Pinetop Country Club in Pinetop, Arizona, recently unveiled its newly renovated golf course clubhouse during a July 17th grand reopening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony. The $3.75 million projects was completed in June and focused on updating and expanding the golf course clubhouse, which was originally built in 1965.
The renovated golf course clubhouse now has a dramatic entry, open-air dining, all-new restaurant equipment, a high-performance pizza kitchen, and a beautiful redesign of the dining and lounge spaces. The redesigned dining room has been expanded and now overlooks the newly-expanded lower patio through a wall of retractable window panels to provide a true indoor/outdoor dining experience. The dining room has new comfortable, soft seating areas; a redesigned open beam ceiling that maintains the alpine feel of the historic golf course clubhouse; a new climate control system; improved audio-video and lighting technology for dining and social events; and enlarged restrooms. The addition of a new performance kitchen expands and enhances the club’s culinary offerings. The new open concept dining feature integrates into the dining room, providing a sense of excitement for diners and enhancing the feel and interaction during their culinary experience.
The redesigned lounge offers a repositioned central bar to provide more seating and take advantage of the golf course views; a reimagined outdoor terrace experience with double door access from the lounge; an adjacent room with additional seating, TV’s and shuffleboard, and open access to the dining room.
The aforementioned patio has also been expanded in both width and length, and the new higher roof design fully maximizes the views and outdoor dining experience. The patio provides easy access to the putting green and lawn activity space for further enjoyment. Seating capacity has also been expanded for outdoor dining and access has been improved between the lounge, dining room, and lounge patio.
The golf course clubhouse renovation project was voted on and approved by Pinetop Country Club members in August 2020. Construction began in October 2020, with a majority of the construction work taking place during the winter and spring. During the reopening celebration, the club recognized and honored past club presidents, donors to the Next Generation Founders Club, and those who helped with the completion of the project, including Art Porter, member-project manager; Board Members; Redden Construction, the general contractor for the project; and numerous other members and vendors. The evening celebration included culinary creations, wine tasting, and live music.
“Pinetop Country Club has been my home in the mountains for over 30 years,” said Pinetop Country Club Board President Andy Munter. “I am so grateful for our Club and for the founders of our Club who had the foresight and the commitment to make Pinetop Country Club a reality. I sometimes wonder how they would feel to know that thousands of members and guests have shared the joy of this wonderful place they created. Today, with the completion of our golf course clubhouse renovation, our members have made it possible for future generations to bring their friends and family to this amazing place. Thank you to everyone who helped us on our journey to create a path for our next generation of Pinetop Country Club members.”
