(Kingwood, TX) -- Kingwood Country Club at The Clubs of Kingwood, a member of the ClubCorp family of clubs and the heart of the Kingwood community,  recently  held a groundbreaking ceremony  to mark the beginning of a multimillion-dollar renovation project.

When completed, the newly transformed clubhouse will feature two contemporary and casual dining facilities, a bar and grill featuring food inspired by Texas flavors, a new outdoor patio complete with fire tables for relaxing or celebrating after a round of golf or tennis, and the addition of a high-tech media lounge and spectacular new outdoor covered patio.
