Berkeley Hall Club Embarks on $5.1M Master Plan: Phase I
BLUFFTON, SC April 14, 2021 – With an exciting vision of the future, Berkeley Hall Club in Bluffton, SC, is embarking on Phase I of the private golf community’s Master Plan. The reimagined Clubhouse features construction of a 4-Seasons Veranda, a renovated Mixed Grille dining venue and kitchen upgrade, with upscale design that takes full advantage of panoramic golf course views. Refinements in the Grand Hall entry add to the welcoming ambiance and reflect the Club’s new casual, Lowcountry design.
Construction began with an April 12th groundbreaking, in preparation of the 4-Seasons Veranda. The nearly 5,000 square foot addition extends off the Grand Hall at an elevated, seamless level to provide year-round dining in a climate-controlled environment. Here, members can gather for casual dining any time of day. Whether enjoying drinks and light bites after a round or dining as the sun sets with views onto the North Course #9th and #18th holes.
The reimagined Mixed Grille will serve as the more formal dining venue to the 4-Seasons Veranda. The well-designed venues flow into one another for an expanded dining capacity, and the flexibility to accommodate larger Club gatherings and special events. With an influx of new members during this past year, Berkeley Hall’s membership is a growing one. One of their shared sentiments was the desire to find a forward-thinking community. Phase I demonstrated that commitment to club investment, and the response was overwhelmingly in favor.
“The time is now,” said Keith Patten, Board President. “Board and management are committed to meeting the evolving demands of our membership by investing in our future. Implementation of the Master Plan represents a cornerstone piece of our efforts to enhance the overall member experience.”
The exterior will be completed by Fall with full occupancy and use by Spring/Summer of 2022. The Clubhouse and its Mixed Grille, Tap Room bar bistro and Tuscan Wine Room will remain open for the majority of construction, allowing members to enjoy Club dining and amenities.
In tandem with Phase I, the Club’s two Fazio-designed golf courses are also seeing a return to their pristine original vision, with the direction of the Fazio Design group and Berkeley Hall’s Agronomy team.
“Phase I is an important aspect of assuring Berkeley Hall is in harmony with our membership,” said Adam Kushner, General Manager and COO. “Having just celebrated our 20th anniversary, we are excited by the exceptional vision Peacock + Lewis architects have brought to our Club, joined by Choate general contractors, as we usher in a new era at Berkeley Hall.”
One of America’s Top 100 Premiere Golf Communities, Berkeley Hall Club sets the standard for private communities with two signature Core Golf courses designed by world-renowned golf architect Tom Fazio. This golf experience is at the heart of one of the lowest density private clubs in the Southeast. Members enjoy a cultivated level of service with Jeffersonian-style Clubhouse, 33-acre golf practice and learning facility, spa & fitness center, racquet sports, and more.
