People who live in glass houses…

The clubhouse windows and exterior doors are now almost entirely installed.  Here is a photo of the folding glass walls in the new casual dining space. 


It is beautiful to behold, despite the unfinished surroundings.  With all of the new and larger windows, the clubhouse is going to be so inviting. 

We have not yet talked much about the course restrooms. There were some unexplained permitting delays but once resolved the restrooms have been going up practically overnight. Here are some picture of the restrooms at number 6.




In the meantime it is business as close to usual as we can make it. In the picture below you can see the carts parked at the golf shop trailer, golfers putting on the practice green and the clubhouse transforming in the distance. 

Crane in action

The crane has arrived today to load the new air conditioning equipment onto the recently completed flat roof space. 



Along the back side of the clubhouse you can see the roof extension on the Foundation Cafe. Now you will be out of the elements as you place and pick up your orders. 

“How wet I am, how dry I’ll be…”🎶

Ok, the song is backwards but we have reached the point in construction where all the rain that poured in when we didn’t have walls or a roof needs to be removed so drywall can go up. 


This portable air conditioner is connected to the windows at the ladies locker room and is drying out the room so interior work can begin.  This is just one of several in place. 


Looking into the golf shop, which was never without roof, you can see the walls have been insulated and if you look out the back window (on the left) you will see the roof tiles sitting on the cart barn and already installed on the pool cabana. 


The dining room windows are also going in, along with the door frames. 


Here you can see the French door frames on the old card rooms.  An air conditioner is standing by to start drying out that space. 

How many guys does it take to…

They are pulling wires into the electrical room inside the clubhouse today.  Apparently it is very hard work.  Watch this video:

I am hoping the video uploads to this blog.  In case it doesn’t, there are four very strong men counting to three and heaving as if they are in a tug-of-war competition.  They count to three, heave, take a break, and then do it again.  Over and over.  There is radio communication with workers on the other end so everyone knows when the pulling will commence.

The office is a sea of wires coming from every direction.

We love to see the progress.

Almost dried in 

Took some pictures of the clubhouse today with the drone to show some of the roof work being done. The building is close to being “dried” in. 

Here are the new dormers on the front of the building above the locker rooms. 

The cart barn and the pool cabana got a new roof as well. All ready for the tiles to be laid out. 

The bare plywood area in the middle is the new flat roof area that will house all of the air conditioning equipment. There’s going to ba a lot of equipment up there! 

This is the new dormer window above the outside dining area. Very impressive. 

This shot is straight up above the gold tee on #1. It gives you a good view of the whole new roof line of the back of the clubhouse. The roofers are removing the old roofing tiles and waterproofing tar paper, then putting on new tar paper in sections. This way they can do as best they can to keep as much water out of the building. That’s a tall challenge right now as its raining almost daily. 


The golf course is in great shape as well. Right now we are lowering the roughs, so they’re a little brown-ish. Nonetheless, lots of compliments from the recip clubs. 

The new perimeters of the greens are coming in nicely as well. Next wk during the closure the remaining back 9 hole will be completed. This will give us enough time to get them all grown in before the winter golfing season. 

Pay no attention to that clubhouse behind the curtain 


I got a peek today of the backside of the clubhouse from inside the green fence. Wow, it’s really starting to look like the architects’ renderings.  


Moving over to look at the south wall you can see the golf shop windows behind the lift and the new opening for the cart barn. 


And here’s the view of the south entry from outside. 

Happy July 4th weekend everyone. We are at the three-month mark since the clubhouse shut down.
