The Brick Companies Completes $4 Million Clubhouse Expansion at the Golf Cub at South River
EDGEWATER, Md. (February 26, 2013) - With the completion of The Brick Companies' $4 million clubhouse expansion at The Golf Club at South River, the private club remains open to the public for lunch, dinner and brunch at The Bistro as well as for special events, including corporate meetings, retreats and weddings. The official re-opening marks the culmination of a successful three-year process to privatize the club that earlier included more than $2 million in renovations and upgrades to the practice facility as well as rebuilt bunkers and green surrounds throughout the golf course.
Highlights of the new clubhouse features that remain available to the general public include:
The Bistro - Already being touted as a "neighborhood gem," The Bistro, under the leadership of award-winning Executive Chef Quintin West (Chef Q), is now open for Sunday Brunch as well as lunches and dinners daily. In keeping with The Brick Companies' emphasis on environmental sustainability, the creative menu features local farm-to-table, seasonal dishes made possible through partnerships with Anne Arundel County farms, wild-caught seafood, use of certified sustainable sources and inclusion of seasonal herbs and vegetables grown on-site.
The Great Room - Immediately adjacent to The Bistro is The Great Room, a timber-framed banquet and large meeting space unlike any other in the region with its huge fireplace, sweeping one-of-a-kind staircase and stunning custom made chandelier. The room, with built-in bar area and adjacent "bridal lounge," is perfect for anything from wedding receptions to corporate events or retreats for up to 100 people requiring high-tech capabilities such as dropdown video screens and wireless connections operated with wall-mounted iPads. The room was built in keeping with The Brick Companies' environmental focus including the hardwood floor reclaimed from an 1800s Philadelphia factory and complements a new green roof at the opposite side of the clubhouse.
The Club Room - An addition to the main level is The Club Room, a smaller meeting space for up to 30 people. Also outfitted with high-tech capabilities, this may be the most sought after meeting space in the Annapolis area because it also features a high-definition golf simulator using the same built-in technology used for hi-tech business presentations and discussions. Attendees can complete their day's official meeting agenda on the 16-foot by 9-foot flat screen, then enjoy a treatment at the club’s massage therapy room or remain inside to participate in a closest to the pin contest, or even play a simulated round at Pebble Beach or Bethpage Black. No matter the event, the day can finish with dinner and drinks just steps away at The Bistro.
The golf course is reserved for the exclusive use of the members, along with a new state-of-the-art fitness center located adjacent to the new massage therapy room and new locker rooms on the lower level. The Club Room golf station is where members can practice or have a swing analysis performed by the club’s PGA professionals, while a full service golf shop is located just below.
Because it is owned and operated by The Brick Companies, a financially secure company founded in 1892, the club has no debt and can fund any upgrades. As a result, three policies differentiate the club from others: membership deposits (with flexible payment options) are refundable based upon when the member joined, there are no food and beverage consumption minimums and there are no operational assessments on members. Dues are all-inclusive and include unlimited golf, range balls and carts. As an additional benefit, members can play two sister courses (River and Lakes) at Queenstown Harbor on the Eastern Shore for a $25 cart fee with no restrictions.
