The Thomas Group Realty team had the opportunity to preview the upcoming upgrades to the Haile Golf & Country Club in Haile Plantation; Head Golf Professional Kyle Caudill and Membership Director Evan Walker walked us through the renovation plan.
The clubhouse will largely remain the same except some changes to the color scheme while the restaurant and back patio will be greatly transformed.
The restaurant/banquet area will be opened up, making more room for socialization between guests, and a separate meeting/dining room will be available for private meetings.
The bar will be upgraded to an U-shape allowing for 16 seats rather than the current 8 seats – this will surely please the Happy Hour crowd as the Club has wonderful Happy Hour specials for members. The bar will also have a beautiful wine display.
The space itself will be updated with a new color scheme, updated light fixtures and finishes and with added features to enhance acoustics. There will be a special “Smart” table with technology to browse the Web and more.
Dining hours at the restaurant will be expanded and the Club hopes that enhanced dining services will allow them to use more local produce and work with local vendors. The restaurant/banquet area is available for rent to members.
The back patio will be transformed with additional seating, TV’s under the awning and a big fire pit.
The Club hopes to begin construction in the summer and complete the project by Labor Day. Members should still be able to enjoy the club’s amenities including dining during construction, as most services will only be down temporarily.
The Haile Golf & Country Club is a full-service golf course with professional trainers on staff. They have over 960 members, and membership is not exclusive solely to residents of Haile Plantation, but to all residents in the greater Gainesville metro area. There are five levels of membership – some include additional amenities like access to the fitness center, pool area and tennis courts. As members of ClubCorp, members may enjoy Club benefits in other ClubCorp courses across the nation. For more information on membership, visit the Haile Golf & Country page.
