Kingwood, Tex. – Kingwood Country Club at The Clubs of Kingwood, a member of the ClubCorp family of clubs and the heart of the Kingwood community, recently held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the beginning of a multimillion-dollar renovation project.
When completed, the newly transformed clubhouse will feature two contemporary and casual dining facilities, a bar and grill featuring food inspired by Texas flavors, a new outdoor patio complete with fire tables for relaxing or celebrating after a round of golf or tennis, and the addition of a high-tech media lounge and spectacular new outdoor covered patio. The reinvention also includes a new golf pro shop and outdoor pavilion for golf tournaments and special events.
The project is expected to be complete in late summer 2012.
“We are very excited about this renovation project,” said Patrick Pettit, general manager. “The ‘reinvented’ clubhouse – with all the modern and fun new amenities and features – will greatly enhance the private club experience for members of all ages and allow us to offer even more value to our members and guests.”
The Clubs of Kingwood now offers two new membership opportunities – O.N.E. (Optimal Network Experiences), a program that combines a comprehensive array of club, community and world benefits, and the Young Executive program. By choosing to participate in the O.N.E., the member receives 50 percent off à la carte dining at The Clubs of Kingwood, access to ClubCorp’s family of clubs in the local community, which includes more than 13 properties, and complimentary golf and dining privileges when traveling to ClubCorp’s network of more than 200 private clubs with additional access to more than 700 hotels, restaurants, resorts and entertainment venues.
