The Country Club of Hudson will host a ground breaking ceremony March 8 at 6 p.m. for the first phase of a comprehensive renovation project.

Phase one will include the construction of a new cabana bar, terrace extension, and improvements to the pool, dressing facilities, adding pool and outdoor lighting as well as several significant water amenities for young and old alike. The cabana bar will seat more than 35 people and will feature complete food service and bar facilities. It will feature five wide screen televisions as well as electric heaters so that the area can also be used in cooler weather. The terrace will be connected with the recently added terrace and outdoor fire pit into one large lighted entertainment area that will be used for dining, outdoor parties, weddings and other social occasions. The club also will enlarge its play space for children.

The club also is building a new service galley which will connect to the main clubhouse to support enhanced food service for outdoor entertainment.

"The vision of the Country Club of Hudson is to be one of the premier private clubs in Northeastern Ohio," said James G. Lang, president of the club's board of trustees. "We couldn't be more excited about beginning this project. The board has worked many long hours to develop this strategy and prepare for the implementation of this plan. Our members voted overwhelmingly in support of this comprehensive project and share our excitement about beginning the construction of these new facilities."

The completion of this phase is anticipated to be finished by May 15.
