Hemmed In, Wellesley Makes
Maximum Use of Its Acres
Acquisition of adjacent estate, development of tightlyknit site plan, enable Mass. club to retain old ties
By R I C H A R D G .
MANKEY

Manchester, Conn.
T\>Tushrooming suburbia are a recognized
phenomena — deplored by some,
lauded by others, acknowledged by all.
Caught in a pattern of providing living
space for an expanded populace are many
old, well-established and active country
clubs. Located a few years ago in quiet
countryside, they are now hemmed in by
road networks, homes, stores, and all the
other suburban trappings. Almost gone is
the possibility of acquisition of adjacent
land of any appreciable area. Very frequently sky-rocketing land values put a
terrific pressure on the membership to
sell out and relocate farther out — possibly to repeat the process some 20 to 25
years hence.
Many well established clubs resist this
pressure because they value the ties with
the past represented in their existing
course and clubhouse. Some have a membership that doesn't want a change in location, and feels that the convenience of
a location close to the geographical center
of the membership has many decided advantages. For these clubs modernization
and expansion of their facilities become
necessary or desirable to provide fuller
services and thus maintain an established
position in the inevitable competition with
the newer clubs. At the same time, an addition to the membership base in financing
modernization and expansion becomes
very desirable if not essential.
Facilities Not The Best
For several years prior to 1960 the
Wellesley (Mass.) CC had in many respects been facing this problem. Established in 1910 approximately eleven miles
from the heart of downtown Boston, with
an existing building as a clubhouse and
with a 9-hole course, the Wellesley group
has over the years built up a tradition as
an extremely active social, golf and tennis
club. Within recent years the club has
been faced with the shortcomings of a 9hole course, an inadequate pro shop, rundown men's locker room facilities, no
women's locker room worthy of the name,
inadequate kitchen facilities, and no separate men's eating and lounge area.
Option Turned Down
In 1960, the club was offered an option
on a complete nearby estate with more
than adequate, although rocky, acreage
for an 18-hole course and an existing
estate house as a possible building nucleus. By close votes on two different occasions the membership decided in favor
of remaining at its present location. Tacit
acknowledgment was thereby given the
need for improvement of the old course
and clubhouse in the near future.
Working to this end after many previous refusals, Walter Spangler, chairman of
the club's development committee, was
able to convince the only major adjacent
land owner, a parochial vocationalagricultural secondary school, to sell some
49 abutting acres to the club.
With the existing course and new acreage to work with, Architect Geoffrey Cornish set about designing an 18-hole layout. Under the direction of Don Kelleher,
Wellesley's supt., four holes in the immediate vicinity of the clubhouse were relocated to allow for five new tennis courts,
approximately two to three times as much
parking area, and a proposed addition to
the building. With five of the existing
holes remaining, 13 new ones including
the four mentioned above, and with a
completely new green, tee, and fairway
automatic watering system installed, the
course emerged as a full blown championship course.
Many Additions Needed
In analyzing the physical setup at Wellesley, our firm sought to find ways to
add to the existing clubhouse to provide
a new pro shop, lounge, lockerroom, kitchen, etc. This was in an area that was seriously restricted by an existing public
road, swimming pools, social terraces and
tennis courts. Significant features of the
plans as built and in operation at this
writing are:
A. Development of a tightly knit site
plan stressing maximum usage of all
areas and close interrelation among social
terraces, golfers' terraces, circulation and
access walks, the first tee, the tennis
courts, the swimming pools, etc. Studied
D i a g r a m of clubhouse, recreation a n d p a r k i n g a r e a s
a t W e l l e s l e y . C o u r s e f a n s o u t t o t h e r i g h t of this
general area.
landscaping of the foregoing with proper
shrubbery, ground cover, small flowering
trees, etc.
B. A two-level clubhouse wing addition
made necessary by the extremely limited
land area and connected to the existing
clubhouse by a one-level lounge service
area — a one time integrated solution to
avoid the common piecemeal, moneywasting construction of many clubs.
C. In the two-level wing a modern, at—
grade level pro shop adjacent to the
newly relocated first tee. On the upper
level an expanded men's lockerroom over
the pro shop. This was to be up a half
flight from the main floor and have lockers designed to serve small groups with
high natural light and ventilation.
D. A complete separation of the service and social activities of the club in a
major reassessment of these functions. Instead of the previous intermingling of the
two, a new isolated direct service access
through the existing building basement
and by dumbwaiter up to a centrally located kitchen area.
E. Concentration of all food preparation
in one centrally located kitchen to service formal and informal dining areas in
any one of three directions, and avoided
duplication of expensive kitchen equipment.
