It also offers a high-tech simulation room, a weight room and a kitchen area.
A striking angular roofline, glass curtainwall and a softly glowing Spartan logo greet visitors at the entrance. Abundant glass wraps around an outdoor putting green and provides natural outdoor views. Cherry wood ceilings extend in a single plane from exterior soffits directly into interior planes. Large-format porcelain tile withstands golf cleats and bags.
The lounge features spaces to study, eat, and congregate. Sophisticated locker rooms have wood lockers, aerated storage, and technology ports. The 5,000-square-foot indoor putting and chipping green features multiple terrain simulations that can be regraded to offer limitless training possibilities throughout the year.
