Virginia Course to Get New Clubhouse

Six years after its golf course opened, King Carter Golf Club in Irvington, Va., will finally break ground on a new clubhouse September 30th.

King Carter was named the "Best New Affordable Public Course" in the Nation by Golf Digest when it debuted in 2005. At the time, the "clubhouse" - still in use - was a one-room that the magazine, tongue firmly in cheek, proclaimed as the "Best New Clubhouse Under 250 Square Feet."

Members and daily-fee players will find considerably more "charm" in the new full-service structure which, if all goes well, will be completed in spring 2012. The clubhouse will include a complete pro shop along with a grill room.

"In a time when many golf courses are cutting costs to save money, we are excited to be enhancing our facility to provide a better experience for our players," said general manager J.D. Wilson.

"We have a loyal group of members and our course attracts golfers from all over Virginia, so a clubhouse is very important to help make the time they spend with us special from beginning to end."

King Carter is operated by Traditional Golf Management, which also oversees other semiprivate and private clubs in the Mid-Atlantic area.
