Churchville, New York
The two story structure tucks itself into the ridge of the drumlin that bisects the Championship eighteen hole golf course. A drumlin is a mound of glacial till having its long axis in the direction of the glacial striation. The building features timbered covered porches reaching out to the golf course. The base of the building and porch piers are built of rock worn smooth by the grinding action of the receding glaciers. The flooring materials and the landscaping around the building reinforce the feeling of the golf course being integrated with the building. The building flows with the contours at the edge of the drumlin while it overlooks the greens of the ninth and eighteenth holes.
The ground floor level houses a two story timbered entry, the pro shop, golf cart storage for 40 carts, a caddy station, management offices, storage, and bag storage. A wide timbered stair leads guests to a men’s and women’s locker rooms, a tavern and events room on an upper level. The upper level also contains a kitchen and grill. The tavern features timber framed cathedral ceilings, a handsome wood bar, a gas fireplace, french doors opening onto a dining patio and a sweeping curved window wall facing the eighteenth and ninth greens. The upper level is at grade on the north side to allow access to the grill and bathrooms making the turn.
The building is 5,400 square feet on each of the two levels.
