Falmouth, MA - The Cape Club by Troon (formerly Ballymeade Country Club), located on Cape Cod, will open for daily-fee play on Wednesday, August 3rd. A totally new golf experience will be unveiled as the original 18-holes were essentially wiped away and a completely new golf course was constructed. The new golf course construction was coordinated by Troon's Vice President of Golf Course Development Ron Despain together with Troon's development department.
"The new Cape Club by Troon offers the quality of a private club, but it is open to the public," said Ryan Payne, director of golf at The Cape Club. "Together with Troon, we've created a first-class golf destination designed to enhance a member for the day experience."
The new Cape Club by Troon will feature elevated tees with scenic views of the Cape and ocean, along with several dramatic water features and Augusta white sand bunkers. Another unique thing about the redesign are the cart paths, white crushed stone was used to match the tone of the bunkers.
Additionally, The Cape Club has unveiled a new practice facility. The state-of-the-art facility has been relocated adjacent to the clubhouse to integrate golf, dining and social activities to provide a unique entertainment experience for guests. Distance-tracking technology has also been integrated into the practice facility so golfers can accurately track ball speed and distance for each shot. Long term plans for the practice facility include the construction of an upper deck with seating areas that allow guests to dine, practice, take in football or baseball games on flat screen televisions and socialize, all within steps of the practice tee.
The new clubhouse enhancements at The Cape Club were unveiled last fall, along with the addition of a new restaurant, the Cape Grille Steak & Seafood. Clubhouse enhancements included a complete renovation of fixtures, furnishings, marble tile accents, siding, windows, doors and more. The renovated clubhouse is home to more than 20,000 square-feet of banquet space, groom and bridal suites, golf shop, meeting space and the Cape Grille Steak & Seafood.
The master plan for the Cape Club Resort calls for 28 single family homes and 80 golf villa and cottages where groups or individuals can spend the night, week or month. Resort shuttle services will take overnight guests to area beaches located just three miles from the Cape Club Resort. Additional future amenities call for a resort pool with bar and food service overlooking the golf course, an open-air event pavilion overlooking holes 9 and 18, as well as a luxurious spa with fitness center and indoor pool facilities. The residential, cottage, spa and pool elements of the resort are currently in the permitting and planning stages.
The Cape Club is conveniently located five miles from the Bourne Bridge, the gateway to the Cape, and just a 45 minute ride from Boston. For more information on The Cape Club, visit capeclubresort.com or call (508) 540-4005.`
