Oklahoma City-based clubhouse designer Tom Hoch – a pioneer in revenue-based design – has been selected by the Rookery at Marco near Naples, Fla., for a major clubhouse renovation.
The project features a blend of high-energy spaces and timeless themes and décor. Indoor and outdoor areas will merge to create alfresco dining taking advantage of the South Florida weather.
The project includes updates to the locker rooms, meeting rooms, common areas and exterior.
“Tom is a trusted partner and engaging his firm for the Rookery at Marco will breathe new life into the clubhouse,” says Chris Major, general manager of golf. “He understands how to balance the needs and amenities of members and guests while creating a sense of place.”
The design and build phases will take place in the spring and summer with completion targeted for the fall. Hoch and his team recently completed a similar project at nearby sister course, Hammock Bay, and designed the original interior for the Rookery at Marco clubhouse in 2006. Both courses are amenities of the acclaimed Marco Island Beach Resort.
“This renovation of the Rookery at Marco will enhance the customer’s experience from the first touch point to the last,” Hoch said. “We look forward to delivering on the vision of this special property.”
Recent U.S. and internationally-based Tom Hoch projects include: Camelback Mountain Golf Club, (Carefree, Arizona); The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain (Marana, Arizona); The Members’ Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (Florida); Farm Links Golf Club (Alabama); Renaissance Golf Club (Massachusetts); TPC Valencia (California); Zavidovo Golf and Lake Resort (Russia); and Tulsa Country Club (Oklahoma); multiple projects with Troon Golf; Apes Hill Club (Barbados); and The Abaco Club (Bahamas).
