Project Challenges and Outcomes


The goal of the project was to provide adequate overnight accommodations for the Club’s guests, primarily for when the Club hosts events.  


Each cottage incorporates four guest suites, offering sixteen new guest rooms in total.  Each furnished suite features a private sleeping area, full bathroom, and semi-private covered porch which overlooks the practice green and fairways beyond. Guest amenities include a common entry, corridor, and shared entertainment lounge, individualized with décor specific to each building. The new cottages are within walking distance to the main clubhouse but allows for personal golf cart parking alongside the covered porches.  

The guest cottages not only provide additional overnight accommodations for the Club and comfortable stays for its guests, but the design also relates to the established aesthetic of the various Club buildings, adding to a unified campus look.
