The main building will be expanded to provide permanent bathrooms, a full-service kitchen with new equipment, and men’s and women’s showers and small locker rooms. The breezeway between the building and temporary structure will be enclosed for additional comfort and privacy.
Floor, ceiling and window frame moulding, chair rails and other fixtures, features and equipment will be added to create both elegance and permanence. Guests will have the choice of relaxing in the refreshed interior or outdoors on one of Pound Ridge’s two alfresco seating and gathering areas.
“The end result will be a significantly more appealing and single integrated structure,” says Pound Ridge owner Ken Wang. “This is part of our long term plan to provide facilities and amenities commensurate with the quality of the golf course.”
According to Wang, Pound Ridge’s proximity to Wall Street and the financial community of Stamford, Greenwich and Norwalk area of Southern Connecticut leads to a high number of “business golfers” out for an efficient and enjoyable round.
“Having a comfortable spot to grab a quick shower, change of clothes and bite to eat, perhaps before returning to the office or an evening function, is important,” adds Wang. “The layout is also very walkable and those who carry or pull their clubs will appreciate the option of freshening up, post-round.”
The project is underway, and all work is expected to be completed by spring 2014.
