Renovation Project Brings Stylish New Décor, Expanded Dining, Social and Fitness Features

GRANGER — Knollwood Country Club, a proud member of the ClubCorp family of clubs, announces the completion of a dramatic reinvention of the clubhouse – a major renovation project that brings a stylish new décor, expanded dining areas, and additional social  and fitness features to enhance daily life for the private club members of today.

Expanded dining, social, and fitness features include:

  • New Dining Area – a modern setting where members can invite family and friends to dine in style with fresh and innovative cuisine
  • New Expanded Bar and Grill – Featuring community table with iPads, a beautiful double-sided gas fireplace, casual seating area, and 80” TV – the perfect spot to socialize and catch up on the latest sporting events
  • New Outdoor Veranda – Cabana seating and a fire table set the scene for members to share stories over cocktails and appetizers while taking in the serene golf course view
  • Newly Renovated Fitness Center (opened in January 2013) offering state-of-the-art Body Masters fitness equipment and exercise room

“This clubhouse redesign also marks a reinvention of the club’s culture that makes it more relevant in the community and really matches our members’ changing interests and lifestyles,” said General Manager Brian Ihnat. “As a club, we can provide so much more and, ultimately, a better value for every member of the family.”

“The members are very excited about the ‘new’ Knollwood,” said Knollwood Board of Governors Chairperson Michele Scherpenberg. “All the new amenities provide so many more opportunities to gather at the club, get to know the other members and entertain family and friends.”

A private country club located in Granger, Knollwood Country Club offers two 18-hole golf courses, practice facilities, multiple lighted tennis courts, two outdoor lap/swimming pools, 12’ diving pool, children’s zero-entry pool with water fountain, 25-meter indoor salt-water pool, spinning studio, racquetball, group exercise classes, complete athletic facility, outdoor Café Splash dining, and private event space.
