The Tin Can Bay Country Club is set to undergo a facelift after more than 30 years of service.
Sunshine Coast hospitality design and fitout company, Hiller, began demolition on the old bar and keno area on Monday, May 15, making way for a completely transformed area.
Hiller Fitout project manager Matt Moren said the outdated bar was well in need of a renovation.
“This demolition was well overdue and will come at the perfect time to introduce new patronage to the Country Club and celebrate the new look bar, which will hopefully influence a younger crowd to the club,” Mr Moren said.
Hiller will relocate the Keno area currently attached to the bar, and the Country Club will establish a temporary bar while the renovations take place.
The new bar has been designed for maximum efficiency, includes a new beer system, decorative
joinery and exciting features.
Tin Can Bay Country Club operations manager Brad Robb said he hoped the renovation would encourage more families back to the club.
“It’s been 30 years since any work has been done internally to the club and it’s time we took the next step forward, not only for our members but for the broader community of Tin Can Bay,” Mr Robb said.
“We have spent a lot of time and money updating the golf course, which is now in fantastic condition, so it’s time to bring the work load inside and start freshening this place up.”
Mr Robb said he had mixed emotions about the renovations.
“I hardly slept last night because we are saying goodbye to something that has been here for a long time, however I am excited about work kicking off today and even the members have been commenting how happy they are to see things starting to happen,” he said.
“This new bar area is a way of giving back to our members, but also to the community.”
Hiller interior designer Cheryl Burns said other elements of the club will also undergo a facelift.
“The floor and furniture will also be updated as part of the renovation, and slowly the interior of the club will come together. We expect the finish project to be a place the Tin Can Bay community can be proud of and will want to frequent,” Mrs Burns said.
The Hiller Supply team will assist in the equipment fit out of the bar, which is scheduled for reopening by the June/July School Holidays.
