Jefferson Park Golf Course Clubhouse – Seattle WA

Description

"This clubhouse was built by the city of Seattle in connection with one of its public golf courses that are included in the city park and recreation areas.

The building has a small basement, a first floor, and a partial second floor. The heating plant occupies the basement; the first floor contains a spacious living room, locker rooms for men and women, a dining room, lunchroom, and kitchen facilities; and the second floor has quarters for the custodian.

The basement and first floors are concrete, but otherwise this building is frame with exterior brick veneer walls.

The project was completed in September 1936 at a construction cost of $29,225 and a project cost of $31,037."
(Short and Brown)

The clubhouse is currently being considered for demolition, but there is a movement to have it preserved as a historical landmark.

    After reading numerous articles involving the potential preservation of the historic clubhouse, it appears the demolition of the clubhouse eventually occurred and was replaced with the current two-story clubhouse and driving range. Another piece of Seattle history is gone forever.
