First Columbia, LLC, Saratoga Springs, New York
The Saratoga National Golf Club is an award-winning public golf course with country club style amenities. The contemporary grand manor style clubhouse includes popular restaurant, bar and banquet facilities. Outdoor terrace seating, bar and fire pits overlook greens fairways and ponds.
To accommodate the high demand for banquet space at this popular venue, Saratoga Associates designed a 4,500 square foot two-story addition to the existing clubhouse. The new wing seamlessly integrates into the existing architecture repeating the stone façade and generous glazing allowing sweeping views of the golf course. The centerpiece of the expansion is a 250 seat ballroom with an integrated veranda porch. Smaller lobby nodes provide space for cocktail gatherings, pre-event display and more intimate group dining. The interior design of the addition mirrors the opulence of the original clubhouse with ornate woodwork, vaulted ceilings and stone accent.
