What’s new: A guest room renovation was wrapped up this month; the resort’s meeting space, lobby and outdoor spaces had already been renovated. A new outdoor pavilion will soon be in use.
The $23 million project next moves to the clubhouse and golf course. Just over half of the monies spent were invested in improvements to guest rooms and meeting space, with $25,000 being spent per guest room. Among the most noticeable changes in the conference center is computer-controlled lighting and a boardroom outfitted for teleconferencing.
