The Ohoopee Match Club is located in rural Cobbtown, Georgia, and situated on an old onion farm. It’s a new private golf club devoted to match play competition with a course built by renowned course designer, Gil Hanse. It is carved out of the natural landscape of the Ohoopee Dunes System.
The property includes a clubhouse, a lodge, and golf operations and maintenance facility. The design for the clubhouse has taken its inspiration from the agricultural buildings of Tattnall County, with reclaimed exterior materials that blend with the simple aesthetic of the surrounding farms. Our interior design reflects natural and simple architectural elements and the use of reclaimed details preserves the naturalistic philosophy of the development. While the golf course and a portion of the lodge recently opened, the first phase is set to be completed in fall 2018, with additional lodges to be completed in the future.
J. Banks Design Group worked with project architect Joel Newman of Thomas & Denzinger Architects to ensure the architecture and interior design created a seamless experience within this special property that Golf, Inc., magazine describe this way:
“Planting your peg on the first tee of a great new course is like waking up on Christmas morning. You may have some idea about the gifts that await, but the surprise is half the fun. As each hole unfolds, it’s akin to unwrapping one present at a time. Each hole and each course is different, and that’s what makes it so enjoyable.”
At Ohoopee Match Club, as with the other golf course clubhouses we design, we concentrate on creating the best experience for those who spend their days with clubs in their hands, and their family members, as they trade sunny days on the green for evenings enjoying a luxurious dining experience or gathering at the bar.
