The Golf Clubhouse original structure looked anything but recreational. It was a utilitarian, beige, metal building, reminiscent of a double-wide, with an almost-flat roof and commercial doors and windows.
The Estes Valley’s Recreation District enlisted the expertise of T.W. Beck Architects to update and enhance the multi-use building that serves as the Golf Clubhouse and Pro-Shop for the local nine-hole golf course. The building also serves as the Recreation District’s offices, as well as a maintenance facility.
T.W. Beck Architects added a pitched roof before topping off the existing metal roof with rich, brown, asphalt composition shingles. Warm, honey-colored, log siding now covers the original metal building. A log porch with post-and-beam supports and stone wainscot welcomes golfers into the Golf Clubhouse. Doors and windows are trimmed in wood and painted brown to complement both the roof and siding. The concrete leading to the Clubhouse is now stamped and stained a warm terracotta color to further complement the traditional lodge-like hues of the Clubhouse.
No one would guess what lies beneath this striking structure that now fits perfectly into its mountain setting. The former make-shift, metal Clubhouse and Recreation District Office has been transformed into a beautiful example of Mountain Traditional style at its finest.
