Prior to its rebuild in 2014, the Cottonwood Country Club had served its membership for over forty years. In order to meet the needs of Holladay’s growing community, EDA reenvisioned the Cottonwood Country Club clubhouse as a landmark destination in the Salt Lake valley, featuring contemporary amenities and modern design.

The site offers enviable views to the nearby mountains of the Wasatch Range and natural water features that flow through the site. Juxtaposed against this backdrop, the building stands solidly on a foundation of cast concrete, on which the imprint of board-formed wood grain evokes the surrounding woody landscape. A dramatic porte-cochere frames the club’s entrance, inviting visitors into the stick-framed wood lobby.

The interior of the building features central circulation, providing connection between dining, banquet rooms, decks, pools and tennis courts.
