Elegant New TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse Makes Debut at THE PLAYERS Championship
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Clark Construction Group, LLC completed the new TPC Sawgrass clubhouse this spring, in time for the PGA TOUR’s annual PLAYERS Championship that took place at the club’s Stadium Course, May 7-13. The clubhouse replaces an outdated building with a larger facility with more amenities.
Clark served as the construction manager/general contractor for the demolition of the existing clubhouse and the construction of the elegant 77,000-square-foot clubhouse and related improvements. The construction, which was completed in only 11 months, started after the finish of THE PLAYERS in March of 2006, demolition of the existing building, and removal of approximately 8,000 cubic yards of unsuitable soil.
The new clubhouse was designed by Chapman Coyle Chapman Architects, of Marietta, Ga. The Mediterranean Revival-style building reflects the architecture of nearby historic St. Augustine. The clubhouse features banquet and meeting facilities, locker rooms, retail space, golf course management offices, and outdoor entertainment areas.
Clark also constructed the stucco retaining walls, ornamented in precast and cast aluminum railings, which frame the new, 11,000-square-foot lawn that overlooks the 9th and 18th holes of the Stadium Course designed by famed golf course architect Pete Dye. It has hosted THE PLAYERS since 1982.
