ClubCorp closed on its third acquisition in 2017 with the purchase of Norbeck Country Club, which is located in Rockville, Maryland, just north of Washington, D.C. ClubCorp plans a multimillion-dollar reinvention of the club that will feature new dining amenities, and improvements and upgrades to the club over the next two years.
“Norbeck Country Club is an exceptional, family oriented full-service club — a profile that fits nicely into our portfolio of clubs in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area,” said Mark Burnett, ClubCorp COO and president.
This is the public company's second club in Maryland, along with Eagle’s Nest Country Club in Phoenix, Maryland, which is acquired last month.
It also owns Chantilly National Golf and Country Club in Centreville, Virginia, River Creek Club in Leesburg, Virginia, Piedmont Club in Haymarket, Virginia, The City Club of Washington in downtown D.C. and Tower Club Tysons Corner in Vienna, Virginia.
“From the beginning of this process, ClubCorp went above and beyond to meet the needs of the club and the members, who couldn’t be happier to now have ClubCorp on-board,” said Nick Bobruska, president of the club’s board of governors.
ClubCorp held a town hall meeting and extensive focus group interviews with members, which allowed company representatives to gain firsthand insight into the club’s needs and how the member experience could be enhanced.
Plans for the multimillion-dollar renovation include new dining and social features to the clubhouse and patio, plus improvements to other amenities. In addition, prior to the acquisition, the club began extensive pool-area renovations and improvements that are scheduled to be completed in advance of the Memorial Day weekend.
Norbeck Country Club sits on 198 acres and has an 18-hole course. Additional amenities include casual and upscale dining, nine outdoor and three indoor tennis courts in a permanent tennis structure plus extensive tennis programming and team play for all ages and ability levels, an Olympic-size pool and wading pool.
