Golf Inc. magazine annually recognizes top public and private, new and remodeled clubhouses in their July/August issue. In 2019, a total of nine new public and private clubhouses were honored by the industry-leading publication.
The entire facility has scenic views of the golf course and the spectacular rock formations in nearby Papago Park,” the article noted of the 9,000 square-foot clubhouse. “To deal with the scorching Arizona summers, large overhangs provide shading, and minimal glass on western exposures limits heat gain. Masonry walls inside and out reduce maintenance. The structure is designed to meet green building standards and includes energy-saving equipment that helps reduce energy use.”
The layout of Lou’s Bar and Grill was designed to serve golfers and casual diners alike in a cool-clean, stone-and-steel atmosphere with open spaces that provide an inclusive, indoor-outdoor feel. The “al fresco” dining room and patio seating overlooking green lawns and golf course views provide a setting for small to medium-sized groups, and the adjacent enclosed event hall, Evie’s Pavilion, named after Lou’s wife Evelyn, can accommodate larger groups of up to 120 people.
