The aforementioned patio has also been expanded in both width and length, and the new higher roof design fully maximizes the views and outdoor dining experience. The patio provides easy access to the putting green and lawn activity space for further enjoyment. Seating capacity has also been expanded for outdoor dining and access has been improved between the lounge, dining room, and lounge patio. The clubhouse renovation project was voted on and approved by Pinetop Country Club members in August 2020. Construction began in October 2020, with a majority of the construction work taking place during the winter and spring. During the reopening celebration, the club recognized and honored past club presidents, donors to the Next Generation Founders Club, and those who helped with the completion of the project, including Art Porter, member-project manager; Board Members; Redden Construction, general contractor for the project; and numerous other members and vendors. The evening celebration included culinary creations, wine tasting and live music. “Pinetop Country Club has been my home in the mountains for over 30 years,” said Pinetop Country Club Board President Andy Munter. “I am so grateful for our Club and for the founders

of our Club who had the foresight and the commitment to make Pinetop Country Club a reality. I sometimes wonder how they would feel to know that thousands of members and guests have shared the joy of this wonderful place they created. Today, with the completion of our clubhouse renovation, our members have made it possible for future generations to bring their friends and family to this amazing place. Thank you to everyone who helped us on our journey to create a path for our next generation of Pinetop Country Club members.” Pinetop Country Club was established in the early 1960’s as the cornerstone of the Pinetop Country Club land development project and is located near the town of Pinetop, centered in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona. At 7,400 ft. in elevation, the mountain air is cool, and the golf course is nestled among tall pines, aspens and some beautiful summer homes. Country Club amenities include an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Milt Coggins, Sr., tennis and pickleball courts, and clubhouse restaurant and lounge. The club is owned by its members, through equity stock, and managed by Troon Privé, the private club operating division of Troon.
