Broomieknowe clubhouse invites golf novices to get into the swing of things
July 27 2022
Calum Duncan Architects have completed a new clubhouse for Broomieknowe Golf Club to modernise facilities and encourage new members.
Open to community use the facility is designed to attract younger and more female members through the provision of new changing rooms, a shop, reception and a function suite.
Set within a suburban neighbourhood of Bonnyrigg to the south of Edinburgh the £1.7m clubhouse is oriented to mediate between the course and the street with the southeast frontage serving as a new front door from Golf Course Road.
Set back from the street behind a retained car park, in deference to its domestic setting, the light grey brick clubhouse maximises landscape views to the northwest from a first-floor lounge.
In a statement, the architect wrote: "The linear building form changes angle slightly at the point of entrance, with the west end of the clubhouse being parallel the Golf Course Road and signaling the entrance location to visitors. The west-facing gabled end to the building also frames and engages with the primary circulation and focus, as the entry point to the course. The east end of the building is then played down with a hipped gable, feeling more appropriate and neighbourly in terms of the domestic context."
Built with David Narro Associates; Hardies and Harley Haddow the clubhouse reaches out to the green with a stained larch timber balcony and canopy.
