Myers Park Country Club has a long history as a neighborhood club, but the aging clubhouse needed an upgrade and facelift to meet the needs of the growing membership. The main goals of the project were to add covered outdoor dining, renovate the family dining room and men’s locker room, and expand and renovate the a la carte kitchen and the upper-level special event spaces.
To accomplish these goals, the designers added covered verandas with custom architectural columns that conceal sunscreen systems. Glass railings were used on the upper-level verandas to maximize the view of the golf course.
Other changes included an adult tavern and dining room with an adjacent wine room to double the previous capacity; multipaneled doors in the dining area that open onto the veranda; a family dining room with an open display kitchen; and the Golfer’s Grille, which also has a veranda.
The ballroom was renovated to include an adjacent special events room that opens onto an exterior covered space. The men’s locker room was expanded, a pool snack bar was added, and an event lawn with firepits was created.
All of the incandescent lighting was replaced with energy-efficient LEDs. All of the water systems were replaced with more efficient water-saving models. The entire rear façade of the clubhouse now has energy-efficient insulated windows, which let in much more natural light than before. The powered sunshades on the verandas provided added comfort and reduce building heat gain by blocking direct sunlight during some hours of the day.
