Tom Hoch to renovate Bentwood Country Club and Estates clubhouse

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Tom Hoch - a leader in integrated masterplan, design and build solutions - has been selected for clubhouse renovations at Bentwood Country Club and Estates in San Angelo, Texas.

Project highlights include: installation of an expansive outdoor terrace and veranda; a new restaurant and bar / lounge with exhibition kitchen; a wood-burning pizza oven and pizza dining area; and upgraded men's and women's locker rooms. The Hoch team will design and build the project, minimizing disruptions to members and streamlining the process.

"Tom understands the needs of our members and his vision will help pave the way for years of success and enjoyment at Bentwood Country Club," says John Dunn, Bentwood Country Club Managing Partner. "The firm's ability to both design and build the renovation is paramount to keep the project on time and on budget."

Hoch has revolutionized the category via "revenue-based design," a space planning, sizing and mapping process for retail spaces such as golf shops and food-and-beverage operations. Revenue-based design can be applied to new construction, and is particularly effective with cost-sensitive remodeling projects. It is scalable to any size space in a wide variety of industries.

"By emphasizing dining and social spaces that enhance member interaction, Bentwood is reinventing the country club experience," says Hoch. "The renovation is limited to the existing 15,000 square-foot clubhouse and immediate surrounds, with no additions to the building footprint."

Other high-profile U.S. and international Tom Hoch projects include: Marriott's Camelback Mountain (Scottsdale, Ariz.); Slammer and Squire at World Golf Village (St. Augustine, Fla.); The Rookery at Marco (Marco Island, Fla.); The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain (Marana, Ariz.); The Members' Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (Fla.); Renaissance Golf Club (Mass.); TPC Valencia (Calif.); Zavidovo Golf and Lake Resort (Russia); and Tulsa Country Club (Okla).
