Golf Clubhouse 1, Royal Dornoch Golf Club

Jefcoate Anderson Architects were shortlisted along with six U.K. and international architects to design a new club house for Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

Of the six designs submitted, the Club Management Council unanimously judged our proposal to be the winning design.

The design draws upon the architecture of the 1909 clubhouse and contemporary golf clubhouse design to create a modern yet timeless building.

On both ground and first floors the clubhouse functions are arranged around a top lit central atrium which serves as the primary circulation space.

The dining room, bars and function areas are located to the golf course side of the building allowing for panoramic views across the Championship and Struie Courses. Full height glazing opens onto a terrace/viewing gallery from which members and visitors can appreciate the spectacular setting and view play on the 18th green.

The Club required that the clock tower of the original clubhouse be incorporated in the new design. As with the historic clubhouse the clock tower enjoys a prominent central location, sitting upon the lower of three roofs, above the stair atrium and centred between the two, higher pitched roof gable the central section of the building. High-level clerestory glazing above the dining room references the original double dormer of the 1909 clubhouse allowing daylight to penetrate deep into the floor plan and provide natural ventilation.

Contemporary interpretations of the original clubhouse chimneys frame the clock tower, visually breaking the roof line and balancing the composition of the various building elements. They also house the service risers and ducts serving the ancillary and service accommodation below. 

External materials suited for the  exposed, northerly coastal location comprise a traditional pallet of stone, white render, scottish slate and standing seam zinc.
