PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, MI – Blythefield Country Club has begun work on the second phase of their clubhouse expansion and renovations. The planned improvements will bring an additional 25,000 square feet to their dining, banquet and athletic facilities in Belmont, Michigan.

“The natural beauty of our location, the hospitality of our staff and the experience of our membership will be enhanced through this expansion in operations,” said Bob Crissman, CCM, Blythefield General Manager and COO. “Our members have enjoyed hosting national profile events such as the Meijer LPGA Classic and recognize the need to grow capacity to match our increasing leadership role in the community.

As families seek community and connection in the growing Grand Rapids metropolitan area, this project reflects a significant investment from increasing membership at the historic club. The plans include new dining amenities alongside renovated kitchen operations to expedite service delivery. A new pro shop, men’s and women’s locker room will be built with future improvements planned for the aquatic center.

The project is managed by Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Wolverine Building Group serving as the general contractor. The planned improvements are designed by Paradigm Design and Henrickson Architecture + Planning, with support from Construction Simplified.

About Blythefield Country Club

Home of the Meijer LPGA Classic, the historic Blythefield Country Club was established in 1928 by financier Joseph Brewer. Blythefield’s time-tested golf course was a design of William B. Langford (1887-1977) and Theodore J. Moreau (1890-1942). The word “Blythefield” is derived from Old English and means quiet fields.
