The new-look hotel will boast 44 new bedrooms, taking the total room count to 114, while the new bar and restaurant will overlook the 18th hole.

The renovations will also stretch to the three food and beverage concepts at the hotel and the 1,300 sq ft of meetings and events space, as well as all the current bedrooms.
