Champions Retreat, a private golf club located just outside of Augusta, Ga., and the only club in the world featuring three individually designed courses by Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus – is scheduled to unveil a brand new 10,000-plus square-foot event venue during the week of The Masters in April 2016 (http://championsretreat.net/masters).
Inspired by the Arcadian sensibilities that currently embody the property, The Barn at Champions Retreat celebrates the simple, honest and rustic charm of the South and is suited for a wide range of events from corporate retreats, meetings, private banquets, watch parties and weddings. The addition will accommodate more than 400 people and encompass four areas including, an expansive great room, a versatile private dining room, an elegant bridal/green room and stately lounge.
The Barn will be adorned with memorabilia paying tribute to the three legends that designed the property, and the rich history they have contributed to the game of golf.
“The idea behind The Barn at Champions Retreat is multi-faceted,” said Cameron Wiebe, general manager of Champions Retreat. “We looked at areas we could enhance the club experience and with our passion for hospitality, felt an entertainment facility capable of catering to a variety of events would be ideal. From sophisticated weddings, black tie affairs and intimate wine dinners to corporate gatherings and casual parties with dancing, blue-jeans and our signature BBQ, The Barn at Champions Retreat will truly be a unique facility in the Southeast area and a top destination for weddings.”
Wiebe said The Barn will offer meeting, event and wedding planners an all-inclusive venue, with authentic rough sawn pine walls, rustic dining tables, plush leather couches and upholstered chairs, ornate chandeliers and a grand fireplace that all evoke the “true Southern charm’’ that Champions Retreat embraces.
A gourmet full-service catering kitchen and comprehensive A/V capabilities add to the amenities that enable Champions Retreat to customize The Barn experience to match the specific needs of their clientele, from intimate gatherings to large groups.
Wiebe said The Barn at Champions Retreat is a result of Heritage Golf Group’s ongoing commitment to exploring possibilities and providing creative hospitality experiences.
