Interior renovations wrap up, new construction of racquet center commences at Medinah Country Club

CHICAGO – Chicago general contractor, Summit Design + Build, LLC, was recently awarded contracts to complete the new construction of a racquet sports center and the renovations of the club cabana at Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Ill. The new projects, as well as the recently completed Oasis, are part of a larger modernization plan at the world renowned country club.

Summit started work at Medinah in early spring with the remodeling of the clubhouse Oasis. The approximately 3,900 square foot renovation added a restaurant quality kitchen and fully remodeled lounge and bar with high-end finishes in the clubhouse dining area. Work is now continuing with the ground up construction of a 1,700 square foot racquet center, which will include six paddle ball courts, and the renovation of the clubhouse pool cabana with all new bar, patio and canopy. Two tennis courts will accompany the racquet center with prep for two more to be completed at a later date.

“Our job here is to help Medinah continue to provide top amenities to their members and honored guests, while maintaining the integrity and historic beauty of the iconic club,” said Helenia Madrigal, Director of Interiors, Summit Design + Build.

Medinah Country Club, with three legendary courses set amongst 600 acres 25 miles west of Chicago, has played host to a number of international golf events including three U.S. Opens, one U.S. Senior Open, two PGA Championships and the Ryder Cup, as well as hosting the 2019 BMW Championship. The country club was founded in 1924, and the 105,000-square foot, red-brick clubhouse was completed in 1926 and saw its last major renovations in the late 1990’s.

OKW Architects is the architect of record for both the racquet center and oasis/cabana projects.
