Clubhouse Parking Project Pushed Back

The plans to repave the parking area has been pushed back a little to make way for the golf course and clubhouse improvement projects.  As anyone who has done work with heavy equipment, it takes its toll on pavement.  So, it’s prudent that this project be one of the last so that any damage done during these other projects can be minimized.

Clubhouse Renovation Planned

In the future, you’ll see a complete renovation of the interior of the Polo Golf & Country Club clubhouse.  At the end of the renovation of the main floor, the staff will undertake work on the downstairs office areas and the new fitness area.  As with any project, there’s going to be some inconvenience and mess, but Sequoia tells us that they think the result will be a “wow” for the members.  If you’d like to get an idea of the look coming our way, check out the website of the designer chosen for the job, Van Dresser Company.  Some of the projects that Glenna Greene and her colleagues have tackled include the expansion at TPC Sawgrass.

New Awnings at Tennis Courts

Some of the electrical issues at the tennis courts have now been repaired.  In addition, new awnings have been placed on the popular viewing areas above the tennis courts.  Plans to resurface the clay courts and the pool deck are still in place.  Some more furniture and cabanas will also be on the way around the pool as well.

Hey, it’s been 9 degrees here in Cumming.  Can’t we all dream of sun-drenched poolside drowsing?????

Snow Video / Slideshow around Polo

I took a quick walk (3 hours) around the Big Creek Greenway and Polo Golf & Country Club area called Polo Outdoors.  Here’s a video slideshow of my trip.

Polo Clubhouse Improvements Started

Sequoia Golf’s interior designer, Patti Agey has identified several projects which should have a quick impact on the look and feel of the Polo Golf & Country Club clubhouse.  So far, some of those that have been completed include the replacement of server carts, new cushions and a fresh coat of paint for the porch & back patio.  In addition, you’ll see some new plasma television along with new lighting and fans.

At the rear of the building, some of those mechanical and utility items have been screened to improve the looks of the clubhouse rear.

Probably most notably, those old fogged windows in the ballrooms have been replaced so that the beautiful views of the putting green, lake and golf course are unimpeded.

 

Polo Bunkers get some Love

As part of Sequoia Golf’s on-going improvement of the Polo Golf & Country Club golf course, the bunkers are being renovated using PermaBunker technology.  A nursery for the greens along with sod and drainage repairs are continuously being made to help the health of the golf course from tee box to green.  In addition, some tree pruning, trimming and clearing has been done to improve the views and playability of the course.

The cart paths are also scheduled for repairs as well, but only after the on-course work has been done as heavy equipment takes a toll on the paths.
