Tom Hoch Transforms Clubhouse at Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club

Design-Build Firm Creates Exciting Social, Leisure and Dining Experiences Using Existing Space

(Oklahoma City, Okla.) – Tom Hoch – a pioneer in revenue-based design and turn-key, design-build interior architecture solutions – has completed a full renovation and transformation of the clubhouse at Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club in golf-rich Naples, Florida.

Utilizing an experienced team of artisan designers and leading edge technology, the Hoch team completed work in just three months. A tired snack bar for 40 diners on the second floor, kitchen and exercise room were converted into a grille, pub and lounge with invigorating views of the resort pool. The new dining and social space – which seats up to 120 – was created using efficient space planning and no extra square footage.

“Tom Hoch took the existing space in what was a ‘sports’ clubhouse and reinvented it as an exciting full service experience for our members and guests,” says Chris Major, general manager at Hammock Bay. “The firm’s design-build capabilities allowed for the fast-tracking of the remodel, minimizing overall impact.”

A new open air structure with screening was installed above the second floor outdoor terrace, along with an outdoor bar serving up to 300 patrons. Additionally, the main level was “right-sized” using Hoch’s proprietary revenue-based design, resulting in a new fitness center, and full-service kitchen serving the new outdoor bar and social terrace.

“The objective at Hammock Bay was to create an energetic and fun resort-private clubhouse with no wasted or under-utilized space,” says Tom Hoch, president. “Many golf courses – whether public, private or resort – have more than enough space to meet the future needs of their customers. Hammock Bay is a perfect example, and we look forward to impacting the club’s top and bottom lines.”

An amenity of the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Hammock Bay is a par 72, 7,080-yard course designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy. The layout is lined with beautiful live oaks are marked by rolling dunes up to 30 feet high and 200 feet long. Fairways are wide and framed by native trees, flowers and waste areas filled with crushed shells. Rich, green Paspalum turf grass provides an excellent, year-round playing surface.

Other 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).
