OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – Tom Hoch of Oklahoma City – a pioneer in revenue-based design and turn-key, design-build interior architecture solutions – has been selected by Marriott to remodel the clubhouse at its iconic Camelback Golf Club in Paradise Valley, Arizona.
In concert with a major renovation of the Indian Bend course by Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry, Hoch will revitalize and refresh the 36,000 square-foot clubhouse interior, originally built in 1999. The 36-hole golf oasis at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn Scottsdale Resort & Spa is one of the true bedrocks of the Scottsdale golf landscape.
"Tom Hoch has brought us an exciting, creative and visionary design that will improve the lifestyle proposition and relevancy of our clubhouse for members and patrons alike" says Jim Rose, Camelback Inn’s General Manager. "Hoch’s design will be implemented in phases and will be the perfect complement to our renovated golf course."
The master-plan design includes: space planning and interior design improvements to an expanded bar/lounge; revamped club grille with exhibition kitchen; upgraded inside/outside social areas, renovated members club lounge, golf shop, and locker rooms; as well as enhancements to the VIP club room. Hoch’s team will create memorable, engaging spaces for guests and members, while bolstering the top and bottom lines for golf club operations.
"We are once again honored to have the opportunity to work with Marriott, a brand so committed to the game of golf and golfers world-wide," says Tom Hoch, president of Tom Hoch Design. "Camelback is one of the crown jewels of the Marriott portfolio, and we look forward to positioning it for another era of success."
Other recent U.S. and internationally-based Tom Hoch projects include: 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).
