The Durham, N.C. club will revamp its dining facility, refresh banquet rooms, and make enhancements to the entry hallways, restrooms and meeting rooms. Hope Valley also named Albert Rosa as Executive Chef and added a Catering & Event Sales Director.
Hope Valley Country Club, a member-owned private golf club in Durham, N.C., announced renovations to the nearly 100-year-old clubhouse that will exceed $1.5 million. Plans include a revamped dining facility, refreshed banquet rooms, and enhancements to the entry hallways, restrooms, and meeting rooms. Renovations are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.
The highlight of the renovations will be the transformed Dover Dining Room, which will serve as a modern upscale restaurant. The restaurant is centrally located in the clubhouse to give diners spanning views of the surrounding golf course and the two swimming pools. The Dover will have both communal spaces as well as private dining tables and cozy booths for those looking for a more intimate dining experience.
The centrally located bar will also provide views of the golf course. A large communal table will serve groups of diners.
Along with the refreshed dining facility, Hope Valley Country Club welcomed Chef Albert Rosa as its new Executive Chef. Chef Rosa joins Hope Valley from Naples, Florida, where he developed his trademark haute-cuisine style and worked for multiple private country clubs.
Following graduation from the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Rosa trained under Executive Chef Christian Rassinoux at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel where he studied the craft of both French and American cuisine. He looks forward to sharing his creativity and innate understanding of fresh seafood and quality produce with diners at the Dover Room.

The principals of Bobby Jones Links own the company - we are not driven by investor expectations and pressures. Our balance sheet is strong.
As a result, we don’t leverage our operational leadership across too many clubs. And unlike many companies in our business, we don’t require long term management agreements with large breakup fees. If you like what we do, you’ll keep us. For more than two decades our clients have renewed our management services more than any other company.
