New clubhouse coming to Aspen Links

In September of 2011, the clubhouse at Aspen Links Country Club in Emerald Park was destroyed by fire. It has taken longer than it should have, but a replacement is finally being built.

Mark Smith with Eagle Developments, is going to build and operate the facility. He says it will be more than a clubhouse.

“A restaurant and a lounge, you don’t have to be a golfer to come and enjoy that,” said Smith. “We’re going to have virtual golf games, and other arcade games and pool tables so it’s somewhat of a game room or a rec room.”

Besides that, there will also be a daycare that has been licensed for over 80 kids. He says this will not only  serve well for golfers, but for the communities of White City, Emerald Park and Balgonie.

A completion date has not been determined yet.
