The Shorehaven Golf Club underwent a two-phased transformation encompassing a complete renovation of the main clubhouse and surrounding site, the pool house and the tennis pavilion. The project challenge was to update the Club’s facilities to better serve the existing members and attract new membership.
The design solution involved changing the Colonial/Neo-Georgian architectural style to a New England Costal style. As a result, the main clubhouse was fully reconstructed utilizing the existing structural foundations and wood framing. The arrival court and lobby provide a distinct sense of arrival and improved vehicular circulation.
The main dining room was completely renovated and looks out onto a new stone terrace, which features an outdoor bar, flexible seating and a fire pit. The grill room was renovated, and a new outdoor seating terrace was added with views of the 18th green and the Long Island Sound. The second floor of the clubhouse features multiple conference rooms with a viewing terrace that overlooks the golf course. The lower level of the clubhouse was built out to include new locker rooms, a fitness center and golf simulator space.
The Club’s ancillary buildings were also renovated: the tennis pavilion was expanded to include restrooms, a covered viewing patio and a pro-shop; the pool house was replaced to include a full-service kitchen and bar, snack bar, recreation room, locker rooms, lifeguard and first aid facilities and outdoor terrace seating space; and a replacement camp building to house summer camp services and paddle tennis amenities.
