The University of Texas Club Announces Multimillion-Dollar Reinvention
AUSTIN - The University of Texas Club, a proud member of the ClubCorp family of clubs, announces it is kicking off 2014 with a multimillion-dollar reinvention project that will bring stylish new décor to the club as well as expanded dining, social and business features. The club, located on the sixth and seventh floors of the east side of Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on the University of Texas campus, recently renewed its lease through end of year 2023.
The renovation project – now under way and scheduled to be complete in late spring – includes:
- Redesigned Longhorn Bar with casual dining
- New Texas Star banquette seating and community Joiners Tables
- New Media area with 103-inch big-screen TV
- New Darrell K. Royal Power Boardroom with HD videoconferencing
“With these renovations, we are beginning a new era for the club,” said General Manager Joe Connell. “We will preserve the traditions and spirit of the university in a stylish new setting that provides more opportunities throughout the year – not just on game days – for members to connect, host, work, play and celebrate.”
“The members are very excited about the upcoming improvements, which will provide even more reasons for them to showcase the club to family and friends and no doubt elevate the club’s status as ‘the’ spot for the University of Texas community to come together,” said club board of governors member Martha Hilley, a professor at the Butler School of Music.
As a member of the ClubCorp family, The University of Texas Club members can enjoy Community and Worldwide benefits, including complimentary green fees and complimentary dining at more than 200 private clubs and access to more than 700 hotels, resorts and entertainment venues. Additional clubs in the ClubCorp family in Austin include The Hills of Lakeway, which underwent a multimillion-dollar reinvention in 2013, and Lost Creek Country Club.
The ClubCorp Network includes additional clubs in stadiums across the country, including The Texas Tech Club in Lubbock and the University Center Club at Florida State University. ClubCorp's family of clubs in Texas number more than 30 clubs, including Tower Club in Dallas and Houston City Club.
