SKW's solution was to create two separate spines of circulation . The more public avenue of circulation, supporting public social functions, begins at the main entry with porte cochere drop-off and continues into the administrative area, meeting rooms and ballroom. The second avenue of circulation for club members is the golfers' entry with bag drop. This avenue supports and provides access to all golf functions - from men's and women's locker rooms to meeting and card rooms, central lounge and pro-shop, to a terminus of private and main dining rooms and terraces with a panoramic view of the course grounds. Doors in the cross-connecting corridor between the two spines formally separate the two functions. The renovated and expanded kitchen serves both functions.
