet

Lower Lounge
  New flooring – carpet and/or other
  New lighting
  Paint and decorate in brighter colours
  New trophy cabinets in alcove
  Remove lower bar and replace with wall
  New furniture – to be phased in with existing

Dining Room
  New flooring
  Additional furniture to replace old chairs and tables
  Painting and decoration

  Repair flooring
  New furniture

  New flooring
  Paint and decorate in brighter colours
  Activate fireplace

  New tiles
  Glass balustrade for wind protection
  New furniture

External Decoration of the Building

The above is obviously an ambitious list and needs more work in terms of cost estimates and other planning before any work commences. The Committee are aware that the Club is hosting the 2014 English Ladies Close Amateur Championships in May of 2014, which could have some bearing on certain parts of the refurbishment plans, i.e. Ladies changing rooms and Bar areas as a high priority.
