This is a project that creates a new clubhouse for Colgate University’s historic golf course, which is one of the top collegiate courses in the US and one of the most popular golfing venues in New York State. The design includes a restaurant, a banquet room, private dining, a commercial kitchen, locker rooms, and a pro shop.
The proposed construction will be replacing an existing building for which renovation is impractical. The aesthetic experience of the new building invokes the charm of the previous building – which is very dear to the college and its trustees. The gabled roofs, white painted brick, and signature green shutters pay homage to the previous building, while also tripling its square footage, creating more outdoor spaces for dining and special events, and offering a greater visual connection to the golf course.
