A Wish List With An "Upscale Casual" Theme Comes True

The Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club celebrates its 25th anniversary with a renovation of the golf clubhouse.
Both dining areas offer tables, booths and banquettes.

 The Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club hits a quarter century milestone this year. In the run-up to the 25th anniversary, the club completed the latest in its ongoing efforts to upgrade, improve and enhance its facilities – the renovation of the golf clubhouse.

The dedicated committee in charge of the project realized that they had more than achieved their objectives when they heard the “Wows” and similar exclamations uttered at the club’s grand opening last November. And it’s easy to see why.

From the textured bluestone walkway leading to the arched mahogany and glass front entrance – through the lobby with its rich, diamond-patterned wood floor and the hint of vibrant colors that begin to set the rhythm for the revamped dining space – into the dining area that is both open yet compartmentalized and intimate in design – and finally through to the expanded veranda overlooking the sparkling lake that is home to migrating birds by day and lit by the moon by night, the clubhouse reached all the desired benchmarks for style, functionality, flexibility and comfort.
