(Arvada, CO) – Golf Inc. Magazine’s July/August 2018 issue highlights the Clubhouses of the Year, honorees that are “great example of how members are embracing stylish, modern venues for socializing and family activities. And the ‘wow’ factor is a big part of the package.”
Arvada’s West Woods Clubhouse, which underwent a complete renovation in 2017 and re-opened to the public in April, was awarded 2nd place in the category of Public Renovation.
The magazine states, “There was one big problem with the old West Woods Clubhouse: It only had two bathrooms. And it’s not as if West Woods Golf Club is some sort of 9-hole muni. It sports 27 holes. One other factor drove the decision-making. The club is popular both with golfers and with nearby residents, because the area is not exactly hopping with other local amenities. So the city of Arvada deemed an upgrade to be not a luxury but a necessity. And it’s been a win-win for all involved.”
The West Woods Clubhouse remodel was the result of a City Council goal to create an upgraded facility in keeping with the activity levels of a 27-hole golf course. The 20,000 square foot building is “Refined Colorado Mountain” style with large areas of glass to provide panoramic views of the golf course and the mountains from the bar and restaurant. Guests can experience a new bar, a covered outdoor dining area, a golfers porch, and an overlook patio with a fire pit. The clubhouse also features a golf simulator room with state-of-the-art technology.
