“Reinvention” Project will commence next year
The Country Club at Castle Pines—a private, member-owned club and a centerpiece of The Village at Castle Pines—will celebrate the holidays by announcing member approval of an extensive multimillion-dollar reinvention project.
The undertaking will bring stylish new dining and social features to the clubhouse, as well as cliffside amenities to include pools, fitness, paddle tennis, pickleball and tennis. The club will also add an indoor/outdoor golf performance center to its already expansive 20-acre practice facility.
Already boasting a world-class championship Jack Nicklaus Signature course and award-winning golf shop featuring the 2019 Colorado PGA Private Merchandiser of the Year, the member-owned private club has had several additions and renovations since opening in 1986.
“A Total Member Experience”
The club’s most recent renovation of note was the 2012 addition of an expansive wrap-around dining-room patio with views of Pikes Peak, Devil’s Head and the Front Range.
The new clubhouse plans call for the dining room and patio to expand once again to feature an exclusive dining space capable of larger functions, “where members and their guests will enjoy a modernly rustic but modern indoor/outdoor experience that just can’t be duplicated,” according to a press release.
“We are very excited about starting off 2020 with the mandate to create new amenities and improvements that elevate the total member experience for the entire family” the club’s Chief Operating Officer Dave Whalen said. “This is an exciting new chapter for The Country Club at Castle Pines and we can’t wait to offer our members and their guests a world class experience beyond golf and dining among the most picturesque landscape in all of Denver.”
The plans also include an infinity-edge pool with adult and children’s environments directly overlooking the mountains. Members soon will enjoy poolside dining and drinks from the new warming hut that will also feature fitness and social space for viewing the competition on the 4 new paddle tennis courts.
“The members are very excited about all the coming improvements,” said Larry Woods, President of the club’s Board of Directors. “There has always been a sense of pride among the community in the club, the golf course and the wide range of benefits and amenities offered here. The experiences of the past year and a half have only strengthened that pride and I expect it will grow even stronger as we all take advantage of the newest amenities.”
The Country Club at Castle Pines is the latest private Colorado country club engaged in upgrading its clubhouse and facilities—a trend driven by the need for all-encompassing services, family-friendly amenities, increased programming and “experience-oriented” environments.
The last five years have seen dozens of clubs invest heavily in improvements. Among the more notable: Morrison’s Red Rocks Country Club doubled the size of its clubhouse; The Ranch Country Club in Westminster has pumped nearly $7 million into updating its facility since 2016; Columbine Country Club near Littleton spent more than $25 million on its new 60,000-square-foot clubhouse; and just down the hill from The Country Club at Castle Pines, Castle Pines Golf Club—the erstwhile home of The International—has put the finishing touches on a major clubhouse renovation. Greeley Country Club’s $7.85 million facility upgrade will debut next summer, and Cherry Hills Country Club is in the proposal stage for a significant clubhouse expansion.
