Summer is in full swing in the Heber Valley. The long days and beautiful weather have meant full steam ahead on Red Ledges’ future Clubhouse! Progress has been swift and construction crews continue to make important deadlines, moving forward daily in order to make the new 14,000 square foot Clubhouse a reality by Spring 2015!
To date, the foundation, footings and basement have all been poured with more concrete work planned for early June including the dining room and Clubhouse entry. Framing of the structure will begin around the first of July followed by a completed exterior by late Fall 2014. The Clubhouse will include a covered porte-cochere and 8000 square feet of second floor common space; including the dining area, bar, Sports Shop, locker rooms and grand entry. In addition, there will be 2000 square feet of outdoor patio dining and seating with the remaining square footage housing an underground cart barn, kitchen, back of house and offices.
In addition to the new Clubhouse, the current Juniper Grill dining room will house a new Kid’s Cabin, providing kids a place to enjoy board games, video games and crafts, while the current Sports Shop will once again become the yoga / group fitness studio.
Located adjacent to the Swim and Fitness building, the Clubhouse will provide the community with a central hub for all things Red Ledges! Golfers will pull beneath the porte-cochere and be greeted by a valet at the bag drop before moving seamlessly to the cart staging area and out for their rounds. Diners and those just meeting up with friends or grabbing a beverage will enjoy spectacular views from both the dining room as well as the outdoor patios of the iconic Red Ledges, the 9th hole and majestic Mt. Timpanogos. The new Clubhouse will proudly host special events, group gatherings, luncheons, live music and more making it Red Ledges’ most exciting amenity to date!
It’s an exciting time to be a part of Red Ledges and to see so many dreams becoming a reality. There are homes both completed and under construction, new neighborhoods and roads being built, friendships continually forming and in the Spring of 2015 – the new Clubhouse! The Red Ledges’ Clubhouse is sure to knit the community together even more tightly, offering a place to meet with friends and family, to enjoy wonderful meals, hold events and to kick back and soak in all that is Red Ledges.
