Bryanston Country Club to develop a new children’s clubhouse

As part of its drive to become more family friendly, Bryanston Country Club is developing a children’s clubhouse, which will be used as an entertainment and education facility for the little ones while parents enjoy participating in one of the many activities on offer at the club.

Club general manager, Paul Leishman, says that the new centre is being fully sponsored by Pam Golding Properties (PGP), who will have naming rights to the facility. The clubhouse will be developed alongside the existing children’s playground with its jungle gyms, swings and mini-scooter track, and is expected to be completed in March 2015 in time for the Easter holidays.
“We are thrilled to be able to develop this facility,” adds Leishman. “For some time we have seen the need for a centre in which children can be accommodated and entertained, particularly on days when the weather is poor and they are not able to play outdoors. The facility will be equipped with video games and used for a variety of indoor games and activities. It will also have a covered balcony with chairs and tables where children will be able to play.”
Leishman says that five years ago the Bryanston Country Club decided to transform itself into a less formal, more family orientated facility to accommodate the changing needs of the residents of Bryanston. He explains that the demographics of the community itself have changed in recent years with many more younger families now residing in the area.
“At first some of the older members were not sure about the new direction the Club was taking, but as many of them were grandparents themselves, they soon came to see the many benefits of the new approach,” adds Leishman. “Families are now able to come together and enjoy a day at the Club, which has become increasingly popular with the Bryanston community.”
According to Leishman, Bryanston Country Club has a range of activities available to the children of members and their visitors. Holiday programmes enable the children to participate in art and other projects, and birthday parties are frequently hosted. He says that golf and tennis coaching is also available for the youngsters.
Child minders are available between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm over the weekends (or for extended hours during special club events) allowing parents time off to enjoy the golf, swimming, bowling, squash, tennis or other activities available. The Club also has a full service clubhouse complete with restaurants, lapa and function and event venues offering members and guests the very best in personal attention and service.
Leishman suggests that the new children’s clubhouse will take the Bryanston Country Club’s facilities for children to a much higher level and thanked PGP for making the vision of the club a reality. “The club has had a long relationship with Pam Golding Properties that has been mutually rewarding and we are most grateful to the group for its support of the Club and its members,” he notes.
Property agents Dominic Courtney and Blyth Marrier agree that PGP has enjoyed an increasingly close relationship with Bryanston Country Club over the years. The property group has sponsored Club draws, monthly draws, the Easter Festival and golf days such as the annual Phoenix Tournament, the Driving-in Ceremony and Ladies Golf Day. PGP also recently sponsored a number of umbrellas for the veranda at the clubhouse.
“The Bryanston Country Club is such an integral part of a vibrant, family-orientated community,” notes Courtney.  “As a family orientated business that prides itself on its community outreach programmes, Pam Golding Properties believes it shares many synergies with the Club. We are proud to be able to assist with the development of the children’s clubhouse, which is an expression of our commitment to serving the needs of the Bryanston community.”
