Exceeding the expectation of membership
BY SCOTTIE TAYLOR IVERSON
As if Glenmoor Country Club doesn’t already offer every conceivable, thoughtful amenity, including a kid’s play room, the friendly private club is undergoing an extensive multi-million dollar patio and pool renovation. It will be a vacation-like experience upon completion.
Founded in 1984, the private country club is located in the heart of Cherry Hills Village with a Pete Dye championship 18-hole golf course, superb dining, tennis, fitness, swimming and events. It has long reflected the casual and inviting charm of Colorado making it an exceptional place that member families can truly call home away from home.
With the club’s pool facility at the end of its useful life and a significant amount of work needed simply to keep the pool operational, the club began a renovation project last fall that also included redesigning the dining patio, adding a new outdoor bar and updating the look and style of the pool. Early June is the projected date of completion – not only to update the existing facility, but to provide members and guests with a resort-style outdoor dining and pool atmosphere, so popular in Colorado. “The project is moving along well, despite the winter Denver has had,” said General Manager/Chief Operating Officer Garth Walker. “We may be finishing up some details last minute, but fully expect to have the pools and patio open in early June for the summer season. We believe the updated and improved facilities will enhance the club’s reputation as a premier family-oriented private club in Colorado.”
This is the first major renovation Glenmoor Country Club has undertaken since 2008 when the clubhouse was remodeled. That renovation included a display-style kitchen, new locker rooms, fitness room, massage rooms, kid’s activity room and a special banquet level for hosting events of all sizes. Since 2008, there have been several capital improvement projects such as adding a poolside cabana bar and grill, expansion of the kids’ activity room, new post tension surface tennis courts, addition of the Grand Event Lawn, and many more improvements to meet and exceed the expectation of membership.
The dozens of improvements and additions in this latest renovation include: new spill water feature from upper pool to lower pool, new waterfall feature from pool area to patio area, new permanent hard-wired cabanas, new pool furniture with chaise lounges, tables and conversation pit seating; new shaded trellis covered seating around the bar and concession, new outdoor bar on the east end of patio to allow al fresco bar service throughout the warm weather season and a new pergola for performances and awards ceremonies.
