Master Planning, Architecture and Design Expertise Attract Prestigious Club
Online PR News – 09-January-2012 – – BALTIMORE, MD – Chambers has been selected to design and oversee building of a new clubhouse for Lakewood Country Club in Westlake, Ohio. The Baltimore-based planning, architecture and interior design firm gained overwhelming membership approval of its master plan to build the clubhouse, which includes a new wellness/fitness center, golf learning facility, enhanced kitchen facilities and several member dining and banquet spaces.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Lakewood Country Club,” says Chambers President & CEO Rick Snellinger. “Nearly 100 years old, Lakewood has a rich heritage. We committed from the start to help the club preserve its history while adding features and amenities that will keep the club relevant into the next century,” he says.

Tillinghast golf course, enhanced patio and outdoor dining areas, locker rooms, a full service wellness/fitness facility, and a new amenity — an indoor, year-round golf learning center.
