The new clubhouse at Creighton Farms is open for business! Last week, I had the good fortune to stop by for a sneak peek and tour of the facility. With the welcoming, wide front porch and stone facade, it truly delivers the feeling of a Loudoun County manor home, albeit on a grand scale.
During my visit, finishing touches were being completed in most areas. While I was there, the pro shop staff was busy putting out merchandise and organizing their spacious corner of the facility. The pub area was taking delivery of some 19th hole libations; everywhere I looked there was someone cleaning, painting, or polishing something.
As expected, the restaurant dining room had fantastic views of the 18th hole and the rolling vista behind the building. The mens and ladies locker rooms and lounges, located on the lower level, were comfortable and luxurious; the leather member name tags on the lockers were a nice touch. Both areas have steam rooms, open onto the rear patio space, and have access to several massage rooms. While not overly large, the lounges should be plenty spacious for the number of members they are expecting. There’s a full fitness center on the lower level as well.
The main level of the clubhouse celebrates the life and career of Jack Nicklaus (he’s the signature designer of the golf course, after all). Members can enjoy the billiard room just off the pub or relax on the veranda overlooking the course. A front formal room can be booked for business or social gatherings. The patio area is designed for weddings and other tented functions. (They’ve already booked numerous dates; I’m guessing this is going to be well received. The location is gorgeous.)
I was particularly impressed with the thought that went into designing the upstairs area; unlike any other club in our area, there are nine club rooms overlooking the course for overnight accommodations for guests of members or function attendees.
The building that has served since the course opening as the Golf House (pictured above) will be converted into a private dining and functions facility.
