|:||The design of the Whistling Rock Golf Clubhouse is rooted in the beautiful mountainous surrounds of the site. Resting gently atop a rugged mountain ridge, the luxurious clubhouse is designed to carefully fit the delicate site. The elongated white building stands out as a floating belvedere. Sandwiched between two horizontal planes of white travertine, the building’s extensive glass and timber-framed facade grants visitors magnificent views of the golf course and surrounding nature. A composition of indoor and outdoor courtyards creates diverse spaces and sculpture gardens, each with its own identity. The clubhouse resembles a museum where members and visitors are invited to celebrate culture as well as nature. The simple forms and white floors and ceilings ensure balance throughout the building. Dotted along the route of the 27-hole golf course are 3 tea houses that offer scenic stops for players to rest.|
