Renovations at Breezy Bend Country Club might not be visible to the casual passerby on Roblin Boulevard but members are in for a new look to the interior of their clubhouse and locker-room area.

Club manager Cory Johnson confirms that  "the clubhouse first opened its doors in 1988 and has had several minor cosmetic upgrades over the years."  
However, the 2014 renovation project catapults the club into a new, upscale league for private golf facilities.

From your first step into the newly redecorated front entrance, the club’s new reception area, with new flooring and lighting, directs you further to the newly hung doors and glass wall that now designate the "members’ area."  Look for a new trophy wall of fame as well.
What used to be an average, cozy meeting place for dining with other members now boasts a feature wall of cultured stone and a long white bars. The addition of a fireplace feature wall provides a cozy feel.

The club’s rustic, screened-in deck has been replaced by a sprawling outside deck that overlooks the putting green and the ninth green.

Johnson proudly declares that "we are pleased to say that all of these enhancements will be done with no member assessments nor any significant increase to member
annual dues. These improvements aim to further develop the overall member and guest experience, both on and off the golf course."

Members will appreciate the renovations to the lower levels, where the men’s and women’s locker rooms have been significantly upgraded. The shower areas have been redone, contemporary lighting has been added, lockers have been rejuvenated and countertops have been replaced.

 "It’s a step forward," says longtime member Mike Martyniuk.

It takes a lot of equipment to manicure a golf course. The new turf care building provides over 5,000 square feet of space. All of this will provide a safer and more efficient work space for the grounds crews.

Food and beverage manager Jennifer McArthur and executive chef Klaus Leiendecker are busy working out the details for  the members grand re-opening evening which is scheduled for Sat., April 26.
