Partnering with DTJ Design for site planning and facilities planning, Chambers has led the interior design conceptualization and direction to reposition the Renegade Clubhouse to enhance connection to the golf course and practice facilities. After careful consideration of member feedback related to their current and desired experience, the design team determined it would be necessary to tear down the existing structure and build new to meet member needs. Chambers studied every square inch of the tight site to determine the ideal location for a new, repositioned structure to address inefficiencies while enhancing the overall experience for decades to come.


The new building position provides enhanced site lines to the 1st and 18th holes, while improving the overall connection to the world-renowned golf course and practice facilities. The design expresses the Native American heritage in a fresh, progressive style that incorporates stone, wood, metal, and glass with a desert contemporary, “feather-light” roof. A welcoming entrance with a layered entry portal to the garden lobby frames the grand mountain views beyond and incorporates a refined, elegant desert landscape palette.

Inside, the new Club experience begins with a breathtaking entry sequence, which draws guests in from the front door to an inviting lounge area with a fireplace and soft seating. Once inside, the space opens up to reveal a magnificent bar, which draws members in towards a casual yet sophisticated social atmosphere.

Straight ahead, the new dining space features expansive ceiling heights and a beautiful wood ceiling. The exterior wall is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows that are complemented by clerestory windows, flooding the space with natural light. The operable window wall enables the space to transform between an enclosed restaurant aesthetic to an open-air, indoor-outdoor experience.

Adjacent to this space, an additional dining area provides expanding seating capacity with a nearby private dining room. Both dining areas have direct access to a 2,850 SF outdoor dining terrace, which leads to multiple courtyards and patios provide hubs for socializing and entertaining. In total, outdoor terraces and patios provide members with almost 6,000 SF of outdoor living space.

The rear façade celebrates a dramatic “indoor-outdoor” club experience with layered roofs and sunscreens to provide comfortable dining and lounge spaces for all seasons. The Clubhouse features an expansive covered outdoor space with a dining patio and fireplace chimney/feature wall. Distinctive water elements integrate within the refined desert landscape palette.

Throughout the process, the design team carefully studied the cultural history of the Club to ensure the new design respects the vision for the original Clubhouse, which dates back to the mid-1980s. The new Clubhouse stays true to its original design roots, but with a fresh, contemporary update that will captivate generations to come.
