In this blog post, we’ll take you on a tour of six prestigious golf clubs that have enhanced their outdoor spaces with shade, offering golfers a cool oasis to rest, dine, and socialize between rounds. Discover how each clubhouse tailored their solution to create a unique and inviting atmosphere that keeps members coming back for more.

Crestmont Country Club

Crestmont Country Club, West Orange, New Jersey, USA.

Crestmont Country Club, a family-oriented venue in Essex County, underwent an expansion project that included ShadeFX’s customized canopies. The two-phase exterior rejuvenation involved installing four 12′ x 12′ manual canopies for the pool bar during Phase 1 and six 16′ x 8′ rope-operated canopies for the expanded outdoor dining area during Phase 2. Both phases used water-resistant Sunbrella fabric. The club provides its members with an exceptional dining and social experience, ensuring comfort and protection from the elements regardless of the occasion.

York Downs Golf & Country Club

York Downs Golf and Country Club, Unionville, Ontario, Canada.

York Downs Golf and Country Club, established in 1922, offers members an exclusive experience that goes beyond golf. Their 2013 course renovation extended to the clubhouse, which features a solid concrete exterior, horizontal lines, a glass façade, and an expansive patio. However, a previously installed awning failed to provide proper drainage and affected the aesthetics. ShadeFX stepped in to install a single 40′ retractable canopy with a ‘captive’ stabilizer against the building, allowing wings to float above the fairways. Now, members can enjoy complete sun and rain protection, reinforcing York Downs’ commitment to being “More than Just Golf.”

Angus Glen Golf Club

Angus Glen Golf Club, Markham, Ontario, Canada.

Angus Glen Golf Club, famous for hosting the Canadian Open and 2015 Pan Am Games, offers two challenging championship courses with stunning views. The Silo Grill restaurant overlooks the 18th hole, featuring an upper patio with a portion lacking overhead coverage. To enhance this space, Angus Glen partnered with ShadeFX to install four 24′ x 8′ retractable roofs, using waterproof and fire-resistant black Serge Ferrari fabric. The system is painted black to match the modern structure, and rain gutters were added for efficient rain management. Golfers can now enjoy protected seating and unobstructed views of the 18th hole from the second-floor patio.

Del Paso Country Club

Del Paso Country Club, Sacramento, California.

Del Paso Country Club, a private member-owned club in Sacramento, California, is known for its tree-lined fairways and challenging greens. Founded in 1916, it has hosted multiple USGA championships, including the 2015 U.S. Senior Open. To enhance the outdoor dining experience with a view of the golf course, Del Paso partnered with ShadeFX. Two 13′ x 12′ and two 21′ x 12′ retractable roofs were manufactured to mount on a custom steel frame, with the shades positioned above to accommodate fans. The neutral Ferrari Hemp fabric complements the club’s surroundings, providing members with comfortable, shaded outdoor dining and picturesque views.

Bayview Golf & Country Club

Bayview Golf & Country Club, Thornhill, Ontario, Canada.

Bayview Golf & Country Club, located in the heart of the GTA, offers more than just exceptional golf. The club features tennis, curling, fitness, dining, and a 13,000-square-foot swimming complex. As part of a recent renovation, Bayview focused on enhancing outdoor dining and poolside settings. ShadeFX installed five custom aluminum structures with manual retractable canopies; two 14′ x 12′ structures cover the pool deck bar, and three 18′ x 16′ structures provide shade for members enjoying meals and drinks. Painted Iron Grey and featuring fire-retardant, waterproof Bone Arcade FR fabric, these additions elevate Bayview as a premier club in the GTA.

Big Sky Resort

Big Sky Resort, Big Sky, Montana, USA.

Big Sky Resort in Southwest Montana offers year-round adventure, including an award-winning 18-hole golf course and the popular Bunker Deck & Grill restaurant. Initially using table umbrellas for alfresco dining, they sought a more robust weather solution and partnered with ShadeFX. Big Sky built a 42′ x 20′ structure to fit three 20′ x 14′ retractable canopies with UV-resistant Arcade Basic Beige fabric and rain gutters. The 840 sq ft patio now provides captivating views and protection from the elements. Golfers can enjoy their meals in comfort, with the option to retract the canopies on cooler evenings.
