Jefferson Park Golf Course Facility Renovations
Location: 4101 Beacon Ave S, Seattle WA 98108
The old clubhouse was demolished in late 2013 and construction of the new facility is underway.
The long awaited project will feature a new clubhouse with a double decked covered and heated driving range, an enlarged and improved food & beverage operations with indoor and outdoor facilities, banquet and meeting rooms, enlarged pro shop with club repair, new teaching facilities and new putting greens.
During the construction period golf operations will move to temporary facilities across Beacon Ave. behind the existing first tee. A pro shop and a food service facility will be set up in order to continue to offer as many services and amenities possible. There will be no impact upon the 18-hole course which will remain open throughout construction. Efforts are being made to keep partial use of the driving range available to golfers during construction. However, logistical issues must be overcome before a firm decision can be made.
The new clubhouse will provide a improvement to municipal golf services and a wonderful community space to non-golfing patrons as well.
