Dignitaries and Club Officials Gather for Official Kick-Off
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (May 9, 2018) – The $11.5 million enhancement program at The Reserve, the Coachella Valley’s premier private golf and luxury lifestyle club, kicked off on Tuesday with a ceremonial groundbreaking. The project includes a total restyling of the clubhouse and modernizing the infrastructure of the award-winning Tom Weiskopf-Jay Morrish golf course.
The event brought together local dignitaries and club officials, including Indian Wells Mayor Kimberly Muzik; City Council Members Richard Balocco, Ted Mertens, Ty Peabody and Dana Reed; City Manager Wade McKinney; and William Lane, President of the Board of Governors of The Reserve.
“I have lived full time in this wonderful Valley for more than 30 years and visited many country clubs and their facilities, but The Reserve is so very special, a true hidden jewel in our wonderful city, Indian Wells,” said Mayor Muzik, who kicked off Tuesday’s ceremony.
During the champagne toast, Lane added, “The support of our membership and the local community is so encouraging, and we’re thrilled to get the project underway. These improvements will enhance club life for our current and future members.”
Both the clubhouse and golf course projects are being supervised by Michael P. Kelly, General Manager of The Reserve, in conjunction with project manager Kevin Bearie of Bearie Construction, Inc., based in Yucaipa. R.C. Construction Services, Inc. of Rialto is responsible for the renovation.
The transformation of the clubhouse includes a complete enhancement of its interiors, new dining and entertainment experiences, including expanded outdoor terraces, multipurpose alfresco kitchen, extensive new bar and casual spaces, improved special event areas, all which provide for more gathering and socializing opportunities. The club’s magnificent elevated Valley views of surrounding mountain ranges and golf course will be highlighted with these changes and outdoor additions.
The golf course project is of equal importance, with a goal of preserving premium fairway turf conditions and the optimum quality of the bentgrass greens. The focus will be on new irrigation systems and water distribution, as well as reducing the amount of water used. No alterations are planned for the unique “21-hole” Weiskopf-Morrish design, an 18-hole championship routing plus a loop of three “trophy holes” for play and practice.
The club offers golf and social memberships for both residents of The Reserve and non-residents seeking to enjoy the amenities, events and activities, personalized service and genuine camaraderie the members admire and value. Memberships include equity and non-equity, along with a membership for individuals between the ages of 21 and 49.
