3 million to be used on clubhouse For instance, the Coatesville Country Club in West Caln is in the midst of a $3.9 million clubhouse renovation, and the Radley Run Country Club spent $2.9 million last spring to redo its clubhouse. Money to fund the Concord renovations came from full golf members, who each purchased a $6,500 equity bond. Golf course work at Concord, originally scheduled to be completed May 1, now won't be done until July 1 at the earliest. Among the more costly items was installing a sophisticated dual path irrigation system to allow more uniform fairway and rough play. Other changes include a return to the original course design on many of the 18 holes; greens are being enlarged, fairways made wider and sand traps improved. First opened in 1927, thecourse was originally laid out by respected designer Donald Ross and his partners. Among other local links credited to Ross are the Gulph Mills Golf Club in nearby Montgomery County and the Kennett Square Golf and Country Club in East Marlborough. Members and guests alike characterized the course as challenging and well maintained."Concord is a lovely old course and a great place to play," commented veteran golfer Mary Ann McGuire, who tees off at Concord every season. Concord's 500 plus members, many of whom are families and half of whom live in and around West Chester,bought the club just over the Chester County line in far northwesternConcord Township three years ago. They paid $5.2 million for the 182 acre oasis to Garrett Copeland, son of the late Lamont duPont Copeland, the club's longtime owner. The club is tucked away behind towering pine trees on the east side of Route 202, just north of Route 1. Concord's first owner, the Wilmington Country Club, used the club as a "holding tank" for people vying for membership at the blue blood Wilmington enclave, according to Good. Today, the club has five tennis courts, an Olympic size pool, a two story clubhouse and other amenities. Weather permitting during this odd and soggy spring, golfers are already teeing off on the par 75 course despite its mud and uprooted trees. Manytees, plus 23 of the club's 63 bunkers, are in the throes of being rebuilt, in part to make the course "more equitable" for women, junior and older golfers without the power to master the 6,500 foot course, Good explained. Clubhouse renovation will include enlarging and possibly moving the pro shop, plus expanding the two kitchens and the club's banquet and party facilities.
