A Grand Opening at St. Peters’ new Golf & Banquet Center on Oct. 21 served as a “Thank you!” to the community for your support that made the Prop Q quality of life project a reality.
The 350-person capacity Water’s Edge Banquet Center was a welcome gathering point for guests, who were treated with free food, beverages and giveaways. Visitors seemed at home, whether in the elegant banquet salons, comfortable and airy pre-function area, casual Caddy’s bar and grill, or outside on the beautiful lakeside veranda.
Visitors were first met with an impressive new entrance to St. Peters Golf Club at Salt Lick Road and Veterans Memorial Parkway. A landscaped pond and road lined with decorative fencing and bollard lighting leads the way to a newly paved parking lot and beautiful new Golf & Banquet Center. Guests can find plenty of vantage points to take in striking lakeside views—especially with a spacious veranda that spans along Caddy’s and Water’s Edge Banquet Center. Steps lead from the veranda down to a new 2,880-square-foot golf and event tournament pavilion—christened the Jerry B. Hollingsworth Event Pavilion during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Mayor Len Pagano said that the pavilion was named in honor of St. Peters Alderman Jerry Hollingsworth for his decades of service to residents, non-profit and community organizations, and support for the golf club. Hollingsworth has been an alderman since 1992.
Mayor Pagano noted that no other community in our area has a municipal golf club. He welcomed the new Golf & Banquet Center as another impressive jewel in St. Peters’ crown, and he thanked voters for making the project possible by passing the Prop Q bond issue in August 2016.
The project replaced an aging and outdated structure with an ideal meeting place offering 26,771 square feet of beautiful event space for business meetings, anniversaries, class reunions, charity events and weddings. Business is off to a great start. Most Saturday wedding dates are booked through 2020. Golf tournaments are up 43% in 2019 over 2018. And, food and beverage sales doubled in September 2019 compared with September 2018 ($15,000 to $30,000), mainly because golfers are staying to dine at Caddy’s.
