Pound Ridge Golf Club spent the winter spiffing up its clubhouse to bring the indoor amenities closer to the standards set by the demanding Pete Dye-designed golf course. The main building was expanded to provide permanent bathrooms, a full-service kitchen with new equipment, and men’s and women’s showers and small locker rooms. The breezeway between the building and the temporary structure was also enclosed.
Floor, ceiling, and window frame moldings; chair rails; and other fixtures, features, and equipment were added, too, in an effort to give the facility a more finished look. Golfers now have the choice of relaxing in the refreshed interior or outdoors on one of Pound Ridge’s two alfresco seating and gathering areas.
“The end result is a significantly more appealing and single, integrated structure,” says Pound Ridge owner Ken Wang. “This is part of our long-term plan to provide facilities and amenities commensurate with the quality of the golf course.”
According to Wang, Pound Ridge’s clientele includes a large number of “business golfers” who are looking for a place to freshen up after their round. “Having a comfortable spot to grab a quick shower, change of clothes, and a bite to eat, perhaps before returning to the office or an evening function, is important,” adds Wang. “The layout is also very walkable, and those who carry or pull their clubs will appreciate the option of freshening up post-round.”
