ROANOKE, Va., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ballyhack Golf Club has officially broken ground on its new maintenance facility and gating for the Estates of Ballyhack. The club, which came under new ownership in 2016, is today one of several private destination clubs that comprise the Dormie Network. These projects are among a number of renovations that have been in the planning stages for several months, and are part of a long-term reinvestment initiative across the network.
The new maintenance facility will primarily be used for preparing daily tasks, servicing equipment, and outlining future priorities, notes Ballyhack's General Manager Ian Sikes. "The facility will enable us to continue to maintain the world-class course conditions for which Ballyhack is known," he adds. "It's an investment that serves both the immediate and long-term needs of our staff, the club and its members." Construction began in early April and is expected to conclude in August.
Gate construction for the Estates of Ballyhack (one of the club's two residential real estate developments) is also underway. The Estates of Ballyhack offer minimum one-acre parcels located along the perimeter of the course's front nine. The new gate will extend around the development, gating the community of current and future residents. Both developments have residential land parcels currently for sale. (Please contact Ballyhack directly for more information.)
These and a number of other course improvement projects (including the construction of a new cart barn, the redesign of parking areas, and new roofing for the property's silos) come amid a period of substantial reinvestment for Ballyhack and the other Dormie Network clubs. Nebraska City's ArborLinks (a nationally ranked, private destination club) recently announced plans to double its on-site cottage accommodations. Meanwhile, Pinehurst's Dormie Club is in the planning stages of a new full-service clubhouse, a halfway house, and on-site cottage accommodations.
"It's an exciting time for Dormie Network," adds the network's Operations Manager Mark Ruhga. "These investments reinforce our commitment to offering a pristine, pure golf experience and genuine hospitality at every course for every member."
