The View at Colony West Celebrates the Clubhouse as Tamarac’s Community Gathering Place
(TAMARAC, Fla.) – The City of Tamarac will celebrate the grand opening of the reconstructed Colony West clubhouse and restaurant with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, May 25, at 4 p.m.
The City of Tamarac, in partnership with Indigo Golf Partners, will dedicate the new clubhouse and restaurant at Colony West Golf Club, located at 6800 NW 88th Avenue. Aptly named, The View at Colony West, the world-class restaurant and banquet facility will provide residents and visitors alike with a full-service dining and event space.
The 3,000-square foot event center will host a range of functions from golf outings, sports banquets, birthday celebrations, business and community meetings. Each meeting space comes with stunning vistas of the golf course and pond. The facility also offers an elegant backdrop for quinceañeras and weddings. The clubhouse features a full-service bridal suite, equipped with a private dressing room, shower and wedding party space.
The accompanying 1,800-square foot restaurant will offer American-style cuisine influenced by Caribbean flavors, reflective of the local community’s cultural diversity. The View features main dining room and patio seating for up to 48 guests. The bar will host up to 14 guests. Doors open daily at 11 a.m. for lunch and dinner service.
“The View will be an absolute gamechanger for Colony West and the Tamarac community as a whole,” says Bill Weller, general manager of Colony West Golf Club. “With a welcoming atmosphere and an exceptional dining experience, our new restaurant and event space will not only be ideal for special events and functions, but a place where unforgettable memories are born.”
Opened in 1971 for the Jackie Gleason Classic, now the Honda Classic, the Championship Course was designed by Devlin and von Hagge. It debuted as one the longest par-72 layouts in the country at 7,553 yards. Today, it is still a long-walk as a par-71, 7,258-yard course, with narrow fairways, deep rough and plenty of water. Strategic bunkering protects small, well-manicured greens, requiring players to think their way around the course to take advantage of scoring opportunities.
On the west side of the property is the Glades Course. The Glades is a par-64 executive course that plays only 4,175 yards and provides guests with a welcome change of pace.
