BERTHOUD, CO (June 23, 2020) – TPC Colorado announces the grand opening of the expansive 65,000 square-foot clubhouse, which will serve as the epicenter of the Heron Lakes Community, on July 18, 2020. The clubhouse features rustic, modern, mountain charm throughout and showcases a 5,000 square-foot grand ballroom, full-service men’s and women’s locker facilities and intimate dining and meeting rooms. The pinnacle is the 15,000 square feet of covered patio overlooking five holes of golf and sweeping lake and mountain views. Those views of the Front Range include Longs Peak, Rocky Mountain National Park, the Flatirons in Boulder and Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs.
“We’re incredibly excited to open the doors to the clubhouse, which was designed and built to truly be a place where our members and guests feel at home,” said General Manager John Buser. “We look forward to providing a warm and wonderful venue for times of socialization, where cherished, lasting memories will be made.”
Two dining establishments, open to the public, will serve as the heart of the TPC Colorado clubhouse. Named after the 773-yard 13th hole, the longest par five in the country, 773 Prime will offer steaks and seafood seared to 1,700 degrees from the Montague steakhouse broiler. Center Stage, featuring an exhibition style kitchen with rotisserie and pizza oven provides sweeping mountain views and is just steps away from the namesake16th hole. Between the upscale 773 Prime and the more casual yet refined experience of Center Stage, sits a 40-person bar serving Colorado craft beers. Both restaurants, as well as a Cafè and Outdoor Grill will be led by established Executive Chef Martin Woods, along with his highly qualified and experienced culinary team.
“At TPC Colorado, we are committed to sustainable and responsible stewardship of our lands, mountains and oceans,” said Executive Chef Woods. “We have committed ourselves to good food that’s expertly prepared with a ‘mastering of simplicity’ approach. We passionately search for superior seasonal and regional products as we cultivate the relationship between farmers and the chef. It is the driving influence that contributes to the essence of our cuisine and hospitality experience, ensuring a sense of wellness and dining enjoyment.”
Situated along the banks of Lonetree, McNeil and Welch Reservoirs and featuring majestic views of the Rocky Mountains, the 865-acre golf community opened in the spring of 2018. TPC Colorado encompasses a master-planned residential neighborhood, an 18-hole championship golf course and clubhouse, with a marina, swimming pool and fitness facility opening in the near future. More than eight miles of walking trails and countless recreation opportunities reflect Colorado’s active outdoor culture, such as boating, biking, hiking and world-class fishing.
TPC Colorado’s championship golf course is designed by Arthur Schaupeter Golf Course Architects and is host of the Colorado Championship at Heron Lakes, a Korn Ferry Tour event, contested June 29-July 5, 2020. While the course can be stretched to over 7,900 yards for tournament competition, multiple tees on each hole will give recreational golfers an opportunity to play the course at any length, ranging from 4,000 yards up to 7,600 yards. The par-72 layout features a variance of hole lengths, elevated ridges with panoramic views of Longs Peak and the entire Front Range and holes along the shorelines of the large reservoirs. Stacked-sod pot bunkers and fescue-lined fairways gives golfers a sense of the Scottish heritage of the sport.
