Choate Kicks Off Kiawah 2.0 with Cougar Point Clubhouse
April 3, 2018
Choate Construction Company already had boots on the ground when the grand unveiling event was held on March 21, 2018 for Kiawah 2.0. Kiawah Island Golf Resort (KIGR), led by President Roger Warren and Development Director Norm Engard, along with Program Manager Cliff McMackin of Sea Pines Resort Development, partners with Choate Construction to construct a total of eight stunning projects to be delivered by the upcoming PGA Tour Championship at KIGR in the spring of 2021.
During the unveiling event, KIGR President Roger Warren referred to these projects as the “next level” for the Kiawah Island resort community, also stating, “We feel these projects will be transformative for the future of this resort.”
Cougar Point Clubhouse is the first of the projects to kick off. Designed by world-renowned architectural team Robert A.M. Stern Architects, this first-class clubhouse comes to Cougar Point — one of five golf courses on the island. Located within Kiawah’s West Beach Village, the 28,000-SF clubhouse consists of steel and concrete and is clad with a variety of brick and fiber cement siding. High-end trim, soffits, and fascia adorn the exterior.
The inside of the clubhouse is equally as striking as the exterior with high-quality finishes including stained wood wall paneling, classic wainscot, and three-piece crown moulding enhancing each room. A bird’s-eye-view of the clubhouse reveals a pro shop, bar, restaurant, full-service kitchen, locker rooms, and a covered porch along the entirety of the building overlooking the golf course. The extended porch allows club guests and golf pros to view what golf.com has referred to as a “coastal haven.” Cart storage in the basement of the clubhouse accommodates the bustling resort.
Cougar Point Clubhouse is set to open its doors to players spring 2019.
