Our team at S. Watts Group completed groundbreaking construction of several buildings at the Driftwood Golf Club and Ranch. This world-class location offers members a warm and inviting clubhouse layout, allowing members to mingle while they relax and prepare for the round. Another highlight of this project that our team is proud of, Driftwood’s two Comfort Stations: an indulgence for members looking for a break along the course or a mid round pick-me-up. The Comfort Stations offer snacks and drinks on the go, yard games for the family, a full service bar, and barbeque pits.
