Styled to resemble a stone and cedar tudor mansion, The Clubhouse is a grand, yet unobtrusive, structure that blends perfectly into its surroundings. A balcony oversees the first and eighteenth holes. The beautiful setting is further showcased as soon as visitors step inside. The floor of the entryway is fine ceramic tile. Overhead is an antique-finished chandelier, which gently illuminates the cherry accented woodwork and floor-to-ceiling columns. An artistically etched railing surrounds the foyer's circular staircase. Carved stone fireplaces in the entry hall and ballroom add flares of elegant warmth.
