Project Design 

Clubs face radically different market conditions than even 10 years ago. Membership sales and retention and club utilization decisions are very different today than when your club was likely built. 

Do your facilities meet your current and future needs? If you haven't recently renovated or added to your facilities, they probably do not. If you have renovated, how much attention did you pay to club operations and ROI vs aesthetics? How will club changes add to the Value Proposition for members while still maintaining healthy economics for the club? These essential questions are at the heart of your club's strategic plan.

Members look for contemporary food and beverage choices, and amenities that go beyond traditional golf club offerings. It is essential that your facility, programming and operations be fully integrated to offer members the lifestyle choices they seek from your club.

Brian Weaver is a Senior Associate and Hospitality Design Lead at ALT Architure. His strong focus in fitness, restaurant and hospitality projects brings a unique skill set and perspective to the changing nature of the golf and private club marketplace, where the club itself must operate profitably and become even more focused on social and large event amenities.

Project success requires an understanding of club organization, culture and financial position, and an ability to collaborate with club operations, key stakeholders and the membership at large during the planning stage, and with the club, vendor and build team during and after project construction. This collaboration is crucial to maximizing the value of the investment in the project, and requires a leadership role that goes far beyond that of a traditional club designer/architect.
