JNS Architecture + Interior Design, an award-winning, Denver-based architecture and interior design firm specializing in hospitality, urban housing and mixed-use projects, in collaboration with Foothills Park & Recreation District, has proudly announced the completion of the 26,000-square-foot Foothills Golf Course clubhouse. 

Located in Jefferson County, the Foothills Golf Course is one of the Denver metro area’s most popular public courses, featuring 36 holes and a driving range, all against the backdrop of expansive mountain views. The course’s new clubhouse aims to elevate the expected quality of a public clubhouse facility through the use of several sustainable features, including a mass timber approach, a highly insulated metal rainscreen, glazing that provides ample daylight throughout the space and strategically placed shading devices along the western exposure of the building.

Added focus on the golfer’s experience, from arrival to apres golf, is enhanced in the new space which includes expanded restaurant and terrace space, indoor-outdoor bar, a golf simulator room, event space and storage to accommodate the course’s fleet of golf carts.

“The new Foothills Golf Course clubhouse has been an immediate value-add for our community and our golfers,” said Ronald Hopp, executive director at Foothills Golf Clubhouse. “This project represents the culmination of careful planning and collaboration to deliver a space that both honors the features of the original clubhouse and caters to the modern needs of the sport. We appreciate JNS’ partnership in helping us realize this vision.”

Preserving a beloved feature of the original clubhouse, the 10-foot elevated story overlooking the course was incorporated into the new design to create an inviting deck space above the 18th hole and offer panoramic views of the Front Range. 

“We prioritized indoor-outdoor connections throughout the design,” said Heather Vasquez Johnson, principal at JNS Architecture + Interior Design. “We wanted the connection to the course to be felt even when golfers are enjoying the clubhouse amenities. Every detail, from the exposed timber structure that echoes the natural surroundings to the direct bar access and strategically placed shade structures, was intended to create cohesion between course and clubhouse.” 

To celebrate the completion of the clubhouse, Foothills Park & Recreation District will be hosting an Open House Week from June 5 to June 11, inviting the community to experience the clubhouse firsthand.
